Possible Metal Detecting recovery? I have dug quite a few that resembled that. :)

Very worn and environmental damage, as stated above. Nasty.

Clad coinage does not get that chocolate brown look through just circulation alone. It had to have had contact with something to alter the surfaces. I'm thinking environmental damage but perhaps, chemicals.

It looks like it was in the dirt or mud for an extended amount of time.
