Three main groups of the emission are known.

Obverse
Die I - portrait more convex, script of legend narrower and thicker, as the result the base of the neck above the middle of "B" to "ALBERT", .
Die II - portrait flatter, script of legend wider and thinner, as the result the base of neck to the right of the middle of "B" to "ALBERT", .

Reverse
Die A - script of legend narrower and thicker, as the result legends far from the rim. Mint and privy marks higher.
Die B - script of legend wider and thinner, as the result legends closer to the rim.  Mint and privy marks lower.
