Better pics are needed. Even then this particular year gives me a headache at times as there are a lot of different variations of date including wide date,extra wide date,left tilted date figures,right tilted date figures,high date figures,low date figures,upright date figures,thin date figures,thick date figures. All of these may give the illusion of a wide date.You would have to compare with others you might have and then do some measurements, remembering that we are dealing with fractions of mms and angles. On the plus side it looks like your coin is above average for this year.

Sorry aussie1984, it's the common left tilted 9 which accounts for about 95% of the mintage. I call it the common left tilted 9 intermediate width date, where the left edge of the last 2 aligns with the centre of the fifteenth denticle from the 1.

I've done my own research on the 22's, and if you're interested, there is another intermediate width date coin that displays a more upright 9 and is quite rare. Of course when looking at the upright to slightly right leaning 9's, it's easy to to confuse the four groups that share this type of 9, these being the Narrow Date (left edge of last 2 aligns with left side of denticle 15), Intermediate Date (as described above), Wide Date (left edge of last 2 aligns with right side of denticle 15) and Extra Wide Date (left edge of last 2 aligns with left side of denticle 16). These four groups account for approximately 5% of the total mintage only, with the Narrow and Intermediate width dates being the scarcest of the four.
