    This looks very much like the 1970 s small date penny. What do you think?

    Most of them are always going to be large dates.
    The small date is valuable for a reason. I haven't found one in 48 years.
    The curl of the 9 goes all the way around. (see photo) In the LD it points down to the foot of the 7.
    The point of the 9 is sharp, in the LD it is blunt.
    Liberty is usually weakly struck. In the LD it is a better strike.
