Gordon Wrubel: Quickfinder Notes: The 5 on the Small 5C variety has a Short Triangular Top and is SMALLER than the adjacent C. The overall population shows the Small 5C to be scarcer than the Large 5C by a factor of three. In top condition (MS-66 or better), however, The Small Date has almost twice as many examples recorded, including and astounding MS-68.
