Re: [ARSCLIST] Proper way to store 78s
The biggest threat to 78s is albums, particularly the kind that hold
a dozen records which were very standard at one point. Leafing
through the pages with the album flat on a table will put cracks on
the edges of records. If records are in albums, leaf through the
album standing on edge.

is full, or very close thereof!
Since 78's weigh about 1/2 lb. (227 grams) each, the bottom record
pile of 100 discs has 50 lb. (22.7 kg) of weight on it! In fact,
occasionally run across 78's which have reversed record numbers
(raised on the disc on top) permanently impressed in them!
