    Do us old timers have to teach you young whipper snappers everything?
    Yes it is a small date. However, in my world the winner goes on date night. Not the loser.

    So yes, it is a small date. And yes you should be taking her out. Sheeeeesh, kids these days! ;)

    In 1982 they started with copper planchets. Then later in 1982 they switched to copper plated zinc.
    So it's a normal cent worth 1 Cent.

    It's just a little worn, that's why it doesn't jump off as a small date.

    @Nathan stroud, you're unlikely to win friends and influence people with that kind of beginning on CT. I suggest you follow the advice of @paddyman98, remove the listing, and of @cpm9ball and apologize.

    I'm sensing that you may not be familiar with mint marks or the mints. If my senses are off, I apologize.

    Your coin has no D (or S) under the date. That means it was minted in Philadelphia; in recent years, only the 2017 Lincoln cent (a copper coated zinc coin) had a P mint mark. A D mint mark means the coin was minted in Denver.

    So, putting it all together, your cent is a copper-tin-zinc concoction (3.11 grams - a zinc cent weighs about 2.5 grams) that was minted in the City of Brotherly Love (Philadelphia). According to Numista (https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces42.html) a circulated small date 1982 [Philadelphia] cent is worth ("worth" meaning actual sales, I think; and probably in a third party grader container) between one cent and 17-cents. I'd subjectively grade your cent 'technically' at about a very fine (VF), maybe a little better. Market grade . . . maybe fine (F) to VF. But I am no expert on grading (and grading is so subjective!) so take that with a mountain of salt. The tricky part is finding someone willing to buy a coin such as yours for more than maybe two to five cents.

    Note to self: He has no remorse! Otherwise, he would have apologized.
