    Environmental exposure. Likely mild acidic soil for a few years.

    Time for more coffee.

    And why is there a “3” punched in that reverse side with Lincoln Memorial on it?

    Because someone did it post mint.

    And, yes, the coin saw some time in a harsh environment before you got it. None of what you believe to be errors occurred until after the coin entered circulation.

    Damage after it left the mint. I'm looking at your pictures, but don't see a 3 anywhere.

    This coin was exposed to the elements or chemicals, then thrown back in circulation. I find these pretty frequently.
