Description

A repunched die is a coin already created with numbers added later.

Explanations

Until the late 1950s, when manufactured, dies had'nt the last two digits neither the mint mark with "H" for some canadian coins. These difits were added later to save some money without the obligation to produce matrix each year. We see all kinds of defects on these last digits like the spacing of numbers, the shapes of numbers, etc. Repunched die error can also appear on legend of some coins.
