In 1982 there were still Copper Cents being struck.
Sometime in 1982 they were switched to the new Copper Plated Zinc Planchets.
Actually.. There is. The Copper Plating. Even though very thin it is still Copper.
That is correct. Mild confusion. Thank you.
That is correct. Moderate confusion. Thank you.
P.S., please, no more corrections. I cannot afford to enter the realm of Severe confusion.
It has to be done so newbies into collecting will not themselves enter the realm of confusion.
Your cent is 59 years old, but they were saved in large quantities back in the day. Therefore it is only worth its face value, although the copper in it might be worth a little more.
I was a young collector in 1961. A 59 year old coin at that time would have been a 1902 Indian cent, which would have been a nice find. Those were not saved in huge quantities, like the 1961 cents.
