Sorry to insert South Africa coins into the UK forum but I think this is as close to the "correct" forum as I can get.
First Assumption: South African coins struck during WWII were struck in in the UK (hence the reason I posted this here).
Second Assumption: Royal Mint practices during WWII were a bit more conservative considering war-time material usage.
Third Assumption: Coin collecting in the UK is not as concerned about errors as in the US (and Canada).

Here is a 1943 South Africa 3d coin.
It looks like the "43" has been either repunched or recut.
If that is correct I suspect that was done to extend the die life and conserve steel.

After some more checking I've found out that the South Africa coins of WWII were NOT struck in the UK.
They were struck in Pretoria.
