At first I thought this was corrosion because of the slight pitting on both sides.
But the rim shows no signs of being corroded.
So, struck through grease on both sides?

@Spence

2.91g
I guess that says it all.
Environmental damage?

EDIT: 2.97g eyeballs failing

EDIT2: it was 2.91... scale drifting

Ok yep seeing as it likely is lighter than what it left the mint as, my vote is for wear over a massive struck through grease error. Let's see what the others say when they weigh in though.

Or sandblasted?
The edges probably would escape the wear.

I have seen other coins with this kind of look to it but I think I remember them having more detail in the devices.
When I say look I mean the pitting on the coin.

Thanks Spence and Petespockets55
