That weight isn't normal but the pitted look to the obverse makes me think it may have been in some type of cuastic (acidic) substance which dissolved part of the coin.

I think that pitting could be from a thinned planchet not filling the die but with those pictures it could as easily be acid damage. Clearer photos are needed to give you an answer.

The head area looks like it was affected by acid?

Remember, vimsww, we need larger photos than you have been giving us (we discussed this in the past). Keep trying, ok? And also, please crop your images to the edges of your coin. Thanks!
