Hello Again,

Ive been searching my uncles proof sets.  I am now into the 1990s.  I just found in his 1996S proof set a penny with , from what I have been reading about, a wide AM and seeing other photos of the 1992 Wide and Close AM , This looks like a wide to me, the A & M are not almost touching as would be with the close AM.  Correct or incorrect?? Am I misunderstanding? Was the wide AM error on a business strike? and the proofs had the wide AM as a normal feature?

Your input would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

From 1994 to 2008 a wide AM was normal for the proof sets. Close AM's are known for 1998 and 1999.
