If it is an early die state of 1944-D OMM-002, it would be mated with the first reverse die. That reverse has shallow NE-SW scratches from the left side and bottom of the vertical of the "T" in CENT.
On the obverse, even in an early die state, there should also be some evidence of the curved die scratches to the east of Lincoln's chin. If the die state is very early, the die cracks on either side VDB and the scratches along both sides of the upright in the "T" of LIBERTY probably do not exist.
On the obverse, I clarified the OPs first photo, and I see scratches in the field that have the right curvature, but are too far from the chin to be the diagnostic scratches. A sharper photo could help, unless wear has obliterated the scratches.
Would it also be possible to see high resolution closeups of the following areas:
the area close to Lincoln's chin (marked on the clarified OPs photo uploaded below)
VDB area to the rim
"RTY" of LIBERTY
"NT" area of CENT
