Comments

Two main groups of  Reverse are known.

Reverse
Die A - first numeral in date '1' with short nose.
Die B - first numeral in date '1' with long nose.


Combinations
Die A 1948-1974, 1976-1981.
Die B 1975.

Note. In 1961, 1971 and 1981 the style of second numeral '1' in date is with long nose, being the first with short one. It is not clear, why the appearance of numeral '1' was not consistent during the emission and the change of '1' happened just for one year in 1975.
