I have a similar record - except the number is 3342-B-4-? a small mark
obscures the digit after the 4. It could be a way of establishing whether
the governer in the Edison phonograph produced wow. Maybe a pantograph from
a mechanical source could have provided the original tone e.g. mechanical in
origin -not audio-Mickey
