Does anyone know the correct nomenclature for an old Colt AR?

I'm not sure if it's a green label, blue label, "hbar green label" or what. It's an SP with a 6 digit sn that looks to be made in 1984, as near as I can tell. It's also marked "AR-15 A2 HBAR Sporter". Of course it has the weird oversize front receiver pin that was unique to Colt back then. It also has the usual SP clean lower without the cage around the mag release, and a standard colt A2 upper.

So if anyone knows the correct collector's name for this thing, I'd appreciate it. I'd like to be able to accurately describe it without sounding like numbnut Senator de Leon.
