@boss, first welcome to CCF. Second, when I crop, enlarge, and enhance you pic, it comes out pretty pixelated. I think that I'm seeing a decent amount of circulation wear, which could explain a low weight, but as others have said, nice overall pictures of both sides will help us to know for sure. Thx.

Just a damaged cent. PMD
Sometimes people would grind a cent down to try and use as a dime in a slot machine.
That's when you could get something for a dime.

Intentional post mint damaged coin. No numismatic value now, sorry. Spend it and keep searching!
