Design: The script-written name, with underlining swash, is displayed across the top of the label. The decorative mantling supporting the heraldic shield at the top centre mimicks Victor's earlier 'bat-wing' design.

History: When Victor's patent on lateral cutting was successfully challenged in 1919, Brunswick was one of many companies to immediately begin making laterally-cut records, turning their focus from the Canadian to the U.S. market. A radically new label design was pasted onto the last few Canadian "jewel-point" (vertical-cut) records.
