    Notice how the bottom of the 7 goes past the bottom of the 0. On the small date they are flush. Also the S is futher away from the 9 om small dates. And the easy pickup on the small date is that part of LIBERTY is very weak.

    The more you VAM..

    The easiest tell for me is where the inner curl of the 9 points. In the small date it is more horizontal. On the large date it points to the bottom of the 7.

    It is also pointed on the small date and is squared off on the large date.

    Have recently viewed one still in a proof set when checking for the 1970-S 1941 Canadian planchet quarter. :D
