My board is ver 2.0 and I didn't make any changes to it either (I'm definitely not the original owner though).
I believe your PCB and his PCB are rev 1.0, but some of the components may have changed.
Looking at the markings around your LIF socket and the fact we have a proper socket 3 makes me think that they might have had issues with availability of socket 3 ZIF so they simply went back to LIF socket instead. There are many boards with this kind of difference, and yet still the room to install a ZIF socket.
Ok. I didn't know manufacturers did that. I thought that if there was a change in the components, it was because there was a hardware revision. But this was my mistake. Always learning.
