Firebird/SG Bridge Question

I've been pondering where to post this, so if this is the wrong place, my apologies.

Back in the 70's I bought both a '63 Firebird 3 and a '68 SG Special, and immediately pulled the non-adjustable bridges and replaced them with Bad Asses. Yes, I kept the originals. In a couple of weeks I'm planning on taking them both to be appraised for insurance reasons, and I want to return them both back to stock before I do.

I've been looking at both bridges all day, and I cannot discern any noticeable difference. Quite frankly, I could care less, but I'm sure someone would.

IS there a difference?

My thanks for any insight.

I had both guitars and there is no difference in the FB III bridge/ tailpiece vs the SG version. At least there wasn't on mine.

The plating would be the only difference. The '63 would be nickle and the '68 would be chrome.
