Unless it weighs 3.11 g, it is worth a couple of cents.

If it's a zinc core Lincoln, I'd say it's worth one cent.

A bit more explanation...

The scarce and valuable versions of the 1982-D Lincoln Cent are those struck on the traditional bronze planchet (i.e., 95% copper, 5% zinc - in use from 1962). The 1982-D cents struck on the 97.6% zinc and 2.4% copper planchets (i.e., the copper-plated zinc cents), are common and do not carry a numismatic premium.

The best way to tell what you have, as others have mentioned, is to weigh the coin. A true bronze cent weighs 3.11 grams while the copper-plated cents are lighter, weighing just 2.5 grams.

Hope that helps! Good luck!

The pictures are very grainy but the coin appears to be circulated. Worth 1 cent.

1 cent unless it is made of copper.

1982 was an interesting transitional year for the Lincoln cent due to rising copper prices. Of the seven different compositions, only the 1982 d small date was struck exclusively of the new 99.2% zinc plated. Although extremely rare varieties exist.
