In 1982 the US mint decided to switch from bronze to copper-plated zinc and throughout the year both types were minted, but the first zinc coins weren't struck until October that year, which is why they are more scarce than the bronze coins. Furthermore the coin underwent a design change to the date replacing a larger 1982 with a smaller one. As you can imagine there were definitely some mix-ups, 8 combinations to specific. This one is a 1982 D large date copper plated zinc cent, so it is of the scarcer variety when it comes to composition but also bears the large date design of its bronze predecessor. there is a slight doubling on the obverse (not enough for me to label it doubled-die) and a re-punched mint mark (North West) to put icing on the cake.
