Voice-O-Graph Labelography (Part 6)

This is my sixth update to my Voice-O-Graph Labelography project. I have one more variants for the list today. I correctly integrated it into the assumed chronology.  It's a variant of the 1948 Blue-on-Blue essentially inverting the color scheme to Teal on unbleached paper. The unbleached paper may or may not be a deliberate variation, much like the other with unbleached paper.

This disc is undated but I presume it's approximately around the similar model. I also hav emore information on the Black-on-Green disc. I found one with a metal core. the problem with this is two fold. First it's undated, second I had assumed that the metal core was an early design. So either this is not the case, or the Black-on-Green goes back further than I had estimated. I have not accounted for this incongruity yet. Perhaps with more confirmed dates this will explain itself. [Contributions are welcome if you know more.]
