Sight wards worth 10 gold?

I just finished a game where I killed a sight ward and it was only worth 10 gold. I think it was from wriggles lantern, but I can't be 100% sure (I don't think anyone on their team had a sightstone or ruby sightstone). Is this a bug? I know they were going to increase the bounty on sightstone wards, and I kind of assumed that would include wriggles.

I doubt it was the free ward in the support tree (not sure how much that one is worth) because it was being used to ward baron late int he game.

sightstone wards kill gold are cheaper than normal wards kill gold

edit: also as you already stated it possibly same thing from the wriggles ( though the wriggles im not sure about) im 100% sure about the sightstone

Sight/vision wards are worth 25 gold, and ghost wards (from sightstone and wriggles) are worth 10 gold.

That's not actually true anymore. Sightstone and ruby sightstone wards are worth 25 gold now, according to the recent patch notes (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/news/patch-301-notes) (and testing in game).

I guess I just don't know if the wriggles was overlooked on purpose, or if they just didn't think to include it also. Kind of stinks to miss out on 15 extra gold when you use a vision ward. D:

I'm thinking this may be a bug, because I've been getting 10 gold for most wards I've been killing. Maybe it's always been the 60 second ward, or the ward from wriggles, but it feels like I'm seeing 10 gold more then 25 every time I kill a ward.

Wriggle's may have been left intentionally at 10 gold because it's not as commonly used or as powerful as sightstones.

Maybe it was the free 60 second ward in utility mastery tree?

I can't definitively say that it wasn't a 60 second utility mastery tree ward, but I have my doubts because it was used to ward baron at the 40-45 minute mark. I highly doubt someone is going to sit on a free ward that long.
