Tokai tuner

I own LS-60s and 80s before 1985. Recently I found there are several types of tuners. On the back of tuners I read ;

80 LS-60 : Tokai
80 LS-60 : [no letters]
81 LS-80 : Deluxe
82 LS-60 : Deluxe
83 LS-60 : Deluxe
85 LS-80 : [no letters]

I am just wondering which are originals because some of my guitars may have got tuners replaced later on.

Would appreciate any other examples.

BTW, both of my '80 LS-60s have black inked S/Ns, 010....

Three LS 60s from 1984 and 1985 that i'm testing have all written "Deluxe" on their original tuners. The LS 120 had been changed to Schaller tuners by the first owner.
