    We'd need to see that 'AM'
    section of the coin in a photo.

    Your two posted photos don't show
    'America' on the reverse.

    I don't think so, the A and M should nearly be touching and the FG should be further from the base of the Lincoln Memorial. The picture makes it hard to tell what's going on. Can you post a straight on photo more in focus? It would be cool if you had one, but it's not looking like it.

    My bad - I didn't click on the images,
    I just saw that they didn't show the
    area in question - I guess I was impatient.

    sorry....

    it looks like the wide variety... judging by the G in FG.

    I just can't tell, and you're not alone in your search for them. Love rare, like fresh meat. Welcome aboard

    This issue is one of the limited number of reasons these days to check your pocket change. It's the great seduction of the hobby for kids: looking through dad's change jar!
