    @Sandysilva123... Welcome aboard. Your cent looks normal - very good pictures. What do you see that makes you question it? Cheers, RickO

  • Ok I'm sorry to keep on asking but here I'm sending you. 2 cents 1982. Now it may be normal but what I see. Is the edge of the coin is way popped up. Or bumped up. The letters are too. And on the letter d it has what it looks like another d or a 0 just draw. Deep right before the D could someone tell me if I'm seeing right or is supposed to look like that and the num.2

  • That is my last question. Please if anyone could correct me please

    @Sandysilva123 ... Good pictures. What you have - on the 2 and beside the D - is Post Mint Damage (PMD) and brings no numismatic premium. Cheers, RickO

    The mark in front of the D is corrosion. Your coin is a 82-D large date, probably the copper plated zinc type (you can tell by weight 2.50 gms for zinc, 3.11 gms for copper). If the plating is breached, the underlying zinc can start to corrode and look like your coin

    Other than a lot of circulation contact marks, I don't see anything unusual
