MADE IN WEST | | GERMANY BY POLYGRAM.
Matrix number: 7559 60269-2 2893 533 01 # (all disc variations have the same matrix number)
There are two (minor) color variations of this disc. One has a matte reddish orange
background of the type usually found on target discs (a), while the other has a bright
almost iridescent orange color (b). The latter can also be found with or without the
inscriptions MADE IN W. GERMANY BY PDO HANOVER (c) or MADE IN W. GERMANY BY PDO (d) etched around the center hole.
Known suffixes: (b) none, BN; (c) BT; (d) BY
That makes four total disc variations that I am aware of.
