As I recall, Pickering made some rather fine cartridges in their day. I had one on an old Rek-o-Kut table some time ago. I beleive that one stylus (the diamond) was designed for 33 and 1/3 RPM usage, while the other was for 78 rpm records. You can inspect the stylus tips to see if they are appreciably worn with a good magnifying glass or binocular "macroscope?" (we used to use these in biology class). The tips should be rounded, and not to badly chiseled in appearance.
