No, I don't have a smudge on the dark blue bit either - but I think that's great that you do have ... a mirror image of the 4 stars which form a cross. I also thought the handle of the sword looked like some kind of animal, but under the magnifier it looks like a cross with a red stone in the centre - the hand-guards are like wings, or axe blades, with a larger red stone set inbetween them ... so I would think the smudge-cross symbolism is quite significant anyway David, even if it is unique to your deck.
I have a purplish bit up in the top right hand corner above the second castle turret, which to me looks like the moon behind cloud and emphasises the concealment and hidden/veiled element of the card, but I'm not sure if that's supposed to be there either - it makes the card 'darker', but emphasises the stars as the 'light', the guides, omens and hopes - as if these are all kept to ones self too.
