Two 5 pesos 'Servicio Oficial' plate varieties

I have several used specimens of each of these varieties. All 5 pesos 'SO' stamps are NGR paper.

The first plate variety has a speck of grayish green background top right of the palm tree.

The second plate variety has a break in the outer line of the denomination box, and a frame scratch pointing out of the design bottom center.
