chicken pox bumps on my 1982 Cent ??

Thoughts based on the images? Rusted dies? Improper storage causing PMD? These were given to me as a gift the year they were minted. There was one each of large/small date from each mint mark, with each coin in a paper envelope, and I got a number of sets. They stayed in the original paper packaging until 5 or so years ago, when I rediscovered them while doing some storage area clean up. Most had taken on some remarkable toning, and I did consign a few, where I believe they went 65 or 66 RB. I can't recall if the ones I had graded had these bumps. If the consensus is that the bumps were as-made, I'm probably going to submit to add to my type registry. Admittedly not the most astute financial decision at the surface of it all, but the two I have left are both "monster" toners + they have the back story of having been coins I've owned since boyhood.
