I bet now you know, you can really hear the difference between it, and the others you've got. I think they are the best sounding records of their era. I'm yet to come across any shellac record of the late twenties that sound so clear and crisp. Another way to tell an electric recording, is by the number at the bottom of the label. They are all in the 18,000s (except 18000 itself, which is accoustic)
Finnish: 59305-59306 Spanish/Cuban: 60063-60078 60063 is the earliest, released DD electrical matrix. German: 57025-57034 52089 to 52651 for the 50,000 series 80885 to 80907 for the 80,000 series 82351 to 82360 for the 82,000 series Please remember that the 82500 series was not part of the 82000 series.
Electrically dubbed Blue Amberols did not begin until 5650 and even after that electrical dubs were sporadic until 5700 after which all dubs were electric.
