The first 0 of the date in the right picture is empty, the second filling up. The other way around on the left picture. A designer would have made both zeroes the same. Therefore not a design change (feature), but a dirty die error (bug). ;D

Of course you're right, but they obviously never clean their dies, so in a way it becomes a feature, if you see what I mean?
