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

Large beads are near from the rim. 50-cents 1981 is a large beads.
Small beads are far from the rim. 1983 to 1989 50-cents coins are also small beads.


Both have the same number of beads.
