I have two quarter proofs with a different reeding design. The 1969s weighs 5.7 and is the one showing a narrower top surface of the reeding. (Pic on the left)
The 1968s weighs 5.4 with a larger to surface of the reeding.
Any ideas?

The collar is the third die used when striking a coin.
Since most people don't look at the reeding, differences are normally not noticed.
Why there are differences is another question.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Possibly new and worn collars. Could also be a difference in the collars between the two years. As Kanga said not a lot of attention has been paid to the collars and there could be differences in the collar from one year to the next.
