Hi, Andrew.

Those are just two examples given by IASA.  IASA gives you the
specific material designation "sound disc" and a limited list of
specific format terms to qualify it, then suggests that "additional
format terms may be added as appropriate".  So you can follow the same
rule and just supply a commonly-used term like "metal stamper".  This
is a common feature of cataloging rules, individual institutions are
expected to develop local controlled vocabularies expanding upon the
given list of terms, based on their specific needs.  So...

1 sound disc (metal mother)
1 sound disc (lacquer)
1 sound disc (metal stamper)
