I recently purchased an 1825 Farthing from eBay, and after examining it I can say that it is obverse 1 with a lower 5 in the date. I cannot see myself if it is an overstrike, so I have attached a close up, and would like to hear from anyone who can tell me what it most likely is (Ie: 5/5, 5/3 5/? or just simply a lower 5). Thanks.

Probably just a lower 5. The whole issue is plagued with misaligned dates. I have 1821, 2x1822 & 1825 and all are rising left to right except for the P1411 which has the last two digits level.
