In 1993 the reverse design was slightly modified by moving the letters "AM" in America closer together. Some examples were either struck as test pieces or by accident dated 1992 with a 1993 reverse design known as 1992 "Close AM". Some of the coins were struck at Philadelphia and a few others at Denver. Currently both are really scarce with 2 or 3 examples known for the 92P and about 5 examples known for the 92D.

Struck only as Proofs and available originally only in Proof Sets. A few 1998S proof cents were accidentally struck with business strike dies accidentally processed as proof dies referred to as "Close AM" cents. The letters "AM" of America will be almost touching on regular business strike coins and spaced further apart on regular issued proofs. This variety is  very scarce currently there are about 5 to 10 examples known. http://www.pcgs.com/articles/article_view.chtml?artid=4762&universeid=313&type=1
