Thanks for your info. The site displays the two " Beads " ( large and small ) the difference is noticeable when side by side. My problem is still to identify small from large when only one size is apparent and I was looking for a reference such as 120 beads VS 140 beads. As you can imagine on uncerculated coins the value each differs by $ 300. each Regards Ken
