c451 65° anniversary vs vintage one

Hi there,
I just found out this 65° anniversary reissue looking around the web... I was wondering how this compares to the classic 451 versions.
anyone ever compared these? is it the same mic or just looks like it?

thank you!

My last studio partner bought one on a whim. I've used dozens of vintage 451's and the newer ones, but did not have any for direct comparison when using the 65th anniversary one. I will say that the 65th sounded really good and was a go to for me on hats and the occasional acoustic guitar when a brighter close mic was called for. It has that great presence in the high end like the original CK-1. On acoustic guitar, the newer version of the 451 always picked up the attack of a pick strumming the strings in an annoying and "bad" way that I could never really get rid of. The vintage models never did that (one reason i prefer them) and I found that true with the anniversary model as well, so they did something right with it in my book!
