Can someone give me an idea of exactly what type of needles/stylus these are and possibly the manufacturer. They are at least 50 years old. Only one is opened, but I assume the others are similar.

Since one of the packages states "for masters only", maybe these are cutting styli used to cut a master disk for pressing records.

The MI-xxxx designation means that they are from RCA (not RCA Victor).
