It looks odd, as AK called the black version 4560 and the brown version 4550.
Maybe a labeling mistake by the factory. Most probably this is a 4550.
AK used sometimes (by shortage?) other labels and made handwritten corrections with pencil. That had been forgotten for the item here.
For brown (4550) the price was $104, while the 4560 (black) cost $100. Obviously something went wrong.

How could a "brown" model 4550 bear an ident tag of a "black" 4560?
I think the production line went short of 4550 labels and applied alternatively 4560 labels. But then somebody forgot to make the necessary correction.
I found another one, where the number was corrected, again for a 4550 model:
4550 labels went out of supply.
