1996 Wide AM
On January 10th, 2009 this coin
was found by Billy Crawford in a
coin roll. This is the only known
Billy noticed the coin had a
strange obverse that appears to
be a struck through.  Next, he
flipped the coin over and noticed
that it had a rotated reverse.  
About 55-60 degrees.  But, when
he noticed that the coin had a
Wide AM he was truly shocked!  
You can see the thread that Billy
posted his find on
here.  Months
later the coin was reportedly
stolen.
