I prefer the original version – the new one is slightly shorter (while I doubt it's faster), but the display looks a bit weird because of the VIEW / CLD sequence.
Here's another option that does not require a second flag test:

>LBL 01
 SF 25
 FC?C 25
 ST+ Y
 GTO 01
 X<> L

The CLX disables stack lift so that the RCL overwrites X if the register is available, otherwise it leaves a zero.

Otherwise I really like your code. It's short, fast and effective.
