Hi Stampsfield. It is type II,
In type II the string is behind the arrow, in type I the string is in front of the arrow.

Thanks Peter but this is more compicated and on this stamp it is not easy to determine type.
5 on 7 1/2 with arow in front of arow is not exist.
It's two types 5 on 7.5 with arrow behind the arrow. Second type is very rare and valuable.

I am pretty sure it is still type II.
The "F" of Nafels is in a rotten place, but if the stamp was type III there would be some white showing above this "F". On your picture I do not see any evidence of white there.

I am no expert but reading from scott catalog I would say that this is from the second reprint but Type I

text from Scott

Second Redrawing
Bow-string behind stock. Thick loop above
crossbow. Letters of "HELVETIA" have serifs.

7&1/2 CENTIMES:
Type I Top of "7" is 1/2mm thick. The "1" of
" 1/2" has only traces of serifs. The two base
plates of the statue are of even thickness.
Type II Top of "7" is 1mm thick. The "1" of
" 1/2" has distinct serifs. The upper base plate is
thinner than the lower.
