1858 Small Date Canada 5-cents VF-EF (VF-30)

Small Date Variety: Only one matrix has been identified for the Province of Canada five cents of 1858, which carried the Small Date. When the decision was made to increase the font size of the date on the Canada 5-cents from small to large, and so as to not cause the small date working dies to become obsolete, a large date four numeral gang punch was produced to overstamp the remaining small date working dies. With a new large date, this produced three large over small date varieties.
