Suggested correction: You're going to have to define "mishandling" and explain how it's a mistake, because I watched the movie last night, and then just looked up the scene again on YouTube, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with what he's doing at the moment in question. Certainly nothing that would qualify it as a "mistake." He's just fumbling with his staff as he pulls it out and gets ready for potential combat, since, you know, his brother was just thrown in through a window. At best, he sort-of loses grip on his staff for a half-second before grabbing it again... but that's not really a "mistake." Fumbling with objects (especially in a high-stress situation) is something that happens to people in real-life literally all the time.

Character mistake: At the ravine, upon learning that the bridge doesn't exist yet, Marty states to Doc "We can't wait a year and a half for this to be built". If you carefully look at the sign, it says the bridge is opening Summer 1886. That's under a year away, not a year and a half from Sept. 1885.
