KM# 277.1 - Toothed border. No outlined coat. Monolith #1. Date with dots.
KM# 277.2 - Border with beads. No outlined coat. Monolith #1. Date with dots.
KM# 277.3 - Border with beads. Outlined coat. Monolito #2. Date with dots.
KM# 277.4 - Border with beads. Coat with outlined scroll. Monolith #3. Date with dots.
KM# 277.5 - Border with beads. No outlined coat. Monolith #4. Date with dots. Varieties exist with fine and coarse characters.
KM# 277.6 - Border with beads. No outlined coat. Monolito #5. This variant would be the only accepted variant for legal tender currency; because after the 1997 monetary reform all older coins fell in disuse, they can be easily exchanged at banks, but stores won't accept them because of the outdated designs. Most denominations got new types because of this reform, but in this coin's case the same coin had a design revision rather than a complete type change. Machines would mostly only accept the magnetic version of this variant because of this.

Easiest way to see the difference between 10 centavos 1986 KM#277.4 and KM#277.5:


Reverse: KM#277.4 has plain field around monolith while KM#277.5 has bushy field around monolith.


Obverse: KM#277.5 has incuse lettering on shield while KM#277.4 has lettering in relief on shield.
