It's called plating bubbles. It's very common on the Copper plated Zinc planchets.

I was thinking that many of the '82 cents also suffered from poor planchet preparation and as a result exhibit this bumpy surface.

Yes, and I believe those bigger ugly spots are called grease splotches.

Definite plating issue there. The supplier hadn't quite gotten the hang of it yet.

The problem was that the dust was on the planchets. When plated, it showed through the plating. Later a better technique was used to remove the dust. But you still see these from time to time.

As a conclusion it's a dusty plated LMC, neither plating bubbles nor grease splotches.
