RCA Records Pressing Plant, Indianapolis

RCA Records Pressing Plant, Indianapolis

Profile:
Opened on August 5, 1939, this was the largest of RCA Victor's record U.S. manufacturing plants, pressing vinyl records and capacitance electronic disc (CED) products. Production of CED VideoDiscs ceased June 27, 1986, vinyl production was phased out by the end of 1987, and the plant closed in January 1988.

Identification:
Serifed capital "I" stamp in runouts.
2.75" (70mm) "deep groove" pressing ring through 1968; 1" (25mm) ring 1968–1987.
The letter "R" appearing on A&M Records releases, or the plant code "70" printed on PolyGram releases during the 1970s & 1980s, identifies RCA Indianapolis as the pressing plant.

Note: After this plant's closure, some titles pressed in Indianapolis had stampers shipped elsewhere for repressing; these can be identified by the struck-through "I" stamp which can look like a "+" sign. Use the "Mastered At" LCCN role in these cases.

General RCA Mastering Information:
The first alpha in runouts (for all plants) indicates year of mastering (between 1960 and 1977): L=60, M=61, N=62, P=63, R=64, S=65, T=66, U=67, W=68, X=69, Z=70, A=71, B=72, C=73, D=74, E=75, F=76, G=77.
The 2nd alpha indicates size/speed; K=7" 45, L=7" 33⅓, P=10" 33⅓ & R=12" 33⅓.
"4" indicates lacquer cut from tape supplied & "5" indicates lacquer supplied to RCA. Either of these digits in front of the 2nd alpha = January to June and behind the alpha = July to December of the year indicator.
The 4th alpha indicates whether a record is mono ("M"), stereo ("S"), or even quadraphonic ("T").
(e.g. R4KM prefix would be a 1964 7" 45, cut between Jan & Jun from tape supplied)

To identify 78RPM records that were pressed at the Indianapolis facility between Fall 1937 and early 1954, note the following label details:

Victor and Bluebird labels citing "RCA Manufacturing Co., Inc" at bottom: Two concentric label arcs of unequal length = Indianapolis pressing

Victor, RCA Victor and Bluebird labels citing "RCA Victor Division of Radio Corporation of America" at bottom: Two concentric circles nearly touching the small RCA circle = Indianapolis pressing
