    Use this image from PCGS to help determine if it is a large or small date-

    Then use the PCGS CoinFacts site for this issue as a small date to see what it might be worth if it were already certified in a PCGS holder at the specific grade you believe the coin is. Note that there are different pages for different color designations-

    You correctly identified a copper small date 1982.

    While that’s a small date example, hopefully, you already knew that the only valuable one from that year is the 1982-D (bronze) small date.

    Hope springs eternal, Mark. ;)

    You are correct in stating it is a Small Date but it is only worth 1 cent so
    might as well spend it unless you need it for a set.
    Also “very good” is one of the lower grades for a coin.

    Just a FYI- 1982 small date CU have been estimated to have one of the lowest mintages of Lincoln Memorials at 450 million from the total 10 billion reported made from the combined 3 mints P, W ,S.
    yet- the value is still 1 cent
