I will call this 1967 LMC the "screwdriver 1" Looks like the die was probably polished causing the 1 to look like a screwdriver.

I've seen this before and always figured that they were trying to take out one of those horizontal clash marks that can hit the 1 right about there, although seemingly doing so a little too enthusiastically.

I will have to keep an eye out for one.

Part of the clash area is the first digit. So when polishing the dies to remove the clash marks, it get thinned down a bit.
