OK following up on the suggestions.
First the user profile page linked to doesn't exist so I can't try that.
I upgraded my system to the latest LibreOffice in case that was a problem am running 18.104.22.168 (Build
All data was originally created on the same machine in the US locale not changed.
I have tried all subsets of paste special I can think of.
I tried setting the format of the cells to number general. Copied those, pasted into a new
spreadsheet, The numbers did not change at all. But when I then set the format to date the dates
are not the same and are incorrect.
Tried the copy within the sheet where the dates are correct and it works properly
Tried a select of the dates where they are correct. get a brand new blank spreadsheet, paste the
dates. They are incorrect
Tried copy of the dates after they have been changed to format as numbers create a brand new
spreadsheet paste verify the numbers are the same change the format to date and then the dates are

without knowing the reasons of your problem, and in addition what Brian
wrote, you could try the following:
As dates are represented internally by (integer) numbers, please select
the cells containing the dates before you copy them, and set the cell
format to "standard". Then all dates should turn into numbers.
What happens if you copy&paste those numbers to your new spreadsheet?
Do the numbers change?
If not, you can then select the target cells and format them as date -
and see if they are correct now.
