Series discontinued
In 1951 RCA combined the 48 and 50 prefix series with the existing 47 popular series. When the 47 prefix series reached 9999, RCA briefly resurrected the 48 prefix series using it for mostly mono Country Western singles. Unlike the United States, Canada continued the 48 series much longer.
