for those who don't know - here is what to look for
Not too sure that this correlation/diagnostic is correct...I will get back after reviewing.
edit: I stand corrected. The Type II letters are thinner than the Type I letters. The difference is not as drastic (or reliably distinguishable IMHO*) as the 1976 Type I and II letter thickness differences.
*note that the three images presented at the Numista link provided above seem to show that the Type II letters are thicker than Type I, which supports my thinking that it is an unreliable diagnostic.
Numista Type I...
Numista Type II...
Numista Type III...
@Lon Chaney. Thanks, and good luck.
I guess you guys are right - the ridge on the earth that goes from 3 0'clock to 6 o'clock appears on the Type 1. I was looking mainly at the Caribbean islands. Darn.
@Snowman - what's up with the Type 6 in your post? I thought there were just 3 types. Where's type 4 and 5?
Sorry for the confusion but I like that picture - gives a quick closeup Earth view.
