About 1970-S Sm. Date RD Lincoln Cents - Memorial Reverse
The 1970-S Small Date Lincoln cent is a common variety that is popular with series enthusiasts who want one example of each the small date and the much more common large date. The small date can be differentiated from the large date in two ways. The typical way to attribute a 1970-S Small Date is to draw an imaginary line from the tops of the 1 and 0 in the date; with the small date, the top of the 7 would touch that invisible plane. Also, the inscription LIBERTY is weaker on the small date than it is on the large date. The 1970-S Small Date Lincoln cent is considerably scarce in MS66RD and rare in MS67RD or higher.

About CDN Prices
All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.
CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.
Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.
Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.
CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.
Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.
