    Here are some Canadian pieces which are new to my collection. Trying to identify obverse types / other varieties and would love any input. Thanks!

    Could not find photos for the 1880 #3. Can not compare with anything.
    1896 5¢ coin is Not the large date from what I can see.

    I feel like my 1880 might be obverse #3 because of the double chin and the dimple...

    I think you are correct with that comparison according to those photos.
    Just remember I only have a one dimensional view.

    The 1882 is an Obv 1 (but could be 1a/1 on closer inspection). There were 5 different Obv types for 1882 ... 1, 1a, 1a/1, 2 and 2/1. The Obv 2/1's are the scarcest and Obv 2 the most common.

    The 1886 is a nice variety, since most 1885's are Obv 2's ... yours is a 1a and is worth about 2X an Obv 2
