We have looked at that site. It wasn't any solid help for us. It's too hard to tell.

It's tough to say. Beckett only lists a few of the variations, but essentially there are many different variations other than just the ones listed in Beckett. Similarly, the Ripken error has had more variations than listed by Beckett. It is somewhat frustrating when trying to figure out what you have. If you are looking to sell it then get as many good pictures as you can as it will help people distinguish the subtle differences.

I'd say PSA isn't even sure. The one on the right says Marlboro but looks to be a green tint actually, the one on the left says Ad Obscured and its a black box.

Ok further looking I see the green is more a scribble
then there is a total black box, a black out box on the sign, and the red tint.

Okay, you know there is a scribble too? Now I am not sure if that is the green or the scribble. The middle looks to be black box and the last the actual final run that we all see on a daily basis.

I just seen the green scribble online looking well thats what they call it.

So listed above

green/scribble
red tint
black out box in box
then total black out
