This is an plating bubble in an odd place and there's some plating disturbance or push doubling on the letters and date digits.

I agree but it does appear to have some thickness to LIBERTY (left side of Y appears thicker than the right) and possibly on the date indicative of a doubled die.
Can you post images of both sides of the coin and try to reduce the glare (very difficult with shiny ones).

Here is the link to doubleddies.com to look closer at 2017 shield cents.
Good luck.
ps. I will add that is odd that the plating blister is does not extend past the edges of the B.

Thanks for the additional images. But I can't really tell about the B.
LIBERTY is definitely interesting though from a DDO standpoint.
