CLOSE AM: You'll notice this: AM E
OTHERWISE: You'll see this: A M E
Take a look at your first reference photo: You'll see that the "M" is much closer to the "A" than the "E."
Then, in the second photo (your coin), the "M" is right in the middle between the "A" and "E." So it's not a CLOSE AM.
It's a very quick way of finding out and you don't need magnification.
I don't think yours qualifies as a close AM. Keep in mind, that often times, as a die wears, the lettering can get mushy and in this case may look closer than a normal coin.
The C looks like a greaser to me! Either that or it's seriously worn!! IMHO!

Either it's RDV-006 or RDV-007. Use the above link and figure out which it is.
It's not a matter of close enough or not close enough, its either an RVD-007 or it isn't.
