    My friend got me interested in error coins and am just wondering ig If this is an double die, misalignment. I think this 1982 date is large. And the glowing Lincoln in pillars looks cool but. Yes any input to see if this was an error. Thank you also I don’t know the weight of the cent but I’ll have access to a digital scale later. Also I noticed LIBERTY is closer to Lincoln than other coins I‘be seen that are similar

    All I see is a slight MAD, a misaligned die. That is why LIBERTY is closer to Lincoln. Look at the rim. It's very common. Welcome to CT.

    The correct terminology is Doubled Die. Looks to be just die deterioration doubling. Not a true Doubled Die variety.

    Misaligned Die Stike - yes.. Nothing major

    Yes to Large date. Normal Philadelphia minted (no mint mark)

    Glowing Lincoln has nothing to do with mint errors

    My friend offers $4.25 in random change he’s already went through. Should I trade him or hold on to coin for awhile. And thank you for welcoming me all. I appreciate the answers etc

    Yes, trade it off while the iron is hot.

    If my friend traded me that kind of money for a coin that's worth one cent I be looking for new friends.
