In your original message you said mentioned version 1.06. The fonts from
URW (both GhostScript and GhostPCL) are version 1.05. While gsfonts does
include version 1.06. Hence it is very likely the version from gsfonts.
Another hint would be if the fonts copyright mentiones something like

Cyrillic glyphs added by Valek Filippov (C) 2001-2004

Otherwise one would have to compare things like glyph coverage. The
version from GhostPCL covers Latin, Greek and Cyrillic, while the
version from gsfonts covers only Latin and Cyrillic. And the Cyrillic
glyphs should be different between the two versions.
