Does not look like the A and M are touching so it is a WAM. A close up pic of AM would help.

Looks like a WAM, because the initials are closer to the memorial building than the CAM would be.

The M is definitely not centered between the A & E. It is closer to the A (and doesn't have to touch, but should be centered) which puts it in CLAM territory.

The initials are questionable. Hmmm....
A closeup of the designers initial would help.

Thanks John for the link but I meant if the OP could post better closeup images it might help. It's awful dark on their images in that area.

Is it possible that there might be a third variety, although the FG initials suggest that it is a wide AM I looked at my 1992 cents and the AM is farther apart than the op's coin. Even Wexlers description suggest that the AM is not touching but they are very close and on the WAM the A and the M are farther apart almost centered. I don't see that on the op's coin, the A and M are very close. I agree with petespocket55 assessment.

The light reflection is reducing the left side of the 'E'. That makes it look like a Close 'AM'. The "FG" Is different on the RDV-007.

Pshann, any chance you can post a clear closeup of the FG to help be able to see it better? The shadows are making it difficult to tell, for me anyway.
Thanks.
