What year is this cent?

First guess was a die crack, but I can see "bubbling" in the area which may be clad damage. If it's not clad damage, then metal "dust" has damaged the die.

While it's possible the zinc planchet had a minor surface flaw or slight crack, it's still an area where the copper plating failed to adhere to the zinc surface. So during the strike this caused the gas trapped under the "loose" plating to expand and created a bubble.

The coin happen in many shapes and sizes so what it looks like has little to do with what it actually is.

Okay, I'm calling your bluff.
If it is post-1982, I fully agree with you Daniel.

But, if this is pre-1982, would you have the same story? I think you have to know the year unless you simply "know" it's a zinc coin. I think there is enough bubbles on the surface to maybe make that call, but I still need the year.

You're broaching on the inappropriate with this comment. It's obviously a copper clad zin planchet or the area in question wouldn't look like a bubbled planchet. I don't need to know the exact date since it has to be 1982 or sooner, and can be narrowed down from before 92 considering the wide AM.

So the coin is likely 82-92, and I will go with an 80's date since the lettering appears to thinner than on the 90's reverses.

I don't bluff with my answers and I don't tell stories. Even you think the coin must be post 82' so I wonder what your true meaning is by replying to me like this.

Sorry, it wasn't meant as disrespect. I was badly pointing out that you have enough experience to tell that it is a 1982, or later. But, other than the bubbling clad, I wasn't sure what you were seeing.

I'll watch my comments.
