I got a new book about Canada Small Cent varieties and errors. In the book, I found some new varieties for 1966 and 1984.

For 1966, there are Small Beads and Large Beads varieties. I found both in PL, but I was wondering if anyone knew if these two varieties are also found in MS (Business Strikes), SP, and PR?

For 1984, the book shows an example using the reverse side of the coin or date side. Is this the best way to determine this variety, I thought it might be like the 1983 date and you would use the obverse side or head side. Also, in what mint strike types can both varieties be found? For 1983 Far Beads, it is only found in MS, but Near Beads is found in MS, PL, SP, and PR. So, what strike types are the Far and Near Beads varieties of 1984 found?

It is shocking to me that these varieties exist in Canada Small Cents and so little information is available about them. It is also equally shocking that Canadian coin collectors are not dividing their sets up based on strike type as each strike type is a different variety.

Thing is, it gets really tough because the beads are the closest devices to rim, and are easily affected by both Machine Doubling and Die Deterioration Doubling. They also change in size as the die wears.

I am more shocked at the complete lack of interest in the 1965 Doubled Die Reverse 1c (doubled bud). Those are easy to identify, and tough to find.

That's easy to answer - No. There were no 1c specimen strikes in 1966, and 1c proof strikes were not made until 1981.

100% agree! 1965 doubled bud has been on my radar for a while now and I'm surprised you barely hear anything about this variety.


As for the OP regarding the large/small bead 1966, I don't think there is such variety, the beads will expand over many strikes due to wear, creating the illusion of being different sizes.

The telltale signs of large beads or small beads are if you can fit a bead perfectly between 2 beads and still have room on either side, which cant visually be done to the coins that the OP posted, so to me both are large beads, one being struck with a fresh die and the other with an aged die IMO.
