The black thumbstick cases are regulary found in standard Nintendo N64 controllers. And the dark grey cases are from the last batch of controllers and also feature a shorter thumbstick cable.

The internals are quite interesting.

Here is a picture of the dark grey case with shorter thumbstick cable. There is also a legend claiming those thumbsticks wouldn't wear out as quickly.

Also there were at least two revisions of the controller pcb.

And several color variations of the rubber pads like the R button was made in both an orange and grey variant, and the Z button in light and dark blue and probably some other variations too.
