Found this a while ago while roll searching. Any help on grade and approximate values would be appreciated thanks.

It's gonna depend on how bad that spot is on the reverse. If it's corrosion, which is what it looks like from here, it's going to reduce the value a lot. If it's just gunk or debris, it won't be so bad. Your best bet would be to search completed listings on eBay and see what ones in similar condition have gone for.

It is the wide A M. But it not a proof reverse. These were business strike dies with the Wide A M on them. If it were a proof die, then the devices would be very brilliant. This I don't see on these coins.

Some have asked about my images I use and I'm glad to say, I've completed an Educational DVD of these. Become a supporter of this site, send me your address and I will send you a DVD. Many have loved this so far. I just completed version 11. The most updated version yet. So if you haven't got a copy yet, it is a good time to do so. I also have a DVD and one for windows media player. The one for media player is nice for your computer as it is clearer in images. Let me know which you would prefer. If you are a new member and wish the DVD, make your donation and have them pass on to me where you would like this shipped. Most have really appreciated this to increase the coin knowledge. Thanks for your support!

A number of references describe these as proof-style reverses, and the proofs for these dates to have the wide AM. They may not be proof dies, but wouldn't they have to be dies made from hubs intended for proof dies?

Not struck on a proof planchet or with the force of a proof...but still a proof die....?
Stay brown and hail the Boognish.

I think Amida17 is right--or at least certainly not minted in the Proof process, but the die was hubbed from the same Proof hub.

Like housing the value is dropping with more examples being found.

The dies don't show the proof finish on them Just business strike dies.

I sure am glad I have found one of these. It is one of the few coins, in my opinion, that can still be found in the wild and will become a significanly desired variety in the future. I expect the 1999 WAM to become a major key to any cent collection in the future. I wouldn't sell mine anytime in the next decade.
