From a local shop.

Did he sell you this coin as a 1887 ??

No. It was bought in a bundle of nickels.

I just want to know if you were "Scammed" by your so-called "Local Dealer".
No. All good there. Bought it in a bundle of nickels. I though I might have found something good.

I have a microscope on the way and will see if I can take some good pictures.

captnickm:
Just to let you know, using a microscope to take photos is highly discouraged. Many times, what you see through a microscope is not really what you thought. I know they don't like telling you, that you need to do the photo's again or not be able to tell what is exactly there (error/variety) or just PMD.
(edited to add the following). The photos you took of your coin were good and what they like to see. You have to remember larger is not always better,
