PCGS "Weak Strike" Copper Lincoln Cent + PCGS Broadstrike Wheat Cent on eBay

I am obviously wrong (yet don't understand why) this Lincoln cent is not a die-trial set up piece.
Weak Strike 196X-D:

1952-S Broadstruck Lincoln Cent
(Cleaned, but certainly not offensively so.)

    They are the same thing. However, “die set-up” or “die adjustment strike” often cannot be proven. It’s a more romantic explanation for the error, but may not be accurate unless one saw the coin being struck. The TPGs are inconsistent about how they label this error type.

    Nice errors. Especially the weak strike ;)
