Default Weird paint marks

So I noticed these when I purchased the car, there are about 3 or 4 of them on the back. 2 are on the top lip by the tail light, ones by the drivers side tail light and the last is right under the license plate.

They radiate from the center, but in the center the paint is fine, some of them the paint shows rust underneath others it doesn't make it through the color layer. They are about 1" in diameter any ideas?

Again they were there when I bought the car used.

The marks you see are down into the paint not on the surface.

Looks like something corrosive was splattered on the paint.

It's a perfect circular pattern in both areas....and it's showing up where the surface is not flat.

Seems like someone got ahold of a rotatory buffer and the paint got too hot and took the clear coat off.

Burning paint on white colored car is not easy to see until it's too late. From my experience white hides everything clear coat related, better than any other color. There is no saturation to the color so the only way you can see defects is with lights and an extremely good eye.

I found the answer.

Someone egged the car, when the eggs break the shell scratches the paint in a circle like this.

Many are down to bare metal. Do a google search of egg scratches on car and you will see it.

Hot damn that's interesting. It's a pity there isn't a easy way to fix that.

That's crazy. Guess I didn't know eggs did that kind of damage.
