I found this dime and it looks like the letters have shadows. Is this a type of doubling or something else.

The coin is showing Die Deterioration Doubling. It's not an error strike. The dies used were in the last stage of their working life. Thousands and thousands of strikes lead to the distorted devices you see on this coin. It's seen on lots of coins and doesn't have any value over face.

Also Machine Doubling and the weakness of the devices was caused by die polishing. Note the flatness of the area on both sides of the torch? There was probably feeder finger damage, and when they polished both sides of the die, it reduced the fields, also removing the height of the device on the obverse.

Feeder finger damage:
