Design: Symmetry has been carefully preserved, with the legal jargon positioned around the spindle-hole and the 'double note' logo appearing four times.

History: The British version of Columbia was known as Columbia-Rena. Musicologist and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K. notes: "Columbia, Rena and Columbia-Rena were, in effect, all the same, as the Columbia label went through various name changes. Popular titles could appear under all three variations."
