Look at PCGS website. Yes they have graded a few.
All 88s are wide am.
Now if you found a 1988 Close AM then you have something.
If you like it, put it in a 2x2 and save it.
I think you have to be at MS 67 or 68 for a zinc cent to be anything.
Maybe this is an MS 64 hard to tell with these photos. I'd go a nickel.
Start a new thread and post it.
I am not doubting your coin, but if even 1 die had a Close AM that makes hundreds of thousands of Close AM 1995's and it would have been discovered long before now.
Photo is nec.
Please start a new thread with photos of both sides.
The rare 1988 is the 1988 with the rev of 89. The main difference is in the designers initials. The problem is that when PCGS slabs an 88 rev of 89 they put WIDE AM on the label. This makes people think that if they have a 1988 cent with a Wide AM they have the rare coin. The problem is that BOTH 1988 and 1989 have Wide AM's. In fact as has been mentioned ALL cents before 1992 have Wide AM's. The whole problem is caused by PCGS putting something on the label that shouldn't be there.
