*** Edited by Staff to Add Year / Mintmark / Denomination to Title. Titles are Important! ***

Can anyone help identify which one of the six varieties this Coin is.

I may be embarrassing myself but to me this looks like a small date large leaves.
Has anyone matched this with Robs work on the 91's.

Cheers, Bill

When the '91's are starting to get well-worn and all of the digits grow larger, sometimes it's tough to tell. I think it looks like a large date, but I've been wrong before with these well-circ'd coins.

I'm LLSD on this one. LD's have a roundish hole in the 9, SD have an oval hole. I agree with okie that wear enlarges the date but the holes are my tell.
My humble opinion only.

After looking more closely at what I have, I'll change my opinion to small date. I never looked very hard at it . Sorry guys; I gave you bum scoop.
