Based on what is known from the test run of this series a year or so ago, I believe the refit model was made by a different company that who they have now. Hence, the quality of the later models of this new company should be better, including the A, yes.
Yes, I would say that's probably the case. The first 5 models were a part of the initial test run, made by one company. After the run was suspended, they switched to a different company. Whether or not they've remade these first 5 issues, is not known, but I'd say they probably did, but based on the original molds. But anyway, anything beyond Issue #5 should be all new molds. So by the time we get to the 1701-A, it should be a different mold. It's a wonder all issues except Issue #2 are as good as they are.
