    Are you searching for a 1982 D Small Date? It has to be made of copper and weigh 3.11 grams give or take a few grams..

    Only 2 have ever been discovered and attributed.

    First one -

    When I started collecting and wanting to learn more about coins and currency I was trying to look for the 1982 d small date and I quickly learned that I would drive myself crazy looking for it lol. I'm trying to learn the different types and varieties and things now. So that I could tell the differences between coins when I look at them so that way I'm not searching the web and books with every coin I come across lol. It's easier and saves alot of time when u already know those types of thing right when u see it. It's all just very interesting to me and I want to learn as much as I can about coins and such... Sure would be real nice to find that third one though...
