    How do you determine which coins are worth getting graded?..I want to get this one graded 20190910_113322.jpg 20190910_113355.jpg but I think the discoloration would affect the grade...

    Even in slightly better condition, the coin wouldn't be especially valuable.
    With a mintage of 1.8 billion, it's still quite common in circulation today- sometimes in nicer shape.
    In order to have a valuable 1962 D cent, it would need to be at least MS64.

    I personally would not send that coin in. I would, for now, use it as a place holder for your collection, do some coin roll searches to "dig" up some nicer 62-D's. Once you get some in your possession, stare and compare against your coin that you would like to get graded. That's my 2 cents (you see what I did there)

    The discoloration is the least of your worries on this coin. Color isn't as big a deal (TPG's have straight graded "toned" coins since forever...) as is condition, & as already pointed out, this coin lacks the MS condition it would require to make grading feasible.
