    TOO many CAPS! That being said, looks like your coin was ground down to perhaps imitate a dime in a vending machine. Pretty common.

    The rim is worn away. That would make it weigh less. No need for gloves for that altered cent.

    i say the .5 grams have been worn away. Also it seems to be a bit smaller like the rim was worn off as well.

    The scale says 2.95 which is close enough to tolerance.
    2.98-3.24 considering how old and worn it is.

    The first two scale photos show normal coins, I assume. The third shows a cent measuring 2.53g, and it's clearly had its rim shaved.
