Prestige Classic fans, please help me identify these two Prestige Classic 600s

I recently purchased two Prestige Classic 600s, and I’m fairly confident the one in the Classic tourna grip is the tennis warehouse re-issue and the leather grip one is possibly an original from the 90s. Note: I forgot to include a picture of the leather grip one having a specification typo, which states that it’s an 18x19 string pattern.

Any information would be greatly appreciated. I’ve read several threads on here before but many of the image links have expired.

The racquet with the gold "600" and the big giant white barcode label is from end of 1993. The other one could be a reissue or from 1998-2000.

Thanks! I’m gonna try to find one more of the originals. Any good references on when each came out? I’ve seen a blog about the history of prestige rackets but now sure how accurate it is. Also when or how long did TW offer the reissued version?

TW had 2 batches of reissues. First was in 2003 and the second was in 2006. There is nothing wrong with the reissues as they were manufactured in the same HEAD factory in Kennelbach, Austria.
