Note: When adding a submission to this profile, please confirm that the etch conforms to the uploaded images.
Please use "Mastered At" until additional drop downs are created for lccn field. (e.g.Metalwork LCCN)
-On some Warner Bros. and Capitol releases "LW" is in the matrix code but this an incorrect entry for this profile. See Capitol Records Pressing Plant, Los Angeles

President Jack Berman (Circa 1959)

From lacquer discs this company made the metal parts that were pressed by Presswell, Monarch Record Mfg. Co., Columbia Records Pressing Plant, Pitman, Specialty Records Corporation (confirmed) and others. Longwear's work is identifiable by Matrix etchings of "LW" or "LWP". The "LW" and "LWP" have been observed only etched & the "L" either a capital "L" or a cursive "L". Another key identifier is that the etch is placed well away from other matrix runouts and is rotated 90 degrees to the right of other etchings.

It is known that circa 1972 Longwear was wholly owned by Mastercraft Record Plating, Inc.
According to the Steve Hoffman forum there was a switch from Longwear (LW, LWP) in the early 70's and hence no disc etchings.
