The last digit is rotated in a counterclockwise direction and shifted northward. Online images of other 1964 5-centavo coins show the last digit malpositioned in slightly different ways, evidence that it was punched into each working die by hand. CWW 7/11/2016 "Ham-handed updates" by Mike Diamond
I am also curious about the extra lines on some of the letters (see arrows). While there appears to be some MD in places, the lines indicated are actually separated from the main body of the device. Can that be another form of MD? Is it evidence of re-cutting or repunching or a doubled die?
