This time, it's a good one - that's certainly got all the hallmarks of a die clash, and quite a prominent one.

Not quite sure why you're labelling it "misaligned" - it looks normally aligned to me.

Nice one Allcoinage, great find. I'm going to do a match up later on.

Is it normal for the echidna to be off centre like that or is it within tolerance?

And is the obverse upset like is shown?

I did an overlay of the two faces, my first attempt using paint.net.

No, not up side down, just mirrored sideways. take another look. What you say is the top of the 5, is the start of the hook of the 5.

Die clashes are mirror-reversed - what you're seeing is the middle corner of a backwards-5. Not rotated.
