Vintage Angenieux lenses with/without HEC coating matching?

Dear community,
dear Angenieux experts!

I got a set of four vintage Angenieux lenses which all match very well.
I learned that there are newer, better coated HEC versions of two of the four lenses.
I plan to convert my set to PL, but now I think of investing in the better HEC versions before I do the conversion. But I am afraid that the two HEC lenses will not match as well with the non-coated lenses, from which there are no HEC versions. These are the lenses:

Angenieux Type R7 5.9mm T2
Angenieux Type 6x9.5 T1.9 (T1.8 HEC version available)
Angenieux Type 10x12 T2.5 (T2.3 and T2.1 HEC versions available)
Angenieux Type 20x12 T4.2

What do you think?
Also if you have any information/sources on the different versions, I would be really thankful if you share them – it’s so hard to find anything.
The best thing would be a list with serial numbers and years/versions.

Thanks in advance,
Jannik
