Default New Riedell Ravens for me and wife (questions)

I just picked up our New Riedell Raven 120 skates from my favorite brick and mortar skate shop. I ordered matching skates for both me and my wife, but when we got them home, they looked different. (We both ordered Men's D width in black. Same skate, just different size)

Mine: labeled inside boot HAND MADE IN USA 10 D 120
Wife: labeled inside boot MADE IN THAILAND size 7 model 120 blk roller D

Mine: has the silver oval metal Riedell plaque on the heels
Wife: has the copper oval metal Riedell plaque on the heels

Mine: top of tongue is embossed/stamped with oval riedell logo, no color
Wife: top of tongue has plastic clear oval with silver, red and blue logo

Did one of us get the wrong boots, old stock, inferior quality, downgrade?
Wife doesn't like the idea that she has the Thailand made boots and mine are USA made, yet, she likes the prettier tongue logo on hers.
Let me know before we use them if one or both need to be exchanged.
Thanks

Are the plates identical. I know on some models of riedell they come with nylon plates till they hit a certain size then it becomes metal I assume to accommodate the additional weight of someone that size.

Both pair of skates came with nylon plates.
The skate shop had to order both of our skates. Mine arrived on the first shipment and my wife's arrived later on the second shipment. Sounds like they came from different facilities. My first pair of skates from them were a 10 1/2 and were a little big. I noticed that they were made in Thailand. I asked the shop owner and he said that only Riedell's high end skates are made in USA.
I returned the skates for a smaller size 10 and some how I received a USA made pair. I guess it's a luck of the dice depending on what manufacturing plant they order them from. The store owner said that he found a few pairs available in size 7 in one area and 3 pairs available in size 10 in another area.

Most likely a stock issue.

My 120 boot looks like the 220 boot. They needed to fill the order and gave me a 220 instead of the 120.
