    Just because you found a 1970-S what makes you think it's a small date?
    Did you look up the markers for the 1970-S small date?
    Is LIBERTY weakly struck?
    Is the bottom of the point on the 9 sharp and not blunt?
    Does the inside of the 9 curl all the way around or does it point down?
    You only learn by doing your own work and not by having other people just provide the answers for you with no other comprehension necessary.
    By the end of the month 10 more people will ask the exact same question and never even bother to look for the photo in post #2 which explains everything.
    The 70-S small date is a rare coin. Most of them have been pulled from circulation over the last 48 years. But out of the billions of coins, everyone thinks they can just open up a roll of pennies and find one. Someone would have to spend one for it to be out there, or for it to have gone undiscovered. I've been looking for 48 years and never found one. Good luck on the hunt.

    I could not tell I’ve been looking at it all night. And I’ve seen variations and contradictions made from online photos.

    And @Michael K is a nether person.

    Sorry for the joking, @Ikw we get lots of people coming here trying to belittle the knowledgeable (not including me...for goodness sake) people and not wanting to learn anything about the hobby. You can trust what people on here say 99% or more of the time. Welcome to the hobby.

    As far as I know the "Poor Man's" only applies to the 1955 (I have one)

    If you look at the photo, you can see your LIBERTY is well struck (large).
    The KEY marker is the curl in the 9. You can see that your curl does not curl around far enough.

    It is a large date.

    There are many online stuff (especially on YouTube) that are just plain WRONG.
    If any video uses fuzzy images just skip it entirely.

    use websites that show more than just one or a few things such as:
    Also, Look online for a book as a reference for yourself and buy one (or many).

    And buy yourself a "Redbook" as an information tool. there are specific Cent/Penny books too

    The best knowledge you can have to figure out if someone is telling you something correct or not is for you, yourself to learn more about it. The more you know, the less you will get confused.

    Another thing is *ALWAYS* start with any circulated cent as Damaged.
    Then find those indicators that would make you think otherwise.

    Most ppl start out thinking their cent is the *lottery winner* and it's nearly impossible to convince some otherwise. You should read some of the threads here .. it's "funny" in one respect but truthfully somewhat tragic as they are trying to "get confirmation on false information" and they just don't want to believe it. There's been at least several this past week.

    V. Kurt Bellman Yes, I'm blunt! Get over your "feeeeelings".

    I swear there are Large Dates that have level numerals in the date. The shape of the 9 is "king".

    adjective: nether
    lower in position.

    I think I've been insulted.
