Breaker Question

I have two Cutler-Hammer 20A tandem breakers in my existing panel with slightly different model numbers.

One is a BD2020, and it says "types BRD & A"
The other is a BR2020, and it says "type BRD, A, & DNPL"

What's the difference between the two?

The DNPL means that breaker can be used in a panel which uses type DNPL breakers which I believe are old Westinghouse panels. Type BR are Cutler-Hammer's "residential" grade panels which used to have the Bryant brand I believe.
