U.S. Coin Values: Lincoln Cents - Memorial Reverse.
About 1992 1c RD Close AM
The 1992 Close AM Lincoln cent is an extremely rare transitional error that may have been created in the process of testing new reverse dies for the production of 1993 Lincoln cents, which show the bottoms of the letters A and M of the word AMERICA very close together, virtually touching each other. The very close proximity of the A and M is a very easy diagnostic for attributing the 1992 Close AM Lincoln cent and distinguishing it from the regular 1992 Lincoln cents, which show a perceptible gap between the bottoms of the A and M.
This variety was discovered in 2006, a few years after a similar transitional error was first found for the 1992-D cent. However, the 1992-D Close AM Lincoln cents are relatively more common than the 1992 Close AM cent. While more than a dozen 1992-D Close AM Lincoln cents are known, there are perhaps only a few 1992 Close AM Lincoln cents in existence.

About CDN Prices
All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.
CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.
Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.
Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.
CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.
Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.
The prices listed in our database are intended to be used as an indication only. Users are strongly encouraged to seek multiple sources of pricing before making a final determination of value.
