A 5p1L1 and 5p1L2 match plate variety

Here is the 5p1L1 stamp.

This stamp has a lower line break to the frame below and between the EN of ARGENTINA.

Here are two 5p1L2 stamps that are likely the same plate variety. It is possible that the scratch over the palm either came out after a light acid wash or was introduced during handling of the plate.
