Error when playing Displace

When you play Displace and exile a Province, shouldn’t you be allowed to get another Province as your card costing up to 2 more? Or if I use Displace to exile a Colony, shouldn’t I be able to replace it with a Colony? For some reason, Shuffle IT will let you gain a card less than than the exiled card or more than it, but not one that is the same price as it.

It's because you can't gain a card with the same name.

Seems likely that "differently named" is there specifically to avoid this interaction which would be overpowered otherwise.

You can get one with the same price, as long as it's a different card.  E.g., you can Displace a Duchy for another Displace, both costing $5, or even a Knight for another Knight, since they're all differently-named
