    I haven't seen many pennies like this, but can someone tell me what causes this to happen and does it have any worth?

    Thank You!

    Mega extreme road rash.. that coin has been through hell. I'm not even sure it's worth 1c at this point.

    I found a quarter that looked even worse then that penny a few months ago. Found it at an intersection in the crosswalk.

    There you go ... found in the road ... dead. Cars have run it over, gravel stuff in the road .. plenty of things to grind it down and fairly quickly. Just image if it was dragged under a braking tire .. at an intersection.

    Looking at it a little bit closer I seem to see a hint of doubling. Under stronger magnification I think I can make out a few typos, primarily on the reverse. Also I think there may be clouds above the memorial. Could be a mint error.
