Up for bid is a collection of rare 1939-40 Cinematone Studios Penny Phono records.
These are two-sided 12" variable speed records 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.
