Are the late 2011 and Mid 2012 display assembly compatible?

I see the product codes for the MacBook Pro 13" unibody Mid 2012 and Late 2011 display assemblies are different, but I have a broken mid 2012 display and a good late 2011 one I could use to replace it if they are compatible.

The iFixit product overview shows late 2011 display assembly product code is IF163-028-3, Apple part #661-5868. The mid 2012 display assembly product code is IF163-042-1, but no Apple part # is listed.

Does anyone know the Apple Part # for the mid 2012 display assembly?

No - sorry some of the '10's fit the '11, but the '11 and '12 do not swap. In the parts catalogue there's a compatibility check option that shows those two years only fit their specific model.
