1940 Walking Liberty with "3" on back in eagle

Hi!

I have a 1940 walking liberty in really good condition but on the back is a number 3 in the middle of the eagle. Does anyone know if this is something that means anything or if someone else out the 3 on there. Thank you!!

:welcome:

This is considered "POST MINT DAMAGE"............ as someone has hand punched a #3 in the reverse of the coin.

Referred to as a counter stamp and is damaged.
