SRC logo stamped in trail off wax which stands for Specialty Records Corporation located in Olyphant, PA. Founded in 1946 and renamed WEA Manufacturing Inc. in 1979. Records that have the "SRC" logo in the runout 'deadwax' were Processed & Pressed By Specialty Records Corporation, but records that have the "SRC" logo along with an "SPAR" etching "and" a "B-#####"-type matrix number in the runout 'deadwax' indicates that the Plating (Processing / Metalwork) was done at Specialty Records Corporation but the record itself was actually Pressed at Allied Record Company. In such cases with the "SPAR" and "B-#####" etchings, add Specialty Records Corporation as 'Mastered At' and also add Allied Record Company as 'Pressed By'
