Take one out and look at the bottom. Blue glass stands out on the check and appears to be set in as best I can describe as plaster Paris. The other is etched (recessed) into the glass and painted.

Generally, but not always, the blue glass font is thicker than the etched. Unless the keychecks were restored, etched keychecks are usually black and silver. Although that is not always the case, I have seen white and blue etched on split counter machines.

The only sure way to tell is remove the keycheck

Really early ones had the letters in glass crystals that I guess were melted on clear glass painted white, because they are raised on the bottom side. These were usually blue.
