It is PMD, there are a few ways for that to happen, a weak acid like pool acid can do that and recently Mr. Lange posted that long term emersion in a sonic jewelry cleaner can produce this same effect.

Curious though how it only effects one side? If it was submerged long enough to do that I would think it would be on both sides.

Looks like a winged liberty, or more commonly known as a "mercury" dime. Still found in "circulation" so,  great find!

Wouldn't that leave brush marks and scratches I would think 

You would think, but the speed and friction of the numerous, closely spaced wires seem to push the metal rather than remove it.  Im sure if you brushed it long enough, the design and  waviness would disappear

Obviously, it was minted in Annapolis, Md at the Naval Academy -- hence, the waves.  ;)  Now...about that bridge to Brooklyn -----
