Hi all,

Sorry for the lack of “action” over the past months. Many things have changed in my life and I needed to focus on making the best of my new circumstances, as well as on my mental health.

Anyway, I have a few items to show off when time allows. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, please stay safe, no matter where in the world you are.

Welcome back. :smiley:


Nice to hear from you! :+1:

Here 8x + R from Commodore. The spindle is interesting - with a screw cap. The content is MCC003 fakes with moderate quality.

Generic R74 Printable made in Ireland
ATIP 97m34s20f (MCC)

apart from the missing print and packaging identical to Verbatim R74 type 0

ATIP 97m27s10f (but Plasmon isn´t the real manufacturer)
LBA 74m41s00f

Stamper S/N: RWD744-00245 (shows Ritek as real manufacturer)

A very weird and bizarre design. :dizzy_face:

4M (or Plasmon) probably supplied stampers with a generic ATIP code. The medium itself was made by some small European or Asian producer.

Wow, so special cdr, I saw one of this kind of design in the past only.
