Possible 1883/2 Shield Nickel

Coins | CoinStar08

So I got this coin a while ago and I have been a bit curious about it. When I got it, it said that it was a 1883 shield nickel.
But when I looked at the red book, I saw an error for a 1883/2 shield nickel. I am not a coin expert, so I was wonderingIf any collectors out there had an opinion. The 3 looks like it could have a 2 within it also. But I don't know. Sorry aboutthe blurry pictures, but please let me know your opinion in the comments.

Way to hard to see the coin details.

Pretty cool, but hard to see clearly. Maybe take it to your local coin dealer.

I will try to update pics.

Too far gone for me to tell. Maybe if it is in hand.

Too worn for me to tell, and unless the person paid for variety attribution, I doubt they even look for varieties.

If it is a 1883/s, too bad the grading service did not mention it.

Look's very possible. Sure looks like a 2 hidden in there. Let us know what you find out. Thanks

It's just a slab to protect it. It's not graded or anything. Thanks for the tips!

Nice coin but hard to tell by pictures. Take it to a dealer. Is this slabed by a major grader? If it is it would say something on the label! If it doesn't then it's not a varity.

Technically, it wouldn't be considered an error. It would be considered a variety. That's because it was purposely changed by the mint. That's a great coin to own! Thanks for sharing it
