|Type 1: White indentation above “L” of Queensland|
|Type 2: Second “E” of Queensland has a long horizontal bottom stroke. Types 1 and 3 also have a long horizontal bottom stroke of the Second “E” so it is only type 2 if there are no indentions above “L” or between the “S” and the “L”|
|Type 3: The tail of “Q” is short and stumpy|
|Type 4: White indentation between “S” and “L” of Queensland|
Types 1 and 4 distinguishing characteristics are very similar and can be quite confusing. Type 4 is usually more pronounced and further to the left. The only one to easily identify is type 3.
