This variation was issued in the U.S. with the normal WG paper inserts.
In Europe, it was issued with a booklet that does not mention a country or
manufacturer, and the alternate rear tray insert below.
These are the only four disc variations that I am aware of.
Front cover of the eight-page booklet
"Manufactured by PolyGram in Hanover, West Germany
Printed in West Germany 9 60268-2" is printed on page seven.
Rear tray insert, "Printed in West Germany" with barcode.
On the reverse is printed "9 60268-2"
Only known back cover for target pressings in the U.S.

The PDO disc variation can be found with this tray inlay in later copies issued in Europe
Note the European cataog number. Thanks to Uli for this scan.
The common POLYGRAM disc was issued in Japan, with a Japanese insert and obi, as 38XP-45.
