Philadelphia '82 (large date).  It's a nice looking penny but unless it's graded as MS65 it's really only a penny.

Two methods, three solutions.
  • Grade them yourself. Compare what you think with what others think until you are happy.
  • Ask other collectors for their opinion.
  • Shrug. You don't need a grade unless you want to sell at a distance and you don't want to take a picture. You probably can make a picture and Greg' remark means you can't sell it.

It is difficult to grade a coin from an image but in this case it is safe to say it isn't MS-65
or any other MS grade. Nice coin but it is worth a cent.

1982 Phili mint produced two date sizes, large and small (based on the 9 in the date).  Large is more common than the small but even an MS small is only around $7.00.  Still a good penny for the collection, though.
