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.

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