    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    You found a 1982 copper small date. It's one of the 7 common varieties. The weight is within mint tolerance.

    1982 D Copper is the Swish, is that what I was hoping for @Oldhoopster?

    See if this does you any good, Hagen. I'm not an expert on anything. I'm still learning, just like you.

    1982-D SMALL DATE copper is the rare one. You got 2 out of 3 right. That gets you a coin worth one cent.

    In 1982, the Denver mint made slightly more than 6 BILLION cents. So far 2 copper small dates have been authenticated. The odds of winning the Powerball are a lot better at at only 1 in 292 million. Just something to keep in perspective :D

    Thanks Fellas, both responses are much appreciated. Apparently just had stuck in my head "copper 1982" and didn't dig into the guts of it. Thank you

    Yes, the 1982 D copper small date is the swish. Man...... upload_2019-7-20_1-10-37.jpeg large/small, copper/zinc, Philly/Denver.....It's hard to keep that stuff straight.

    I don't understand the fascination with this transitional coin I found to be a sad day for the iconic copper Lincoln cent
    P,S, good luck with the Powerball!!!

    Only 2 have ever been found. I don't think others will ever be found again. So everyone should just stop driving themselves nuts looking for one. IMHO :stop:

    Easiest way for me is looking at the shape of the 2 then the shape of the 8. Look at the pic in post 11 ( you may want to save it for reference). The 2 on the Lg Date has a straighter downstroke, while small date has a curve. The 8 on the Lg Date has both circles about equal size, while the small date looks like a snowman.

    Hope this helps


    Thank you very much. You can not believe how much all you people help.

    I still look at my 82 d when I get them but I know the chances are slim. My holy grail transitional is the 92 d CAM
