What's the difference between these Ultegra Shifters

Does anyone know what the difference betwen these two Ultegra 6510 shifters is:

This one has a silver body between the hood and the lever, and silver thumb lever. I haven't seen them like this:

This one has a black body and black lever. This is how the ones I've had on the bike for a while now look:

Is one a previous version, and is there any difference besides just the color of these two things?

The top one is an older model, not the 6510 model. It has the snap-on topcap, which was notorious for coming loose and rattling over rough roads. Your model is the newer, refined version for the 6500 group. I like the looks of the version you have better.
