Thanks for that!
Does anyone please know if there is any difference between a black M6 made
in 1990 and a new one (apart from small differences in the writing and a
time lapse of 8  years)?

The 1990 one has lights that blink when the lenscap is on, I'm not sure if
there's a slightly less certain feel to the meter although the range seems
to be the same - any opinions? 
Did they change any of the internal workings in this time?
