50 mm lens recommendations

I have about 100 bucks to spend on a new lens and I have been looking at 50 mms for a bit. I currently have a 18/70 and a 70/300.

I found these, but I can not seem to be able to find any differences in them. Is it worth the extra money for this one

Minolta Maxxum 50 F1.7 (49) (XX) WITH CAPS 35MM SLR AUTO FOCUS STANDARD ANGLE LENS - KEH.com

over this one?

Minolta Maxxum 50 F1.7 (49) 35MM SLR AUTO FOCUS STANDARD ANGLE LENS - KEH.com

Any recommendations?

Pretty sure they are the same lens, just shot from a different angle.

I have an extra one with original box, lens caps (both ends), and UV filter if you are interested.

6/5 construction on both is a good indication they're the same lenses in different bodies.
