I have a lot of coins and am new to all of the different variables ect. I spent many hours researching the Am coins. The 1996 (with no mint mark) does not appear to have a huge space between the A M but if you look at the FG and compare to the 96D's FG (I will post a pic in comments to show the difference) I was wondering if maybe I have a double? I'm not sure so thats why I am asking yall for some help. I want to have my Charlie finding the Golden Ticket moment ;)
Anyway thanks so much for helping me learn. I have really been enjoying my new hobby aka obsession.

Can't really see where there is any difference. Sometimes Die Polishing can
make it appear that the spacing is different.

I don't see any doubling, and that is a Close AM. Keep searching!

Close AM. Look at the distance between the A and the M and the distance between the M and the E. Wide AM would have the same distance.

First, I want to thank everyone for being so respectful and kind. If you look at the F in the 1996 no mint mark, you can see it is closer than the 96 D. the last A in the D is a lot thinner than the one I hope will make me rich af. In person you can really see the difference in the width of the letters. Even the 1996 and Liberty is different. It's just hard for me to upload pics on here from my phone.

The only WAM varieties known to exist are 1998-2000 Philadelphia. No Denver minted WAMs are known, and none from any other year are known to exist. As for the coin being a doubled die, I think you should look up more about how doubled dies occur and try to understand what to look for. Error-ref.com has a great general write-up on the various classes of doubled die. Once you have that working knowledge, use a reference site like variety vista, Wexler's die varieties, or coppercoins to compare your coins against the known doubled die varieties for each date.
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
2000-D Maryland Quarter Rotated Die http://goccf.com/t/394553
