Is there any difference between 5151001 and 5151002 or 5153001 and 5153002?

And... were 5153s with anti-reflective cathode ray tubes produced?
My 5153 seem to have anti-reflective one...

All the 5153's I've seen had a very reflective, shiny
screen. I didn't realize they made these with an
anti reflective coating.

My 5153002 is very non-reflective.
I don't know when it was manufactured, but it have repair tag on back wich says, that it was repaired in '87, propably by IBM staff, they weren't perfect... I found loose screw iside the monitor, it's luck, that it didn't made short.

I remember someone telling me donkey years ago that the suffix was related to the mains voltage/frequency rating.
I only ever recall seeing xxxx003 units in Australia. But now I've just discovered that I have a xxxx002 unit.

I only have two units that have a suffix:
My 5151002 is 220-240V @ 50Hz
My 5152003 is 240V @ 50/60Hz

xxxx001 units are I presume 120V @ 60hz

I can see a 5151002 being quoted on a German web site. Germany runs their mains at 220V, and so that makes sense.

Can anyone verify all of this?

Here's back of my 5153:


I don't want to take off repair tag, but it's tolerance is propably 200-250V.
It's funny, as XT's PSU can handle 200-240V...
