This is a group of 10 very rare Improved Gram-O-Phone Records made by the Consolidated Talking Machine Company. They are 7 inch discs. They are all in nice condition with some light scratches. Some labels show a little more wear than the others. The backs all have the legal disclaimer label.

The Improved Gram-O-Phone Record label was the first label founded by Eldridge R. Johnson. Recordings were pressed on seven-inch discs and manufactured by the Consolidated Talking Machine Company, which would later become the Victor Talking Machine Company after a merger with Berliner Gramophone. On March 1, 1901, Johnson was prohibited from using "Gram-O-Phone" as part of the label name as a result of a court ruling, so the new label name for his seven-inch discs became Improved Record.

The following is a list of the records with their serial number;
