78rpm Label Varieties

We make use of many different abbreviations to describe the various labels and label varieties offered in our auctions. These can be very confusing for new collectors and/or those who have not studied the books that have been published which address these issues. To aid our bidders in understanding the primary varieties one encounters for various major labels, we have assembled several label galleries.

Many of these images are taken from the American Record Label Image Encyclopedia (ARLIE), a CD-ROM containing over 1100 full color label images issued in the United States prior to World War II.
