No disc variations that I know of, though given the number of Elektra target variations
that have surfaced, I wouldn't be surprised if variations turn up!

Front cover of the twelve-page booklet.
Page eleven states "Printed in West Germany
Manufactured by PolyGram in Hanover, West Germany."


Rear tray insert "Printed in West Germany" with barcode.
"9 60296-2" is printed on the reverse.
Only known tray inlay for this target CD.
The weird moire pattern is a scanner artifact and not on the actual inlay. Sorry about that!


This exact same disc was issued in Japan with a sticker obi. The catalog number 38XP-76
appears only on the obi strip.

Notes: This disc is quite common.

Jewel case info: heavy ridged-top six-tab two-dimple case with "43" embossed on one tab and
"21" embossed on the back portion, inside bottom center. Eight-prong disc tray embossed "Patents pending 14"
