I found this in my dad's coins and it looks like a relief map it's so bumpy. Not smooth like a coin should be, but also doesn't look like something happened to it while circulating. Maybe a smelting issue? Anyone see one like this before?

Yeah, definitely direct heat. Those silver aloys are easy to mangle. Not that I know from experience ...
- About two score and seven+ years ago, I began a Lincoln cent collection. I have all, most in AU or better & am upgrading to MS as possible.
- I collect all coins minted 1809, 1859, 1909, 1959, and 2009. Lincoln and C.Darwin were both born in 1809. The latter published his "On the Origin of Species.." in 1859, the Lincoln cent debuted in 1909, and after that it just seemed like a good way to show the evolution of US coinage. Most non-nums to whom I've shown these react with the phrase, "I had no idea!" That alone shows their worth.
- I've completed MS sets of Jeffersons & MS specimens of other 5 nickels; Franklins done. Roosies mostly done. I enjoy hunting for WLH and "winged liberty" dimes.
-- If I left my early Washington quarter book at one of y'alls house, please ring me up.

Didn't even think about a fire or something! Interesting! Still pretty cool and now I wish I knew where my dad got it. Thanks for the welcomes!

My Guess would be, Was Attacked by Godzilla with flaming anger I have found some ground finds looking not so pretty like this coin and a lot of the stores will not take them or damaged coins, they say take them to the bank.
