These are the pictures I took, I can't figure out if that is supposed to be a D for Denver but in the wrong place or? And as for the Cud looking things, is that just from age?

You have a combination of zinc rot and plating bubbles.
Spend it before it gets worse.

Ok, that's kind of what I was thinking, except for that one between the 9 and the 8, that is more of a cirlcle than a bubble. the center isn't raised up, just the part around the center. That looks like something else to me.

That is the zinc rot that I mentioned. It was a bubble that has broken and
now that the air is attacking the zinc, it is starting to rot.
