Default How do you know if your Honda Prelude is type SH?

I just recently got a Honda Prelude and I'm not sure if it is a base model or type SH. What are the 'obvious' physical reasons? I know that both have the DOHC Vtech stickers as well as the Type SH sticker on the rear but it looks like the previous owner took those stickers off on this vehicle. I also know that the Type SH has a stock wing but this Prelude has been modified.
