The engraved hatching strokes on this impression are different from those on the impression from the Metropolitan Museum in New York, which is used for the illustration in The Illustrated Bartsch. This is especially noticeable on the back and left sleeve of the large horseman with the spear. The MFA impression appears to be a later state.
