    I found this record and a number of others like it when I got home after buying a large record collection I picked up at a Goodwill. I looked for the label all over the internet and couldn't find any records for sale like them. I then discovered they are actually from NARA. I contacted the Office of Inspector General and reported that I might have found some lost or stolen records. I was put in touch with a nice man from NARA who researched the records for a couple of months and confirmed that they did indeed come from the National Archives. The why and when they were made they are still looking into. They thanked me for reporting them and the best part is they have said they will not seek recovery of the items so I get to keep them. They look great in my collection and I can't wait to hear the different versions I have. Sadly I have to wait until I can get another record player as mine broke last year.
