5 Reichspfennig, 1924-1936, Circulation Issue

The slots in the "5 Reichspfennig, 1924-1936, Circulation Issue" set are confusing and seem duplicative. Every slot has both a plain version and a "REICHPFENNIG" version. Is this correct or duplicative? The years when both RENTENPFENNIG and REICHSPFENNIG were issued should have a designator, but it seems like none of the other years should.

For example, I own cert number 2801711-075, which currently occupies the slot for 1924J; however, as you can see in the attached picture, it carries a "REICHSPFENNIG" label. Should this coin not fill the 1924J REICHSPFENNIG slot? Clearly, 1924 was a year with both RENTENPFENNIG and REICHSPFENNIG, so this coin should have a designator to tell the difference between the two types of 5P. Why bother to have the plain slot then?

As another weird example, I own cert number  2697065-116, which currently occupies the slot for 1935G REICHSPFENNIG; however, as you can see, the label carries no REICHSPFENNIG designator. This makes sense, as reichspfennigs were the only 5P issued in 1935.

It would make sense to have someone look into the coins in this set and rationalize the slots. If both types of labels exist, then their should be one slot, with two types of labeling eligible for each slots, instead of having duplicate slots for each label.
