Hi everyone!

I was going through some change I had and found a 1996 D Lincoln Memorial penny with misaligned/weird spacing on back, the AM & A in AMERICA are spaced apart from rest of letters. I tried to research it as I am far from being an expert. I just recently got into coin collecting for my daughter.

So from what I've read, it seems this coin doesn't exist? Not sure how that's determined- I have one right in front of me. Can someone please let me know their thoughts on photos I took? Thanks ahead of time for your time and info!

It is the normal reverse die for that year.

Google close and wide AM on Lincoln cents,your 1996 is normal,if you find one that the A and M are spaced apart then that's a find

Now if you find a 1992-P or D with a close AM like the Lincoln cent you pictured then you have a rare find.
