5 over 4

Note: Other overdates such as 5/7 and 5/3 are also reported, but I am yet to see any convincing examples. All appear to be the same underlying digit? but in varying states. The 5/4 seems to actually be responsible for each of these varieties, and it is also worth noting that there are multiple dies involved.
