That is the normal reverse for the 1996 proof cents.  After 1993 all the proof cents are supposed to have the Wide AM reverse, and all the business strikes are supposed to have the Close AM.  In 1998 and 1999 at least one Close AM die was polished and used to strike proof coins, and in 1998. 99, and 2000 at least one Wide AM die was used to make business strikes.
