The Moldenhauer and Morgan manuscripts are definitely not the same (simple example at the beginning: the former fills in the rests in the double bass line, the latter just omits the tacet double bass line (in the first system) entirely. The Morgan Library manuscript seems to be a manuscript copy made for publication in 1922 (and has a copyright on it), whereas the Moldenhauer manuscript, while firmer and cleaner in places (in the 4 pages available online) also seems to have more crossouts like a first-stage holograph would. Also, the Morgan copy is not signed - the appearances of Webern's name are not clearly in his hand- so is not clearly a holograph by definition.
