So what's up with this obverse. Especially the cheek and field to the left of her face. Environmental damage? Just dinged up? The "U" in United looks funny.

Reverse looks ok.

From this pic it just looks like random circulation dings to me.

Too shiny.
I suspect it's:
-- been cleaned
-- been lacquered
-- the 2x2 has messed with the camera shot.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

My first guess.

What you see with the "U" could just be toning.
