I have compiled a list of the various dot pitches of popular IBM and Tandy color monitors:

IBM 4863 PCjr. Color Monitor - 0.43
IBM 5153 Color Display 0.38
IBM 5154 Enhanced Color Display - 0.31
IBM 5175 Professional Graphics Display 0.31

Tandy CM-4/CM-5 Color Monitor - 0.64
Tandy CM-11 Color Monitor - 0.42

These are not that bad when compared to the first VGA displays:
IBM 8211 - 0.39
IBM 8512 - 0.41
IBM 8513 - 0.28 (at 12")

How about the early Sony monitors, such as CPD1302? 0.25" dot-pitch, ISTR.
