    1805 Draped Bust- Is this a small 5 coin?

    I was going through more of my dads coins and came across a Draped Bust. Pretty toasted but this looks like a small 5 on the 1805. What do you think? It does have stems on back. Thanks

    Hard to tell but my gut says no. I think the top of the 5 on your coin is even with the top of the 0.

    The coin on the right is a small 5.

    I'm taking to a coin dealer on Saturday to have them look at a few coins including this one. Just trying to get a few opinions before going up. I saw that same coin on the right online and to me mine looks just like it. When you look at large 5 on left th 5 looks as big as the 180 but the 5 on mine looks smaller than the 180?
