I know what you were hoping for but I agree with Mike.
The easiest way I can tell is on the 2.
Large date- The diagonal line from the top loop to the left side of the base is straight (like this 2)
Small date- Curves slightly as it reaches the base. ( 2)
The large date also comes closer to the rim of the coin and is easier to see with one of each in a side by side comparison.
Hope this helps.
