@perch, very nice example of die crack. They tend to start at the corners of the Lincoln memorial because those are areas of higher stress, sorta like this:

Really like the jagged one through america been through alot of cents havent personally found anything like this the multiple cracks are beautiful any chance at a full picture of the reverse. Your pictures are amazing btw....jealous of that more than the cent probably.Looks like 4 die cracks.

I see four cracks not three (counting the first picture as just one crack, there are actually four right there).

There is actually a lot going on in the first picture. There is the primary crack from the corner of the memorial through the bottom right corner of the I to the rim. Another crack branches off from the bottom right of the I through the top left corner and the the die is chipping at the junction of the two cracks. Another crack has branched off curving through the C and back to the rim by the first crack. Yet another crack has jumped between the two cracks. The area between this last crack and the rim is in the process of chipping away. If the die continued in service nuch longer the entire area between the two crack would probably eventually become one large die chip

Your first photo shows a Retained Interior Die Break. You might want to check out Cuds on Coins to see if it is listed.
