Numista states

Early variety; right flame extends between 4th and 5th spine
Late variety; right flame overlaps spines

I am not familiar with the coin. Can anyone tells me if this is the earlier or later variety?

And which variety is more rare?






Thanks

It's the earlier more common variety of the 1892. (this is the only year that has both varieties)

Early variety; right flame extends between 4th and 5th spines
Late variety; right flame extends between 3rd and 4th spines

Look at around 2 o'clock on the first image, inside the circle of beads. There's a flame that goes from about 1pm - 2.30pm. To the right of the flame, you can see 4 spines, and the end of flame finishes between the 4th and 5th spines.(i.e. you can see 4 spines). On the later variety, it extends between 3rd and 4th spines, so you can see 3 spines.

Here is an 1893, which has the same as the later variety 1892:
