    That's what collecting is about, if you like it keep it.

    Looks like a good one to put in your folder/album. If you're collecting from change, it may be a while until you find a nicer 83D

What can I learn as in are these coins keepers. I have many many coins that I try to study to get better.

    It depends what YOU consider a keeper. If you want to put together lincoln cent sets/folders from circulation, some of those are probably keepers.
    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.

    Nice circulation finds for an album but it there really isn't much, if any, premium for them.

    Are you able to identify which type of 1982 you have? Give it a try for a good learning experience.

    I will give it a shot. The darker 1982 is copper it would be a large date because the bottom of the #2 is rounded. The other 1982 is Zink small date because the bottom of the #2 comes to a point.I did not weigh them but a copper penny is 3.1 grams and a zink penny is 2.5 grams. I gave that answer with honesty.

    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
