There are only two varieties that I know of and both those are the "Near" Variety.

The 1932 near/far has been discussed at length on any number of coin sites. You don't need to draw lines or take measurements. If the gap between the 3 & 2 and the gap between the 2 and leaf are the same, then it's a near. In a "far 2", the gap between the 3 & 2 will be much closer than the gap between the 2 and the leaf. search a couple more Canadian sites. Seen side by side ( a near and far), the difference just jumps out at you .. it is easily seen without any lines.

Or you can just compare the gaps between the 9 and 3 with the gap between the 3 and 2. It's clearly evident.
