Please tell me if this is a WAM 1998 penny. It's a little dirty. Should I dip it in acetone?

The G has serifs so that's one way to tell for sure it's a WAM. Congrats!

Now compare the A in states with a normal 1998 P cent. Notice the close ams, A in states is closer to the T on your right. In the wide AM, the A in states is equal distance between the two Ts in states.

Chavez, you might as well save that picture that Coppergold provided for future references. That will help you a lot.
