1000

explanation: The shopkeeper paid 200 to originally buy the goods. Then he was paid 1000 (duplicate), and he paid back 800. So till now he has no loss. Then he knew that the 1000 was a duplicate. He paid 800 of his money and the rest 200 to the other shopkeeper. So his loss was 800 + 200 = 1000
