  • 1993 Proof Lincoln Cent - Close AM

    This part is from the Owner of the coin:

    Hello, I was going through my proof set looking for the close AM cent and I came across one in my 1993 set.
    The thing is though that I have checked a couple of coin sites and most make no mention of a 1993 proof set containing a close AM cent.
    The PCGS site makes mention of 1999 and 1998 sets with a close AM but no mention of a 1993 set.
    I am excited about my discovery and I have attached HDR photos of the cent. I would like your professional opinion

    Thank you so very much, you have helped kindle my error searching hobby a great deal. I plan on joining Coneca soon as well

    I've cropped the photo as best I could and resized it. I will also add one of the original photos he provided.

      I agree. Late last night I dug around on a few coin sites and seen where a Close AM was struck on a 1992-D cent and it fetched over 20 grand at auction. The article basically said that the mint embraced the close AM in 1993. Then, from what I see, in 1994, the proof sets went back to a Wide AM. 1993 was just an oddball year. Yesterday, I emailed the owner and let him see the three Close AM's I had stuck away in the safe.

        I'm also checking the BS strike for 93, hoping to find a wide AM ...
