There appears to be something (ink or whatever) in the same color above and to the left of the letter A. I don't think the factory printed it that way.

The card does look nicer than a 3, assuming there are no faint creases or anything we can't see in the scans.

Maybe it was submitted as a "no qualifier" card, so instead of getting a PSA 5 (MK), it got a PSA 3?

I probably would've graded it a 4, but wouldn't be the ugliest 5 I've ever seen by any stretch.

I suppose it's plausible, but I tend to think PSA would not give that card a 5 based on the corners.

I didn't think you could request "no qualifiers" on cards with marks?

Ah, not sure, so you certainly could be right....

I thought - at least at some point in the past - that there was an option to have the card graded without a qualifier. Here's another example below, with a pencil mark on the right border:

Looks like a PSA 3 (MK) or PSA 4 (MK). Possibly it's a straight 3 because of a "no qualifier" request, but I think with that much corner wear and with the stamp being as subtle as it is it's more likely they just missed it. Wouldn't bother me much either way, as I like period stamps on my cards; but I guess if no one else does I could get the card cheaper than $700.

Isn't it amazing how much mystery and fog surrounds what these grading companies do, to the point that really knowledgeable people on this board who have been collecting for years don't understand exactly how these guys grade. Incredible. Great business model they've built.
