Welcome and thanks for posting.
Yeh, looks like something struck it at the base of the 9 to give it that odd shape.

Yeah, looks like the same thing, coins get beat up in different ways and this is also post mint damage. Don't give up, we love answering questions and looking at images of coins to figure them out.

I actually thought the same thing until I noticed that on the exact opposite side of the word trust there is a mark on the coin and inside that mark is the letter R backwards?

Looking at circulated and damaged coins is like looking at the clouds, you can see all kinds of shapes in many sizes and orientations. However, these are not "hidden" mint error objects.
