I suspect this is a sampler record for dealers for the DV Deluxe Red Seal 78 series.

There is an obliterated mx no on s. 1 as well as "81." Side 2 is "82" and
has no mx no. No bands between selections
It begins with a 1K tone, followed by exc from piece for Piano and Orch I
don't recognize (Khach?), 4 exc, three the same at different pitches, from
Sheherazade , 2 from Capriccio Espagnole, 1 from Die Mestersinger Overture,
two from Dance of the Apprentices, 1 from the Enigma Var.,one from Shost 9?,
then another 1K tone.
Same on the 2d side.
