We are proud to offer for sale this 1982 Large Date Copper Lincoln Memorial Penny Lincoln Cent Gem BU Red Penny.  This 1982 Large Date Copper Lincoln Memorial Penny is in Gem Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) RED condition, with great eye appeal and no major marks or visible problems.  This Lincoln Memorial Penny is taken from either an original BU roll or Mint Set.  This makes the 1982 Large Date Copper Lincoln Memorial Penny a great addition to any Lincoln Memorial Penny collection, and a great value.

The Lincoln Memorial Penny is comprised of .950 (95%) copper and .050 (5%) zinc with a diameter of 19mm and a mass of 3.1 grams.  The 1982 Large Date Copper Lincoln Memorial Penny features the same bust of Abraham Lincoln on the obverse that debuted on the 1909 Lincoln Wheat Penny designed by Victor David Brenner, and that continues today on the latest Lincoln Union Shield Pennies, making it the longest running design on a U.S. Coin.  

The reverse of the Lincoln Memorial Penny was prepared by Frank Gasparro, then Assistant Engraver at the Philadelphia Mint, selected from a group of 23 models that the engraving staff at the Mint had been asked to present for consideration.  The Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. provides the central motif for the coin, and the initials 'FG' appear to the right of the Memorial to honor Gasparro.  The design of the Memorial is detailed enough to view the statue of Lincoln in the Memorial, marking the first time a person was depicted on both the obverse and reverse of a U.S. Coin.  

The 1982 Large Date Copper Lincoln Memorial Penny Lincoln Cent Gem BU Red Penny is a beautiful coin, with original red coloring intact, perfect for any collector and a great value.
