Can't say I've ever seen a stock PET with blue phosphor, or graphics like that for that matter...

It was common practice in those days to put a coloured gel in front of the white on black screen, which might be the case here.

FWIW, my 2001 PETs have these white (original) and green (later) Amperex CRT types:

M24-302W (White, US equivalent P4)
M24-302GH (Green, US equivalent P31)

Don't know if there's a correlation, but it seems that the machines with the blue bezel and nameplate generally used the white phosphor tubes, while the later models with the black bezel used green screens.
