This impression has more-or-less vertical shading lines on the light part of the cloak on the left shoulder of the figure on the left. These lines do not seem to appear on the impressions illustrated in The Illustrated Bartsch and Bellini, although this could be due to the quality of the illustrations. (The impression illustrated in Bellini is described as a second state.)
