I am having trouble identifying these varieties, what is everyone else seeing on them?

Small or large, double 5 if small?

Both are small 5, the most common one. IMO there isn't enough detail on the coin to see if there is double 5.

Thanks, it is the chunky bit at the top of the 5's that I am curious on. Having a hard time seeing clearly with my loop. The bottom one seems more likely, but could just be wear and age.

Here is a better picture of the date for the 2nd coin, I think it shows the 5/5

I'd say it's small 5 over large 5. The underlying 5 has a longer top and sticks out on both sides of the smaller 5, and the back(down stroke)is also evident, and the ball.

Now that I think of it it could very well be a 5 over 5. Here is an example.




Thats like a $50 coin in G-4

Silver Nickel's photo - If the underlying 5 is not a larger 5, then I think it's triple-punched. You would need two extra punches to make both the raised top part, and have the down stroke end even with the same line on the prominent 5.
Purelywasted's close-up - The downstroke on the underlying 5 doesn't go down as far as the Silver Nickel's example. (maybe was longer but lost from wear)

Photo # 2, IMO, may be a S5/S5 but u would have a hard time proving it. there is not enough evidence/ underlying remains

would be interesting to see what ICCS would say?

AND, in the future, Please remove coins from 2x2, as we all know what a 2x2 looks like. The plastic does impair the image of the coin. especially when it is difficult like this coin is.
