This is the 2008 remaster which looks physically very close to the original 2000 release but has some key differences which are noted below.
The KMG catalog number is the same for both the 2000 & 2008 releases. There is no direct indication that the 2008 is a remaster, except for the sticker on the front of the wrapper.
The 2000 edition has a hairline separation of ink near the center ring. The 2008 remaster has slightly thicker separation.
The 24 page booklets are virtually identical.
The original pressing had a deep black tray insert. The 2008 remaster had the faded black theme insert; it now matched the booklet color.
