The fact that the box or 1200 itself is from the Philippines isn’t relevant. I have the same box, for instance, and my machine was a US unit. Look for a thin barcode sticker on the box. It should say “A1200 US” or similar (A1200 UK, A1200 DE, etc.). That’ll tell you where the machine was originally sold and, therefore, the language of the manuals it shipped with. The green sticker in your second image suggests that your box was originally for a European market, but I don’t know which one.

You can see an example of the kind of sticker I’m referring to in this image. It’s the one in the upper left next to the silkscreening. You’ve probably seen one before, possibly without realizing it. Commodore started slapping those stickers on virtually everything starting in 1991 or so. It looks like there might be one in your third image, all the way to the side, but it’s too small for me to read.

EDIT: Wait, there it is in the second image, below the second 0 in 1200.

It looks like the box is Greek. At least, I’m assuming that’s what GR means.
Your 1200 itself is Italian (IT), or at least the case is. (There is the possibility that the unit itself has been reassembled from parts of various origins over the years, but if it also has an Italian keyboard layout then that’s less likely).

Are you trying to reassemble an A1200 package as it was when it rolled out of the factory? If so, you’ll need to keep looking if you want 100% matching pieces. I’m not sure if Commodore produced Greek-language documentation, but if they did that’s probably what came in that box.

Perhaps one of our Greek users could chime in?

Germany is GER or DE and I suspect Greece to be GRE or GR. That's from my English perspective of course though. What type was originally sold in Croatia?

I don't know, but I think you should collect the manuals in the language that your are most happy with reading.
