I believe the earlier ones also had a different cap on the end ,more of a hex looking then the round(like the bottom example you sent ) .also the earlier ones had no reflectors like 64 to like 67 or 68 .just going off of what I have found to be true on my bikes .

The bottom amber pedal has the hex. The hex is your friend, always. It indicates a rebuildable pedal.
There was a time you could walk into a Raleigh dealer and hit him up for new end caps, like these, or pedal stems, or pedal blocks, or bearings, whatever you needed to get your broken or worn pedals back on the road. The hex is 1/4 Whitworth, you threaded it off, and rebuilt your pedal.
Now, it is an Easter egg hunt for the parts, using better used or hard to find NOS stuff. But, you can at least service the old ones, and keep them running.

Be careful when you do it. I like to use a Whitworth socket or box end wrench, to avoid tearing up the end cap with an adjustable wrench.
The size is 1/4 Whitworth. If you own English bikes, a set of Whitworth wrenches and sockets will make your life easier.
