The 1982 D smalldate copper

Okay so I took this coin to 3 different coin shops and everyone of them say the same thing. That they believe it is a true 1982 D smalldate copper. So what do you think I should do here? Please no negative remarks I will not listen to them.

    Not to be negative, but where is the D mintmark?

    Q: When does a collector become a numismatist?



    A: The year they spend more on their library than their coin collection.



    A numismatist is judged more on the content of their library than the content of their cabinet.

    Sorry but it's not a D. ;)

    It’s a 1982, not a 1982-D. If it were the latter, the D would be easy to see, not Just imagined or wished for.

    You either need a new coin shop or better photos. [That's constructive, not negative. ] As others have said, I see no evidence of a D mintmark.

    If you truly think it is, there's really only one option: send it in. No one is going to pay a lot of money for a raw one that might details grade.

    You guys didn't read the OP's rules - no negative remarks.

    For some reason I don't think the OP is going to listen to us. ;)"Please no negative remarks I will not listen to them."

    I highlighted the area in question. You can clearly see the "D". There's also an extra "4" under the date. I'm thinking it could have been struck over a genuine 1984-D copper penny.

    We really should rename this the Pareidolia Forum.

    Nevermind, I'm such an idiot. This is clearly a 1932-D penny, which explains why it's copper.

    If I were the OP, I'd read the comments rather than listen to them. ;)

    Well they told us they weren't going to listen. ;)

    Maybe they will come back and post 35 more photos to convince us. ;)

    You asked what you should do here.
    I think your best choices are-
    Send it in for grading
    Sell it to one of the 3 shops you said you brought it to.
    I honestly do not see a D.

    I hope you don’t see a D because there’s not one.
    If there were, the shape, size and placement would be different from the random pattern that @simpsondanny46 wishes represented an actual D.

    You are going to be very disappointed with your grading results. :/

  • Eighteen63Eighteen63 Posts: 123 ✭✭✭✭

    Negative.

    On the contrary, Google is not your friend.

    What does "struck on something else" mean? How could it be a "weak D" or "struck on something else"? If it isn't a weak D, it would just be a normal P.
