What is the cheapest Prince record you have ever bought?

Just noticed that no one has done this thread since 2003.

The record can be anything by Prince, but must be a record, single, cassette tape or CD, no dubbed items or downloads, mp3 trax etc. Must be a physical thing.

You can include Prince, any offical proteges (Only during Prince period so no Wendy n Lisa or Sex Cymbal albums by Sheila E included).

Stories about how you got them are funny too.

Mine are

1995: copies of For You and Prince on tape 50 cents each at a junk store in Dunedin New Zealand.

1997: Pulled a prince 45 single "1999/How come u don't call me anymore" off a reords on fishnet prop at a dance party. It didn't work well as some one had punched another hole as well to pin it to the net.

2004: Copy of America 12 inch for only 10 cents at Real Groovy Record, Auckland.

Got some kind of love for you, and I don't even know your name

20Ten was about 30p or something.

I made a small fortune on ebay selling copies to whining yanks who thought their world had ended because it never got a US release.
