    Welcome to CT, Ginny! Both are large date and worth 1 cent. Was there a particular question you had about them?

    Sorry. It seems that I have lost my reading glasses..

    Maybe if you look at these pictures you can easily tell the difference

    Those are definitely both large dates. Now, the only debate is if they are zinc or copper.

    ...so they are both copper. They also look to be AU58 and are red brown color. Others would say they have no value and to spend them. IMO, they could be put in flips and saved for giving to Young Numismatists, possibly a son/daughter, grandkids...niece/nephew...they have survived 38 years and in good condition...Spark

    Thank you. Yeah I’ll probably do that. My youngest son is very interested in collecting coins. Thank you for the information.
