Yes to me it is a small date. 2.6 with the dirt it is normal. If you do not has in the collection keep. Is no value on those coins for this year if it is not MS 68 or more.

That's a large date, but really doesn't matter. Just worth face value large or small zinc.

I'm posting another picture!!!! Sorry.hope you all look please not saying I'm right at all?Take a look at the 2 closer at the end. It does have a tail on it maybe no one seen it in the picture and I didn't show the reverse etheir hope this helps but what my question is doesn't this tail make it a small date? And also the reverse of the coin the metal content is a give away because the bubbles there is something at the bottom the stairs maybe a scratch looks like a mouse or something to me lol also something going on with the Side of the stairs in the pillars idk maybe just my eyes but question is are we sure this isent a small date considering the tail on the 2 my question

Sorry your coin is a large date zinc cent. Here is a comparison of the 2 types.
Not mentioned in the image is the gap from the tail of the 2 to the rim. On a small date - there is a large gap, conversely, on a large date - there is a small gap.
Your coin has a small gap.

Yep, still a large date. they are really easy to tell apart once you get the hang of it. The shape of the 2 and the distance of the 2 from the rim are the first things I look at.

Didn't the mint use a large date die when they switched over to zinc? It didn't work so good so they had to make relief in die . I guess the zinc was so hard on the die and the cent didn't come out very well. This was all due to copper prices going up and having to switch over to zinc. I have been digging on this topic trying to gain more knowledge on this so I know what I'm looking for. I know some information can't be giving due to people trying to make counterfeit coins. That's very understandable I just keep running into riddles lol!!!! It's Copper, it's zinc, it's bronze, it brass, some things are just confusing lol but part of learning is seeking the knowledge to become deeper into the hobby... I'm not gonna lie I get thrown for a loop sometimes on what I read but honestly makes me dig deeper and gain my own understanding and then comming to a conclusion that states Facts.you wanna know you will search for the answer not just trust what someone says everything because you will most likely get scammed lol truth appreciate everyone I'm still doing research on this coin I have assumptions but I will lay the facts out tonite but think I have an idea !!!!'

Yeh now that I understand more I see it is a large cent. I had gotten better understanding on the small and large after I posted this when the couple replies got confusing. couple people saying small date then more people say large date I looked at some small and large so now I can see this then I had to go down the rabbit hole and research the history of 1982 coins and dig dig dig lol I'm newbie I have been fascinated with coins and history because I do know there is more meaning to a coin than just finding and having it for the rarity or selling it there is history behind every year so I really want to get into this hobby it's interesting. Any good pointers on websites just connected to history not on specifics just history of coinage In general I do search and read but just wondering if any good reads are worth looking into or place to start into this hobby
