Richard McPheeters is a coin dealer and collector in Claremore, and he is looking for a fairly rare penny to complete a set.

It’s a 1982 penny from the Denver Mint with a smaller than normal “1982” date stamp. 1982 was the last year pennies were actually made from copper.

Since then, they are zinc with copper plating. In 1982, there were 8 different versions of the penny minted. He has 7 and he’s looking for number 8.

For the correct penny, he will pay $10,000. It’ll have to be certified, but he’ll take care of getting that done if the penny shows up. So start looking. McPheeters can be reached at 918-923-7325.
