MADE IN | | JAPAN, no manufacturer on disc, but it
has the telltale markings of a JVC pressing.
No variations that I know of.
Known matrix numbers: 9 25119 2 2E21, 9 25119 2 4E12, 9 25119 2 M5E12,
9 25119 2 M5E13, 9 25119 2 M5E14, 9 25119 2 M5E15, 9-25119-2-S6E11, 9-25119-2-S6E12,
9-25119-2-S6E13, 9-25119-2-S6E21, 9-25119-2-S6E22, 9-25119-2-S6E23, 9-25119-2-S6E24,
9-25119-2-U7C21 and there are probably others.


Front cover of the six-page foldout booklet.
Page three states "Manufactured by JVC Japan. Printed in Japan."


Rear tray insert "Printed in Japan." with barcode.
This inlay is scarcer than the below US-printed insert.
It is interesting to note that this insert has the catalog number,
"9 25119-2" printed on the reverse, unusual for a Japanese inlay.


Rear tray insert, "Printed in U.S.A." with barcode.
This inlay is more common than the above Japanese-printed insert.
Be careful, though, as it is far more likely to find US non-target discs
in this inlay.

Notes: This disc is not terribly rare in the U.S., but is in high demand.
In most of the rest of the world, this title was issued on the Polydor label.

A U.S. made target disc is rumoured to exist. The only copy that I know of is on such bad
condition that I cannot be sure if it is real or not. Stay tuned!

Jewel case info: (J inserts) smooth frosted-top two-dimple case with "T4" embossed
on the back and on one tab. Eight-prong disc tray embossed "Patents pending" and "T1"
