    found in change today

    Terrific finds Colin. These days I rarely spend cash. 1. I don’t do much that is not part of my regular ministry routine. 2) when I shop, I often have ordered ahead and paid by card, 3) my grocery shopping is usually paid for via debit card or credit card (I get a bonus for each purchase). I usually buy coffee in the mornings and pay for that with cash. Even when I shop at the local hospice thrift store, I pay with a card as I get an extra 3% rebate on my purchase. Maybe I need to use more cash too. I do think that my experience is fairly common these days.

    The truth about the 1982 cent please

    Thank you, I don't suppose any of these three are small date, when you wish they were they start looking like they are even though I know they aren't...

    The truth about the 1982 cent please

    Yes, the copper alloy cents 1982-D that weigh 3.11 grams (or thereabouts). There are plenty of 1982-D small date copper-plated zinc coins (2.5 grams), however.

    The truth about the 1982 cent please

    As I understand that they weren't supposed to mint the small dates at Denver but a few of them got made anyway and those are the valuable ones the Denver 3.1 small date

    The truth about the 1982 cent please

    So if I read that right if someone had a 1982 Small Date Denver it is the most valuable? The reason I ask is one of the videos I watched showed one in not mint state going for $1800,00 at auction but the more I understand the more confusing it is, not really but sort of, thanks though...

    The truth about the 1982 cent please

    In 1982, the U.S. Mint changed the composition of the one cent from a copper alloy weighing 3.11 grams to a copper-plated zinc, which weighs 2.5 grams. This, along with a variety in the fonts used for the date, resulted in seven known varieties for the 1982 U.S. Once Cent coin: Copper alloy (3.11 grams): 1982 large date, 1982 small date, 1982-D large date Copper-plated Zinc (2.5 grams): 1982 large date, 1982 small date, 1982-D large date, 1982-D small date Of these, the 1982 small date of each composition carry the higher premium. The copper-plated zinc variety carries the higher premium of the two. Relatively speaking, the premiums are rather small considering that a gem mint state coin (MS-65 grade) would value at between 50 cents and $1. Modern cents for the most part do not generally have a high value (especially in circulated conditions). That includes the 1982 large and small date cents, though the premiums stated before do climb considerably as the grade increases. However, this is true of both the 1982 and 1983 issues as there were no uncirculated Mint Sets issued by the U.S. Mint in these years. So, mint state coins of these years are a bit tougher to come by in high grade as opposed to other modern years that do have Mint Sets available. I hope you find this hobby and field of study to be enjoyable, relaxing and rewarding!
  20. hello thank you in advance for any help you give me I am trying to watch all these videos about the 82 pennies large date this small date that I have three that weighs 3.1 grams but believe they're all large date so do those have any value at all cuz it doesn't specify on either the videos they're all Denver mint that weighs 3.1 grams, if you read my ignorant this is only my second month dealing with coins...
  21. it's become quite a busy end of week here. Right off the top of my head I can't think of anything in the library to grab for you real quick. A lot of stuff has been internet interaction over the decades (it's sad how much has literally fallen of the net...not necessarily related to this current topic, but some interesting stuff, nonetheless) so I'm not sure if I'll be able to pull some of it through search that quickly. But, the gist of it has to deal with the same concept as honing our chef's knives. The process of sharpening the knife actually removes metal from the blade. This process, however, is a lot more "crude" compared to the day to day use of the blade. More pressure, different materials, and the time consumed in the process are different between honing, day to day use, and sharpening. In day to day use, the knife eventually becomes dull. During this period, the knife is put under different circumstances in which there are variable amounts of pressure applied, but it is a general rubbing of the the blade against generally softer substances. Over a period of time, the metal begins to form/bend/flow in the direction of this applied pressure. Metal itself is not lost...it is simply "squished" thus dulling the blade. So, we therefore hone the knife. Applying short periods of light pressure in order to form the metal back into the "sharp" position again (realigning the edges). As with the day to day use, there is generally no loss of metal involved. It is when you sharpen the blade that you are intentionally removing metal in order to form a new edge to the blade. I suggest (as I have also seen others in the past) this is the same with normal "wear" to the metal of the coin. The metal is being "squished"/formed/flowed/moved....not removed. It is not until there is damage (whether intentional or not) that we experience the actual removal of the metal. This can occur through abrasive cleaning, whizzing, , a series of oxidation followed by removal or conservation (as was routinely done in the "good old days"), environmental damage, etc. Your insight in the matter is greatly appreciated!
