    check the date, date size, now check the weight. It may be bronze, and it is a Philadelphia mint, but not worth $1,495.00!!
    Below is the real deal

    And now from NGC the real deal:


    check the date, date size, now check the weight. Note the D mint mark.

    Beware of scammers, thriving on confusion. This is the true small date, 1982 D bronze (3.11), NGC has only recorded 2.

    Note in the top OP, the 1982 small date P bronze (3.11) is not rare and is worth about .50¢.

    You're telling us? We get about a dozen threads a week of newbies asking if they have a 1982 D Small date copper. First thing I noticed was that there was no mint mark in that Cent. That person is an idiot.

    From Numismatic News: QUOTE:

    Rare 1982-D Small Date copper found
    Posted on December 23, 2016 by Ken Potter
    Newly found 1982-D Small date copper cent.

    After 34 years, a 1982-D Small Date cent struck on a 95-percent copper-alloy planchet has finally been found and confirmed by me. A Minnesota collector who wishes to remain anonymous discovered it while sorting through 1982 cents by weight to save the copper-alloy pieces for their melt value.....

    In checking with error specialist Fred Weinberg of Encino, Calif., who does the error coin attributions for the Professional Coin Grading Service, I learned that he has never heard of one of these. He noted that there copper planchets known for a few 1983 cents (of which I had reported upon here in Numismatic News for both Denver and Philadelphia in the past. My book “Strike It Rich With Pocket Change” was responsible for the discovery of the 1983-D and several of the 1983 cents). There are also reports of three known certified 1989-D cents and one 1990-D struck on 3.1 gram copper-alloy planchets. And yes, after working in a stamping operation for over 25 years I am firmly convinced that wayward planchets can get lost in a plant for years before being uncovered and worked their way back into production channels. --- end quotes ---

    Sadly many of them don't read our threads to understand and know the difference. Hopefully someone will.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    I love the old threads that give a thorough explanation of why a coin is PMD, then a couple years later, somebody posts "I have a coin just like that". Didn't they read the thread? :banghead:

    Ha.. It happens many times. And the answer no. They definitely don't read the explanations. Crazy.
