Here's the first of a few I obtained recently on ebay out of GB.

Coliseum's first type is very scarce - this is the third I'm aware of. There was one on the other side, but only fragments remained :(
I suspect it was quickly replaced as, being triangular, it fell foul of the regulations requiring "square in shape".
This Coliseum record is from 1912, the first year of the Regulations which came into effect July 1st 1912.

The second type below is on a 1914 record.

Australian E.W. Cole's 1d Mechanical Copyright Stamp on mid-1920's US pressed Lincoln 78rpm record. Cole's stamps are one of the few that actually specify the "Mechanical" bit of the royalties being collected.

Lincoln was one of several mass-market US labels "dumped" onto the Australian market at that time, which helped fuel the growth of the local record pressing industry in response.

There are multiple (long) threads here about music copyright stamps. Can they be combined, please?

No thanks, each serves a separate purpose.

While browsing the many Broadcast 78rpm records listed on discogs.com for an article I'm writing, I found a few bearing copyright stamps from a Belgian issuer unknown to me (and so not yet catalogued) - Editions Pelgrims.

The green ones appeared about twice as often as the blue ones, and some of the green ones bore a handstamped "B", in two sizes.

Broadcast and Chantal records were all produced under the auspices of Vocalion, and one Chantal record also bears a catalogued Chantal stamp. The records date from around 1930, which ties to the Pelgrims firm being founded in 1929 (by Eugene Willy Pelgrims de Bigard, a Belgian baron).
