Hello everyone. I have another question if I may. I found this 2.8 gram 1983 penny and don't really know what to think about it. The picture of the three pennies together are as follows top 1982 copper, middle 1983 2.8 g, bottom 1983 zinc. I can't find any signs that it may be a zinc penny. All help appreciated.

Well it is a Zinc coin. and by the image of all 3 coins, the '83 2.8g coin in the middle looks thicker - this could be why it is a tiny bit heavier.

also, no copper cents were minted in '83, so the bottom two are zinc.
ça va bien aller
