    In my recent CRH I found these SBAs, one of which (on the left) looks like it might be the rarer 1979-P Wide Rim (a.k.a. Near Date), versus the more common 1979-P Narrow Rim (a.k.a. Far Date). Or is the left one just a slightly off-center strike (thicker rim at right & bottom) that's giving me an optical delusion? Opinions please ...

    far date if it were a near date all the numbers would be touching/almost touching the rim/rim is just a little thick nothing special.

    The odds of finding a wide rim is about 1-5% which is not too bad. Or that is what I have come across. That is just for 1979 P's not all for all SBA's. Small stats that its 45/55% which is way too high. I have a found a few over the years of course it's harder with all the Pres and Sac's mixed in.
