    I agree with Chris.

    Welcome to coin talk. This is a common date, circulated Jefferson Nickel with a mintage of 1,028,622,762. Even in Uncirculated, MS-60 state it might be worth
    25 cents. No not worth sending in for grading.

    The grading companies do not recognize the full step designation on circulated coins and you don't get partial credit for being close. That coin is a nice hole filler in a folder collection.

    It's a good piece for having 56 years on clock, but probably not worth submission to grader...

    Not worth the grading costs. '64 was a big minting year for all coins.

    If it came back MS-65 ( And I don't think it would) it would be worth $20, and it would cost you $25 to $30 to get it slabbed.

    Hi, and welcome.

    @Conder101 is right. There's no way that would grade as high as MS65 (if MS at all). And if anything, I think his estimate on the cost of slabbing is on the conservative side, and may not include invoice fee, insurance, and and shipping both ways. So I wouldn't waste $35-40++ on slabbing a coin that in your best case scenario is going to be worth just a few dollars at most (if even that).

    That's not to say you shouldn't appreciate and enjoy it for what it is. It's just not a very good TPG (third-party-grading) candidate, is all.
