This coin caught my eye because it is cupped on the reverse. I thought it was an immediate PMD,But then I looked at the obverse and didn't see any damage besides the VLDS.So the obverse showed lines that correspond to a nickel rim. So maybe this is a coin that was stuck to another coin during minting. Not sure any advice is greatly appreciated!

Looks like another nickel was hammered or pressed onto the reverse - like your pictures show but PMD.
Good eye though spotting that!

Thanks,That's what I thought,But the coins I've found like this before show some sign on the other side of being pressed or hammered. Just figured I'd post to make sure.

I agree with Mark on this,clear metal displacement from force of impact. PMD

Yep, the obverse could have been on a piece of wood or something that would absorb the impact on that side.

Sorry to rehash this topic,But is the a fore mentioned possible? If so does anyone have an example I could see? I just found a quarter that has similar mark as the western most red arrow,no cupping and no reverse damage. I'd just like to check it out without making another thread. Thanks in advance!

The raised rim affects the coin from contact with another coin and a hammer that smacked it probably between two pieces of wood. Note the marks on the rim of the coin. If it is damaged, then those areas would also be affected. If you see that also on the rim, then it was damaged. Not a mint error.
