Was the 383 in a 1961 Windsor a B block or an RB block?

RB, last year. The Canadian 383 is different from the American 383, still RB, but different bore/stroke

Nope, 1961 is (fortunately) a B not RB. 383 RB Chrysler only and only 59/60.

So was 1959 Adventurer engines B or Rb versions or is there a possibility it could be either or them?

I guess this is a fact then , without exceptions:

"Chrysler also wanted a 383 cubic inch engine, to avoid having a smaller engine than the lesser Dodge. Trenton Engine, at the time, had a line for the B engine and one for the RB; the B line was busy pushing out 383s and 361s, while the RB line was underused, producing just the 413. Chrysler engineers created a 383 engine out of the RB 413 block, with a narrower bore — so there was a large-bore, short-stroke Dodge 383 and a small-bore, long-stroke Chrysler “Golden Lion” 383.

The 383 RB was only available in 1959 and 1960 on the US-built Chrysler Windsor and Saratoga (thanks, Ian Smale and Bill Watson). In 1961, the plant figured out how to quickly switch from one block to the other, and they dropped the RB 383. "- Allpar as source.

The B engines were stamped to the left of the distributor and the RB to the right in general. I guess also RB 383 is stamped to the right of the distributor? This is when you stand in front of the car.
