Subject: [78-L] 1952 lacquer record question

Hello to whoever is left on this list!
I recently received a 1952 NBC Reference Recording #113 - a sound effects
record. It's called "Buzzing Sound" and penned in below that is "Flying
Saucers". It is a 78... BUT it looks to me as if it is meant to be played
with a LP stylus. The grooves per inch are high and the groove itself is far
thinner than that of a normal 78. Was this the case with other NBC
instantaneous discs from the time? - I want to avoid damaging the recording
by using a 2.7 mil 78 stylus if that is so. Thus my question.
