Front cover of the eight-page booklet
Page seven states "Manufactured by
PolyGram in Hanover, West Germany
Printed in West Germany"


Rear tray insert, "Printed in West Germany" with barcode.
Only tray inlay known to contain this target disc.
"23696-2" is printed on the reverse.
There is also a West German (non-target) pressing that uses this same inlay.


This same disc (the Polygram variation) was issued in Japan with a sticker obi
and given the new catalog number 38XP-11. This is what it looks like with obi attached.
The Japanese catalog number only appears on the obi.
Later, this title was pressed in Japan in the 32XD series. See separate entry.

Notes: This disc is not as easy to find as the one pressed in Japan
but it can be found with a bit of searching.
As of this writing, the "02" variation appears to be quite scarce.

Jewel case info: (POLYGRAM) smooth frosted two-dimple case with nothing embossed on the back.
"14" is embossed on one tab, as well as on the back portion, inside bottom center.
