I've been emailing KurtS back and forth and we think I've got one. This was found in US circulation.

Yes, I sure think you found one! Definitely LB, and the reverse checks out too! The 5 is very similar in top stroke angle and degree of "pointyness", almost touching the maple branch:



Great find!

And it's a bit of a misaligned die too!

I sure wish mine were that easy to see, and tell that it is the large bead! All mine all look alike, and all seem to be the wrong size, and no point, either.

Kurt, and arthene, I have some info that may, (or may not, depending on the condition of the coin in hand), be helpful in determining the bead size.. The "N" in Regina is wider than three beads, IF it is small beads. If large beads, then the "N" is NOT as wide as the three large beads. I have a 1965 PL, in cellophane in hand, and sought out the means to verify the size of the beads. I hope this will clear up tose "borderline" cases.
