Another coin roll hunting find. I can not figure out what kind of error is on this 1968 penny. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I'm on my cell phone and the pics appear dark but it does appear to be a folded rim above TRUST as Coinfrog said. The area above GOD looks like it may have been caused by a deteriorated die as it appears there are numerous flow lines in that area. Maybe viewed on my computer I could tell better. Just my opinion.

All the 1968 cents look like that. (even proof cents) As the die ages, it continues to invade the rim. Thus the new master die for the 1969 cents:

Note how the how much the design had swollen. It was time for a new, new master hug in 1969. Note how much smaller the bust is. This is not a redesign, just an new master hub. This continued to do the same thing and later they made another one.
