How can you tell the difference between a Large Date and a Small Date 1970-S Lincoln Cent?  The differences between the two are very minor and sometimes difficult to pick out.  According to the book 100 Greatest U.S. Modern Coins *, there are attribution clues that make it possible to identify the two varieties with accuracy:

  • First, look at the position of the 7.  On the Small Date, the 7 is aligned with the tops of the 9 and 0.  On the Large Date, the 7 is lower than the tops of the 9 and 0. This is also why the 1970-S Small Date is referred to as a "High 7".
  • Next, look at the word LIBERTY. On the Small Date, the word LIBERTY is usually unclear and muffled.  On the Large Date, LIBERTY is crisp and clear.
