The second variety is an 1811/0 overdate error which features an 1811 date struck on top of an 1810 date which resulted in part of the underlying "0" in the 1810 date being seen under the last "1" digit in the 1811 date. These features are depicted by the arrows in the example image above comparing the differences between the varieties.
