    I was going through a jar or 1982s tonight and had forgotten how pretty some of them were! I think last time I looked at these was quite a while ago and I was only looking for a possible small date copper and nothing else. This one looks pretty great though! 125F1376-1269-4FA3-AF2C-CA8D73189A41.jpeg D58A9D2C-051E-45BD-982A-F51CF1ED4035.jpeg

    Not sure I don’t have a scale. 3.11g would make it a copper right? Is that rare on an 82-D small date? I thought only on a 82 philly small date?

    The 1982 D Small Date Memorial Cent is only worth one cent unless it is struck on a copper (bronze) planchet that weighs at least 3.0 grams. Only two have been found struck on a 3.07 planchet, so they’re extremely rare, one sold for over $10,000 and the first discovery sold for $18,000.

    That looks like a Copper Plated zinc planchet..
    That isn't the rare copper variety.

    No need to weigh it. But you should own a gram scale anyway.

    It’s a nice one. Put it in a 2x2 so it doesn’t get damaged.

    Nice looking '82 zinc Cent. A keeper for sure. Struck from a worn die though.
