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.
