This is a very unique little record for recording your voice right on to the record. Quite a sophisticated technology for the time period when the Megaphone was in use.
Here is the wording on the wrapper.
Take this metal disc and play it as you would any ordinary recond on a phonograph. To obtain the best results use a loud tone needle. Sing into the sound box loudly and distinctly. If possible use a megaphone. When you have finished, play it over again and hear YOUR VOICE.
It is advisable before using to let the needle go once over the disc to remove dust particles which may have accumulated.
If any one has any information on the exact time period these were issued - would appreciate learning about it.
I know that Edison discs where introduced in 1930 using a unique machine to record the voice - as I have serveral of these.
Thanks for looking
