How rare is this?

I bought some constitutional today, not much, a 1924 peace dollar, an 1884 seated liberty and an 1882 five cent shield nickel...well not quite 1882 but 1883, well....see for yourself


Notice anything a miss?


1883 shield five cent OVER an 1882


Value in approximately VF20 which I think it exceeds, might even be an XF40 is $950 - $1250


Not bad for $2

I thought my eyes weren't working too well but thanks to my microscope...well that's a nice turn up for the books.

Hmmm. I hope you're right but it looks like a worn "3".

Edit: on second thought, it does look like a 2/3. Maybe you have something there! 

I checked for examples of 3 over 2 and it matches exactly, the three doesn't have the curve at the top left and the two doesn't have the  serifed bottom left...it's not a recent error so off to grading it shall go
