Don't even bother looking at roached out coins, there's no value there and you will be wasting your time

Seeing this is about a 1996 Wide AM, I am very curious as to where the 1996 WAM is listed. I know there is 1996 DDO. I know there is a 1988 Wide AM determined by the font of the FG. Then you have the 1998, 1999, and 2000 WAM.

Hi DSCoins, please watch Daniel Malone's YouTube video regarding the 1996 wide AM. He begins the video by asking, "...does the 1996 wide AM even exist?". And then goes on to explain how in 2009 a certain man, Billy Crowford, who is very respected in the numismatic community claimed to have found one, and even presented a picture of the coin, obverse and reverse. But he then claimed that the coin had been stolen.

Other than that situation, a 1996 wide AM has never been found, graded, or authenticated.

That is why I was (and still am) so excited as to whether or not the coin I found is actually a 1996 wide AM. Regardless of whether or not it has any monitary value due to it's zinc rot damage, if the coin could be authenticated as a 1996 wide AM, it would "solve the mystery" as to if one exists. And it would further bolster Billy Crowford's reputation, and his ascertion that his 1996 wide AM had actually been stolen.

Hope this helps. Thanks for the reply.

Crawford is an expert on this, maybe contact him or use the contact form at error-ref.com and ask there. We can't confirm anything here.

Hi Daniel, thank you for pointing me in a direction... And thank you for all the time and effort you put into your YouTube channels and helping out the coin collecting community. I've learned a lot from your videos (even though I ignored your advice about finding a "problem free" 1996 wide AM cadidate 🙃).
