Hello everyone. I have this 1957-D Wheat penny that, to my untrained eye, appears to have various errors. I've included quite a few photos to point out key areas on the obverse. I know the area that is north of the word Libery is likely to be post mint damage. Let me know your thoughts!

On the left side under "IN" appears to be post mint damage mark of some sort. The blob on the B in Liberty is a die chip, the mark you labelled as a crack across Lincoln's suit is too linear to be a crack, so it's probably a scratch. On the left side on Lincoln may be a small crack (I'd like to see it closer to be certain). The build up just right of the date looks to be a small collection of die chips (looks to be too broken to be a cud, but I could be wrong). Your coin is typical of the messy late 50's cents.

Another possibility...what you labeled as a crack, might be a de-lamination area with lifting at both ends or a struck through copper foil at both ends...Hold onto it for now until you gain better knowledge, I don't think better photos would help us. 2x2 and label it then re-visit it in a few months
I'm by no means a pro and will never claim to be...just my 2 cents

This is a fun find to dissect--thx for posting it @kg. The partially broken post on the letter B isn't such a big deal as pointed out by @merc. I'm not sure about scratch vs. lam across Abe's torso, but agree that it is interesting enough to warrant a 2x2.

Lamination error. (peel on the 7:30 area) Broken die post on the bottom of the 'B'.
