1870 Narrow Rim Canada 5-cents Extra Fine (EF-40)

Before the coinage of 1870 was complete, new master tools for the Canada 5-cents piece were introduced with the result that two varieties were created for that year. The first has wide rims (including unusually long rim denticles) on the obverse and reverse, and the second has more conventional narrow rims.

Victoria Portrait Obverse 2:
Strand of Hair Detail: The starting point of the first strand is just above the temple, quickly forming a thick slanted curve to the braid.
Eye Detail: The upper eyelid is thin, but with greater definition. The lower lid is weak. Both lids meet at the corner of the eye.
