Booklets accompanying the West Germany / Germany rear insert say "MANUFACTURED BY POLYGRAM IN HANOVER, WEST GERMANY

Rear tray insert, "Printed in West Germany" with barcode.
This also says, near the bottom, "Manufactured in Germany."
"240 632-2" is printed on the reverse. The POLYGRAM disc variations are found with this insert.


Rear tray insert, "Printed in U.S.A." with barcode.
Nothing is printed on the reverse. The PDO disc variation is found with this insert.
Note the wings are very different compared with the West Germany version.
Usually, Japanese or US (non-target) pressings are found with this insert, but sometimes you may get lucky!
If you get REALLY lucky, you may find a rare US target disc within. See separate entries. But don't hold your breath!

Notes: This disc (POLYGRAM variations) is fairly common.
