Description


Nickel-plated metal ‘mother’ disc for the Tollie Records single, ‘P. S. I Love You,’ with serial number 63-3189 etched in the matrix trail-off, produced in 1964, the year of its original release. Framed with an original 45 rpm record, a small photo of the band, and a commemorative plaque, to an overall size of 18.25 x 24.25. In fine condition, with the expected wear from production use, and some cracks to the glass. A key component of the record manufacturing process, survive in miniscule numbers, as after the mother 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 surviving discs 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.
