In 1982 they changed the composition of the Lincoln Cent. They went from being mostly copper weighing 3.1 grams to mostly Zinc weighing at 2.5 grams. So to make a long story short, the 1982 LMCs have 2 different weights depending on when they were minted...before or after the composition change over.
Your coin is a 1982 P small date copper LMC. It is well circulated and worth 1 Cent imo. It would make a good hole filler for a 1982 P copper Sm date hole in an LMC book.
In a nutshell!
Check out this link for some great info on the 1982 Lincoln cents.
Why? Is it because she posted a second coin or is it because she's wearing a helmet?
A Yes or a No.
Please excuse my Blonde moments but isnt this why CoinTalk exist? To educate fellow hobbyiest??
No..... We are here to talk about arthritis remedies and the “good old days”...... No, in all seriousness we do love to help budding numismatists. It presents a challenge to see a common cent on a scale and all we have to go on is, “What’s this worth?”..... What in your mind gives the coin value beyond the value stated on the coin? Are you seeing something that we aren’t seeing perhaps? Or did you watch a YouTube video that told you a 1982 cent was valuable? Give us a clue what’s in your mind and we can help you.
YouTube videos and other articles on this subject. But when your as Green as they come like me its incredibly easy to get confused. So thats why I asked. When in doubt, just ask. None of my friends are into coins like me so I dont know or have a knowledgable human to ask. I dont even have a fb or Insta to post and ask on their either Lol. But I have a cointalk account to help me learn
Well dear... You are absolutely in the right place to learn! Most of us don’t know what FB’s or Insta’s are! But by golly we can tell you plenty about coins. You are in the right place. And I’ll be the first to warn you that YouTube is a wealth of very misleading information. Stay away from them and stick around here.
Thats why I had to ask! Lol
To get Facts. Thats it.
@Randy Abercrombie im sure you know what Facebook is and Instagram too
I know what Facebook is. That’s about all. And I’ll say this. We had a young lady show up a little more that a year ago. I’ll tag her @Shrews1994 so she will know I’m talking about her. She was as green as anyone when she came on board but she knew she loved coins. She stuck around and tolerated us old curmudgeons with our dry humor and soaked up all she could learn. She is now one of the sharpest people here and has built a remarkable coin collection in that time and has become an avid metal detectorist as well..... I do hope you stick around and become another Shrews. Lord knows, us old guys aren’t much fun to be around.... Whew, is it 8pm already? Yawn..
Hahahaha sounds like its past MY bedtime
AND who says being “Old” isnt any fun???? I beg to differ....
