Default 1970 S Penny

Found this coin roll hunting. I know the values cause I have the Red Book. The problem for me is the differences are soo subtle there's no way I can even tell if it's small date or large date. I know one is a high 7 and other a low 7 but I still can't tell the difference. Even the 2 photos in the Red Book look identical to me.
How does one tell which it is for sure? Maybe someone here has a better eye for these things?
Thanks

Correct, large date low 7. All small date/high 7's will also show weakness in "LIBERTY".
