Soviet Lens Club - MIR lens

I am aware of at least three variations of the MIR 37mm lens (MIR 1, MIR B and MIR Sh). Does anybody know the difference between these lenses? I own the MIR B and the MIR Sh and the Sh appears to be somewhat sharper than the B?

Google Translate

The link to Zenit shows all variants, and is easier to decipher.

Not really, but many thanks for trying.

Incidentally, the 'MIR sh' is really a translation for MIR W (the W is a russian character - does not precede ....X,Y,Z).

I guess this is for my interest only because I love the colors and sharpness of this lens.

My Sh was not nearly as sharp as my B. It's the same formula, probably just the old Soviet production variable.
