There's a clean copy on Ebay for $300. If seven copies are pre-ordered and pre-paid then I'll buy it and produce the copies.
Shipping would be the usual $5 per order in the USA. It will likely take two months to receive the disc and make the copies.

If you're willing to commit then please reply to this post along with how many copies you're willing to commit to. Payment will be expected once seven commitments are posted below.

Excuse me Donnie, this has probably been asked a thousand times but I usually don't follow your record reproduction activity due to overseas shipping with likely breakage, prohibitive mailing costs and money wasted with duties fares.

Will the preproduced record be 100% playable on an external horn machine with steel needles?

Are you also going to reproduce the label?

Do you have a gross estimate of mailing costs to Italy?

Yes, they are playable on windups with steel needles. Wear varies, the current formula as shown in the video below works quite well.

The materials are accurate enough that the label is usually readable in the copy as the silicone recreates the texture of the print. I do not generally print paper labels (except for Diamond Discs) but it all depends on price.

Shipping to Europe is typically around $25 for one or two discs.

The disc on Ebay was purchased by a member of this forum and has generously agreed to loan it for duplication, so this one will be made!

I didn't ask for permission to name the person, and will leave it to them as to whether or not they'd like to be identified.

PS. It's kindness like this which makes affordable copies possible!

Anyone know how long the "Gas Shell Bombardment" piece is?? and What year is is from again?? 1914-1918 ??!??

Would like to see this this piece as much as possible on a 2-Minute or 4-Minute Edison Cylinder...

Maybe Norman or Duncan can get a good copy of it on cylinder for us... (Hopeful Wishing)

It would sell like Hotcakes!

I'm not 100% sure, but I have read in previous older Phonograph articles that the piece is possibly or was most likely a "Staged" event...and not a direct "Real" recording of the WW1 Battlefield...

Anyone know if this is true or not???!?? This subject came up quite a few years ago...and I don't remember the findings...

This has been discussed numerous times. Rather than point you to a previous discussion, which will then point you to a previous discussion and so on, I'll suggest you search the board, read up, and decide for yourself. It is definitely controversial.

It looks like it from October 1918..

No idea of the length of the piece though.

A good way to determine this is to see if it's on YouTube. It is, multiple times:
