Tungsten Steel Blades (Original P74*)
Tungsten Plus Blades (I believe this was the same blade with hot, new marketing)
Super Platinum Chrome Blades (I believe this was a different blade with Tungsten in the "alloy" - see line six of the paragraph on the back of the Hang Card, not the same as the P74* but still pretty good. I had heard that P74* marked blades were to be found in some of these packages during the changeover, as on-hand inventory was reduced. I had also read somewhere that those with the P74* blades were the black plastic dispensers, as opposed to the white dispenser in the above pic).
I have no proper annotations for these comments, just fuzzy memories.
Also, your seller pretty clearly states in his description that these were post-P74* blades.
Hey, Tom, welcome to DFS.
