Good information Mark. Has the 83' on 81' Canadian Cent stock been verified as such?

No,I am willing to keep America great by grabbing my heritage as a pioneer , Daniel.
But I can answer the question of how to verify if it is in fact 1983 1981. If someone made you close your eyes the turned them on their rims back to back, I don't think you could 100% identify the Canadian.They equally thick and round.
Even though the U.S version is 19 mm and the canadin is 19.05 mm, the only way that .05 mm could be attested to is with calipers not by eyeballing.
Now if you add either a 19mm shield or wheat penny and put it on either end, Ray Charles could seethe wheat or the shield as absolutely thinner than 1981 or 1983.
But to be 100% sure since our pennies which are copper 90% zinc 10%.
1981 needs a specific gravity because such a test will verify, it is Canadian 98%copper1.5% tin and .05 zinc.
Once that is done, do the 1983 and if its specific gravity is the same, it can't be an American planchet
It will have to be said it is a Canadian assisted planchet error
And since 1983 was a transitional year by virtue it will be a 98% copper coin it will also be a transitional error and then, it will no linger be pioneering.
It will just be another fascinating thing that can happenduring the minting process to coins, either naturally or man made.
So unless someone else verifiesthry are in possessionof a new discovery. I will have only one
Let the feeding frenzy begin.

Yes if you have a 1983d penny 3.11g you have transitional penny;it should weigh 2.5 g because its zinc.But let me re emphasize, whether or not a penny is found to weigh 3.11g from 1983 and beyond, it is still transitional if it weighs 3.11g
And I think they have found pennies weighing 3.11 in 1989,1990 and even somewhere around 1997.
I think its impossible to have copper planchets left over past 1983 and they are assisted by mint personal who throw in a few copper planchets but don't always retrieve them all.
Mints are extremely high security but people still manipulate the planchets or cause other errors with intention of stealing them.We can thank security that must have a perilous time trying to retrieve them.
But washington on the reverse of a Sacajawea dollar is highly unlikely but what about a proof 1970s quarter being struck onto a 1941 canadian quarter.
Impossible.
Make sure you weigh some wheats that you know for sure are 3.11g and the weigh a couple agield pennies which should weigh close to 2.5 g.
Re weigh your 1983d and bingo if its 3.11 g.
I think there have not been many 1983d's found, so yeah you probably will enjoy Christmas! Congratulations
