Lam is on head, clash is above date and liberty. The thing I need help with is the thing at the L in liberty. Also may use some help with the straight line right on the left of the c in cent on the reverse.

@ofm, have you considered that this might be a cracked skull instead of a lam (or maybe both)? I can't really tell from your pics.

For the letter L, I think we need a close-up. Right now it mostly looks like damage, but I can't get your current images to be clear enough to know for sure:

Yes, slight/faint die clash on the obverse..aka prison cent
Yes to lamination error(after zooming in on it) in/on head and I'm thinking the L in Liberty is also part of the lam since it runs in line with the larger one. As far as the reverse goes, can't see it clear enough when zooming in, could it be a stain...
I'm by no means a pro and will never claim to be...just my 2 cents

Yes it most likely is a stain after a second look.

On the 'L', that is pushed metal from the area on the rim. Die clashes show on the fields as they are the outside faces on the dies. When no planchet is present during the strike, the out lines of the central devices will collide with the other die during the clash. So no rims would be affected. The are outside the dies where no contact would happen.

It is only considered a prisoner cent when the "bars" are present on both sides of Lincolns bust.
