There are 3 of these with what the Collector's Guide called the double
faced pressing label with the conditions printed on the label instead
of a sticker on the back.  All these are single sided, though.

These labels are pictured and discussed on page 210 in the new edition
of Sherman and Nauck's Collector's Guide To Victor Records.  Chinese
labels are discussed and pictured on pages 207-209 and Japanese on
210-212.  Joe, there is a First Prize format illustrated in the book but
that is different from these, which also are in the book.   Michael Biel mbiel at mbiel.com -------- Original Message -------- From: "neechevoneeznayou at gmail.com" <neechevoneeznayou at gmail.com> To me, they don't look all that different from US labels. I wonder if 
the words "Grand Prize" are somewhere in Japanese?   joe salerno On 3/14/2014 3:17 PM, Clifford Bolling wrote:
