Comments

The difference between "large" coat of arms (KM# 247) and "small" (KM# 260) in the 1973 mintage is very hard to see in the naked eye. A better clue is to check the size of the letters, where big letters (small space between the text and the edge) would mean "large coat of arms", and vice versa.

1970. There are at least 2 varieties in date. They are easy to distinguish by numeral '9'.
Die 1: top of 9 is above the level of tops 1-7.
Die 2: top of 9 is under the level of tops 1-7.
