Guessing this coin has likely changed hands a few times, so I'll say AU-58.

A little hard to tell from the pictures but I'd say it's been around the block several times. Is that a wrapper finger scratch on the Obv NE? AU-50, maybe.
- About two score and seven+ years ago, I began a Lincoln cent collection. I have all, most in AU or better & am upgrading to MS as possible.
- I collect all coins minted 1809, 1859, 1909, 1959, and 2009. Lincoln and C.Darwin were both born in 1809. The latter published his "On the Origin of Species.." in 1859, the Lincoln cent debuted in 1909, and after that it just seemed like a good way to show the evolution of US coinage. Most non-nums to whom I've shown these react with the phrase, "I had no idea!" That alone shows their worth.
- I've completed MS sets of Jeffersons & MS specimens of other 5 nickels; Franklins done. Roosies mostly done. I enjoy hunting for WLH and "winged liberty" dimes.
-- If I left my early Washington quarter book at one of y'alls house, please ring me up.

Looks like a WAM to me as well.

I zoomed in on the reverse and while it was blurry it looked to me like the M is centered between the A and E, the FG looks far enough away, and the A in states looks centered between the Ts.

It is a Wide AM I know this is facts from the coin dealer here in town. I just don't know how to grade these things lol. I look at the PCGS app they have with pics and all and I just ahhh forget it I can't. But now I have an idea about this one. I just can't afford to get it graded and all that. So I'll hold onto it until I can. You are all awesome as usual thank you so much.

I don't know if it's worth the cost of having this one graded. Yes, it is a WAM, but still, grading isn't cheap.
