Re-Punched Dates (RPD's)

Back in the day, Each die that was created had its date punched into the die by hand. They softened up the die and then utilizing a date punch and maybe a mallet attempted to strike the date into the new die. This process was far from perfect. Some times the punching of the date was insufficient and additional attempts to add good date was done. Re-punched dates can be either very dramatic in nature or very close and subtle. This area is open for discussions and questions about the Repunched date variety.
