Are you saying this went through a dryer? Asking because I am not familiar with that term.

Yes, a commercial dryer.  See the following web pages and a related topic about these ...

Although I associate it more with the mushy appearance, and possibly the rims being flattened a bit, but not really so much from the edges being pushed in slightly which I tend to associate more with spooned coins.

What are the odds that a coin will be a tight fit between the inner and outer tubs of a dryer and become jammed in that position such that it rolls around perpendicular to the tubs while squeezing the coin?  So it's really just possibly loosely rolling around as in the diagram, if it even gets in that position at all.

That is the term we use when a coin is worn in this manor. Looking at the edge of the obverse and the center of the reverse you can see it has been stuck in some type of machine where the coin has been spinning around.
