Drier filter rusted out

Is there an issue with this filter being rusted out? The AC worked just fine. Sorry. this is the best pic I could get.

I assume you are talking about the refrigerant drier/filter if so then the answer would be no the exterior rust matters not

If it was in fact “rusted out” it would be leaking.

This one is not rusted out…

Thank you both.
