If you are looking for the transitional variety that is worth more than face value, that would be a 1982 D small date cent made of 95 percent copper and 5 percent zinc. The "D" shows that the cent was minted in Denver. Yours was minted in Philadelphia.

Agree 

The valuable one is a copper 1982D Small Date. Yours is a common 1982 Small Date no mm which means it was struck at the Philadelphia Mint.
