Almost all 1983 Lincoln Cents, except for a handful, are copper plated zinc planchets and usually when you see gray or "silver" it is the zinc showing through either from a split in the plating or a plating issue, or someone damaged the coin.

The 90% copper planchets must weigh 3.11 grams, so if you coins don't weigh that then they're normal copper plated cents.
