Gordon Wrubel: Quickfinder Notes: The Small Date has a FLAT TOP 1 and the date is arranged in a STRAIGHT LINE. The Large Date has PEAK TOP 1 and the digits CURVE around the contour of the rim. While neither variety is rare, PCGS Population figures show the Small Date to be about three times scarcer in total numbers graded. Mint State numbers show the Small Date to be about twice as scarce as The Large Date. However, high grade examples, MS-66, and 67, are available for both varieties. The Small Date even boasts a Top Pop MS-68!
