There are no U.S. pennies from 1882 with a mintmark -- they were all minted at the main mint in Philadelphia. If you are referring to the "L" on the ribbon at the back of the Indian's head, this is the designer's (James Longacre) initial and appears on all Indian head cents after 1864. If it's something else, then it was manually added after the coin left the mint and will drastically reduce the coin's collector value. In circulated conditiion, an 1882 Indian head cent is worth $2-$3

1982 was the last year for 95%-copper pennies. And the first year for the zinc pennies. They made both types that year, and the only way to tell them apart is by weight -- the zinc pennies are lighter.Answer100% copper pennies were last minted by the US in 1857. These were large cents, about the size of the "golden" dollar coins. The Flying Eagle and Indian Cents from 1856 to 1864 were 88% copper and 12% nickel.
