So if the surface looks bumpy like this, then that means it was whizzed? I thought whizzing would leave longer striations vs. Bumps.

I don't think it's been whizzed, it does have that look, but this date is also known to be pitted and rough, you can see the smoothing areas above Liberty's head and in the dark area on the left side of her right arm, looks like a deep gouge may have been worked on to cover it up. The comment from the "New Orleans Hoard" came directly from Larry Briggs Seated quarter book, he is the well known expert on this series.

I think the details grade was unjust. It does have eye appeal though.
