I also have this coin too! Not sure if this is a broadstrike?

    Not sure about it being a broad strike, probably just some PMD, but it’s very hard to tell from the photos. Please provide clearer, higher resolution photos on a lighter background.

    Based on the dark photos, it appears to be struck on a rolled thin planchet
    As a rough guess, I’d say it probably weighs about two grains or a bit more

    The first thing to look for on a broad strike is a larger than normal diameter. Neither of your coins show this.

    @Reinadecalif ... Welcome aboard. Tough to determine conclusively from those pictures.... As @FredWeinberg said, it appears to be a rolled thin planchet, along with wear.... Better pictures would help. Cheers, RickO

  • Thank you all for your input, I for sure need better pictures, thanks again.
