PCGS Cert Number Does NOT Match Coin

When I run the cert number on the below coin, it comes back as a 1924-S dime. Any ideas why? Does the slab look OK?

    My guess is that it's a simple database entry error on the part of PCGS. Years ago I had a Roosevelt dime that came up as a Capped Bust half and I got in touch with PCGS and they corrected the issue. More recently, there was a thread on the boards that highlighted a run of commemorative half dollars where some of the coins had the wrong certs associated with them. Again, PCGS corrected the issue on their end.

    The ink on the label looks darker than usual, but that could have been made with fresher ink. Looks correct otherwise.

    Slab looks good! It has the tilted S on the reverse.
