That coin specifically isn't a wide rim, because if it was the rim at the base would be almost touching the date. If you google "1979 wide rim vs narrow rim", you can find photos on the web comparing the two varieties side by side

As mentioned in previous comments, it is very easy to tell when side by side, without, not so easy. Look at the examples and you can see the difference.

I was just looking at some of these a few weeks ago for a friend. They had some that were not wide rim. The rim would be closer to the letters and date. I researched it, but can't repeat exactly what to look for. It is quite obvious if you have an example of wide rim and normal rim.

In a wide rim, the 1 in the date would almost be touching the flat portion of the rim surround. This is definitely a narrow rim, even without considering the mintmark.

How about you learning about it from researching it and then teach all of us about it? That would be an interesting blog we all would enjoy.
