1982 d copper small date penny

9 posts in this topic

All small dates. 

Here is a pic from the Following link. 


Notice the differences in the shape of the 2 (easiest pick up point for me to see), size and top loop of the 8, and distance between the 2 and rim.  In 1982, Denver made over 6 BILLION (with a B) cents.  In 40 years, Only two 1982D small date coins have been found.  You have much better chances of winning the lotto than finding one.

Dumb mistake. Thanks for the correction

I can’t stand that “shape of the 2” diagnostic. The distance from the 2 to the edge is all I ever look at. It needs to be as wide as the 2 itself to be a small date. End of story. But that’s just me. I can’t stand drawing black lines on 1970-S small dates either.
