The pictures are a bit fuzzy, but if you are referring to the "doubling" around the letters and the portrait, that looks like doubling from a deteriorated die, or some other type of strike doubling, which is common on Lincoln cents, and is not considered an error, so is not worth a premium.

The surfaces have ridges because  of air bubbles between the zinc layer and the copper coating. These bubbled are ubiquitous and do not add value. I think some dates should be worth more money when found without bubbles. In recent years, they have gotten much better at preventing them, but I'm not sure what they are doing differently.
