1982 pennys
Hi I was wondering if there was a way to tell between the copper and zinc pennys of 1982 without chopping it in half.
Thanks. nhochrein.

there is! the copper ones weigh 3.1 grams while the zinc only 2.5g. the difference is enough to tell if you have sensitive fingers. also handy that a dime weighs exactly 2.5g too.

The color on a zinc cent is gold color more then a copper cent
