I have a few Shanghi stamps that seem to have a printed value over them but very small I have one that that has a print of 50.00 I was just wondering if that was a legit print or was that altered

I am not aware of any stamps issued by the City of Shanghai with this overprint (and none are listed in Scott's catalog). The United States also issued overprinted stamps for use in Shanghai, but none of them were 50.00. It's possible that the numeral you see on the stamp might be part of the cancellation. If you can send me a scan of the stamp ( I'll be glad to do some more research for you.
