Re-cut dies or overstamped letters are not uncommon, particularly CARO over IACO on early Richmond pieces. Other legend oddities occur such as inverted V for A, inverted A for V, misplaced punctuation such as FR?A and BR.I etc. A retrograde N in FRAN is found on some genuine Maltravers and Rose (as well as on counterfeits)
