I hope the person who got them appreciates what he has here.  They went 
thru the auction twice with no bids the first time even though one was 
$24.95.  The $49.95 and $59.95 buy it nows are pretty reasonable.  I am 
wondering if the earlier one,  Prog 319, is a gold master since these 
are World Broadcasting System Western Electric masters.  Prog 526 is 
obviously nickel, but it also is a different matrix series with an H 
prefix.  Not World??

Yeah, me too.  I hope the buyer is part of the established OTR groups, 
and maybe we'll find more about them.
