Indeed Paul. The Moody Bible Institute copy was acquired in 1941 from an
auction house. One of the reasons the reissues of it sound so poor is
that -- and this is gained from my analysis of the disc as well as
following the Moody Bible correspondence -- that they wore it out trying
to find ways to play it back effectively with the wrong equipment. Those
grooves are tiny and very close together; the track doesn't even take up
half the playing surface of the disc. The grooving on the outer edge of
the record was very white and worn.

I have seen a copy of this disc --- no. 662.  It was in private hands
and 
went, I believe, to another private collector.  So, there may be at
least 
two copies extant (assuming the Institute did not obtain the disc from
the  
private collector.)

Richard,

I appreciate this sentiment, as there are many of  us collectors who
have
no Berliners. Last year during a research project I  handled the Moody
Bible Institute's copy of Dwight L. Moody's "Sermon on  the Mount" which
I believe is the only copy in existence. It was like a  magic object to
me, irradiating a special presence and property that say a  Banner
record
from the 1920s does not have.
