Five variations that I know of.
The one on the left was made by CBS, and has a black target over
silver stock. Note the DIDZ number under the catalog number.
The other two were made by JVC, and don't have the DIDZ number.
The example on the right is also silver stock with black target and text.
The center version has a black target over a gray background.
The CBS version can be found in three minor variations:
The plastic center can be found stamped with "CSR COMPACT DISC" repeating three times,
stamped with "MANUFACTURED BY CBS/SONY RECORDS, INC.", or completely blank.
