1992 wide am Lincoln cent error

Hi everybody I hope I'm doing this right my first time out here I found some interesting subjects and a lot of information on here so correct me if I'm wrong I got a 1992 wide am Lincoln cent the reverse seems to have dye cracks by the second a in America and through the Lincoln memorial where Lincoln's images also the lettering in United States might be a doubling or possible cud on top of the letters any help would be appreciated thank you.

    Looks like some minor plating bubbles but no doubling.

    I would spend it. The 92 close AM is the valuable one.

    Also it would be a die variety and not an error.

    None of what you named is an error

    Welcome to the forum!

    Like mentioned above. Your's is the normal cent. If it was a closed am, you would be talking BIG money! Now, the "wide AM's" you want to hunt are the 1998p and the more valuable one, the 1999p. Good luck and good to see ya!

    Yep, unfortunately just a spender but keep searching. The more you search, the more the "law of averages" for finding something good lean in your favor (hopefully) :o

    Hey buddy :) I like that, the law of averages. Now, what does the law of averages say about the chance of me getting my azz off the couch and go look at a few thousand of these tonight? Pretty good now, thanks!

    Sounds like you need a nice big frosty mug of motivation! :)

    @CoinscratchFever GEEZ no wonder my bank doesn't have any rolls to sell me.

    @Menza .... Welcome aboard.... Your cent has some plating bubbles, No doubled die or cud. Just a spendable cent, no numismatic premium. Good luck in your searches. Cheers, RickO

    I went through 6 or 7K last night and not even the ones pictured. A 36D in XF was all. Once I decide a box is lame I set it aside and go find more which is why I have a backlog of fed rolled carp. I need to go to some old haunts and find some new stuff today.

  • Thanks everybody I look forward to doing more out here I was feeling under the weather kind of was taking it easy the hobby turned in an obsession LOL

    Yes it is definitely an obsession and it’s kind of like playing duck duck goose except there are 4 to 5,000 ducks for every Goose.
    Glad you’re feeling better and now best of luck!
