RT250 vs RT450

I am trying to figure out if there is a way to tell the difference between these two models. I know that the 250 was sold in Europe.
I just bought a used guitar and the seller said it was a 250 but the serial number starts “F2” which I think means made in 1992.
From what I can find in the web, the 450 was made in 92-93 but the 250 only in 93. I have seen guitars with stickers for the model number but this one doesn’t have one. The tone pot is push/pull but it doesn’t seem to be connected to anything. Did the 250 have the coil split like the 450?
They are basically the same guitar but I was just curious. Thanks for any help.
