So after my small break from the joys of coin hunting. I found and this... has to be a proof it just came out of a circulated box though making the Wide AM normal to my understanding for the proof coins of this year but this REV is it possible to have this many die cracks or is this defective due to wear and tear? It's very dirty

Well, all I can say for this sorry looking proof is that it got busted out of a proof set, spent some, and most likely ended up on a parking lot to make it look like this...

Given the very soft (liquid-like) photos posed, I'm not seeing die cracks.

Sorry but I'm not seeing any die cracks either.
Perhaps a closeup of what you consider a die crack.

Those are not Die Cracks, they are Die Chips and or plating bubbles

This is me thinking I am watching all the wrong YouTube coin hunting videos now for terminology & . I really think it might be from the harsh environment though. Like The plate bubbles Because if it came from a proof set shouldn't they be of better quality and have less die chips etc?

It looks like a normal Close AM cent to me with some wear. The light might be playing tricks with my eyes though.

Hmm so a few articles on this forum stated that a Close AM in the proof set for this year would be "a discovery peice". That the proof sets where Wide AM. Now I am even more confused. And Wide AM is sought after in business strike. Can someone clarify for me so my notes are correct lol

This looks like a Close AM Business strike coin that got a little beat up.
AS for cracks in the die, All I see are die chips - could also be gas bubbles from the zinc dust.

I promise it's a wide haha in the morning I will go back out into my she shed and get a better picture with better lighting when the sun is up. And get you the reason why I believe it's a proof coin. My lighting was very bad in these pictures.

Did they make San Fransisco business strikes in 2000? It clearly has an S mint mark.

You can also check the distance of the FG from the memorial (compare it to a normal P or D in that same time period). The proof coin should be different distance away.

This is a WAM which is normal for 2000S proof cent. No S business strikes were produced in 2000.

Even the highest grade of a proof cent in DCAM it would be worth $50 in perfect condition

It would not be a high dollar coin.
You coin is showing damage and other issues. Looks like the reason it was spent was that it was not considered worth keeping.
It not a a Close AM 2008-S. None known for this year. Just a face value damaged cull coin now.
