I'm not sure if this is the same disc we've seen previously, but Michael 
Feinstein has pointed out that it's definitely not the only existing copy of 
Kate's first performance of God Bless America. A copy is in the New York Public 
Library and the audio is identical to the sample this seller previously posted. 
(Was this also once cited as being a glass lacquer? It would definitely not be 
an original in that case since glass discs weren't in use in the US in 1938.)

Buy it now for $7000..yeah, right.
