I've bought hundreds of LPs off ebay and have never had a problem confirming stereo or mono.

Usually the LP will say if it is stereo, but in mono it will say nothing because that was the only format aviable.
A difference can be heard in depth and soundstaging. Hovever why Rwilson2 is getting confused in the high fidelity recordings. These along with certain mono pressings can sound much better than stereo. A perfect example is the King high fidelity recordings. If anyone has the Analogue Productions recording of Ben Websters' At the Renaissance, or better yet the mono recordings of Jay Miller of Excello Blues, or the legendary Jay Miller. sessions on Flyright. These far surpass even some of the best stereo recordings. Looks like Rwilson2 has a great of listening to do, and I envy him.
