I found a 1978 dime no mint mark it weighs 2.49 grams on a 100th scale and don't know whether it's silver or another wrong composition

Is this a rare coin with any premium value

No 2.27 grams is the normal weight for a clad dime.  But there is also a tolerance range of +/- .09 grams so tolerance could go up to 2.36 grams.  So Brad you have a dime struck on a slightly rolled thick planchet that is .13 grams overweight.  This is most likely not enough to get any error collector "worked up".  When you get to .3 or .4 grams out of tolerance (around 2.7 to 2.8 grams) then you may see some interest and premium value.
