I found this today at an antique shop in a nearby town. This is new to me , as I have never owned an album of this size before. A regular 33 1/3 album measures 11 & 7/8 inches across and this one measures a whopping 15 & 15/16 inches across !!The information on this Label says the Veteran Administration had it recorded. I will hang it on my Musik wall as there is no way I can play it. Any info would be appreciated !

    The military used lots of these oversized records. They played on a special machine they had. I had several of these myself. I found a huge stack at a resale store. I picked out what I wanted and left. Realizing I wanted the rest, I went back, and they were all gone. As they say,"if you snooze, you loose!"

    Thank's Pack, I was surprised to find these, as I have never encountered them before. There were several more there. Do you think I should go back and buy more? How rare are these Pack?

    I have not been able to find any value for these. I would go get them just because thet are interesting.

    Thank You Rob , for that extra information on this "discovery", for me at least. You would think that I would have run across these in Thirty years of Record collecting, but this is a first for me !!
