    Hello guys,

    I have this 1982 Lincoln cent (Large Date) Zinc error coin weighing in at 2.55 grams. I see the Obverse Rim on the left is a bit cracked. Is this considered a collar clash or MAD? I also see the "W" in WE is half missing.

    Lastly are plating blisters indicators of a zinc coin? Also wanted to know if a 1982 Large Date Zinc penny is more common than a 1982 Small Date zinc penny?

    The obverse rim is not cracked. It just looks that way as the rim all but disappears. Yes it's a MAD but that's all I see. The rim is off enough to keep it but there's really no extra premium. That's why the letters in WE look the way they do. The large date is more common than a small date. If with so many minted it really doesn't make a difference.

    Plating blisters are very common in Zinc Cents. After 38 years, they still are.
