The 3 pennies in line B, weigh only 2g, and the ones from line A, weigh 3g each
It appears that all of those are large date to me.
I feel there is a more definitive factor than the “style” of the “2”, in determining the correct date size.
There is a drastic spacing difference between the “2” and the rim of the coin on a “small date”, where as on the “large date”, the “2” is significantly closer to the rim.
Ok, thank you. Could the 3 pennies weighing 2g each be a Zincoln 1982?
If I’m not mistaken, if the weight is below 3.0g it is a zincoln, as the zinc pennies weigh a typical, 2.5, or thereabouts.
Now, if there’s a drastic difference, meaning the number you’re getting isn’t closer to either of those, you may have something unique.
When you say, "or something damaged", are you referring to damage at the mint, affecting their weight, or post Mint damage?
Small and Large Date are varieties. Not errors.
They are all Large Date varieties.
Thank you once again.
however, I have no idea how to post photos, or where the correct location to do so would be. Haha. Help?
Don't post them here or you'll be guilty of hijacking and banned forever. Ha Ha! J/K!
First, you have to download your pictures to a file on your computer. Once you have them in a file, then you can upload them a thread on here.
Which thread does a 1994 DDO/DDR Nickel belong on?
