1982 large date with errors

As with the other cents, the rough surface is plating bubbles. What that line is going across the face of the coin I don't know as the pictures aren't clear enough; it would not add value to the coin.

Just some advice in your search for errors. Everything you have listed so far can be attributed to damage of one sort or the other. It is only an error if it happens during the striking of the coin. Anything that happens after that is considered damage.

If there  are scratches, dings, stains, distorted letters, bubbles, extensive wear etc. on a coin, these are all damage. If you want to learn what real errors are, go to a website such as error-ref.com. 

It is very hard to find an actual error in everyday pocket change as there are probably thousands of people looking for them so knowing what a true error should help you distinguish between damage and an error.
