what's interesting is that the graphic roms have the official sega part numbers, but the program roms simply have a date.

could be that they were trying out new code modifications for the US release, or Bally had asked for their own, out of line with Sega's usual numbering scheme. could easily be a US market proto (so after the game was finished and sold in Japan, but before refinements for export)
