Hello friends, just wondering about a 1982 penny, weight is 3.08g. It shows 3.08 when in the middle of the scale but I couldn't upload the pic so moved it to the bottom to make it smaller.Should I get it graded? Thank you

No to getting it graded, it's an AU coin.

Normal cent at its normal weight. Not worth grading. The big one for 1982 is the 1982 D small date copper.

Your coin is a normal copper cent from 1982. Very common. It is worth 1 cent, or ~1.8 cents if you calculate the copper melt value.
It is normal to find 1982 cents in both copper and zinc compositions. 3.08 grams is within tolerance for a copper which should be 3.1 grams.

That is a small date but not a Denver mint. You can study the date though.

I think there are 7 types in 1982. Good luck and have fun.
