Poll Question
I picked this up today based off this rather lousy photo. I am betting that the photo lighting distorts and expands the denticles. I am not even 50/50 on this one but I thought I would take the chance.

What do you think?

When I get the coin I will post a proper photo.



Poll Choices
  Small denticles
  Large denticles

Hard to tell from that photo but I voted Small. Increasing and tweaking an area without as much reflection, there seems to be a wider space between the denticles then on a Large. Hope I'm right in this case. It would be a nice pick up

Large. Not small enough, to be "small".

Here are both together if that helps any.. I have looked at thousands of these and there is a range of size. I would say that a medium denticle exists...but that would complicate things.

Well, definitely smallish. Not sure what ICCS would say.
