I haven't seen this effect on a coin yet except for a Franklin cameo. Any help understanding this is appreciated

Perhaps some die deterioration?

This also happens when coins are dipped

If this coin has been dipped PCGS didn't pick up on it. Course that may not mean much. I'm kinda going with spence right now with the die deterioration. There also seems to be some beveling around the edges. The obverse is showing the same effect though not as severe. I saw this characteristic on a lot of Morgan dollars.

I am thinking that it's both Die Deterioration and a rusted die issue.

Thanks Errers and frog. I assume neither is attributable correct? On some Morgan dollars moderate corrosion may be listable.
(Moderate [corrosion] is called 'granularity, somewhat listable when the devices start to spread into each other)
