The common BY POLYGRAM disc variation can be found with this back inlay.
"32100-2" over "Europe: 250 699" is printed on trhe reverse.
There are two minor color variations available for this inlay. On one, the dot
screen is so tight that the background appears to be solid brown. On the other,
the dot screen is wider, and it is obviously composed of tiny dots.
