Yup, it looks like the coin has been shaved a bit.

Dime sized? Maybe somebody was trying to fool a vending machine.
Agreed, assuming it's now the same size as a dime. I once cleaned out a pay-phone depot when the phones were being removed from service and along with the phones the company had collected all the bootleg coins that had passed through the payphones, there were buckets of pennies that had been shaved down to the size of dimes - as well as foreign coins the size of quarters and dimes. A common scam back in the day.

Interesting find.


Shaving a cent down to dime size would seem like a lot of work to me to get the cent to be in such a round shape to be a viable dime.
