*** Edited by Staff to Add Year / Mintmark / Denomination to Title. Titles are Important! ***

Hello to All,
Its the new guy again with another off-the-wall question. A "friend of a friend" recommended that in addition to inspecting for visual surface errors, I should also consider weighing the pennies that I have collected (thrown into a penny jar) over the past two decades because the material composition has changed over the penny's lifetime. What I have discovered weight-wise is that there appears to be weight change between 1982 & 1983. The weight difference is somewhat small, 2.55 grams vs 3.11 grams.

I have attached photos of a 1982 D that weighs in at 3.11 grams, and it appears there is a Double Die Obverse present. I expected the penny to weigh 2.55 grams.

Before I dig into this further, I thought I'd share this info with you and I would certainly appreciate your kind comments.

In advance --> Have a Great Memorial Weekend to everyone!!

The weight is normal for your coin. It's the 1982 D Small Date Cent you need to be looking for that weights 3.2 grams.also, no Doubled Die Obverse etheir. A normal and spendable coin.

Don't see any doubling. In 1982, the Mint switched from 3.1g copper planchets to 2.5g copper-plated zinc planchets. They also used two different Obverse designs that year, one with a large date and one with a small date. Yours is a 1982-D Large Date Copper. The rare one is a 1982-D Small Date Copper.

The large dates are often confused a being doubled dies. It is when you see them side by side with a normal one and a doubled die, then you start to see the differences:

This will help. (Not a Denver DDO, but to give you an idea of how much the spread enlarges a doubled die)

All, I am a member to a handful of forums (not coin related) and allow me to comment that this one is the "best in class". Everyone has been so cordial and genuinely eager to help and provide feedback. I truly appreciate it!

Thanks to everyone!

That is the way we would like to be treated when we were new here, so we pass it on to new ones also. It is as the name of the forum indicates, a coin family. Welcome aboard.
