It is hard to see because of the dark background, but the inlay really says,
"Printed in West Germany" at the bottom.
"9 60289-2" is printed on the reverse.
The POLYGRAM/PDO disc variation was issued in Europe with Alsdorf inserts.
I don't have a picture yet.

The variation without black lettering is much harder! See separate listing.
