Looks like an acid dipped Mercury dime. Post Strike Damage ( PSD). Not an error coin, sorry. Keep it, since it's still worth Silver melt value.

When that happens, the resulting coin is flatter and much thinner than it started. Most often out of round too.

Ok well then it has lost about 60% of the weight that it had at the mint. This seems like extreme wear or more likely a nitric acid bath.

Winged Liberty dime (Mercury as noted above) that's missing lots of detail.

Could this just be from just wear?
