    Not sure what is going on with the Ď1í in 1997. Iíd like to know if this could be a closed AM.

    It's just a stain on the 1. All 1997 P cents are close AM.

    Not a stain, itís just not there. Itís rough where it was. Damage after production no doubt.
    Thanks for the info on the 97 P

    The 1 is there as when blown up I see it plainly, but it is stained with some corrosion.

    Yes when I blow it up it's definitely there to me also.

    Perhaps the corrosion is what makes it rough. I really didnít pay much attention to the number . I was more interested in if the A M was a good date to find. As usual this thread has proven to teach me something, once again, and now I know itís not.

    Looks more like a cud between the A M.

    The 1997-P "Wide AM" Lincoln Cent is what you would want to find. I don't think any have been found but it is theorized that some may exist. The bubble between the "A" and "M" is probably a plating bubble due to contaminants that got under the plating.

    Thank you Huntsman. This is a hobby I share with my six year old son. Anytime we get change we look over it very closely. He will be excited to hear that none have been found. Even at six he likes a good challenge.

    PennyG: cherish every moment with your son, a hobby as this will help in the future. I failed to do the same with my five kids. Now they are all grown up with kids of their own, wish I could TURN the clock back. But I now have 13-grandchildren to possibly instill this hobby in some of them.

    Might I suggest that you pick up a few guidebooks on coins. Whitman’s Red Book, and Whitman’s Cherrypickers Guide, Volume One. Their equivalents from other publishers would do. I also use printed, blown up images of varieties and different error types to help me out.

    Time for more coffee.

    PennyG, I do see something unusual that I just noticed on the back of the penny. Look at the U in United and tell me that isn't a smaller u inside of it. It may even be an O, but the magnification online only goes so far.

    What do you think it could be? It's definitely not misplaced or added letters.
