I came across this 1975 D Nickel. Looking at the reverse I can't tell if this is a plating issue or something entirely different. The letters are not effected by whatever it is which I would think odd if it were a plating issue. Hopefully someone can see the areas I am talking about with the low quality of my pics. Any reply is appreciated.

Can't be a plating issue, 1975 nickels are not plated.
It is some sort of damage. Hard to say exactly what but it
didn't happen during the striking of the coin so it is PMD.

Lamination could be possible I think.

Perhaps a thin layer/coating of a clear glue or somesort? Weight probably isn't affected, but what does it weigh? Not a plating issue, as JimmyD has said already, so I agree, post mint damage.

to the CCF!

. Kinda looks like a once buried coin,a metal detector find.

Certainly post-strike in nature. Exposure to a hostile-to-metals environment--perhaps some time in a subterranean setting--and 'heavy' circulation resulted in this appearance. Suggest not handling coins with metal tweezers.

Just not a variety coin. Looks altered some how. Just a face value coin now.
