Hello!

I inherited a coin collection by a hobbyist relative. Meaning, he just liked to search his coins for ones he thought were rare or valuable. So everything has been in circulation.

If you had a large bead 1965 nickel, is it still valuable if it is circulated and has obvious wear and tear?

If you had a large bead 65 circulated it would definitely be worth much more then face value. Just don't ask me to identify it because untill I see one in hand don't think I can tell the difference but iv got a couple rolls to look at when I can...without counting beads that is lol.

He had it marked as the large bead 1965 Canadian 5 cent piece. Each coin is marked. I guess I should have it verified before I ask questions! I am trying to figure out how to get the valuable ones to the collectors, without giving it away completely. Thank you for pointing out that I need to make sure first.

Yes a LB is valuable even in circulated condition,
even worn can be worth in the hundreds of dollars.
There are a couple of ways of telling a Large Bead from a Small Bead
but for a novice collector, the easiest way is to count the beads.
You do not have to send it out to be verified.
A Large Bead has 138 beads
A Small Bead has 119 beads
Just count half the beads and double, you should be within a bead or two.

Nice! I had found a 65 large beads many years back. I had it certified from ICCS at EF40. I put it in an auction from colonial acres and it went for $2100!

I still to this day Don't know why it went so high. Trends at the time showed it should have been worth $1000.
