Z-1, PZ-1 SE Silver Questions

I've seen pictures of the 75th edition SE edition and there is a large 75 by the manual/AF switch on the front of the camera.
I've also seen pictures of a silver Z-1 without the 75. Is the "75" just a sticker or is it engraved into the frame of the SE cameras? Did they make silver (p)Z-1's outside of the 75 SE series or did the ones without the "75" just lose a sticker?

Just a sticker afaik. There was also the silver Z-5 but quite rare. Practically, the Z-1p is a much better body.

I have one of the silver PZ-1 cameras (that I am about to sell) and the "75 years Pentax" marking is definitely not engraved. It looks like a small plastic plate (slightly thicker than a sticker) stuck on to the body.
