This is a 12" variable speed record made specifically for the rare Penny Phono record machines of the period.
Penny phono records were created in a specialized Hollywood Studio--the only coin operated phonograph manufacturer in the world making both the phonograph and the records. These were made for the Cinematone Penny Phono jukebox, by Cinematone. Only made in 1939-40 -- and both the players and the records are very rare now.
This record is in E- condition, one or two light scuffs, still some gloss. Clean! No warp or cracks. Cinematone label is in excellent condition. Notes on tracks from previous owner included.
Record will be carefully packed with heavy cardboard box, bubble wrap, etc. and shipped via USPS with delivery tracking/confirmation.
Penny Phono Jukebox made by Cinematone Corporation played the very special records which were made in Cinematone Studios exclusively for their jukeboxes and featured 10 tracks per record. These special variable speed records were distributed weekly by mail to the owners, bars, clubs, soda shops, containing the Penny Phono Jukebox machines.
