HP 49G Screen Cover - Nick Nicholas - 02-19-2003

I understand HP changed the screen cover to a more scratch resistant version on later models of the HP 49G. Is there any physical characteristics that would distinguish the updated version?

Not from any quick look, but the older lens had a very noticable rainbow effect and would be an ID93### or older. The newer lens cover is definitely available on the ID94###.
Different Faceplate texture and a slight dimple above the Hp logo also indicate a newer Hp49G also (but if you do not have both, you probably do not or cannot determine this).

Thanks for the information on the screen cover. I have a HP 49G with serial number CN148***** and I don't see the rainbow effect so I assume that the screen cover is the newer type.
