Second 1982-D Small Date Copper Alloy Lincoln cent discovered. A second 1982-D Small Date homogenous copper alloy Lincoln cent has been discovered. Like the original discovery coin this latest find is also graded AU-58. According to the PCGS label it weighs 3.07 grams – close enough to be within a reasonable tolerance.May 2, 2019

i am not a coin collector but i am confused because half say its the 3.1 gram penny thats rare the other half say its the 2.5 . i went to a coin shop and the owner told me its not worth getting graded and didnt offer me anything for it. then another shop told me he would give me 20$ for it as is but not worth grading. where can i find a honest coin grading place

Your cent is a 1982D small date variety copper-plated zinc cent (weighing in at 2.5g).  These cents are quite common.  The key variety is the 1982 small date copper-plated zinc cent which is worth about twice as much in choice uncirculated grades.  A true rarity for these varieties would be a 1982D small date copper alloy cent weighing in at 3.11g, which yours is unfortunately not.
