In the 1940s, these flexible records were made to be inexpensive, so thatordinary Americans could afford to relive FDR's famous speeches. Made of coated cardboard, the recordsweren't intended to be long-lasting collectible items. So,it's rather hard to find acomplete set in good condition like this one.

"Report of Nazi Attack" October 27, 1941
"State of the Union" January 6, 1942
