I found in POCKET change. I'm not sure if it qualifies as a wide AM error. WEIGHT 2.5 grams.
Your opinion please.

Looks like a close AM with a hit on the right leg of the A.

Not even close. The FG initials will tell you what you've got.

The coin on the left is the RDV-007 and is the closed AM, the coin on the right is from an RDV-005 and is a wide AM.

Is it rare even if damaged,?
Also I know that in 1989 THE g was given a left RETURN in the vertical line. This doesn't have that it has a 1988 reverse. I'm I correct to think it's another error?

First opinion: don't hold your coins in your fingers (causes fingerprints)
Second fact: All of the 1994 pennies are close AMs... wide and close wasn't even a factour in 1994.

Put it back in your pocket and spend it.

Sorry not a line but a serif on top of vertical line and the vertical line extends a little past the curve.

I understand that about 1994 are supposed to be close AM. But so are the 1998 and 1999 P & D and some have been found with wide AM. I'm wondering if this is the same case?

No, there is no chance that the cent you posted about is a wide am. No chance. It is a damaged cent worth one cent.

The ONLY years that have close and wide issues are 1992, 1992-D, 1998, 1999, and 2000. You can look at all the other dates you'd like, but the only ones that matter are these.
