Fully struck with profound field-to-device contrast, there is no mistaking the proof status of this coin. And there in lies the rub, for the proof 1998-S Lincoln Cent was supposed to be produced using the Wide AM reverse hub. This coin, however, exhibits the Close AM reverse of the year's business strike delivery. Virtually pristine!
