Yes, the dates appear to be placed to the left of edge on the front, and to right on the obverse, therefore i was wondering if the stamping process was done either side at the same time ie , one above ,one below , as to me i would assume that both stamps would be in line and centrally placed but if the blank was slightly moved over to one side ie the right then these stamps would appear as they have been,i wanted to know if this was normal or perhaps a one off.
Oh, now I know what you mean.
I don't know how they made the core, but I have seen more crosses like this.
So it's not so special in that way.
But never the less, it is a small mistake by the maker..
