One of those random things I'm thinking while work is dead

Are there any cylinder record moulds left, the ones for making music cylinders, I'm intrigued as to what they looked like, or were they all melted down?

I believe Edison molds are still kept at the National Historic site and there are also some in private hands. Charlie Hummel used an original to re-issue this New Blue Amberol no. 3741 initially recorded in 1919.

Does anyone know if and where I can get a copy of this New Blue Amberol? Thanks! Mark Roberts
