1870 Wide Rim Canada 5-cents VF-EF (VF-30)

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 1:
Strand of Hair Detail: Just to the right of the Queen's eye is a thick, truncated strand with two very thin strands rising to the brow.
Eye Detail: The upper eyelid is thin with little definition towards the corner of the eye. The lower lid loses definition approaching the corner.
