Gordon Wrubel: Quickfinder Notes: The Small Date utilizes the smaller logotype intended for the $5. denomination. The point of the 1 is well right of the point of the bust and its tip is about 3X more distant from the truncation than the Large Date 1. The flag stand of the 5 is rather blunt at its base and NEARLY TOUCHES THE BALL giving it a "closed" appearance. The Large Date has tall numerals. The flag stand of the 5 comes to a very sharp point that is rather close to the ball and in line with its left edge. The point of the 1 lines up with the point of the bust and its tip is close to the truncation. The Small Date is about 2 1/2 times rarer than the Large Date. Both varieties are rare in Mint State. Not even a whisper of a Gem has been heard.
