Braodstruck was my first thought but something looked "off" about the design.
I don't know why anyone would fake a 1972 cent other than 1972 is popular for faking because of all the Doubled Dies.

The bottom point on the 2 on the date looks wrong, the pair of S's on STATES seem wrong, and something seems off on the bust but I can't put my finger on it. I don't know if these distortions can be caused by being broadstruck.

It does have a struck rim so it would need to have been struck twice, once in the collar and then out of collar, like Coop said.

Maybe it is on a foreign planchet- Chinese.
Maybe ,just maybe, "they" were trying to perfect their fake dies or venturing into error coins?

Ok, guys! Can not thank you enough. Consensus is broadstrike, but with other questions, is this something I should send in? If so to whom and where?

I would like to know what Mike Diamond thinks. "If" you send it in,ANACS will cost you the least.

All available evidence indicates that this is a broadstrike.
