The large stars variety has slightly larger stars - but it is often difficult to distinguish the difference between the small stars and large stars. The large stars variety has a recut letter "T" in the word "LIBERTY" - which looks doubled. Also star number 10 is also recut and slight doubled at the upper-most spike. The large stars are slightly closer to the rim of the coin than the smaller stars.
