its a normal common cent....
They minted over 17 billion cents in 1982.
This is one of them. There are 9 different kinds.
Philly large date copper
Philly large date zinc
Philly small date copper
Philly small date zinc
Denver large date copper
Denver large date zinc
Denver small date zinc
Denver small date copper (only 1 has been discovered)
San Francisco proof large date copper
Only 7 types were circulation issues.
Yes, 2.5 grams is Zinc, and 3.1 grams are the bronze or brass pieces of 1982 and earlier.
Mine is a 1982 no mint so Philly large date that weighs 2.5 g
I can't see the shape of the 2 on your coin. It is either small date zinc or large date zinc. (Philly)
I finally completed my 7 coin set (from circulation). Worth nothing. But it was fun. Philly small date zinc was the toughie. I'd like to get a blank 7 space penny holder to put it in.
I looked it up and it said a similar penny was sold in auction recently for $30,000 is that correct
1982-Denver small date copper. 1 exists.
Yours is from Philly.
Yours is zinc.
Yours is large date.
Here is a pic
What do u think bout this one
Your coin is worth a penny. Sorry.
The 1982's are very common. Unless it is brand spanking new, MS (mint state)
it's generally only going to be .01 cent no matter which one of the 7 it is.
Another 1982-D small date copper might turn up one day, but rest assured no one who has ever made a You Tube video has found one.
That is correct, but that was for a 1982 D small date cent struck in copper. The only similarity to your coin is that they are both dated 1982.
Ain't worth nuttin'
It's worth at least 7 cents !!
Well, but I'm not going to spend them. They are worth minus 7 cents.
Please consider taking this to heart....
If you want to search for something with odds similar to that of winning the powerball twice in a row, that's fine. There's a lot of people doing just that, especially since every other YouTube schmuck misleads them in order to get more clicks/subscribers, but you're going to have to learn to identify potential candidates for yourself.
Simply use the info others have already provided to learn how to identify large from small, and then set aside any 82-D smalls you locate that are not obliviously zinc. Buy yourself a cheap scale and weigh them. Easy peasy, but again, don't get your hopes up. Good luck!
Large date philly
