Yeah I thought it was so cool because his face wasn't stamped all the way 🤣

But his face was completely struck. Then somebody abraided the surfaces and removed the metal after it left the mint.  All of the fine  scratches tell you that this coin did not leave the mint in that condition

I don't believe your coin was damaged in this way, But Dryer coins are a real thing. Read about them on the following link

Could be intentional work with a grinding wheel.

Tey are definitely post strike damage, exactly how the damage was done we can't say.  People can be very creative.
