Coins | Alexyo?

I am trying to get all the business strikes of the 1982 pennies. I have got: 1 Zinc D Small Date, and 5 Copper D Large Dates.

It can be done from circulation but it will take some time. Good luck.

Interesting topic. Coin Week has an article about them online at http://www.coinweek.com/education/coin-analyst-1982-lincoln-cent-provides-collectors-challenges-rewards Here's a quote from that article: The metallic composition and obverse master hub changes ultimately led to the creation of seven different types of 1982 business-strike Lincoln cents, including: 1982 brass large date 1982 brass small date 1982 zinc large date 1982 zinc small date 1982-D brass large date 1982-D zinc large date 1982-D zinc small date Add in the 1982-S proof Lincoln cent, which was struck in brass and boasts a large date motif, and the coin collector has eight basic 1982 Lincoln cents to chase after."
