Design: The sans serif label name is shaped to fit the available space in typical 1940s fashion (compare with the the Roost label). The thick-and-thin broken borders help the image achieve a 'reflective' quality, much like a silver coin, while the geometric decoration hints at 'Aztec' patterning (compare with similar treament on the Argentinian Odeon label).

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of U.S. collector John Anderson.
