I have several copies of Pitt Minions which are from the 1950s and 1960s, and they are PCE. However, none have the words of Christ in red, as the recently printed issuances have.

Pitt Minions use the bold figure reference system, which means that there are no paragraph marks or annotation marks in the text, but that everything is listed in the centre-column after the verse number.

As far as typeface and the system of references, I think the Cameo is better than the Pitt Minion. The Pitt Minion is a cleaner format, more compact style, which means that the actual Bible is slimmer.
