Most likely. Michael Sherman's book of Victor labels has evidence that 
RCA kept the batwing label alive for acoustic recordings right up until 
the mid-1940s or so. It's identical to the VTM label, except there are 
no patent notices and instead of Victor Talking Machine Company at the 
bottom, it says RCA Manufacturing Company.
