Worth 1 Cent.
A common altered cent.
FYI.. A Cent can't be struck with a Dime Die because it's to big to fit into the chamber during the minting of Dimes. It's just damaged after it left the mint.
When you understand the minting process and how each denomination of coin is struck you will know how impossible what you think happened would be.
@linatee74. Your cent is what is referred to as a "vice job." That is when two (or more) coins are compressed against each other by some mechanical means.
