There are three different obverse and three different reverses
issued for the sixpences of William III reign. However obverse
two is rare and could be a pattern.

Some however have different issue marks in angles on the
reverses.
Roses in angles - silver from West of England mines
Plumes in angles or below bust - silver from Welsh mines.

Due to the "Great Recoinage" during William III reign,  
hammered silver coins were to be withdrawn and replaced with
milled coins instead. A lot of the coins were minted at local
mints until 1698 to produce the large quantities required.
They have letters below the bust: B= Bristol, C=Chester,
E= Exeter, N= Norwich & Y= York.
