I've tried my best to to explain that 1982 was a transitional year of the Copper and Copper/Zinc Lincoln Cent coins, and both the 3.11 grams copper and 2.5 Copper/zinc are quite common and are not any sort of an error. I have provided screenshots and other online links of information about the 1982 transitional Lincoln Cent, and I received a message reply...."You are verifying what I said is true! What you showed me is exactly what I put in the description!" Can I get some others to possibly help out before someone unknowingly makes a very bad purchase that may be intended as a gift for a collector. See the photos of the coin and description. Link is below the photos.

Not being able to read the scale should be a red flag to buyers.Also looks like a large date,when it is the small date copper that is rare. Buyer beware.

It's clearly a large date. Not even worth $1 until you get into >MS64. The description is wrong in many ways - it's not an error, not rare, and as you've told them already, there were many copper cents produced after 1981.

Agree with all above. Unfortunate that smoke and mirrors are so much a part of the '82 Memorial cent story.

The first-found 1982-D small date copper sold at auction in August 2017 for $18,800. If you see one for sale on an online site for less, don't trust/believe it.
