As they stayed in the catalogue (note the Canuck spelling of catalog) up here, 
the words SWING CLASSIC stayed around the upper rim in small upper case letters 
and the personnel remained below the title, but the standard RCA VICTOR design 
incorporated at the end of 1946 replaced the batwing (note that we were a year 
late in going to that format). Can't find an illustration to show at the moment.
