With my copy, made by PDO in the UK, the disc has discoloured over the years to an orange hue. I remember online discussions in the 90's saying that this is a not uncommon issue with PDO discs. Does anyone have a copy that hasn't discoloured?

Will this disc become rarer that it already is because of this?

So far this seems to only affect the label side. I hope it stops there!
