Or a shinny one.
Being dull on both sides just mean the luster has worn away from circulation.
@Harold Garrett! Welcome to CT.
I didn't dig into a Red Book (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Guide_Book_of_United_States_Coins) but I checked out Numista (see https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces3366.html). I see that there is a "copper-nickel clad copper" version (copper core sandwiched between two copper-nickel slices) and a silver version (.400 - or six-parts copper to four-parts silver). I'm going to assume you have the copper-nickel version (or type).
As stated above, I don't see any mention of a 'matte finish.' I think what you have there is a Philadelphia minted Type-2 thin lettering Ike dollar. And I think your coin has been circulated, and is a tad worn, which probably explains what you described as a 'matte finish.' Not an error, just circulated.
