1964 Version: See PA20.
1969 Version: Pictured above left (copyright 1969 on box rim).
1970 Version: Pictured above right (copyright 1970 on box rim).

There are several easy ways to distinguish the 1964 Version from the 1969/1970 Versions:
- The text on the box lids is different.
- The 1964 Version has a plain red box rim, whereas the 1969/1970 Versions have text on the box rim (including the serial number and copyright date).
- The 1964 Version has a plain white box bottom, whereas the 1969/1970 Versions have a plain red box bottom.

There are several easy ways to distinguish the 1969 Version from the 1970 Version:
- The copyright date on the box rim is 1969 or 1970.
- The box construction is different, with the black seam tape on the 1969 version being thicker.
- The text on the box rims is different.
