I found this 1998 D LMC with what looks like the start of columns in the upper part of bays 11 and 12. Outside of that it looks like a reverse clash that you would normally see on the obverse. Insight please!!

These are fading die scratches. On the die when the coin is polished, they sometimes use something that is very abrasive, like metal brushes. These can leave scratches into the surface of the die. The scratches are incuse. On the open fields, they flatten faster than they do when they are next to a device, or inside of a device. (The later lasts a lot longer) But because these are also above the Memorial building, it tells me that they are die scratches. If there were a hubbing issue, the bays would be affected in the pattern of the reverse. I'm not seeing that on your coin. More as I mentioned deeper die scratches that were/are felt on the die.

Jim did you notice the image? It is not one of your images, but it is all three, layered over each other to make a larger image.

They didn't need any adjustment for size. You must have not adjusted the zoom/height on them.
