Please note also the crossing of the rings is different: on Type I the rightmost ring is on front of 2nd ring, when crossing on lower part, and behind the 2nd ring on top; Type II is reversed - right ring is on front of next one on top, and behind on loser.

Also note inscription on edge can be read normally when obverse is upside on some coins, and when is downside on others.
