I would think that people should send what they could afford within reason. Some folks might have more money than others. Probably the price of a tape would be a good place to start, from there it could vary. This is really based more on honor than anything else

Of course, Ron is right. I only posted my message to encourage anyone who felt that s/he could afford to send more than the $.25 mentioned by rlc to do so. It is perhaps too easy to just to revel in the opportunity to obtain such wonderful recordings for almost nothing and to forget how little those who created the music have benefited through the years. I shared my own thought process only in the hope that it would trigger similar ones in a few others. I did not mean to imply any bad faith on any else's part, nor to set any "market value" for such recordings. I apologize if I offended anyone.
