According to this biography Hum & Strum started to record in 1947 (18 
sides for Stellar).

At least some of the Copley issues may be reissues. See this list, for 
instance, where
"Nobody Knows What Happened to McCarthy" and "If I Knock the 'L' out of 
Kelly" are litsted both on Stellar and on Copley.

Bridget O'Flynn" and "Steve O'Donnell's Wake" were issued on a Stellar 78:

..and both songs are featured on a Copley 45:

Mx numbers can't be compared though - it seems Stellar used the 
catalogue number as mx number.
