Possible Close AM. I'm sure it's going to be an easy No but it's worth a try. So without further ado here she is

Need a better photo to really help you but here is some info on the Denver one which has the same diagnostics:http://www.lincolncentresource.com/...closeAM.html

The reverse shown in those photos is the WAM variety - as expected for a 1992 dated Lincoln.

Don't let the apparent closeness of AM fool you. That spacing is subject to change due to die wear and can appear at first glance to be a CAM. Your coin exhibits this phenomenon.

I use the diagnostic spacing of the letter A in the legend STATES. When the A is centered between the adjacent T's then the reverse is a WAM. When the A is closer to the second T then the reverse is a CAM.

See for yourself using this diagnostic - you have a WAM reverse.

That's a nice photo of the AM. Did you read my reply of what else to look for?

edit for clarity

That's supposed to be of the area Nickel... Pointed out. Not sure why it changes it?

Michael C,
It looks like you need to filter your light source. What is your current photo taking set up? Camera,light (s) etc.

That FG appears to be from a Wide AM coin due to its closeness to the memorial base.

Don't go by the AME, that is the worst marker to go by.
The A is centered between the the T's in STATES
and the initials are close to the memorial. It is a WAM.

Initials tells it all. Close initials WAM, far initials CAM.
