Default Harvey Kuenn #132 1955 Bowman Error Variation

I hate to waste a thread with this, but my curiosity has gotten the best of me.

I recently acquired the set and it contains all variations. I have looked line by line on the two cards and I cannot tell a difference - so either I have two of the same variation or I am looking in the wrong place. Can someone set me straight on what I am looking for and let this thread die a quick death?

On the back one is spelled Kuenn and one is spelled Kueen in the black box.

There it is! I have both variations. I would have looked at those cards for the next 2 hours and not spotted it!

There is also a 3rd version. His name is spelled Kueen on the front and back. I have never seen one but have seen it on a checklist.

Ugh... and thus the search begins...

Al, do you have this variation?

I have seen this on checklists as well but have never seen one. Does anyone here have one?

Interesting. I never knew about the third variation. I have about 6 or 7 Harvey's so I will have to go through them tonight. Fingers crossed!!!

Wow, I was a serious collector of that set in high grade for a decade or so, and never even heard of that third variation - much less saw any examples-

PSA doesn't list it as a separate variation, just "Name misspelled" so we don't know if PSA has graded one or not.
