Usually wouldn't even gave this a second look but the die crack in question caught my eye.It starts at the NE of Lincoln's bust and travels west under th T in trust to the rim.

I am not even sure that is genuine, the crack is geniune on the coin, but I can't get around the thin font used on the coin. It is either a 1 of a kind error, or just a fake. Take it to a local coin dealer. They'll be glad to let you know if there is anything of value to this coin.

I believe what you are seeing is a linear plating bubble
Adds no premium value, it's worth one cent.
This error type occurs only on copper-plated zinc cents from 1982 to the present. Blisters form during the strike when expanding gas pushes up the copper plating from heat and pressure. A weak bond between the copper plating and the zinc core is a necessary prerequisite as are contaminants within or under the plating.
My goal in life is to live forever, so far so good!

If you don't want to regret your past, don't screw up in the future because the future, inevitably, becomes the past!

If it were a linear plating bubble, it would flatten under a tooth pick. But it is a die crack, it will not flatten. Easiest way to tell for sure.
