Factory Mistake? Gen3/Gen4 Mix

I recently purchased a G23 at my local gun shop, and as they didn't have any in stock they ordered me a new Gen3 from Ellett Bros. When it arrived everything seemed to be fine until my roommate noticed that it was stamped "Gen 4" right on the slide. I do not have adjustable backstraps and everything else on the gun has Gen3 characteristics. All serial numbers match, but it is clearly a Gen3 with a Gen4 stamp on the slide. Not sure if this maybe has any value as a factory mistake? I called Glock's customer service and they offered to take mine back and replace it with either a Gen3 or Gen4. Thoughts?

Here are a few different shots of it. Clearly has Gen3 grip style without adjustable backstraps. Also has a Gen3 recoil spring. Not sure what else was changed from Gen3/Gen4 but those seem to be the most obvious.

P.S. First time uploading pictures on to this site so let me know if there is a different/better way than what I did.

I am sure it won't be long before another new GT member post pics of his new Gen 4 G23 with a Gen 3 slide on it......

I never had any intentions of sending it back...but just wondered if it might have any value to a glock collector as a rarity? I have yet to shoot it just for that reason

That's actually really cool. Might have some minimal collector value but don't hesitate to shoot it! Glad you aren't sending it back.
