I think a diamond needle worked just fine.  
These records seem to be made from a flexible material that could be softer than the shellac records of the period.  
A steel needle with a 6 ounce weight might have been a little rough on them.
You can watch one of these play on YouTube at:
It is a bit noisy but still enjoyable.

Nice find! Did they really require the use of a gold plated needle or 
was that a sales gimmick, and how long did those last? joe salerno On 6/22/2012 1:19 AM, Clifford Bolling wrote:
