The second set of digits on the date looks to be caused by a type of "false brockage or counter brockage" from the intruding metal disk used to deform the coin. It looks as if the coin was struck multiple times and the "planchet" or disk used has picked up the date and then transferred it back with just a bit of rotation. The distorted shape of the date and the shadow date are the same.

Other elements of the design are doubled as well, but I think it's the same situation as above.

I feel it's just intentional Post Mint Damage.

I'm almost sure it's intentional damage. It doesn't seem to match any strike error type. The flattened reverse "Just says no!" for me.
