I am never really confident with this series, since I don't collect them. Anyone able to say which type this is with a reasonable degree of confidence? To my eyes, the 8's look like large date, but the 5 looks like small date.

I only have the 1 of these and its in a low grade I'm not good at this series for identification small or large date?

Pretty hard to tell if numbers are doubled is there any other markers to identify small or large dates other than the date itself?
