Within the lower shield of Obverse 4, two faint misplaced digits can be seen. The first and most obvious appears to be the top loop of an 8 and can been found between shield lines 6 and 7. The second is more difficult to see. It is located within the bottom fold of the scroll end. This misplaced digit appears to be the upper left top loop of an 8 digit. Two different lighting angles are presented in the above illustrations to help the reader understand the locations of these misplaced digits.
