On the left is what we think is a "small dot" dollar and obviously on the right is the large. Opinions please? What is the value of something like this?

turn it around and make sure it is a 1966, as the 1965 SB looks exactly the same!
will pay 3 grand ungraded if it is a 66.

Yup, what HHB said. I was ecstatic to find a small beads one day, only to eventually flip it over and realize that a 1965 had gotten mixed in with the group of 1966's. If it is indeed a '66, nice find!

It's definitely a '66. We have an extensive collection of 65's and 66's and this is the only SB.

Where do you all recommend we send it for grading etc? I've read so many varying opinions on this board, and I'm a little nervous sending it off in the first place.

If your goal is just confirmation and keeping it, I'd get it graded at CCCS because of the convenience factor. If you're looking to sell in Canada, then ICCS and if looking to sell in the US I'd get it into PCGS especially if you're going to use a US auction.

To avoid turning this into a discussion on TPG's, I will refrain from stating personal preferences, but in my experience, Ugly is right. Grade at ICCS if you intend to sell within Canada and PCGS or NGC if you intend to sell within the United States.

Thanks for the info. I did note the varying discussions bout TPG's, so thanks for not turning it into another one! What is my best bet for selling it? Canada, I would assume?

Do all the small bead varieties have the wide rim ?
All The pictures I have seen have the wide flat rim.

There is a pretty stable market for these if certified by ICCS, PCGS or NGC (and some would argue CCCS). You will get about the same money in the US or Canada on this, no matter where you auction it. If you go PCGS and get a PL66 grade (the best they have given) keep my address. I am looking for one and would pay strongly or bid strongly if you put it up for auction.

Steve,
I think eBay US still does not recognize ICCS and certainly not CCCS. If you advertize ICCS certified coin in the title or in the description then your auction can be cancelled. This happened to me more than once.... A couple crack pots roam the auctions and report any sellers that do not follow this stupid rule (I was told from an eBay employee that I trust). Unfortunately, in the US I recommend PCGS or NGC.

I sold almost all my ICCS now, so I'm clean from these toxic assets.
