I have a 1982 penny with a large die break I guess covering in god completely. I'm trying to find more information and wondering if I should send it to PCGS for grading etc. I can't upload the image here because I don't have one of those fancy cameras. I could really use some help figuring this penny out. Thanks anyone for commenting and helping.

Looks like a cud however you need to post good cropped and close up photos of the entire coin, obverse and reverse, for more assistance. See the image tutorial.

Thanks and I will. I'm going to order one of those usb microscopes and post new pictures. All I have to use now is an iPhone. I attempted to upload a photo from it but it says the image is too large. Plus the quality is bad. I'll order one and post new pictures ASAP. Thanks for your time and response.

Several others here talk about using their iPhone for photos but I've yet to try. I suppose it would work depending on the type of photo you're trying to produce. Size can be adjusted via the tool here. It just takes some practice, trial and error.

Good luck,

I'm not watching your youtube video. LOL
Just kidding, I'll give you the views.

I can't see it well in the video. HOWEVER, I can see it well enough to know it's a 1982 CUD without a doubt.

Check http://cuds-on-coins.com/lincoln-cent-cuds-1982/

CU-1c-1982-21(LD)(Cu)
CU-1c-1982-37(LD)(Cu)
CU-1c-1982-41(SD)(Cu) (i think likely this one but need closer pictures to confirm, or you can confirm it)
CU-1c-1982-52 (zinc I think)

maybe one of these above.


Absolutely NOT on sending it for grading, it's only worth a couple bucks to begin with as it stands, grading would just be throwing money away, or in essence any money you would have made would have went to grading fees.

Positively identfying the cud goes a long way to it being legit to a prospective buyer.
you'd want to verify by weight if it's copper or zinc, large date or small date since it's 1982, obverse and reverse picture, and if you can match it to any of the know cuds.

your coin isn't a small cud, it's not the biggest, but it's not the smallest and a nice example.
Probably worth $15-$50 depending on how you sold it and when, but if you sent it for grading, you'd likely lose money on it, between the fee and shipping.

and something like this really doesn't need to be graded if you've done your homework on it. it's clear to anyone that's interested what it is.

Lol thanks for the reply's. My new usb microscope should be in tomorrow so I can post better pictures. I have quite a few coins to post here. Thanks for the save on sending it off though. I've been collecting for years but never really found anything. You guys are good people. I'll be posting many more things coming soon.
