The name M150 / 481 was temporarily used, but there is no difference to the M150. The M150 / 481 e.g. has the pelican cap logo. In comparison, the model 481 has differences to the model M200, e.g. the cap has no logo and it often comes with friction fit nibs (instead of threaded nibs) installed. See in M200-Basis.
