Special Notes: This disc is part of the first run. John Bird hand wrote this on this early sample. Precision never applied for a patent. The prototype discs came with a small nipple on the bottom and that was not desirable for what PF was looking to accomplish, so this style was replaced with the "First Runs", which had a smooth bottom and no nipple. The problem with the first run was silicone would not adhere to the bottom so the Second, and final run features an etched bottom with no nipple. You can tell the Second run by the dull finish on the bottom. Disc is part of the John Bird collection.
