This normal for a 1981 penny . Close AM's and Wide AM's are listed at http://www.lincolncentcollection.com/cl ... Close%20AM.

hi . im no expert . but i understand the close/far AM . but i have seen 1992 d coins that have passed as close AM, i also no that the FG should be further away from the Memorial building for it to be a close AM. but if you have to go back and look at all of those close AM coins you will notice that , from my point of view its really not a close AM. its just extra thick lettering or some doubling of some sort. like i said , im no expert. now i have found a 1971 d that looks close . and i think leaving the 92s that were struck with the 93 die that are rare. a close so called AM is what it is. if it looks close than normal then it should pass as close AM. but it cant be so because the coin grading companies say so ? to me its just unfair.
i have found a few coins that are odd. and have like for example i found a few in the 1986 coins which seem to me like a MOLE . which i have posted . but these have no recognition , as it is not listed. so until the grading companies list this as a variety. its absolutely nothing .
thats just my taught guys i will be posting my 1971 d . have a look . thanks guys

Just die deterioration, look for WAMS and CAMS on the dates listed with these reverses, don't look for other dates because you're getting confused.
