Roger------Several years ago Patsy & I found four of those larger pennies.-----They are 1982-P, 1989-P, 1992-D, & 1994-D.-----I even took them to a coin shop to a fellow that has years in the coin business & he couldn't give me an explanation for them.-----We ended up putting them in a small display case with a regular size penny alongside them for comparison (as a conversation piece).-----So yeah, there has to be an explanation as to why they "exist" but I don't know what it is.-----I don't do pictures but if Monte, Gregg (or anyone) cross paths with me, I'll be more than happy to show them.------You are the only one that I have ever seen make mention of these larger pennies.-----It's nice to know that I'm not "going nuts" after all!grinning smiley----They do actually exist.----------Del

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?
