Pretty sure its small. The beads on the large are nearer the edge. Large is the same as immediately prior years.

The 2 easiest ways of determining if you have a large bust vs the small bust are the beads, they literally touch the rim. For the small bust are about 3 mm off. The second is the hair detail, from the image you posted, look at the detail in the hair of the dollar coin, or the 50 cent piece, there is lots of detail.

The large bust hair has almost no detail in comparison, and jumps out once you actually see it. I have now found 3 of these in the wild, and once you see one in hand there is no way you can ever mix the 2 up.

That listing is definitely a Small Bust.
Will report it in the morning unless someone
wants to report it. (Mike?)
Thanks Smallcentguy

That's interesting but way too complicated for me.
I will just go by the distance of the beads from the rim
and the hair detail.
