I am 99.9% sure this is a Large Bead variety, but I am having a hard time telling if this is a blunt or pointed 5. My hunch is it is a blunt 5 but it does look slightly more slanted than the Sm Bead 1965 I have in my book.

The Coin.


The Beads.


The Date.


So which 5 is this, the blunt or pointed variety? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks...Mont.

Blunt.

Quick tip: unlike the 1985 Pointed/blunt on the top of the 5, the 1965 pointed/blunt is on the bottom of the 5 at the end of the loop. See how yours has that flat edge at the bottom point of the 5, that's the blunt variety. The other variety comes to a tip there.
