There exist minor color variations in the reddish-orange paint, ranging from
the thick matte paint that is seen on most West German target discs, to a thinner
glossy candy apple orange, almost iridescent paint.
I have found most copies with the matte finish, while a variation with
MADE IN W. GERMANY BY PDO etched around the center hole has the iridescent finish.

This is one of the very few target discs that have spines that read in the
opposite direction (outward) to that of the vast majority.
"9 60318-2" is printed on the reverse.
Notes: This disc is uncommon, but can be found with persistence.
