Acid etched, environmental damage from spending time in the ground, maybe just a simple layer of paint.   Lots of ways coins are damaged as they travel through commerce.

This is the Registry Forum, have requested that it be moved.

Your coin has been exposed to acid or some other form of corrosion so it is PMD.

Coinbuf beat me by seconds, glad our answers are basically the same.

Before I seen Coinbuf and Greenstang's answers the first thing I thought when I saw it was it was exposed to some sort of acid.
