Tell me about Super 70s in Roadstar IIs...

Hey all, I have a question I haven't been able to find the answer to. I have a bridge pickup from an '85 Roadstar II (RS110 model). Just so happens that model isn't in the 1985 Ibanez catalog...but according to this chart, it should be a Super 70.

Now, here's my question. Is it REALLY? It looks vastly different from the older Super 70 models. And, while those old ones have become desirable, nobody says much about Roadstar pickups. It's listed in the '85 catalog, but there's nothing said about it.

So if it is a Super 70, is it the same as the older ones? If not, how is it different?

Here's a picture of it (bottom) next to what I believe is an identical pickup (top) from some other, unknown guitar. That's actually the real reason I'm looking into this---I wanted to know what that pickup was, and remembered that it looks just like the one from my Roadstar.

They're not Roadstar pick ups. More likely to be from the law suit LP series.
