Design: The slab-serif font used here for the label name is slightly different to that used on the American counterpart (note the different tail of the R), but the angled spinning disc in the background is missing. Tidy typography, as often the case with German printing.

History: Launched in the 1940s, a subsidiary of Decca. In the late 1960s, Coral would be absorbed by MCA. Label scan courtesy of collector Jukka Kettunen of Finland.
