Hello. I am new to coin collecting so please forgive me in advance if I make any mistakes while trying to describe my penny. While looking at some pocket change, I found what I believe is a 1982 latge date zinc penny that appears to be doubled die. I believe it to be a large date due to the straightness of the middle diagonal line of the 2. I believe it is a copper coated zinc penny due to it's weight of 2.5 grams. Hopefully my photos are clear enough to allow for identification. Thank you in advance for any help! Coin collecting is so fun yet time consuming. Any possible errors I find I try to compare to wexlers or varietyvista. I wish there was one official list with all known errors and varieties.....having only one list to go thru would definitely cut back on time spent doing research on possible errors or varieties. Is this wishful thinking on my part or is there such a list in existence and I just don't know about it?

Kindly post pictures of the obverse (front/head) and reverse (back/tail) of your coin for the experts to make assessments of your coin. Too, try to post pictures with the date positioned at 6'oclock... thanks...

Sorry about the photos...it's difficult for me to crop the image where it includes the desired portions of the original picture. I'm using a homemade macroscope as well.

@sosicoin: Thank you for your reply and instructions. I'm not quite sure if I understand the part about having "the date positioned at 6'oclock" but I will do my best to post a picture as you instructed to the best of my understanding. Thanks again!

Machine Doubling on the 2 of the date. Not a Doubled Die Obverse.

You are correct, what you have is a 82 large date zinc cent with Machine Doubling.
Among the 1982 cents, the small date 82-D cooper is what to look for... that's a lottery ticket! Only a few are known to exist, but they were find in the wild, so more may be out there!

@Errers and Varietys: Thank you for your reply!
@merclover: Your very detailed reply is much appreciated! I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't a doubled die but your reply helped me realize that although I got the doubled part wrong, I at least got the easier to identify large date and the zinc parts correct. Now I just need to go back and study what doubled dies truly look like. Thank you!

Welcome to the forum, NEF. It takes time to learn to recognize the different ways doubled dies can look. Machine Doubling and Die Deterioration Doubling are hard to discern from doubled dies at first, but keep practicing and it becomes easier. Also, please feel free to ask more questions. I've learned a lot here and I'm sure you will too if you stick around.
