Hey I'm hoping I can get some help with a 1999 D Lincoln Cent that looks to me to be a close AM. I cannot find any information on a Denver minted wide am Lincoln Cent anywhere so any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated, hope the pictures are clear.

It's a Close AM, which is normal for that year.

Close AM is standard for 1999. Wide AM is the rarity.

1992 - close AM variety.

1998, 1999, 2000 - Wide AM variety.

Your 1999 is a common cent with the normal reverse.

One thing a lot of people don't know is that only in 1992 do both P and D mints have a chance of being the close AM variety.

As for 1998, 1999, and 2000 the wide AM variety has only been found in P mints.

Also there is a chance for a close AM on the 1998 S mint.

The scarce one for 1998s would be the proof coins with the close AM.
