Page eleven states "Printed in Japan by Sanyo (early copies) or
"PRINTED IN U.S.A." (later copies.)
Rear tray insert "Printed in Japan by Sanyo." with barcode.
Nothing is printed on the reverse.
The target disc is usually found with this inlay, although I found a
Japanese non-target pressing, still sealed in smooth-topped jewel case,
with this back inlay.
Rear tray insert "PRINTED IN U.S.A." with barcode.
I found the target disc in this back inlay, but more often than not,
a US non-target pressing will be found with it. Nothing is printed on the reverse.
Notes: This disc is scarce, but not as scarce as most Nonesuch target discs.

embossed on one tab and on the back portion, inside bottom center.

accomodate the target design. This actually pre-dates the target CD.
