Australia-The 1932 and the 1937 Versions of the 1 Shilling "Lyrebird" Postage Stamp-Illustrated

Shown below are the two versions of the Australian stamp issue of the 1 Shilling "Superb Lyrebird". The design was issued twice (with minor variations) first in 1932 and again as part of a definitive set in 1937.
While the designs are not easy to tell apart the 1932 version is a larger stamp as can be seen in the illustration below. The 1937 version is also a dull-green, the 1932 a green (with a shade variation of yellow-green).
A detail of each stamp is shown below the first illustration. The earlier version first.
