It is the color. #8 is the king.
Thank you for your responses, Gentlemen.
Thanks, really liking the 9901s quite a bit so far. They have that distinctive 'Alden' look/shape wheres the BB version does not. I used to think I liked the BB version better but having now owned both, I prefer the Alden version.

Thanks for the info. The buyer sounds like he must have got educated and decided not to return them after realizing they were in fact Alden.
