saw blade

I have an old Homelite chainsaw that I just recently got working again. I also several chains for it but each one is marked differently. One has 'J1' on the side, one has 'A1', and one has '72' on the side of the chain. What do those numbers mean? Is one better than the other and what is the best chain for my saw? It's a SuperXL Automatic, 20". Thank you.

Saw Chain

This web site should be helpful:

OregonŽ 3/8"-Pitch Chain for Chain Saws

Each chain mfg. uses their own numbering system for saw chain. I prefer Oregon chain.
