I believe its thought to be something else. Quote from Mike Diamonds Coin World article. See link that follows. Note image links seem broken.

Quote:
I can only surmise that this is a recurring die subsidence or soft die error (the two error types are closely related and can converge in appearance). While die deformation errors of this sort are usually restricted to a single die, they will sometimes affect multiple dies when there is a fundamental flaw in the die steel or when there is a repeated misstep in die preparation (annealing, tempering, quenching).

Coop shows several examples in the following topic.

Thanks, Doug.
Second opinions are always recommended. Rookies thoughts!
Two sides to every coin. The edge makes three.
Side Note: Sometimes I feel like a nut, sometimes I don't.

To confirm it 100%, it is indeed the Recurring Die Subsidence error. Nice find! http://www.error-ref.com/recurring-...dence-error/
