Pardon me if I remain skeptical.

I'm still skeptical, (I am VERY skeptical of the claim they have two of them)  but encouraged.  If the new pictures pan out then the next step will be for them to invest the money into having it slabbed.

Oh yay. Know why they all look the same? Guess. Because it’s 99.9999% certain they ARE all the same, all Large Date.

1982 was a transitional year so some were made from copper (3.11g) and others were produced from the new Copper Plated Zinc planchets (2.5g)

Maybe I should have been more specific but your right,  I was referring to the postings on coin forums but if none had been found, nobody would be looking for them. I do know that there have been at least two 1982D small dates discovered. I think the last one sold for about $18,800.

All of these are large dates.  I always look at the shape of the 2 and the distance of the 2 from the rim.  Pretty easy to differentiate that way.

As per the photos I posted earlier on how to tell the difference between Small and Large Dates, they are all Large Dates.

Can someone clarify for me the weights? All 1982 pennies are either 3.1g or 2.5g. What is the significance of the 3.07 weight of the 2 that have been verified? Also is it only D mint mark?

The tolerance for a copper CENT is + - .12g so 3.07 is well within spec.

It is the copper 1982D Small Date that is the valuable coin.

Yes the 1982small date copper without the d I've read can be worth $1,000 but the small date 1982 d copper is known for going for around $18,800

No, not normally. A 1982 small date copper with no mint mark is typically a 30 cent coin, in MS65 condition, not $1000.

If you were to find the 1982-D small date copper, it would likely be a six-figure coin. Only 2 are known so far.

 

I have literally a STACK of 1982 7 coin Lincoln cent sets, all in BU condition, that I got for less than a dollar each. They only are missing the "impossible" coin. You're more likely be hit by a solid gold meteorite.
