*** Edited by Staff to Add Year / Mintmark / Denomination to Title. Titles are Important! ***

I'm still learning how to tell them apart. This seemed different from the other coins in the same year.

That looks like "Split Plate Doubling"

I didn’t include the type of coin as I simply wanted an opinion on the possible doubling. As you can see I didn’t add a picture of the whole coin either.
I will take note to add all the details in the title.

Identifying the coin in the title makes it much easier for interested people and experts to find locate your question.

With this coin, you have what Crazyb0 said, split-plate doubling. The thin copper plating reached its stress point during the strike because of being too thin or too much pressure in the strike. When it splits, it does so in the shape of nearby devices (if any).

That's why it looks "doubled". The grey color is a dead giveaway because that is the exposed zinc core.
