Iterations of the 1982 US VHS "Video Library Rental"?

Recently I decided to watch my old Star Wars VHS and noticed what appeared to be letters at the top left corner bordering the screen and movie. During regular playback only the lower parts of the letters are visible so I was not able to distinguish what they made out until I decided to rewind the VHS and found that they spell out “FOXVID 5”. The letters on the screen cap’s of the 1982 US VHS’s in this original post: http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/OBITUARY-Star-Wars-Fullscreen-Pan-and-Scan-versions-RIP/id/13517/page/1 seem to spell out “FOXVID 1” so I was wondering if there are other differences between these versions. I haven’t been able to find any information regarding these findings anywhere online. Any insight is appreciated.
