Coin and Paper Money Collecting/1945 penny struck on dime blank

Question
Hi,  I have a 1945 no mint mark penny that looks to have been struck on a dime planchet. It is not magnetic and has high rounded outer edges. Is this error common for this date and what is a ball park value without a picture. Thank you for your time. JS

Answer
Is it silver?  The U.S. mint struck coins for other countries, th as t's why I ask.

Definitely not common but strikes on the wrong planchet do occur.

Are you sure its not a normal penny that's been silver plated?  Dimes are smaller than pennies.
