How do I distinguish between Ibanez 7 string pickups by appearance?

I'm looking at purchasing an Ibanez rg 7 string, but I'm having trouble telling the difference between the pickups, so that I can make sure I'm getting what I'm paying for.

Here's what I know so far from what I have. These are the bridge position pickups. Please help with with pics or info on those I do not.

RG's:
7321- H: Ibanez AH-2 w/ Alnico-5 Magnet

7421- H: Ibanez V8-72 All flat graphite color with hex/allen for adjustment on one side of each pickup.

7621- H: "DiMarzio New 7" - IH7B2BKM

I've always indentified Dimarzio by looking at the screw mounts. Dimarzios have triangular shaped mounts. The Ibanez made pickups have more squarish shaped mounts. Hope this helps.

Do the dimarzio pickups actually say dimarzio anywhere on them?

DiMarzio pickups don't have any initials or logos. But if it's a Dimarzio/Ibanez you will see DIMARZIO/IBZ written on the pickup.
Check for pictures at www.dimarzio.com. It may be helpful.
Good luck with your 7-string "quest"!
