Hey there. Those missing initials are an eye catcher for sure.
But I'm thinking there are at least two things going on. A heavily polished and abraded older die causing very thin/weak devices. And it looks like there was some damage (ding or gouge) at exactly the spot where the initials should be, which is hiding any remnants of the initials. It would be interesting to hang onto it for the educational reasons. Cliff

A missing FG can't have an remnant of the FG remaining and this coin seems to have some left.
