It looks like it has been damaged by a washing machine or dryer, or more likely been hit wit a hammer or other tool similar, not a mint error.

It seems to have been struck with a quarter? Atleast thats what I see and the the last 7 in the date appears to be on top of that, or done after?

Damage is damage, regardless. The date was not struck over damage. This is not mint damage of any sort, it is PMD.

But that doesn't answer why there appears to be another image perpendicular to Lincoln..

No other image, just a horribly damaged normal cent all done after minting.

It's been beat to death. worth at least 2 cents for copper melt value. Who did it or why who knows. I don't believe the mint has a die that looks like your coin.100% PMD/ PSD

My guess is it spent a week in someone's garbage disposal. Egadz. It's destroyed.

I agree that it's all just random damage. The other images you see are just Pareidolia.
