Is the last image that you posted a size reference to a normal cent?

This was dipped in nitric acid. A guy on Youtube shows you how. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6HGSClA80U

Would dipping the coin in nitric acid cause the lines on the edge of the coin Daniel, I'm just trying to learn, not doubting you.

I get you say you're trying to learn but you're actually doubting correct information and wasting time on a damaged coin. Even struck on a thin planchet isn't worth sending off for grading and this coin isn't struck on a wrong planchet. Once those are ruled out it is a must to move onto the next coin.
