A second 5p1L1 and 5p1L2 match plate variety

Here is the 5p1L1 stamp.

This stamp has a blue dot to the left of the R of REPUBLICA.

Here is a 5p1L2 stamp that is likely the same plate variety. It is possible that the scratch below ARGENTINA either came out after a light acid wash or was introduced during handling of the plate.
