If you are referring to the 8,that is what is called a counterstamp.
Someone has intentionally punched it on the coin.
I take it that something is blocking the top and bottom of the coin in the photo.

PS-
In the future, please orient and crop your photos as per CCF instructions.

Please let us know what you are seeing as the 'error' -

I agree that the '8' seen in your coin is a post-mint counterstamp ... what else are you seeing?

Finisher to CCF...

It seems like you are holding your coin which makes your coin looks like it had been clipped. You might want to put down your coin when taking pictures. Develop a habit to picture the obverse (front) & reverse (back) of your coin for the experts to see. Too, remember to write a note about the information on your coin, magnify the part which you need the experts to look for. Welcome & enjoy the hobby.

To CCF! As said, it's not an error. It's a counterstamp.

Here's a cent with a similar counterstamp that I found a while back.
