Class II: Design features on the Die/Hub become distorted or miss-shaped during the annealing/tempering process causing the images to no longer align properly when being re-hubbed.
Class III: Happens when working hubs with different designs features are used to Hub a Die.
Class IV: Happens when a Die is moved off center in the Hubbing Press from the position it was in during the initial Hubbing.
Class V: Happens when a Die is pivoted around a point near the rim during the rehubbing process.
Class VI: Happens when a Hub is overused and the design features become thickened or flattened creating thick design features on the Working Dies.
