From the pictures, it is hard to tell what coin is what, but the flat ones look like they were placed on a rail road track and run over by the train.

Worked on the RR for half a century, that's exactly what they are. Sometimes I'd put a 50 cent piece on rail first, stacked with a quarter, then nickel, penny, and dime. Then push them snug up to the engine wheel and a rock in front of them so they wouldn't tumble, then slowly roll over them about a foot, flip them over, back up about a foot. Never did get the results I wanted, just tossed them into the brush. It was fun tossing them to someone else for them to look at, because the temperature of the glob was in the 170 range.  :)

I’m not sure what ya meant by the reverse of the nickel

Typo on my part. Meant to say we need to see the OBVERSE of the nickel. We have to see both sides to determine if it is a MAD or off centre strike.

It don’t have one

You mean that the obverse (front) of the coin is one of those images with the circular marks? If so, I'm afraid it's been subjected to severe PMD and of no value. Shame, as that one might actually have been a true error worth a little bit.

The severely flattened one is a 2002 Ohio State Quarter.  You can make out the IO, part of the Wright flyer, and BIRTHPLACE OF AVIATION.
