It's not a mint error, but post-mint damage. My assumption would be someone fired it with a blowtorch. This creates "ripples" on one side like those we see here, while leaving the other side undamaged.

That is interesting damage. My guess is that this is a '44.

I'm thinking a point heat source applied to the obverse at an angle--like a hobby-class butane torch; long time ago. We've seen a few of these over the years.
