    Do the broad strikes bring any value?

  2. "What you have is a cent struck by slightly misaligned dies (MAD) they are pretty common and these do not command a premium unless part of the design is cut off.

    Below is information from our glossary and also a link to error-ref.com regarding broadstrike

    Misaligned Die: This refers to a coin that was struck by dies that were not in correct position in relation to each other. A coin struck by a misaligned die can be determined by noting a difference in its relative centered-ness between the obverse and reverse of a coin. Below is an example of a cent struck by slightly misaligned dies. These do not command a premium unless the misalignment is severe enough to have part of the design cut off.

    Totally agree with Viv.
    A very good example for always posting images of both sides of a coin.
    Sometimes the second side may provide information necessary to provide a definitive answer.
