    Need some help researching the specifics regarding some old vinyl records I’ve discovered going thru my late father’s estate. To be specific, there are ten records (five Columbia label and five RCA Victor-one of these is a children’s record) in their original paper jackets produced by the Nippon Columbia Co. Ltd. My father purchased them new in 1945/46 when he was part of the Allies Occupation forces stationed in Japan immediately after WW11. Also, they are in their original faux lime green alligator skin pressed board carrying case. Anyone???

    What I do know is, the original company was the Nippon phonograph Co.-founded in 1910. The Columbia name was adopted in 1931. And the changed it’s name to Nippon Columbia Co. Ltd. in 1945/46. After that very little.
