No major variations that I know of.


front cover of the twelve-page booklet
Page 11 reads "Manufactured by JVC, Japan. Printed in Japan."


Rear tray insert, "Printed in Japan" with barcode.
Only tray inlay known to contain this target disc.
It is interesting to note that the inlay for the silver stock version usually, but not
always has the catalog number "24026-2" printed on the inside.
The inlay for the silver paint version, while outwardly identical, does not have
the catalog number printed inside.

Notes: This disc is fairly common in the U.S.
In most of the rest of the world, Geffen was distributed by CBS,
which (with one glaring exception) did not issue target-label discs.
