Here is the source spreadsheet an chart. Notice date in bottom axis
When copying and pasting a chart with dates as part of chart from Calc to other LO or other applications the the date gets converted to a code. There is no way to copy and paste without this loss. Only way is take screen shot and crop the bitmap. Not a very acceptable work around. I will add attachment to illustrate.

Here is the results if you paste that chart into another appication, notice how date is messed up.
In Calc (as in Excel), a Date is a number, formatted with a "date", "time" ou "datetime" format.
Clearly in your copy the date value is copied (41308 is the 3rd of February 2013 00h00) but the format is lost.
Impress also provides a way to format a number as a date (right clic on the graph X axis > Format Axis > Numbers > Category > Date/Time).
Where both source and destination provide a date/time formatting, one could reasonably expect that the format is copied along with the values. IMHO Bug.
Just tested in 3.5.4. No problem there, so definitely a regression.
Reproducible with 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 when format of numbers/dates of X-Axis are dependant on Data series format :
i.e Source format checked in Format Axis > Number.
When this checkbox is unticked and date format set in this dialog (thus not related to the source), formatting is correctly pasted.
Set to New as confirmed by different people.
I fixed this one as part of Bug 71076. Different root causes, but similar symptoms.
