Is the 3 in this 1823 Capped Bust Half Dollar strange, or just me.

Not a collector of CBH's but noticed this coin on ebay and the 3 looks off to me. It may just be a worn die, but I wonder. Opinions.

    All 3's look weird on 1823's! :D:D:D

    Looks original to me, nothing strange for a normal 3.
