Agree, not a Close AM. Appears to be split plating on the mint mark, along with traces of Die Deterioration.

Re-punched date would be= RPD, double mint mark would be= RPM, over mint mark would be= OMM.

This is a Wide AM no doubt. One of the other key visual markers for Close AM is to look at the position of the A in STATES. A CAM will show the right leg of the letter A noticeable closer to the post of the letter T directly to its right. There will be a smaller gap between the A and the T in this area. With that said, this means there will be a larger gap between the left leg of the A and the post of the letter T directly to its left. A WAM, which you have, the letter A is directly and proportionally positioned between the two T's. Kinda like this visual CAM= T AT WAM= TAT

Bigwho808, for prices please ask here the others. Me I am collector from the point of view of collector. For investing I buy and deal only in specific places. For hobby I just pay what ask because I want to have. Example: few days ago I give to one seller 50 bucks for a blue book penny worth 3$. Was miss me for more then 2 years and I want to complete. maybe this summer I will start to sell some, then I will go to up-grade my self on market price. Till that moment excuses me I can not pronounce on the market price's.

Who answer to your topic (others then me) they know better, and they are honest on this issues.

All my best
Silvio

This coin has the " Wide AM" reverse. This is is the typical reverse for 1992 cents, so it's worth only face value.

Here's a good list of the different reverse design varieties and which ones are rare: http://www.varietyvista.com/01b%20L...arieties.htm

Silvio's error-ref link is unrelated to the 1992 design varieties. The extremely rare 1992 " Close AM"s are cents struck with a reverse design intended for use the following year (1993). Nothing to do with proof coinage.

Silviosi, with all due respect, your link is misleading for Bigwho and it is referring to the 1998 S and the 1999 S PROOFS which are an entirely different ballgame. Bigwho's coin is not a proof, it is not either of these dates, it is a 1992 D, and it is a normal Denver minted business strike with normal spacing of the AM. Bigwho808, I can 100% assure you your coin is a normal 1992 D business strike with the normal Wide AM. I have collected and found numerous WAM's over the years and have been looking for a 1992 CAM most of my life but have yet to find one. Please give it the 'Boy Scout effort' and do some online research regarding the different close and Wide AM's. Believe me, I would be ecstatic if this was a 1992 CAM but it simply isn't.

Your coin is NOT a Close AM, it IS a Wide AM.

Another characteristic that is used to differentiate these rare coins from others of the same year is the distance of the reverse designers initials, FG, from the right side of the memorial. On Close AM cents the initials are farther away from the memorial than on the Wide AM cents. Also, there is a horizontal serif on the end of the straight vertical part of the G on the Wide AM cents.


Your coin is a normal Wide AM coin and just a spender!
