Could anyone please tell me if these 6 Lincoln pennies are errors or post strike damaged. This is what I think I'm seeing on each one and most have arrows to where on them I see it:
1982- doubling
1983- mint mark damage
1976- some type of pitting or bubbling
1977- Cud?
1986- off center
19?- the date wasn't fully struck
I have researched for several days but I don't have the experience and I have only just started this relationship with coins. Please lend me your expertise and how close or far off I am. Any and all info, advice is more than appreciated and thanks in advance!

1 - unclear

2 - looks like a grease-filled die issue

3 - unclear

4 - looks like an emerging Ridge Ring ( Die Deterioration)

5 - guessing this is zinc rot

6 - unknown post-mint environmental damage.

Best just to show one coin peer thread.

I agree with the frog on all counts (including the preference for having only one coin per thread). The only thing I would add is that the third cent (1977 D) has damage to the rim and is a spender.
