IC 3893 is marked on the print of the original plate 3.5 arcmin north of Wolf's published position. Since other of the nebulae in this list are also off by the same amount (e.g. IC 3919), I think that the discrepancy represents a digit error in Wolf's y-axis measurement. The galaxy is the largest of three, and there is a faint star just to the northwest of the middle galaxy. The other galaxies are just northwest of I3893, but only one is (faintly) visible on Wolf's plate.
