What is your question please.
At a quick glance, all I see is a worn 1942 nickel with some Die Deterioration.

Bad pics and no explanation. Yet snither hidden talent. Think the letters may have md or just smashed. Idk. But I'm looking at the reverse rim area. Is that damage or all die related. Cud/chip. Seems like a lot of it's die

Well worn nickel with circulation flattening on the devices. (If that was your question) Otherwise, I'll have to agree that this is a type 1 1942 D non-silver nickel.

I think the OP meant "Yet another hidden talent".

It is a type one from Denver. Not a part silver coin:

Pre-war time strike nickel before the metal change happened.

Type two Mintmarks:

These had the part silver content on them.

1942 type one or type 2 nickels

Oh it is a war time nickel - the US entered on December 7th 1941, the mint just didn't change over to partial silver coins until later in the year. My guess is that they have to determine the composition before minting the type 2's
