I think the coin is just circulation damaged coin.
And
with CoinFrog. Rotating the coins to properly display right side up give us a better view without tipping our heads over. You wouldn't mount a new big screen TV on it's side would you?

@jas, first welcome to CCF. Second, this nickel looks fire-damaged and then someone used a pin to try to scratch off the black residue.

Outdoor find. This one will probably loose the surface and look dull through out the rest of its days. Spender.

. For sure it is PMD. My first thought is a camp fire coin.

Most definitely a fire damaged coin. Probably found in ashes of a campground (people throw stupid things into fires). Classic post mint damage ( PMD).

Other than the obvious poor condition, the first thing that struck my eye was the perfect "O" on the temple. Likely PMD and displaced metal as the O looks raised above the surface. Something such as a dropped letter would be struck into the coin and flat with the surface.

Could have been an air bubble in the planchet, heated up differant than the metal. I would think it would be bigger than that. Fire does strange things to metal.

I agree fire does do weird things to metals that's why a perfect o the same size and shape as in montecello seemed weird to me
