    It was probably shaved down to use in a Coke machine as a dime.

    I agree. I see no evidence of a rim.

    That seems like a lot of work to save $0.09 :D

    Most likely not an error, just shaved/worn down.

    It may seem like a lot of work for 9 cents but this was done in an age when you could use a shaved down cent to fake out the coke machine and get a 10 cent coke for 1 cent. Back then 10 cents was a lot for some kids!
