Title says it all. I assume this is environmental damage. Could it be acid? Any thoughts on what happened to this coin?

Damage from probably buried in an acidic soil, but could have been subject to some other acid bath. Environmental post mint damage. No premium.

as well, especially if it has a red hue to it like the first couple of full coin images. It seems like the copper in the core layer migrates to the surface when in the ground.

Words of encouragement are one of the major food groups. We need to consume them regularly to thrive and grow.

Thanks everyone for the discussion. I really like the explanation. I didn't think of it being buried at first since the coin was so clean, but it makes sense.
