    Guess I should not have said off center, but the lower right side ( obverse ) does
    seem to be off some what....Should I keep it in the cardboard wrap? Or take it
    out of the wrap and go buy a soda?.....Only kiddin...You can't buy anything
    now-a-days for a cent....What do you guys think?
    Ohh....Also where is the least expensive place to get a coin graded ?
    Thanks ahead of time

    It's a MAD but not worth grading.

    Agree the coin is just misaligned die strike (MAD). Obverse side a very little off, and reverse just normal.

    Where to get coins graded in-expensively.

    PCGS Different levels of membership. Different tiers of grading options.
    Gets costly quickly.

    NGC Same as above. If you are an ANA member you do not have to
    join the NGC membership. I used NGC at the Winter ANA in
    Atlanta earlier this year (2020). Very helpful staff and the coins,
    10 of them, back in less than 6 weeks. And I took the cheap route.
    I am an ANA member.

    ANACS Went to the South Carolina state show last year in Greenville. ANACS
    was set up there and their representative was very helpful. I submitted
    35+ Morgans for their VAM revue. Received the coins back in under
    5 weeks. No membership needed.

    While PCGS is the preferred TPG's, in my eyes they are are expensive. NGC
    is comparably costly, but if you have a current ANA membership, that
    reduces the cost greatly. For varieties such as VAM's, I believe ANACS is
    an excellent value. I highly recommend them.

    Mis aligned die strike agreed. What is the context of you asking about getting coins graded" Was it this one or you have something else in mind?

    That 1939 looks to be in great shape, and that DDR variety is one of the most spectacular around, but... does this variety draw enough of a premium that you'd recoup your grading cost selling it slabbed, as opposed to raw?

    Very good question.....Thinking about not grading it and as SensibleSal66 mentioned, maybe sell it on Etsy

    The 1939 Is a nice coin. You will not recoup the grading fees to a point
    where it would be worthwhile. Send the coin to ANACS where they will
    authenticate the variety. In this case that is what matters. The grade of
    the coin is secondary. For real money when selling the coin it would have
    to grade at least MS 66 FS. Going with ANACS verifies the variety and
    the plastic protects the coin.

    That's a nice looking 1939 DDR. You'll never recover the cost to grade it so best to sell it raw. Mine is a little more worn than yours but it was in the ten dollar range if that helps. It's a nice Doubled Die coin but just not worth a lot.

    Thanks Collecting Nut, but it was brought to my attention that the value of a 1939 nickel that is in pretty good shape with DD on the reverse of Monticello and Five Cents was $1200 - $1400.....But even so, I am not going to have it graded.

    I just looked at USA Coin Book prices and they start a Good at $37.00 and a MS-65 is just over $1000.00. I wouldn't grade it either.
