Looks like a plate 1 to me, but I'll leave it for someone to confirm if it is a plate 1A or 1B.

I agree with Bobby De La Rue. The Q is set very high. The A is set low and has an almost level base but tilts slightly left, i.e,. seems to rest on its left leg. The rays of the top -left star at 7 and 8 o'clock help identifying whether it is the original (1a) or later (1b) state, except for a few positions that do not include QA. Your example has well-defined rays at 7 and 8 o'clock. So, I would say it is from the repaired state of plate 1, i.e., plate 1b.
