Is this a trick question. They are all between large denticles.

are you sure?
perhaps another look would be in order to determine the denticles...
large? small?
I do not do "trick" questions unless it is very obvious....

Hi coingirl

Hope this helps..It is my way to determine whether the "A" is pointing to or between the denticles.

See my picture below and then your picture below that.




The question is more important than the answer

Wert,
thanks for that. I know exactly what you are saying. And, I am aware of it.
But,, I most the time have a but, who says that there is NOT a in-between, as for numerous, lately discovered varieties?
the denticles on my coin B are 1,5 mm longer than on the A...
and here is another thing: check the top right point of the 7 on A and compare it to B...on the other post....
there is a difference in distance to the leaf
... also in the 9
it has been suggested the coin A may be MD. well, that would be the first coin I see with 100% MD all around, with the MD on both sides of letters and numbers, and reliefs.
I will take other images later today to be sure.

The easiest way to determine this is to compare the first "A" in GRATIA to the last "A". If the first "A" is between then the last "A" is pointing to and vice versa.

I just found another 1949 "A" to denticles. This pic will show you the difference of "between" and "pointing to". As I said earlier, if one "A" of GRATIA points to denticles then the other "A" will point to between.

agreed, and easy to see here.
lets for a minute look at the distance from one denticle to the next, or the previous one...
are they the same from one coin to the next?

Ikandiggit, that's a very clear way to determine the variety.
There is some verdigris in the way, but I think your 1949 cent "A" is an "A to denticles", the rest off-denticle.
