I can't explain the difference. The Valk has not been tweaked. The only think I can come up with as a possibility is a mis-marked and mis-stamped Viking.
That would explain the beefier nose. The mark for a Valk is supposed to be VL and the mark for a Viking is supposed to be VK. We used to use VK for Valkyries but had to change when we introduced the Viking.
