There is another disc variation (not pictured) with MADE IN WEST | | GERMANY on the front
and MADE IN W. GERMANY BY PDO is etched around the center hole.
I don't have any other information about this variation.
These are the only three known disc variations for this target CD.


Here is a weird error, with the silver paint plate missing. Except for the matrix
number matching the correct disc, and the fact that it plays the correct disc,
you'd never know by looking at it, which Atlantic target disc it is.
