    A friend is looking at this auction for 3 BU 1970S Small Date Lincoln cents.

    I don't know much about that variety, and the price seems too high given that it doesn't truly picture the actual coins.

    He asked my opinion before bidding, and I'm inclined to pass, but I'm wondering if anyone here has more experience with this variety and has an opinion?

    I payed 35$ dollars for a 70s Small date and considered it good.. But getting 3 for 80 bucks you could make a little resale on that if you are a dealer. Oh and I laughed hard when I seen the small date roll for 15 dollars haha. :goofer:

    Thanks for everyone's imput. If there had been an actual picture, front and back, of the three coins I might feel better about it. I'm hoping my friend doesn't go for it.

    I also have rolls of 1970S that I got for very little, but they've all been large date.

    I'd buy circulated 1970-S small dates @$15.00 a roll!!

    Definitely looks small date. As for BU, who knows. I certainly would not pay that price without seeing photos of the full obverse and reverse of each coin.

    The auction ended at $118 for the three coins. Fortunately, my friend didn't bid.

    My uncle claims that he has a whole roll of 70-s Small dates. He is in another state right now (I forget which one) and says a man let him go threw all of his old coins and there was a roll of 1970-s coins and claims that the are small dates but I won't get to see for at least 6 months until he comes back. But if he really does HE BETTER GIVE ME SOME! :D
