Please Read Before Posting A Topic

In the title please put date, denomination and type of coin design and a brief on what you are asking about.
In example: "1995 Lincoln Cent Missing 5" or "2010 Roosevelt Dime With a Line inside the rim".

All of this helps discern the different topics from each other and is much less confusing to members who want to help.
Topic titles like "how did this happen" or "help" often get ignored and lost in the confusion.

Toto, I can't see what your seeing . Can you show an angle picture ? It's definitely a double strike. Are you talking about a clashed die ?

The coin isn't a double strike, look up double struck coins at error-ref.com and heritage Sold error auctions. Study them out.
