In going through my Edison Diamond Disc Records by tenor GIOVANNI MARTINELLI
I find that  the serial numbers & take indications (usually a letter but a
number in some cases) are not uniform:


82036    TOSCA: Recondita armonia (1215-A)/TOSCA: E lucevan le stelle

82351    AIDA: Celeste Aida (19047-A)/MARTHA: M'appari (19050-A)

82505    TOSCA: E lucevan le stelle (mirror image 1516-2)/VENETIAN
INSTRUMENTAL QT. - Sweet Spirit Hear My Prayer (mirror image 1208-2)

82507    MANON LESCAUT: Donna non vidi mai (mirror image 1235-14)/REED
MILLER - CAVALLERIA RUSTICANA: O Lola (Siciliana) (mirror image 2007-19)

82515    LA BOHEME: Che gelida manina (1229-2)/RIGOLETTO: La donna e mobile

82515    LA BOHEME: Che gelida manina (1229-A)/RIGOLETTO: La dionna e mobile


Can anyone sort this out, especially a numeral being used to designate take
instead of the usual letter?


Would especially like to hear what light experts Ron Dethlefson, George
Copeland or Christian Zwarg  could shed on this, assuming they are on the
list.   But would be happy to hear from any other collectors knowledgeable
about diamond discs.


If anyone has "E-mail" addresses for Ron & George I'd like to contact them
