This is what I found in a archived thread:

For non Retina Mac`a
ioreg -lw0 | grep IODisplayEDID | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

For Retina Mac`s
ioreg -lw0 | grep \"EDID\" | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

Neither work for me as of now.

It's definitely possible. I don't know why though. This question would be better suited for a developer.

My guess is that it has something to do with Mavericks and the way it was written. It probably needs a new command.

From what I can tell, these commands are doing what you ask. But the problem is that the data the commands are being asked to process has changed. The question is if the relevant data is still there and where it has been moved to. I'll do some poking around but no promises. This is really suited for a much bigger Apple geek than me.

It seems mavericks doesn't come with Xcode developer commands, I tried the same command to find out the display on a new Air and it asked if I wanted to download the command tools

I did download the command tools, but it still did not work to no avail.
