You can look it up but sometimes the proof Wide or Close AMs are the opposite
of what the normal business strikes are.
And so it's probably normal for that coin.
1909-1955 the S cents were business strikes.
I meant in 2008
@Michael K is correct. It's an impaired proof. The last business strike Lincoln cent struck at San Francisco was 1974. (1975 and later are all proof). It just surprises me that there's not even a hint of luster on that coin.
I'll check it.. I didn't know that
There is luster, I just didnt take good pics lol. It's pretty shiney.. and thick.. the other s mint pennies are I have are not that thick
Hmm.. idk why but every time I take a pic, it takes the shine away.. must be my phone
There for not a wide a m.
You have posted enough times to know that you could have easily done a little research and found out what a proof and close/wide AM's are plus the relative years. No offense is intended, but you could have looked it up with the references others have already given you.
Incorrect.. That is definitely a Wide AM.
You only look at the distance between the A and the M.. That's why they are called Wide and Close AM
Just a hint if you crop your photo's and do away with all the background your pictures will be easier to view.
Most of it is gunk.. is nail polish a bad alternative to acetone? Lol
Yes, it contains more addivities than gasoline. You need industrial strength acetone. Very pure with no ill affects. Nail polish will eat the surface off of any coin.
