The Difference Between

Is there any way to tell the difference between a 1970s small date Lincoln cent and a 1970s large date Lincoln cent that would be easy to distinguish?

The Large Date is sometimes called the Low 7 variety. If the tops and bottoms of the "7" and "0" are even with each other, you have a small date. If the "7" is visibly lower than the "0" it is a large date. As of 05/2009 Numismedia lists a value of 1-2 cents for a large date specimen, while the much scarcer small-date variety retails for $9 to $20 depending on its condition.

There's a lot of confusion between the 1960s and 1970s. The 60s and 70s are two totally different decades. Hippies are for the mid 1960s through the early 1970s and disco is for the mid 1970s through early 1980s. For example, bell bottom pants were popular from the late 1960s through the early 1980s, same with platform shoes. In the mid 1960s through early 1970s, mod clothes were fashionable. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, straight-legged pants and low-soled shoes came back into style due to the punk culture. Besides, the peace symbol, the peace gesture, and the word "Groovy" was used no later than 1972.
