1889-P Help

I won a NGC MS-62 1889-P on GreatCollections on Sunday, got the coin in today's mail.
Trying to attribute it but having a big problem.
It's a far date, double ear, double clashed, bearded, and has what I think are antlers.
I thought it was a 19B2 but the 19B2 is a normal date.
Any thoughts?

Mike

Mitch, thanks for looking but it's either of those.
Maybe I'll have to send it to Leroy, it might be a discovery coin
