Old Anas acuta

Were the old Anas Acuta kayaks always a single translucent colour?

I know of one that’s 2 colours and was wondering if this isn’t a genuine factory one and is a copy of homemade from a rented mound It has the Anas Acuta and vcp stickers on the back deck: could you send off for these back in the day ?

The oldest I have known (I first saw it in 1972 or 1973 and it was not new then) was opaque orange deck and white hull no hatches or bulk heads just tailored air bags. I think it was out of the first of the moulds with the slight twist to the tail.
