Die Deterioration issue.
Not a Doubled die variety IMHO.
I am not seeing the die scratch on the N of CENT on your coin. It may be just the lighting in your photo. Your coin will have to match perfectly with the photos on VV to be a DDO-001
Your photo do not give enough detail to make a positive ID. You would have to provide zoomed in photos like the ones on VV.
look at that long ridge going through the IN and GOD.
That raised ridge / hump is called a Ridge Ring.
A Ridge Ring is indicative of Die Deterioration.
When it goes through lettering, usually the IGWT and left side of LIBERTY, also of the date and mint mark ....
you'll see oddities that look like doubling, or raised sections (from the Ridge Ring).
It's actually easier to identify errors and varieties *after* you also learn about die deterioration, minting process, etc. Otherwise any "oddity" people think are related to an error/variety actually aren't.
Also, *always* show the entire Front and Rear of the coin ... like, all of it not some or most of it. I don't even know what year this coin is .. but it's probably a zincoln.
I highlighted the outer edges of the Ridge Ring here, but it goes further right and goes down through LIBERTY too.
