I am trying to find out anything about this coin appearing to have a missing digit.

    The fourth digit was probably shaven down by someone, or it could be a grease filled die. Tough to tell because of the corrosion. I wouldn't think much of it.

    Welcome to the forum

    It appears to be a grease filled die but hard to tell from photos.
    Without a complete date, it really devaluates the coin.
    Also, do NOT hold coins in your hand like that. Lay it on a flat
    neutral toned surface when shooting photos.
