Two main groups of the emission are known.

Die I - script of legend thicker, as the result letters next to vertical line are closer to it.
Die II - script of legend thinner, as the result letters next to vertical line are further from  it.

Reverse
Die A - script of legend thicker, as the result "20" of face value far from the rim. Mint mark and  privy mark are higher.
Die B - script of legend thinner, as the result "20" of face value closer to the rim. Mint mark and privy mark are lower.
