QUESTION: I would have sent a picture earlier but i was having PC problems.
Here is a picture of the date on the coin.


This is in fact a 1992 - what you have is known as a die cud where a small piece of metal gets into the die or on the planchet when it is struck. In this case it gives it the appearance of an 8 instead of a 9.

These types of errors are somewhat collectible so maybe this might fetch $3 to $5 on eBay.
