At first look, it seemed like deliberate decoration (to the back of the CD). I learned some time back (the hard way) that scratching the back coat off a CD causes as much harm, or more, than the front.

Now I do have a lot of CD's with funky playing characteristics - they had been exposed to salt during the Superstorm Sandy flooding - but those are somewhat grayed spots. Those that play will occasionally have gaps of silence. That after a good rinsing at that time (salt water is pretty quick on the time scale of picking-through-ruins). (A lot of disk as my mind's eye mourns a bit)

A bit late, now, but would alcohol (rubbing or drinking) have worked better for this? Next time, try it and update the post.
