Wanted to know if there were two different 3's used in 1932? I have two different examples, one looks taller and more rounded the other looks to be smaller and has a different angled middle bar in the number 3. Here are pics!

I see no difference. Your vertical lines are not identically placed.

Oh, now I see something different in the curvature of the arc on the top left of the 3.
