Part of the matrix number on side one, specifically the duplication history, A3 is rather tough to make out. It does resemble that of an A5. Using a Illuminated Jeweler's Loupe with LED light at 15x25mm made it possible to more accurately identify. With that in mind and that the orange label release contains an A3, the matrix number with the A5 is questionable.
