Default Rear wheel bearing swap help

Hi,
I was swapping my rear wheel bearings, and this seal came out from somewhere and I don't know where it goes. Here are some pictures of the seal on the right:


I don't think it's the seal on the inner/diff side of the knuckle, because that's still there.

I'll also add that in the process or removing the old bearing, I used a hammer on my 29 mm socket, which consequently got stuck in one of the inner races of the old bearing. The interesting thing about this is that you can then use the old bearing to evenly hammer in the new bearing, using the old bearing as a buffer, as not to mess up the new bearing.

Upon disassembly of the other hub/knuckle, I figured out where it came from.


It came from the old wheel bearing. It fell out because of my beating on the other end
