More plunder from our field trip earlier today. As the label says, these are Lincoln cents from 1982. 1982 is a noteworthy year because they changed the mold, which the government does every once in awhile.
The interesting thing about these is the date marker. Click on the photos to see a larger image, and compare the 1982 across the pennies. Those marked "SM" below the coin have small date labels--look at the small size of the "82" compared to the "19" next to it. The pennies marked "LG," on the other hand, have large date labels--the "82" seems relatively larger compared to the "19," and all four numbers are just a tad bigger.
