Gordon Wrubel: Quickfinder Notes: On the Small 8 50C, the 8 is SMALLER than the adjacent 1s. The Large 8 variey has more of a "ball on ball" shape and appears slightly LARGER than the adjacent 1s. The populations of both are fairly close in number and Mint State examples graded. The Small 8 shows one MS-67, one MS-66 and one MS-65 at the top. The Large 8 shows two in MS-66, and four in MS-65 as of this writing.
