    Hey everyone! I have been looking for this close AM variety for a long time. I am pretty sure I found one, but as you can see, the condition is poor. I thought for a minute that the coin was double struck also.... but I believe it's just PMD.
    That would be really cool if it was a double denomination and a CAM!
    With the damage to the coin, I am wanting to know if it still has value.
    What do you think? Does this carry any value? 20180713_115730.jpg 20180713_075754.jpg 20180713_115820.jpg 20180713_115823.jpg 20180713_115842.jpg 20180713_115857.jpg 20180713_115906.jpg 20180713_115941.jpg 20180713_115944.jpg

    Looks like a Wide AM. I haven't found a close AM 92 yet but it will be my luck that I will eventually find one and, being zinc, it'll be in terrible shape. :)

    What @CoinCorgi said. It's a WAM (default for that year), not a CAM (the rare one).

    Also, holy cow... I can barely tell if it's really a 1992 or not. What the heck did someone do that poor coin? ;-)

    Cool story. Not a CAM. Just a normal WAM. Worth 1cent.

    I agree looks like a WAM to me. Take a look at the A in states. Yours appears to be evenly spaced between the Ts. On a CAM the A would be closer to the T to it's right.

    Wide Am for sure. The damage may have pushed the left leg a bit but there is clearly a space even with the blur in the photo.
