Question about limited print vinyl

I've come into ownership of a complete collection of framed smiths vinyls. (all studio albums/rank/two compilations-LTB/TWWL)

I'd like to know if anyone could give me information regarding them. I've been told they were released around '87 once the smiths split up and were limited edition with the printing number on the front.

If anyone has any info/pricing on them, I'd like to know your estimates.

Doesn't ring any bells I'm afraid. Some photos might be useful.

Once I read this thread, I quickly went to go check out Discogs to help me confirm your question.
I believe(correct me If I'm wrong) that the collection you have were released from WEA.
Although pictures would be a big help. I did find these, but the years and inches of each record differ.

The Smiths - The Smiths:

The Smiths - Meat Is Murder:
http://www.discogs.com/Smiths-Meat-Is-Murder/release/1925942

Here's some images that I could find that resemble the closest to what you're explaining:




If those are the ones you're referring to. They came out in 1993.
Also, they should be 10", correct?
As for prices, some are up for sale for about 30$-100$ I could be wrong!
Check out Discogs. Some are up for sale at different prices



I've yet to see a numbered Louder Than Bombs! A picture would be appreciated!


EDIT: I might be wrong on the year. It looks like some came out in 1993. A few have came out earlier(Rank-1988.)

ah yes these are the ones that I have framed. I'm pretty certain I've a Louder Than Bombs Pressing I'll have to check tomorrow to clarify - they're wrapped up at the minute as moved into a flat with no room for them.

I was always told that they did no more than 5K of each (no LTB). All the ones I have are numbered less that 5K (none of the ones pictured are above 5K). The only other issue is that they made UK ones and I think French ones. So that would make 10K in all. Maybe someone else can clean up my mess here but I always heard 5K each. When is passions coming back online?

Pressing of 5000 is correct, I remembered buying some of these titles back in 1995 at a discounted rate in princeton university record shop. I have numbers all under 5000. My Queen Is Dead 10" has French and Wea copyrights , plus a white "Made in u.k." sticker pasted on the front.
