Unusual pennies

September 17, 2017 10:29PM avatar
I've found a couple of pennies lately that have me curious. Both have good detail but have plenty of patina. One is a 1918S that is obviously thinner than other pennies. The other is a 1982 no mint mark, that is larger than a regular penny. It is large enough I didn't think it was a penny until the dirt was cleaned off. According to the Internet it is zinc by weight, but it measures .790" instead of .748 like the average of several others I measured. You wouldn't think that difference would be so noticeable.

So my question, what is my next step with these two weird pennies?
