I'm a little confused by the page for Nepal KM#690. Each year of mintage is listed twice, with one line identifying the coin as KM#690.2 and one line identifying it as KM#690.3, but I can't seem to find how to differentiate these two varieties. Can someone clear this up for me? Many, many thanks, Drew
