Grease filled die. As much as I want it to be a brockage error, I can not tell without a microscope. Does look like an upside down, atomic bomb went off on the reverse.

IMO, that looks to be severe die deterioration on the reverse. Notice how the devices are melting toward the rim? Keep looking!

This has to be one of the best examples of Die Deterioration I've ever seem. I like this coin!

Where is Coop? That guy makes us all look like amateurs. I need his opinion, because he is the only one who took one of my finds and made an example out of it. 1941 woody Jefferson. My numismatic knowledge isn't fantastic. COOP HAS TOO MANY NOMISMATICS TO DEAL WITH. I'd take a break from all the BS too if I were in his shoes. What it comes down to with any coin......you gotta make it valuable. I've found some rare coins. Other numismatics told me that in the 30, 40, and 50 years of searching.....mine are invaluable. Why? Because they are unique, and yinz tell me otherwise. Afraid to accept someone finding something more rare than what you have. Did I mention it not graded? The PILLAR OF THE COOPMUNITY needs to support this fourm agin. I hope all is well with COOP. His knowledge is worth more than any monetary value.

What it comes down to with any coin......you gotta make it valuable. Who is going to war over a 1982 D small date that weighs 3.1 grams? The guys that snuck em outta the reserve. Well I heard form Bob that he changed the planchets. Well Joe said that Bob was gonna do it, but he chickened out so I did it. Then Who grabbed the Lincolns? No one. They went into circulation. I've found some rare coins. Other numismatics told me that in the 30, 40, and 50 years of searching.....mine are invaluable. Why? Because there unique and yinz tell me it's this or that. Afraid to accept someone finding something more rare than what you have. Did I mention it not graded?

The OP coin is a nice example of severe die wear on the rev die.

The first nickel as already mentioned is a VLDS (Very-Late-Die-State) struck coin.
The 1956 dime looks like a lamination peel issue.
The dime looks like it was missing a clad and during the strike, the capped die is thinning, thus distorting the strike.
The last nickel looks like a poor mix of the metals. (which doesn't happen as often on the copper/nickel planchets. But if it were a silver nickel then it would be a more common find.
