    Well that is something I have never looked for when checking cents. Will add 1988 to my list of 'check for detail' cents..... Thanks for the article. Cheers, RickO

    I've always searched for them as a Large FG, but never found one. Some say there is a wide am error, but they are all wide am to my knowledge.

    Ok, I see there is such a thing as an 1988 p&d with a 1989 reverse. I cannot fathom finding this coin by looking at the reverse differences. I think you must find Gasparro's initial difference and then you just happen to have the differnce in type for the A M. Weird.
