    This is not a 1970 s small date. This is one tough find until you find one. Check my post I found one not long ago. The 9 is What you really have to look at the tail will point more towards the 7 on small date versus on a regular on it will point toward the S. Also in the small date the 7 will be noticeably higher also. Hope this helps.

    +1 It is easy to distinguish once you see photos of an actual small date. Pay attention to the Nine.

    "LIBERTY" on a small date will look a bit weak as well. Here, yours looks normal.

    The first thing I look for is the weak "LIBERTY".
    "Hello from deep within the copper mines of Western Kentucky."

    "Keep your hands off of my stack."

    I lived in Tennessee for years myself. I lived in Clarksville. Are you a Wildcat fan?

    I generally look at the 9 on 70 s's . If it makes a sharp curve inward I set it aside but if its pretty wide I put it in the copper pile n im crhing. Also the Liberty is usually a weaker strike, and the top of the 7 is higher than the top of the 0.

    If I understand correctly now? If it has a crease in the bend of the "7" it's a LD....Right?? I tried all the tricks & still couldn't tell them apart but someone in a different forum told me if it has a crease its LD!
    I think itr worked for me? Watch me be wrong & that made it so easy for me,LoL He said a small date will never a crease?
    Thank you for your time to help!

    Like I said earlier in the thread - Pay attention to the Nine. It is all about the Nine. Weaker Liberties and Creases in the Seven will be hard to discern especially on circulated examples. The Nine won't change.

    I can't tell which one it is, but I am curious why all the small dates have weaker "Liberty"?
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    I am not really sure on this one. I am sure a more avid collector than I could give a better answer. I would assume it would be some kind of die error. I had the hardest time of finding one but when I did there is no doubt it is one. Several I see on eBay listed as small dates are not. If you will look at the ones that are graded and labeled small date you can really see it.
