Description


Nickel-plated metal ‘Mother’ Disc for the Tollie Records single, ‘Twist and Shout,’ with 63-3194 etched in the matrix trail-off, produced in 1964, the year of its original release in the US. Framed with a commemorative plaque and photo to an overall size of 18 x 24.5. In very good condition, with the expected wear from production use. These ‘mother’ discs, a key component of the record manufacturing process, survive in miniscule numbers, as after the disc was used to create the ‘stamper’ (the actual metal disc that was used to press or ‘stamp’ records), it was routinely recycled. A multitude of mothers and stampers are made and then discarded during the record-making process for each side of a record. Most of the few known survivors were presumably culled from record pressing plant reference files where an example of each title may have been kept. This copy originated from a former record company insider. An oddity to be sure, but these exceedingly rare discs are highly prized by many record collectors. RRAuction COA.
