Gordon Wrubel: Quickfinder Notes: The 5 on the Large 5C variety has Long Curving Top and is the SAME SIZE as the C. The Small 5C variety has a Short Triangular Top 5 that is SMALLER than the C. The Large 5C variety is more common by a factor of three in all grades, but is twice as rare in top condition (66 or better). The highest graded, currently, is MS-67. The Small 5C variety boasts a MS -68 example.
