What I can't understand is why it would matter if it was a large or small date when the first coin is in such terrible condition.
A coins rarity can outweigh it's condition for value.
Are either of those a small date!?
What should I be searching for: both 1982 and 1982D small dates? Thank you.
What’s YouTube ?
The 1982 small date Philly in zinc, and the 1982 small date Philly in
copper has value only in the highest grades. It would be very rare to
find a mint state coin from 35+ years ago in a circulated roll.
They made 17 billion cents in 1982, they made so many that it surprises me they are even worth 1 cent.
Denver ONLY made the small date in zinc. And so, if you were to find a 1982, Denver, small date in COPPER, then that would be a valuable coin. 2 have been discovered. You could spend 31 1/2 years looking through a billion coins, 1 every second 24 hours a day 7 days a week and not find the super rare coin. I hope that helps.
(31 1/2 years = 1 billion seconds)
@Brina ...8 bus. strikes, 1 proof for 1982:
large and small date Philly copper and zinc,
large and small date Denver copper and zinc.
( you will have to weigh them, the Denver copper small date is the one that is rarest with, I think, only 2 found so far)
@Arizwak ...you should be able to identify the difference for yourself by now, you have been given the info and tools.
Regarding YouTube...it is a website where anyone can post information and get paid for clicks. The problem is there is no effort made to ensure the info is accurate, or they make shocking statements designed to make you click, but winds up being faulty by omission.
You can waste a lot of time there...JMHO...Spark
Put into perspective very succinctly, Sir!...Spark
That's the little brother of BoobTube.
There's 7 varieties
Large date Philly copper, large date Philly zinc.
Small date Philly copper, small date Philly zinc.
Large date Denver copper, large date Denver zinc.
Small date Denver zinc.
The 8th would be the 1982-S large date proof cent.
The 9th, there are only 2 known 1982 SD, Denver copper.
Thank you for the 411. It was as I had imagined and not worth a separate labor
No. Check the 8 and the 2. Are different then the large date
Separate names with a comma.
