1955 Canada Cent, Shoulder Fold, Large Denticles

This is the least valuable of all the 1955 Canadian cent varieties. They made some without shoulder folds on the queen which at the time was a bit controversial. Apparently a nude looking shoulder was the twerking of the mid-1950s.

On this coins you can clearly see straps on her shoulder the look like folds. If not then the other way to identify the Shoulder Fold variety is to look closely at the serif on the DEI. The more exaggerated the serif the more likely it is the No Shoulder Fold variety worth more.

As for the Large and Small Denticles that is harder for me to identify since few clear pictures exist for the 1955 cent. If you have a good link that does not show only the 1954 cent then let me know.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent- Shoulder Fold, Large Denticles / Canada
Year: 1955
Mintage: 56,403,193
Metal: 98% Copper, 0.5% Tin, 1.5% Zinc
