only form of issue - relates exclusively to 78rpm issues, only those which are Pressed from Original Masters.
Scroll - relates exclusively to the best period of Victor, always featuring the Scroll Label, mid-1930's,

Z Shellac - relates exclusively to the best pressings ever produced by Victor, mid-1930's,
found on PW, Orth (Orthophonic), but primarily on Scroll Labels, always offering remarkably quiet surfaces,
identifiable by the minuscule "z" found only in the upper portion of the inner margin of the shellac.
In the event that there is no “z” embossed in such pressings, they will be identified as being “z-type shellac.”

preceded (chronologically) by their notable Blue Shellac Pressings.
