Is this discoloration completely flush with the surface?

Toning and corrosion are different versions of the same thing:- corrosion.
Most collectors like attractive toning.
This coin has been in a more difficult environment, with differential degradation in different parts of the coin.

Looks like it was in a wet area for awhile. Corrosion.

Regardless of what it is, or the cause, I don't like it.
