Looks like some sort of environmental damage.
No matter what caused it, it is still PMD as that
couldn't have happened during the striking of the coin.

Agree, environmental damage--perhaps exposure to a mild, corrosive environment. I've seen these in the past.

It's like it's matted with sand and know the sand did not get on there by itself

Doesn't really matter how the sand got on there, the fact that it happened after the coin was struck means it is damage.

Environmental damage. Rough surface probably from acidic exposure, maybe from being buried in soil. Maybe a metal detector find at some point. Bottomline: post mint damage ( PMD). Value: usually around 3 cents being the wholesale price for wheaties.
ça va bien aller
