Jaime Hernandez:

In 1960 the U.S. Mint struck two different types of 1960 Proof Lincoln Cents. It struck a small and large date variety. Both varieties are fairly easy to distinguish if comparing one to the other.

The 1960 Proof Small Date appears to be significantly scarcer than the large date variety. Small Date 1960 Proof Lincoln Cents are scarce in PR68 or higher, especially with the deep cameo designation.
