Franklin half reverse - frost bleeding into fields ?

I was watching this and find the reverse rather interesting. It has a milk spot but also some frost bleeding into the fields. I have heard sometimes this is caused by the acid used in making frost on the dies. I have also heard sometimes it is an altered coin with a putty like material applied on the devices that is degrading. What are your thoughts on this coin?
