I am wondering if someone can tell me if this is a die crack or something else?

Yes, that's a Die Crack. The 1983 Lincoln Memorial Cents were notorious for Die Cracks, Die Chips, Die Clashes and Die Breaks (Cuds).

I'm not so sure.
It stops at the rim; doesn't go to the edge.
IMO it's more likely a strike-through.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

No, that's not a struck through error. It's a Die Crack. It's raised. If it was a struck through error, than it would be incuse.
