    Would this be considered a wide A M cent ? It's my understanding that all 93 and up are close AM !? This is a 94 ! IMG_20180113_164419386.jpg IMG_20180113_164443704_HDR.jpg

    Nope. It's a normal close AM cent.

    Look at the spacing between the A/M/E. It should all be equal to be a Wide AM. A close AM is closer AM than ME. Even if the AM is not exactly touching.

    Yes appears to be a late die state close am.

    Ignore whether or not they are touching, that varies depending on how much wear and/or polishing the die has received. Just take a quick glance/first impression of the AME. Does the M look centered between the A and E or does it give the impression that it is "crowding" the A. That one definitely isn't "centered".

    Yes my thought was that the A&M were close together because of where but then I was also looking at the thickness of the m and the a and wasn't very sure so I thought I would ask you guys thanks for the help again
