How to tell Fischer 14 apart from Fischer 18

There are no beams on both Fischer 14 and 18. The difference between these stamps can be determined by looking closely below the 'a' in Miejska. You can see a small dot there on Fischer 18, while on Fischer 14 there is no dot:

Fischer 14 (no dot)

Fischer 18 (dot below 'a')
