    The collection is very impressive I agree! In as were to your question , there were 3 models for the Romeo 1 on general release. These were -

    X Metal / Black Iridium
    Titanium / Gold Iridium
    Plasma / Fire Iridium

    The 4 digit early x metal black iridium were known as the Jordan's but I think you already know this. There was also a titanium version with a persimmon lens given to athletes, but were not available on general sale, nor were boxed.
    Cheers!

    Of the general release and excluding the 4 digit Jordan version as this is a collectable piece in its own right, the x metal black iridium I would say is the most common piece out there, and at the time was the most popular. I believe the Plasma Fire and the Titanium Gold are equally as difficult to find. There were 2 generations of each, the second denoted by an 'A' suffix on the serial. I will take photos for you if you wish.

    Do you mean an original catalogue from when they were first released? I don't have one of those but it would be nice . You're welcome and I hope the pictures help you . The last 2 pictures are the Jordan version (4 digit serial).
    Cheers

    I've never noticed this before but looking at the photograph, it seems my Jordan R1 has a double serial. You live and learn!

    It looks like a fifth digit has faded from the second serial. 5991(8).
