A paste-over label dating from pre-WWI and extremely rare. They are paste-over labels; the example here is pasted over Coliseum No. 231, but as it is the only example I know of, I don't know if other record labels are to be found underneath other examples, nor what the reason for this is. Note that the label states it was made in Berlin, so it must be pre-WWI while this Coliseum issue was still in the catalogue. A puzzle!

Please e-mail me with details of ANY of these records. Thanks to Bill Dean-Myatt for providing the label photo.
