Default AES10B Why is it so?

So i'm looking at a few different AES10B's and i noticed that some have identifying marks,cal and importer stamped neatly and others look like they were hand engraved by a me with one eye closed! The rifles all look pretty much the same as far as condition so why the different markings and does it matter if i'm purchasing?
Were they made in different locations or is one just earlier?
Thanks for the help

My example has the shitty looking drunk monkey engraving but after I refinished it it’s barely noticeable now. It is very lightly engraved so the paint/ceracote will cover most of it nicely.

Doesn’t matter. Some people are more proficient at their job, but st the end of the day it’s a tool and they aren’t trying to make the small details pretty.
