Does it seem like the left shoulder is different? In the upper sheet, the top of the arm is pointed, while in the bottom sheet it is rounded...

You are right. They are different.

I agree... I think the difference is small. But I think one of them have Thicker Numbers (1996) and the 1 looks like there is a slight difference too.

and exchange can you try to get a really good pics of 1 coin each?

Anyone care to guess what the melt ratio will be on this bad boy when it closes, still four days left!

Is this the small date from the Shenyang mint?
Just want to make sure as there is no indication in its description.

Also, I did not forget, I will post pictures of both 1996's.

The 1/2 oz silver pandas are on the move.  Even Jay's rare pandas has a 1/2 oz listed on his site as do many other dealers.  Have not seen this before as top dealers are listing 1/2 oz silver pandas.  I feel fortunate to have purchased (2) 1995 1/2 oz small dates about 2 months ago.  2 is better than none!  Thanks to members of CCF and their sharing of information.  Wish I had purchased more 1/2 ozs..........

I took better pictures of both 1996 Shenyang, Shenzhen front and back. There is definitely a difference.
This is what I can tell for now:

1) XiongMao_Ag was correct, there is a shoulder difference. The coin has pointy top shoulders vs round. (very obvious)
2) Tamao42 seem to also be correct. There is a small date large date variety.
3) The left leg of the panda on the coin is larger in width then the other. Also the curve by the ankles and leg is better defined on the other.

Now we just need names for the varieties. I've been calling these pointed shoulder and round shoulder on the LBC lists lately.

That makes sense as this difference is the most obvious.
