I can't seem to find this in mathlib at the moment.

Perhaps
https://leanprover-community.github.io/mathlib_docs/order/order_iso_nat.html
is useful. It contains related results. For example, your result is equivalent to the fact that the embedding constructed in docs#nat.order_embedding_of_set is unique.

Another phrasing: there exists a unique strict-mono function (or, a unique order-iso) from to itself. It seems mathlib has these for fin:
docs#fin.strict_mono_unique
docs#fin.order_embedding_eq
but I don't see the result for .
