Ok I'm gonna hit the ground running. Uploading my first coin and asking for help identifying this error, if it is one. I'll probably be asleep when answers start coming in but will respond asap. Thanks.

What you see on LIBERTY is an interior die break and is often called a "BIE" because it most often occurs between the B and E and looks like an I. This could be called an "IIB." There is a site where these are catalogued, but I don't see a match to yours there, yet:

On the memorial building is a die chip and is the beginning of a larger die break that would then be called a "hornet's nest" because, well, that's what it ends up looking like.

And to CCF. Excellent photos by the way.I wish all new members,and some old ones as well would post photos like you did...one full coin pic obverse and one full coin pic reverse and one or two close ups as needed.Properly cropped and rotated too! Did you pre read before you took and posted pics?You get a big GOLD STAR right from the get-go.

It is a cud where a portion of the die breaks away. These on Lincoln's in the Liberty section tend to be BIE's, where the cud happens between the B and E. This one is in a different location which is interesting.
Also a nice cud next to the building. This is a good coin to have in a 2x2 holder.

As mentioned BIE obverse,Die chip reverse.The BIE on this year are not as common as the older cents like 1957s.I'd save it.

Cuds are when the edge of the die breaks away.

Die chips are internal breakaway points. A cud usually retires the die. Die chips can happen several times and not cause a retirement. So die chips are more common. Cuds are few in number.

Nice "BIE" (die chip) on a copper plated zinc cent. Die chip on reverse too as others have stated. Like coop showed - not cuds as that involves the coins rim.

Awesome. Thanks for the replies, great lessons in there. I said to myself from afar it looked like two "I's".

@levels - The date has been corrected

@John - I actually took the full coin pics before I read it here. I've watched a fair amount of YouTube videos stressing the importance of clear photos. Makes it easier to see for those helping.

Excited to see what my next find will be.
