I searched a roll and found a few pennies I like. I have a question about the 1982 d small date cent. If I don't have a scale does it show to be copper.

You can make a scale, with a pencil and a popsicle stick.

If you could take a closeup pic of the left side of the steps of the memorial on the reverse. I think I see where zinc is showing through. I also think I see zinc rot bubbles in the columns.

Plus also - is that a BIE error die chip or a zinc bubble between the B & E?

The overall appearance leads me to believe it is a Zincoln.

A scale on the bay does not cost all that much,and if you plan on staying in this hobby you will need one.

Yes I will get a scale. I did the popsicle stick scale several times. I think it is sink also. All comments are much appreciated. I learn from them. Also reading other posts help a lot. Looking closer I see what you Are seeing.

I wouldn't buy a scale just for this particular cent. I am almost sure it's zinc. You can do asic inch drop test and a hard surface. Simply drop the cent and tell us what you hear.

I did a drop test with a known copper and then the 1982 d. I dropped them on wood and on tile. I dropped them on the face and then on the edge. Maybe there was a slight difference possibly less resonance. I couldn't tell a lot of difference. I am thinking it is zinc. I probably get a scale. I may need it again later.
