The weight is way off and it isn't correct. It's supposed to weight 3.1 grams.

The penny plachette would weigh weigh 3.1. Since it appears to be a different one it would weight different. It would weigh whatever that planchette normally weighs.

First,

A specific gravity test would rule in or out whether the cent was struck on a dime planchet.

A dime weighs 2.5 grams +/- mint tolerance. A cent weighs 3.1 grams +/- .13 grams. Because a lot of the surface is worn down,that would explain the weight loss of a copper cent.

The surface is showing an acid bath.

So the weight should be less than a silver dime if it were a dime. But The color should be correct for a dime or a cent. Which color is it?

It is silver in color. The picture is a little darker than the coin in natural light. The edge of the coin is silver also.
