    I think your coin has been Whizzed on an electric wire brush.
    It causes the smear and loss of details.

    I've never seen a coin whizzed that looked like that.

    I vote for acid, whizzing is much more "rippley"

    Whizzing is done to make a coin look better, and in some cases to mimic luster. This is one of the photos you get if you Google "whizzed cent"

    What it is is damaged. How it got that way doesn't matter to me.

    What did they do, cover the wire brush with a woolen sock?

    I'm sorry, I should have said "improperly" whizzed. Acid will not roll the edge over to look like a lamination.

    It's an interesting appearance. I first learned adout whizzed cents from Fred Weinberg a few years ago. He explained how it occurred once.
