Yes, there were three different styles of lettering in PRR years, with variations within.  As-built:  Circle Keystone, then 1954+ Shadow Keystone; 1960+ Plain Keystone.  Most manufacturers have lettering drawings for all three.

I did a review of the Rail Shop PRR H30 model in the PRRT&HS publication TKM No.78, Autumn 2011, which included some construction photos.  I have now built 2, they are nice kits.  Photo of finished cars on the layout are attached.
