Where did you find this? I'm limited in my knowledge about error coins but if this is truly a coin then it is really far out there on the PMD scale. Have you tried comparing it to another coin to see if it even closely matches diameter/thickness/weight? Perhaps there are some details that are evident in hand that do not show in these pictures. If this is a post 1982 one cent coin then I am going to say that this spent some time in the dirt and it has some advanced zinc rot. If this does not match a known coin in size then I'm going with a guess that it is some discarded part from an auto repair.

Zinc coins and commercial dryers, need I say more? Thanks, Doug.
Second opinions are always recommended. Rookies thoughts!
Two sides to every coin. The edge makes three.
Side Note: Sometimes I feel like a nut, sometimes I don't.

Doesn't look like a coin to me.

What does it weigh? Is it Magnetic?
