There are mis-strikes on every coin denomination for every year ever made. Some are popular and valuable, others are not. There are no widely known popular or valuable errors specific to the 1982 cent. There could be minting errors, such as off-center, unfinished planchet, out-of-collar, brockage, stike-through, machine doubling, etc. -- but these errors could happen on any coin from any year. Check out the CONECA website for more info about error coins :

Probably the 1982 penny if it's a copper version.

a 1982 Canadian penny is worth $1.00 in the U.S.

This coin needs to be seen for an accurate assessment, their are many different factors in the minting process that could cause this and no known wrong digit errors exist for this coin. Show the coin to as many dealers or collectors as you can for their opinions.

Well that would depend on the type of misprint. There are "True" misprints and common misprints. Common misprints are things such as grammar mistakes and spacing mistakes. "True" misprints are cards that were mass produced with a mistake. On the Yu Gi Oh wikia there is a list of "True" misprints. However misprints are only 'worth' as much as people are willing to pay, and you'd need to find a person who values the misprint more than a regular version.

This goes for all pennies, the blank penny was created in Philedelphia and the penny with the D was created in Denver. If you want to know the material or type you should see "how do you tell the difference between 1982 pennies?"

If by formula you mean composition, a post-1982 penny is 97.5% Zinc and 2.5% Copper by mass.

The current penny (1982-present) weighs 2.5 grams. Before 1982 it weighed 3.1 grams.

1972 has no significance in terms of changes in penny densities. The US Mint did not change the composition of its penny between 1909 to 1982, so any pennies from within this time period would have the same density. Pennies from this time period all contained the same proportions of metals (95% copper, 5% zinc.) Coins from post-switch 1982 to present day are minted of 97.5% zinc and 2.5% copper. Copper's density is ~8.9g/cm3 while zinc's density is ~7.1g/cm3. Considering the relative compositions of each version of the penny, the post-1982 penny would be the less dense penny, and the pre-1982 penny would be the more dense of the two.

Alchemy is the only way to turn a penny into silver. But post-1982 cents are zinc coated with a thin layer of copper and it is possible to remove it chemically which gives a silvery appearance. However, such a penny is NOT silver, is NOT worth any more than 1 cent.

Please post a new, separate question with more details. There are several different types of misprints that can occur, and each has a different value.

The Lincoln, Wheat Ears Reverse penny weighs 3.11 grams. The Lincoln, Memorial Reverse penny (1959 to 1982) weighs 3.11 grams. The Lincoln, Memorial Reverse penny (1982 to present) weighs 2.5 grams. So it would all depend on which year the penny was minted.

In 1982 the mint struck pennies from solid bronze and from copper-plated zinc. Bronze cents weigh 3.1 grams and the zinc once weigh 2.5 grams. Bronze pennies were discontinued in mid-1982

Actually, the penny went from 95% copper before 1982 to 0.8% Copper after 1982. The newer coins are less valuable because they are essentially copper plated zinc coins. This saved the government some money in minting coins.

A Penny saved is a penny earned, as you would not have it any other way

The last year for copper US pennies was 1982.

2.5 grams from 1982 to date
