I went to the bank today and while I was there I decided to get a few rolls of pennies. This is my first wide AM ever, not in the best shape but I'll take it.

I would like to hear some thoughts on this coin.

Well it is a wide AM, but not much of a keeper. But save it until you find a better replacement. At least you know your looking for.

Great find! Unfortunately, this coin would get the details grade, do to multiple spots, especially on the forehead.

I would keep it still, even if you found a better one in better shape. I keep all of my Wide AM Cents, regardless of condition. I do not care about the conditions.
