Was my ruling correct?

Once a month I direct a game at a local club and I must admit that I am not extremely experienced at directing.

There were three boards per round in this game. The players at this table played board 1 normally. Then, on board 2, West took the cards out of board 3 instead of board 2. West was on opening lead on hand 2 and made his lead normally. After the lead was faced, they discovered that West had the wrong cards and called me.

After hand 2 was over, I reviewed the auction to make sure it would have been the same had West been holding his correct cards.

Then I had them play hand 3. As it happens, East was on lead here. My ruling was that West's exposed card was an opening lead out of turn. 

Is this correct?

Yes
Yes, but...
No, and here's why
