Welcome to the forum.

I am sorry to hear of your grandmother's passing. I hope you have fond memories of her, and it is nice that she left you something by which to remember her. 

Now for the answer to your question: all of your cents are large date cents. The difference is slight, but, with experience, it is easily recognized by the style of the "2," and the distance from its base to the rim, along with several other tells.

Thank you very much.I have a few more questions if that's ok there is some silver Penny's that are from 1943 I've researched some  and know that if it was 1944 I would be a happy girl but are the 1943 still worth anything? And what about double strike or whatever it's called I think I see it on a few of the 1982 and a few others are all error pennies worth more then 1 cent I have so many different dates so I'm slowly going thru them but I am not knowledgeable about this kind of stuff. My grandma would be so happy looking down if I could sell or auction even one off for a nice price. She collected antiques or what she thought to be antiques lol. So I'm sure I'll have a few more questions if that's ok . I have never been on a forum like this so I appreciate you help

The 1943 Lincolns are actually zinccoated steel, rather than silver. They are interesting, and a fun collectible, but not really very valuable.

As far as doubling on your coins, I would suggest that you start by taking a look at this article, provided by our hosts:
