    I can only ask if a varieties book or site is available for comparison?

    Below, find two images from the CoinsandCanada site. My old Zoell books show large (close to the denticles and touching or nearly touching the left ribbon) mintmarks.

    It seems my example may exhibit a smaller mintmark in addition to being set right?
