Not quite sure if this just damage or LDS (or something else?) Any thoughts as to why it is likely one or the other?

What does the edge look like? Might be an early stage dryer coin.

Looks like four years of hard livin'. Just damage in my opinion.

The edge is nearly flattened, with only shallow grooves of the reeding. That's a pretty good indicator for damage too, I imagine lol. Thanks!

Missing reeding is common on coins that spent time in a casino, however I would think few casinos have had dime slot machines since 2015. An alternate explanation is an acid bath that ate away at the metal.

@nick, in my (admittedly second-hand) experience with seeing acid-bathed coins, the surface texture isn't smooth but rather rough. I have doubts of acid causing this damage, but am interested to see what others think.

Note that where the design elements meet the fields there remains a distinct differentiation. Since those protected areas have not changed it indicates simple circulation.

I was already familiar with the idea of dryer coins, but that link is super helpful, thanks!
