    That's cool Jim, I didn't think about asking the weight of it - how do you tell copper (and not copper plated zinc) from just looking other than this coin has no zinc showing through where hits are, no sign of split plate doubling and no plating blisters or disturbance? Guess design helps, like the FG and the AM.

    The best I can say is the design then the lack of any bubbles. blisters and splits... Also most of the solid 82s I have seen are well struck and the rev on this one looks that way... Hope that helps a bit!!!

    Added - I may be way off on this ones year... I looked back thru VVs RDVs and by the look of the FG it appears to be a RDV-006???
