Yes it is a 1982 D Small Date. From the "bubbles" in front of Lincolns' bust it looks to be a common Zincoln and not the extremely rare copper 1982D Sm date.
How much should the rare one weigh
Are these better pictures
Yes that is a small date. The zincs weigh 2.5 grams and the copper weighs 3.1 grams. The copper is the rare one. You can see the zinc coming through the plating on the reverse of your coin.
@furryfrog02 There are 2 but how much does the rare one weigh? Oh I see it was answered
Oh ok thank you
But at least I finally figured out what a small date looks like and thank you again
Here is a handy reference for that, although once you see the difference, it is not
as subtle and tricky as the 1960 or the 1970-S IMO (the 82 is easy):
yeah, I was going to saw that. You're catching on now.
Nailed it. Proud of you. I understand. It took me along time to be able to tell the difference. No you can answer next person who posts and asks. Bravo for JOY
Are you honestly asking a question that i know the answer to and you don't. I'm taking 5000 likes away from you as a penalty
Love this, I have the fever
I have 2 Lincoln cents one is in rough shape the other has like a really shiny rainbow color on the back this is the 2014 Lincoln cent and the other one is a 2003 D Lincoln which is much larger than the other on the 2014 the edge of the coin also looks funny and help would be appreciated
The large one looks like a Texas cent. You put a cent inside a leather belt, and hit it with a rubber mallet and it gets larger. I have a few of these. Some get much larger. I'm not sure about the edge.
The rainbow could just be toning on the copper plating.
The zinc cents tone easily and kept out in the air, that color will change over time.
I'm very curious to know what happened to the 2014-D cent. Very strange looking.
I know me to its weird looking and its not flat it sorta has dimple of sorts
The color on the back side of the 2014 is like glassy looks like the colors in a seashell
I'm sorry the 2003
Also its the same thickness as a normal cent
