Rear tray insert, Made in USA, no UPC.
Note the W2 catalog number on the wings, and the "Manufactured by Columbia
House under licence." on the back inlay. Non-target versions of this disc
also come in this inlay.

counterparts, this particular disc has turned up in sufficient quantities to
satisfy current demand. I am only aware of a few copies of the DIDX variation, however.
