You're being superficial and you should just keep it
Or, contact them, tell them they sent you the wrong thing, they'll send you the correct one and probably an RA tag to return at no cost to you.
Either way, it's not brain surgery. Just decide what you want to do and do it. And it already sounds like you KNOW what you want to do....
So send it back.
