    It's only worth what a collector of CAM's (Close AM) is willing to pay for it.. Nothing with a huge premium though.

    The 1992 and 1992-D CAMs still sell for a pretty penny... :p

    It's worth more than face value to a collector of sorts.

    Define ; Pretty Penny if you could please and
    What other years are worth "Pretty Pennies" , with this same error ? I'm asking because there are Obviously alot of different Outlets to get "Information" about , but asking a Forum of Collectors/ Enthusiasts seems more practical ..I don't know. Maybe I'm wrong ?

    1992-P and 1992-D Closed AM cents sell for several hundred dollars and up depending on the grade. Those are the only ones you need to worry about as far as "Closed AM" for circulation coins.

    For "Wide AM"cents, you need to be looking at 1998P, 1999P, and 2000P.
    98's and 00's are fairly plentiful (I've found close to 100 of each) and only sell for maybe a few bucks if you are lucky. 99P's are much scarcer (I've only found 2) and a decent one will sell for ~$100.

    I'm specifically speaking only of the Close AM variety. People say Different years are worth more than others and as far as Value , these are se of the Newest looking Nearly if not Uncirculated Conditions but thank you for information on the Wide AM Variety as well

    The ONLY Close AM cents worth a premium are the 1992 and the 1998 S and 1999 S. No other Close AM cent has a premium because of the "Close AM".

    This may help, there are charts online also. this is in order of hard to easiest (rarest to least rare)

    1. 1992 Close AM - extremely rare
    2. 1992-D Close AM
    3. 1998 S Close AM (Proof Set issued)
    4. 1999 S Close AM (Proof Set issued)
    5. 1999 Wide AM
    6. 1998 Wide AM
    7. 2000 Wide AM - least rare

    Now I would say the 2000 is the easiest to find, and it's still hard, I've only found a half dozen maybe since 2000. next is the 1998, I've only found 2 since then.
    I've never found any of the others, and I checked about 100 proof sets of 1998 and 1999 also, whenever I stop at a coin store somewhere or show, hoping I find something someone missed. never found the 1999 WAM or the 1992 CAMS. All are hard and it takes a lot of searching, but the 2000 is the easiest, followed by the 1998.

    if you check Ebay sales, it's really rare to see a 1992 CAM, there are more 1999 and 1992-Ds even. There are more S mint 1998 and 1999 Proof CAMs that come up. probably less than 100 examples known to the grading companies of either the 1992 or the 1992-D Close AM variety, and the 1992 is probably under 50 examples graded since first find.

    Whatever it brings. There probably aren't enough verifiable sales to create a firm estimate.

    If I had to guess for a 1992 P Close AM , MS60 RB, you might get in the game at $1200-$1500 on the low side in an auction. Probably won't win though with that but maybe.
    MS61 RB just under $2000. MS62 RD and Are $3000+ , MS63 RD are $5000+ if they did come up at auction. And from there $8000+ for 64RD.
    You can pretty much double the price of RD from the price of RB.
    But there's not that many that come up for sale that are MS. Maybe 1 or 2 a year and it's whatever grade it is at heritage or great collections or something like that. It's so infrequent it's hard to gauge where the line is drawn.

    And I do have to guess at the price ranges but I think I can put you in the ballpark.
    It's the white whale.
