    Your coins are as they should be, wide AM. It's the 1992 D Proof close AM that is the valuable coin. And your poll should have read doubled die, not double dye.

    Actually those are the wide A/M, which are normal for that year. The close ones touch.

    What do they know?

    Let me put it another way. If can you see separation it’s wide.

    Having searched a couple tons of cents a few years ago and found none, I’d say you’d be the luckiest human on earth to find 5
    All wide

    Nope. Blow up the image posted by Mike Estes, which IS a Close AM, and you will see that the A and M are still separated and do not touch.

    But you’re misleading everybody now. Because now the next guy is going to come on here with examples like these and question whether they’re close.

    So let’s split the pot. If they don’t LOOK like they’re touching, they’re NOT close, they’re wide. Every one of these clearly don’t LOOK like they’re touching.

    They’re looking for guidance. Let’s keep our eyes on the ball and give them it.

    The key for Close and Wide AM's is still, if the space between the AM is the same as between ME it is a Wide AM. If the space between the AM is CLEARLY smaller than the space between the ME it's a Close AM.

    I’ll have to look ours over and see if that applies. I’m of course not doubting it. I’d just not heard it, not here or anywhere.

    these are the greatest design differences for comparison and identification.

    Reverse Design variety RDV-006. "Wide AM" reverse and the normal reverse for 1989-1992.

    Reverse Design Variety RDV-007. This is the "Close AM" and the normal reverse for 1993-2008.

    For RVD-006 you can use any reverse example of 1989-1991 for comparison
    For RVD-007 you can use an example of 1993-2008 (except for 1998, 1999, 2000 which might be the "Wide AM" which is RDV-006).

    I don't know of a better way to explain this, this is the key to both the '92 Close AM, and the '98, '99, and 2000 Wide AM.

    In my Opinion, the FG is the dead giveaway on which reverse it is. it's distance from the memorial, the stem and seriff, the circular curve on
    RDV-006 vs the almost backwards looking D of the G on RDV-007.

    Due to die deterioration and contact marks, the AM placement can spread or be pushed closer together, I feel like it's a good first step at identifying needing to take a closer look, but the FG location and "G" font is the confirming point.
