Sorry Rick, that's a large beads-blunt 5. The pointed 5 has a much sharper point than blunt 5. I know-- because I've been searching for the 1965 1 cent small beads, and both blunt and pointed varieties elude me for some odd reason.
I don't know about that, here a photo of the blunt5 I was using the 5 and how far the blunt 5 is recessed into the 5 heres the pointed 5 which is pretty even or a little past the 5 and heres mind the blunt 5 has a shorter 5 then the pointed 5 hopefully more people will show-up and give an opinion too

Thanks jello, I was at a coin show yesterday, (polish coin show usa) and sat with ken potter, he took photos of 3 of my coins for the new cherrypickers guide, hes only looking for new errors, nothing old ! If I would of known, I would of bought some cool coins to put in the guide, I have some errors no one has seen me post, saving them for non cents, I'll be photoing them soon to put on cointalk, thanks again !!!!!!!!!!!!!
It looks like a blunt 5 to me as well. You can also tell by the tail, which is almost horizontal. The crispness of the strike and no wear will make some blunts look like pointed ones, but the pointeds have a much larger rake/angle on them
