Looks like a deliberate effort to reduce the diameter of the coin, perhaps for use in a dime vending machine.

Yes, it's damaged but it didn't leave the mint looking like that. PSD

@Chip333, first welcome to CCF. Second, your coin is damaged--this is not a mint error. It looks to me like someone started to reduce the diameter by running it some on a belt sander.

The edge seems altered after strike. Obverse shows a good bit of die wear or polishing. Does the reverse die follow suit? Is it showing any signs of a floating roof or weak (missing) initials? Commonly found on 1969 and 1970 cents. 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.

Could be. . . child scratching the edge of the coin on the sidewalk. (Once they burn their fingers, then they stop) Here you can burn your feet walking on a sidewalk. I have a laser and saw a temp of 157 degrees on the sidewalk in the sun.
