Top one looks like a CAM and the bottom one looks like a WAM.

That depends on the year.

With firearms we say finger off the trigger with coins we say finger off the face of the coins.

When I find dates that have possible WAMS or CAMS, I quit looking at the AM and instead look at the FG.

Whether they are normal would depend on their dates, the Wide Am coin now has a fingerprint which if not immediately removed will eventually etch itself into the surface of the coin.

Ones a 1998 and the back 1 is a 99 . That'd be cool if I did find them . I bought 20 rolls of pennies and went through half . It took 4 hrs . My neck still hurts . Going through the other uncrimped rolls now . I'm glad I found SOMETHING & . I HAVE a close AM from 2000 and the A overlaps the M . I'll post it later .

The close AM on the 2000 is normal.

Concur if the coin shown against your finger is dated 1998 then it is indeed a WAM.
