Columbia Recording Studios Identifiable by machine-stamped codes in the runouts: ZTSP (7" 45 RPM mono), ZTEP (7" 45 RPM EP mono), TLP (1949 custom 10" LP's), XTLP (1949 custom 12" LP's), TV (10"), XTV (12" LP mono), XSV (12" LP stereo), ZTV (7" mono), ZSV (7" stereo), QXSV (12" LP quadraphonic), QZSV (7" quadraphonic), P (10" 78 RPM), XP (12" 78 RPM), ZP (7" 78 RPM), PA (10" 78 RPM EP), XPA (12" 78 RPM EP), ZPA (7" 78 RPM EP). Additionally one of Columbia Recording Studios' mastering rooms, in the 1956-57 period, did have a stamped 5-pointed star on some lacquers on both LP and 45. Seen on both Hollywood and Bridgeport pressings.

Like RCA and Capitol, Columbia’s pressing plants and mastering services were used an awful lot by smaller independent local labels. Their three main (others in Terre Haute IN, Pitman NJ) pressing plants were based in Chicago, Nashville and New York, and are identifiable by the stamped in prefix to the number in the deadwax:
ZTSC – Chicago
ZTSB – Nashville
ZTSP – New York, and to a lesser degree Hollywood
The code itself is broken down thus:
Z – indicates a 7″ medium
T – transcription
S – indicates 45rpm
C – Chicago, where they were pressed
The job numbers which follow the ZTSC, ZTSP, ZTSB, codes were allotted out of the offices in the Fisher Building in Detroit, and were often allocated in batches. Columbia Special Products Detroit office was first located in the Fisher Building during the mid ’60’s. Orders taken by the office would then be sent to Columbia’s Chicago studio to have the master lacquer (acetate) cut, which would then be forwarded on to the plant in Terre Haute. Stereo 45 matrix numbers from NY/Hollywood always bore a ‘ZTS’ prefix; Chicago used ‘ZCSV’ prior to 1969, and ‘ZTSV’ thereafter; Nashville’s stereo matrix prefix was ‘ZSSB.’ EP releases bore the following prefix codes: ZTEP = New York/Hollywood; ZTEC = Chicago; ZTEB = Nashville. (‘E’ denoted an EP release.)
