1943 P War nickel Is this a 3 over the 2 type?

I guess I had too much time on my hands today, so I decided to look at my bu War nickels and noticed a 1943-p( which definitely isn't BU) date looked strange. Do any of you guys have an opinion on what the real status of this 1943 P is. Is it a 3 over 2 or just 43 P. Thanks for your thoughts.

    Not the 3 over 2. Looks like a small cut or scrape PMD

    Here is a pic from PCGS Coinfacts. It's a good place to check if you think you found a significant variety

    remember many of these war nickels were well used in everyday life so many will be beat up, worn and such yours is a well worn nickel with Post mint damage
