After nearly four months of readers searching, a second example of a major 1982 doubled die reverse cent has finally been uncovered. Numismatic News reader Jim Proctor of Vermont reported it. It bears the small date obverse and is struck on a pure copper-plated zinc core planchet - as was the original find.

The doubling of the Seated Lincoln in the center of the Memorial building is quite prominent!
A die break under the left side of the upper bar of the T is a marker for this stage of the variety.
Many die scratches cover the obverse with some of the more prominent shown in from of the lips of Lincoln.
