    More likely a plating blister which would not make it an error. This is after all a zinc based cent with 8 micron copper plating. Note the other blister at the chin and the zinc rot at the date and mint mark.

    What about the double numbers and letters does that mean anything?

    On the date, it is called split plating which is not an error, just the plating was stretched to thin at that particular area. The area around the mint mark is beginning to rot at this area exposing the underlying zinc. The letters that I can see in your photo also appear to have plating issues. Once the copper plating bubbles it can cause the zinc to interact with the environment and zinc starts to bubble out of these areas making it look like all sorts of things, like doubled lettering and numerals.
