Hello everyone I appreciate any and all help in advance I'májust getting into this and need some help
I have a 1993 penny with a close am I am pretty sure
I took a picture with the 93 and a 1992 penny so use can see how much closer the am is on the 1993 penny . Now I'm wondering is this normal for a 1993 penny or did I get lucky any advice is appreciated Thanks

to CCF. Close AM on a 1993 is normal. It is the 1992 CAM that need to look for.

@beginner-collect The 1980 looks like just a regular cent as well. What are you gonna do once you've been around here a while and you're an expert though?
My best finds:
1996 DDO-001/FS-101: http://goccf.com/t/372066
Two 2000 WAMs in a box: http://goccf.com/t/375240
1995 DDO-001/FS-101: http://goccf.com/t/376071#3225244

If you are going to look for things like this, it's best to understand how it happens, and what it's known to have happened on.

This resource is a good place to start, it's Reverse Design Varieties (RDV) for Lincoln cents, there is also on that site another page for Obverse Design Varities (ODV)
http://varietyvista.com/01b%20LC%20...arieties.htm

since 1959 and the Memorial cent, the mint has tweeked the reverse design a number of times (8). Close and Wide AM die varieties are transitional errors, the switch from one design to another, and the wrong reverse dies were used on the transitional years creating a die variety for that year.

for the Lincoln cent the obverse was used since 1909 with minor changes, this happened 43 times over the years.

Anyways, I found it a useful resource to figure out how to determine the design varieties, and what I am, and am not looking for, along with the DDOs DDRs, and errors.

With future posts, please, one coin per thread. That way it is less confusing to us and allows us to help you better. Thanks.
