I am having trouble distinguishing between small and large beads on the 1965 Canada Cent. The Charlton Standard Catalogue says "A" points between beads for small beads and points at bead for large beads. But in all my scans it looks like the "A" hits the bead on its edge so not really point at it and not really in-between it.

What would you say these four images are -- large or small bead variety?

My feeling is that 1, 3 and 4 are small beads and 2 is large beads?

Thank you!!

I have put aside about 40 1965 pennies that I havent looked at really closely yet to check for pointed 5/blunt 5 and small beads/large beads. One of these days I will get around to it.

"on the edge" is A-between. A-to-denticle hits right in the middle of it.
the coins that I've found are also "on-the-edge". It makes me wonder if there is yet a 3rd unrecognized variety. I don't think I have found a true A-between as illustrated in Charlton

splatto... just to confirm, do you agree with the identification of the above four images?
