Looks like someone has tried to clean or possibly some thing has scraped over it.
In any case it is PMD, done after it left the mint so not an error.
If you wait, all that happens is you get older.

To me it looks more like a slot machine coin.

It's Post Strike Damage. This happened after it left the U.S. Mint. Someone scraped it.
