Now as we look at this record. The same label, no special marks on it. Except that it does not have the three stars.
This is as late as we will go here and a late 1902 pressing of a Harry MacDonough. However look at the record and you will see the word VICTOR stamped on the wax. Obviously this was not done by the company in Camden as they knew their records. This was marked to exclude it from others being pressed. If you look very carefully to the far right of the number 1415 on the label is a small C.
It would be interesting to see how many recordings were exported in 1901. I just cannot think it would be many. but I am sure some were sent to Canada and to the offices of Emile Berliner.
The early years of the Consolidated and early Johnson label years were a time in which most of the pressings were made outside of the Philadelphia and Camden compound of the company. I have based this on a very limited scope of about 150 records of the 1900-1902 period. So I think that if you see stars...You are seeing a home produced recording from the 1900-1902 period. This is my guess for now.
