1982 small date copper penny!

#1 Unread post by GonzoOznog » Sun Jul 08, 2018 10:58 am

I happened upon this little gem last night. It's copper, it's a small date, and it's a 1982 d. Unless I'm missing something I believe this is a winner winner chicken dinner 😀

Hopefully this pic is a little easier to see. It's my understanding that there is only 1 other 1982 D small date copper that has ever been discovered.

It would be great if it is. What is the weight?
There appears to be a small pit (hole) in the rim under the bust which makes me think this is
a copper plated zinc.

Yeah, the weight is important. Would be nice if you did find one.
