1928 Canadian cent, you have a coin worth less than a dollar there. It is a decent circulated coin and by all means you should enjoy it, but would you like to spend $30-40 having it graded and encapsulated, when it is worth less than $1?
Except he's not talking about buying slabbed coins. He's asking about submitting a coin to be slabbed. That's a whole different thing, due to the expenses.
When you buy a slabbed coin, somebody else paid for the slabbing, so that doesn't come out of your pocket! But when you "make" one yourself, it tends to be a bit pricier. And it really isn't worthwhile for cheap coins, unless you just really want whatever it is it in a slab.
Not that there's anything wrong with cheap coins. Or slabbing coins. You just have to keep the expenses in mind. It might make sense on a $100 coin. On a $1 coin, it might make no sense at all.
Cheap coins are just fine to enjoy as-is, without entombing them in expensive TPG plastic.
Put a VF25 on it and sock it away.
@Valar Morghulis. Please remember that old does NOT equate to valuable. You have a nice 1919 Lincoln wheat back cent that would go nicely in a small collection, but nothing else, IMO.
