I just purchased the following: Hot Rod Deluxe, Type PR246, Serial # B-263474. It seems that the special editions were usually $100 more than the standard models, so retail maybe $799 new.
The front has the emblem "Fender-Deluxe", It has the vintage knobs and the vintage Celestian 30 speaker. We can't tell much by the serial number, maybe you could post a picture. The "Hot Rod Deluxe 112 Extension", is a 1x12 extension speaker cabinet, while the "Hot Rod Deluxe III" is just the latest version of the HRDlx amp, being the third (III) iteration, which has a black control panel instead of chrome on the previous versions (there are exceptions on chrome panel).

I had read that the special edition version added the Celestion speaker that may be a little better, but other than that, I don't know. I would like to know the year built also if anyone can help. differences between the regular and special editions are the speaker and the covering on the amp cabinet, the amp is the same in both.
the V30 has a great reputation, but "better" is in the ear of the beholder.
The version III is just the latest/newest version of the regular amp, and has some minor circuit revisions and a Celestion "G12P80" speaker, instead of the Eminence "Gold Label" speaker, and a black control panel, but essentially the same amp as previous versions.
