Up for bid is an original 1939-40 Cinematone Studios Penny Phono record.
Tune of the Week "Santa Claus is Coming to Town"
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 (V) condition, still has some gloss, and some light surface marks. No warp or cracks. Label is excellent. Sleeve has tears and splits.
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.
