    This 1988 D is the worst I have found. Are there any worse?

    @paddyman98 wins. I think he qualifies as having the most in the worst condition.

    I have a small number a lot worse than yours. Yours is pretty bad though.

    After seeing these I might send mine in to be slabbed as AU-03.

    90% of the pennies I find dirt fishing are wst worse, but that is still pretty yucky for not being in the dirt!
