I'm gonna look over my Zappa albums (have most of his discography on both CD and vinyl) to see if they're the Verve/Bizzare press when I get home...that was my experience to the tee as far as paying between $12-$20 for used. I did reject $8 copies I saw of Sheik Yerbouti a couple of times as too good to be true and sure enough they were once I took them out of sleeve, smudges and scratches all over.
I did see an original press of Joe's Garage (the whole set) used for $60 and, in the only time I ever did this, bought a new for cheaper of $38.
Best deal I ever got was Led Zeppelin II for $5 that had only one minor smudge, but was priced that way according to guy at counter cuz' someone wrote their name really big in Sharpie on top left of sleeve.
