Also. The two 3’s rise above the “9” instead of meeting level at it
The noses are different too
Nice ...Tough find.
Looks like a normal 1933 cent to me.
Nice looking '33 congrats!
High circulated grade 1933 cent but nothing special.
Normal 1933-P Cent.
The date looks wider in the top image because the photo is blown up twice as large as the two pics below it.

You have not made clear the coin in question, but I will assume the coin 'that belongs to your friend' is the coin in the brown album.
The differences are the result of some usage and a fair amount of wear on the coin in the brown album. Things that happened after the coin left The Mint. The coins you are comparing it to are simply nicer examples.
The longer I look at the coin in the brown album, the more wear that I see.
Nice album filler.
