In 1996, the KM#18.2 and KM#18.3 varieties have thicker design features (most notable in the clouds). These two types can be distinguished by their weights and by the different forms of the numeral '৬' in the date: for KM#18.2, the left-hand stroke is vertical (relative to the numeral) whilst, for KM#18.3, the left-hand stroke is slanted towards the previous numeral.
