1995 silver panda micro date ?
« on: June 23, 2014, 06:41:05 PM »
Hi All
Picked this coin up this weekend and was wondering if this is a small twig micro date, or just a small twig small date or small twig Large date  :confused1:
How would you classify it when sending it to NGC
Thanks in advance
Jack

 Not a Micro Date.

Yours is a Small Twig Large Date, like the one on the left in the photo.  The one to the right is a Micro Date ( Small Twig Small Date ).

The Micro Date's "1" in the date is inside of a line drawn down the left stair rail.

For you new collectors/readers the small date and micro date are not labeled by NGC and are easy to confuse.   See photos on this topic.  I hope this answers the questions you have.
Included are typical ebay listing photo and NGC pop of small twig small date.   Some sellers call it a micro date.  I refuse to buy any as they are not accurately ID'ed on the label.  Varieties are important and worth taking a chance.  Again, look at the date closely and photos on this topic...

Panda book  Small twig, small date - 31,000 surv. pop.   Small twig, micro date - 4,000 surv pop....
