This coin has been damaged by acid and is not an error or worth more than face value.

I would have to agree with Paul and Daniel. I don't see any indication of it being silver, so a dime is out of contention.

Acid and being in the ground can have similar results to copper coins.
The obverse has signs of a bumpy grainy surface that acid can produce. The acid will dissolve at all surfaces of the coin uniformly. If you check the width it will probably be less than 19mm.
The reverse is showing signs of heavy pitting between the right wheat and the letters which indicates having been dug.

I've heard people would place the cents in acid (as well as take sandpaper to them) to get them to the size of a dime to use in vending machines.
