I almost threw this in with a box of coomons I have by my desk because it seemed very obvious after looking at it through my loupe that is was just an average 2.5 gram copper plated since '82 small date because it's appearance seemed to be just that. But I almost always weigh everything so I did just
that. To my surprise it weighed 3.2 grams (On one of my cheaper scales). I tried bringing out the distinct color and bubbles of a zinc coin but my lighting is horrible. Even has the thud-like sound. It's like no other copper cent I have like it. Any thoughts?

With these pics,it looks like a normal 1982 SD copper.
( I'm no pro, it's just my humble opinion )

If it weighs 3.2g, then I can't think of anything else then it is a 1982 SD copper cent.
