The second "9" is positioned lower and is oriented more towards the right (turned more clockwise) relative to the first "9". The 1799/8 Overdate is also very easy to identify with a 1799 date struck over an 1798 date on the die - resulting in parts of the underlying "8" being seen within and around the last "9" in the date. The differences between these two varieties is depicted below in the example comparison image:
