conflicting model numbers???

Hi, I just finished disassembling this used RG I bought and I found that the neck pocket is stamped RG-450R and also in red ink the letters D and Y.
The neck heel is stamped RG-470R and theres also the letter C in red ink.
Serial number on the back of the headstock is F303241, made in japan.
So which is it? Help please, anybody?

Eh, that's not that uncommon. I've seen factory RG570's with necks stamped RG550. Typically, I'd go with the body type over the neck stamp.
