*** Edited by Staff to remove YELLING. All capital letters is the internet version of yelling. Please don't do it in titles or posts. ***

My friend on Facebook posted a pic asking if this was a 1992 close am, and by the relief on the reverse, it has the relief of '93 aka the proof reverse.

AU details? I know the picture quality is bad, but I'm sure it's worth sending to PCGS to get graded.


Credit goes to Joe M. of Missouri for finding it & providing images.






You guys tell me what you think. Clearly a large amount of PMD on the obverse, but is it slab worthy? How many are known? I think the 1992 D is the one with little known.

I think this deserves everything if it's authentic...



UPDATE: According to him, he put the coin in a jar and buried it somewhere, so someone else could find it. Don't ask me, I don't know why.

What a horrible looking LMC + after looking at the reverse, I believe it is a wide AM!. I could be wrong, and even if it were a close AM, in that condition I wouldn't send to any TPG Service unless it was SGS, they may grade it a 68,but I don't know if they slab varieties...
Save your money...
My opinion only..

I just zoomed in on my Tablet where it is easy to post a close-close-up photo (below), and as I move the tablet changing angle's----- it looks like a space between the bottom of the A&M, making it a wide AM...

Ok I wrote this and rewrote this several times before submitting because I'm trying to be nice . Guys and girls look at the designers initials that will tell you what it is all day without a blink of an eye. Ms 67 red sold for 20,000 it still might be worth being slabbed for authentication . Prob due to damage I don't know what it would bring. But it is painfully obviously a close AM.

Looks like a close AM to me, I'm grabbing my metal detector. I won't make the trip however until I see a mirror image. I trust and verify.

There can be a space between the A&M and still be a close variety. The telling part is on a wide variety the M is dead center between the A and the E. This is a close variety because the M is to the A side of center.

I'm not a variety collector unless it is also a error, like a 1998 double strike on a wide AM & 2000 wide AM off center Cents.
I never had or held a 1992 wide AM Cent & thought it would be like the 98-2000 WAM Varieties...
I guess I would have to view a side-by-side photo of both a 92 wide & close Cent showing the difference..
