That looks like a retained die break above the "T"-it would become a die break or cud when the piece of the die falls away. The coin may also have an incomplete clip. The wandering line on the obverse could be struck through thread if it's incuse. I've never seen a die crack that looks like these lines, but maybe someone else in the group has. Are the lines raised above the surface ot the coin field, or are they recessed below the coin field? It's often hard to tell in a photo.

Greetings, I loaded some pics of a Lincoln Cent and loaded them in the "DEFAULT" file. Is this "cud" on the last "T" on "TRUST", is this broadstruck and what could cause all the curvy lines on both sides of this coin?
