How can I fix this deposit transaction from 2017?

I've attached a screenshot to make this more clear, since I haven't seen this before.

I'm cleaning up a client's books and there are several transactions that never cleared his bank and don't show up on any statements.  He believes he's received the amounts, but I have no way of verifying.  

I have one that shows as a deposit on the invoice - see attached picture - and it's from 2017.  The $398 amount listed in the "Deposit" field is the amount that never cleared the bank.  The amount circled in red did clear the bank. 

I don't want to zero that amount out since it's from 2017 and will affect revenue and he thinks he actually got it, but how else could I clear this so it doesn't show on the bank register as an uncleared transaction?

A few other things - the invoice shows up as paid, and it's not in A/R Aging.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
