    Hey everyone,
    Lincoln on right as you look at pics I came across in spare change and weighed it 3.08g and initially thought it was large date variety until I looked at date under loop. Then I remembered I had put another Lincoln that appeared to be a small over large date and posted with question. As you see side by side and number 2 digit on date have had either coin damage or maybe die strike. On close up pic you can see the difference lincoln in right has as it is square while Lincoln on left is rounded. Did large date dies have 2 digit rounded or did some large date contain the squared? Thanks again.

    You're welcome..

    The chances of finding a 3rd example of a 1982 Small Date Copper D Mint Mark Cent are astronomical. It's interesting if someone would find another. I won't say it's totally impossible but you will probably drive yourself mad in doing so. I personally don't bother.
