They both have the same logo's (Centenary Logo), including dustwrappers and slipcases.

Thanks Remy, I myself think the two copies that you have could be the more common examples.

I thought it may be useful to add some photos of both types. The second picture shows the colour difference.

I just measured both my sets. One 11.1cm and the other 11cm (the difference probably being due to the second one being tightly shrinkwrapped - If I measure the second set at the middle rather than the top of the slipcase, it measures 10.5cm - again due to the way the slipcase curves inward with the shrinkwrapping).

Interesting that there appears to be another variant. In any case my two seem to match your 11.2cm set.
