I’m sure you are right here, since IFPI established the cd codes in 1994 somewhere.

\"In 1994, in an effort to combat piracy, the IFPI and the compact disc manufacturing industry introduced Source Identification (SID) codes, which are markings on CD parts that identify the manufacturers, equipment, and master discs that were used to create each disc.\"*

I’m not sure about the ’93 and ’95 dates, but it looks like a 2 year timeframe for a fixed price, indeed. And we do have to correct the date on the non-promo copy. But will it be 1994 or 1995? Hmm… But thanks for the research again, Bram!
