Nope, that's the Large Date. One of the best ways to determine the difference is in the strength of the letters in "LIBERTY." On the Small Date variety, LIBERTY is very weak, especially on the Y. Also on the Small Dates, the top of the 9 is a bit flattened, and the end of the inside loop points back toward the 7. On the Large Date specimens, LIBERTY will be nice and strong, and the rounded-top 9 points more downward, down toward the top of the "S" and below the 7, instead of back toward the 7 as is seen on the Small Dates. This goes for BOTH the proof and business/circulation strikes. Check out the Lincoln Cent Resource website for more info. -Sam Gelberd, ANA Numismatic Educator.

It's a beautiful copper tone! Looks to me to be a large S... I would get a copy of The CherryPickers Guide. It's full of great info!

No I don't think so it would have to be smaller. You need to buy a book on coins. You have to learn to look them up your self. By the cherry pickers volume one and two they will help and the red book.
