Debbie writes: I have a 1966 Canadian Canoe dollar, but I can’t tell if it has small or large beads. They look small, but I don’t know what they look like if they’re large. Can you help me?
As you probably know that the small bead variety is worth a bushel of Canadian dollars but the large bead variety is, well, a hockey puck. Here is the way you can tell:
-In the large bead variety the apex (point) of the letter “A” in REGINA points to a bead.
-In the small bead variety the apex of the the letter “A” in REGINA points between two beads.
