Neat damaged Lincoln. Diameter is the same as a dime and weight is 2.91g. Not sure a dryer could do this to a coin but it's along those lines. Rim is very thick so maybe spooned and then dryered?

Hard to say whether just a dryer coin or something else. I kinda like on the rev where you can read the inscription through the layer of metal folded over from the rim.
