First of all I would check your scales for accuracy. Being a zincoin, it should weigh about 2.5g.
It could be a combination of a thick planchet and / or your scales are inaccurate.
Also please provide a photo of the reverse, this should be done with any posting.

Interesting. Could we see a photo of the reverse? Thanks. Is the scale you're using accurate to two decimal places?

My apologies for not sending a reverse image the fist time. I am going to go get it weighed at the bank tomorrow.

Depending on scale accuracy, this could be an amazing find. Does it have the distinctive high-pitched copper ring when you drop it? Do you see any zinc bubbles on the surface? (I didn't see any on the pictures, but a picture is different from actually looking at the coin in hand.) 1982-D small date cents are supposed to be zinc, but there have been a few discovered examples of copper ones struck in error.

The photo of the reverse shows zinc peeking through the Memorial.
Just a regular zincoin that may be a bit overweight.
Value one cent.

Agree the reverse photo shows zinc at the wear points. This is an expected zinc cent - value is one cent.
Take a look at my other hobby ... http://www.jk-dk.art
Too many hobbies .... too much work .... not enough time.

That's what I get with eyes that must not be as good as I'd thought...

Better scale is needed, or you have a slightly overweight cent. Definitely zinc.

ça va bien aller
