As I have looked at some promo 45's, I noticed hand stamped #'s on a few. I assume these are the same type of numbers I've seen on promo lps. Is there a name for these? Was it just for the labels to see how many promos they were sending out? Thanks-m

it's always a radio station library number, i've never seen a pro 45 that was numbered sequentially.

are you wondering how the radio station stamped the numbers on the records and kept track of where they were? there's a mechanical stamping machine that each time you press it down it stamps a number and automatically advances to the next number. i currently have one, don't know what i'm going to do with it.

Pretty cool! I envision it being similar to the library book card stamper. Thanks Wurlitzer- m
