What is the value of this coin graded and ungraded can anyone give me a good idea of what I should do ? I've been through probably a million Pennie's by now and this is the first Wide AM I've ever found so I'm certain they are rare.

I believe your coin is a Close AM, not the Wide AM you were hoping for. I cannot see the FG initials closely, but the FG isn't hugging the Memorial the way you'd want them to with a Wide AM. Come back with close, sharp images of the designer initials and we can revisit again your claim.

Looks like a WAM to me.
The A between the T's in STATES is centered and the
FG is close to the Memorial.

Not a grading candidate in this condition.

Nice find. But not close to being slabed.

I agree it is a WAM - but this in no way is a rare coin and the worn spotty condition IMO does not warrant TPG evaluation.

Congrats on your long awaited find. Secure it in a 2x2 and enjoy the find.
