There's a lot of the last number visible, but I can't be sure exactly what it is. The guy I bought it from had originally written 1952 on the 2x2, crossed out the 2, and wrote in 3. Probably not a 7 but that's the only other available number.

Anyone see any definitive evidence one way or the other?

Very nice, looks like a 3 to me.

Tough call as is. Taking in the height of the undeveloped digit. I'm thinking a 7, because as is, it seems the same height as the five with no sign of the mid section curving inward toward the 5? Thanks, Doug.

Certainly looking like a 3 to me. The clip seems to be affecting metal flow into the die.
The top of the number is showing the faintest outline of a curve from the die.

When looking at the PCGS site for comparison, the top of a 2 would be almost perfectly circular but a 3 would be slightly elongated like this one. Plus, the bottom of it near the clip reverses direction back to the east.

Words of encouragement are one of the major food groups.
We need to consume them regularly to thrive and grow.

I could make a case for a 2 or a 3. Fun!

I posted, early on, that it was a 3 but after looking at them together, not 100%. The last number has been altered, somewhat and makes me question my first guess. Still leaning towards the 3 but I like Coinfrog's statement.

Looking at the examples in that spread the 5 with 3 also matches better than the one with the 2

Sounds like the 3's have it! Thanks for all the great comments and detective work on this one. Just something more satisfying to have a date on a coin and this one is just right there.
