159. malaysia 10 sen 1990 retooled date ?

Our Bunga Raya series coin are notoriously known for not-so-high quality minting products, especially compared to the Parliament Series.

Apart from die cracks errors, mechanical doubling, or also known as poor man's doubling also can be found easily among these coins.

But this coin particularly drew my attention.

Is this an ordinary Machine Doubling, or a Retooled Date? 

Comments are most welcomed, and sorry for the low quality scan images.

Hi mnfaj,
We have found some of these too.
Looks like a MDD to us.
Just our guess, haha.
Thanks a lot for sharing, mnfaj :)

Hi whycollect,
I think this is an MDD too. But who knows if this coins, at her slightest chance, could be a retooled date. If yes, the first ever on Malaysian coin!

Never shows any record of retooled date in Malaysia,maybe is a recut date!
