Generally, no. Late 1980 & early 1990 MIL/LE returns are regularly for sale at below current "B's"...however, there are exceptions  ;)

Like Blackwatch wrote and there are a few AAL guns that have special finishes (master blue, gold controls) that should command a premium as a result. Here’s one from a recent forum post.

The Action Arms Transitional 75s had a lot more traction before the surplus guns became available.  Also, the new higher-end models and the 75B SA undermined their demand.  I have one, and I traded in a FEG GKK and $100 for it @2003.  That was roughly $300 in "real money" at the time.  (The shop overpriced their 75, but they also overvalued the FEG, so it was a wash.)  A really nice one in polycoat or blued with box, paperwork, etc. would be about the same as a comparable Type B for most people.  The "Plain Jane" Type As don't bring the relative prices they used to demand @20 years ago. 

If you post some pics, I could probably give you a better idea.  As Psyop96 and Blackwatch mentioned, there are some exceptions, such as different finishes, different mix of Type A/Type B features, etc. that could make it more desirable/valuable.
