    Jesse-

    If the 1 is lower than the 9, then it's a large date.

    Large date
    However a small date would be a very short upper stem on the 6. It almost looks like someone cut the stem in half. Also its curve is much lower than a large date.
    On the other hand if you got abox of pennies from your local bank you will find a small date. For sure a 1960-d.
    However 1960 small dates are quite rare and hard to find.
