Here are a number of different die types - see if you can spot the differences in size and shapes of the top and bottom medallions and the differences in fonts, and positions of the circular ornaments at the right of the stamps

That is quite a range of die variations there. Some are perhaps easier to spot than others. I presume that you are attempting to catalogue or list these, and that would seem to be quite a task. Firstly actually desribing each in words would be difficult. So you are left in a situation where you call them types i, ii etc. To make this logical you not only have discover a chronology for these, and also make sure that you have no gaps.
Is a particular font always matched with a particular medallion type?

I don't think it is a Font as such - all of the lettering - like the illustrative elements - looks individually hand-cut rather than mechanically produced.
Happiness doesn't come from getting something we don't have, but through recognising and appreciating what we do have.
