TK 76 Versions - what is mine?

I hope to be soon a proud (very proud!) owner of a TK76.
Man, I waited for this camera.

I understand there were three versions shipped of the TK76, named A, B and C.

For the moment I just know the camera will have a flat handle, not the angular one. I guess the angular one was not that comfortable (..but cooler looking).
And the viewfinder is adjustable front/end.

As I found a brochure of a C-type where the handle is fixed and angular, it seems mine will be an A or B. And also the viewfinders housing is straight, different from the C type one that is smaller at the top.

Can anybody say what a A and B-type are different in?
Thanks for your help!

The TK-76A is easily recognized, as it had the "VTR" pushbutton on the handle.

The B version eliminated that VTR start location, as users preferred the lens mounted start.

The C version had the thinner, more angular, handle.

Hope that this helps.
