Well then keep it.
If you think so, then keep it.
These are very clean . What can I learn as in are these coins keepers. I have many many coins that I try to study to get better.
If your definition of keeper has anything to do with them being high enough of a grade to be worth more than a cent, then no.
Are you able to identify which type of 1982 you have? Give it a try for a good learning experience.
@Ragu, keep em coming!
Both are large dates. As you look at more coins, identifying them will become easier, but it takes time and practice. IMO, both look to be copper, but weight is the best test (once again, looking at lots of coins helps you see subtle characteristics that can help with the id but it takes time and study). Spend some more time looking at the 2 and 8. It will eventually jump out at you.
And if you think this is challenging, just wait until you start getting into true doubled dies vs mechanical doubling and die deterioration doubling (the last 2 are common and add no value). Read the posts on CT, book mark the links to the goid reference sites posted, and study them. That's the best way to get good at finding errors. The only short cut I know is to listen to experienced numismatists that can point you in the right direction
