The first two labels are considered "Pre-Dog" labels, as they lack the famous Nipper logo yet to be used.

The now famous logo appears showing a dog named Nipper looking into a phonograph and is called "His Masters Voice." The original painting was done by Francis Barraud. The 7" version was labeled "Victor Record" (this one from 1904) and the 10" version was labeled "Monarch Record."There is a type with the logo on it before this one that I do not have any examples of.

The first ones started with five lines of patent information along the bottom half of the record.

The first two end with an August 1908 patent date and third ends with a June 1910 patent date.

"His Master's Voice" first appeared on Gramophone Co.

labels in August 1910; earlier HMV releases are represses.

There is much published about them so I will not attempt to tell the story here. Note on both records the "lease agreement" on top half of the label. Next up that I have is the "Trademark" label with two examples (left).

The first example is the first type where the word Victor was used on the label and is a 7" example.

Earlier labels: Gramophone Record (7"), Gramophone Concert (10"), Gramophone Monarch (12").

Victor was the dominant figure in the record and phonograph market in the early 1900s. The second example is a 10" record which was called the Victor Monarch Record. By October 1901 Johnson incorporated as the Victor Talking Machine Company and replaced his name as the manufacturer.

This very early point Point Blanket with a red label is a 4 point size - referring to the 4 bars that appear to the right on the blanket.

This Hudson's Bay point Blanket also represents a wonderful piece of Canadian history, perfect for display or use.

It is not necessarily the very first serial number shipped, but it can be used to determine the approximate year your Ruger firearm was shipped.
