    It's a nice looking wheatie but it is a common coin and not worth anywhere near what the fees would be to get it graded.

    You can get a better 1958 D on ebay already graded..

    Just because a coin looks nice doesn't always mean it should be graded. The 58-D Lincoln Wheat Cent had over 800,000,000 coins produced. Not to mention in the late 50s, there was a larger pool of collectors, and saving rolls of uncirculated coins was a popular practice, hence the large quantities of uncirculated coins from that period.

    Unless I was confident in the coin getting an MS67 RD grade, I wouldn't do it. Your coin isn't close.

    This. You'd end up spending $35-40+ after all the fees and return shipping and everything, I imagine. Even if you went Economy tier. Which makes no sense at all when you can buy one already slabbed for less than half what it would cost you to have it done, as mentioned.

    Sure, it's a nice coin, but just not worth the money and hassle to have it certified and encapsulated.

    No its a nice wheatie but not worth certification its only worth a buck or two but by all means get it certified if you want.Not my choice.

    No, not to my thinking, given value to fees, et al.

    No point in sending it in. Common date cent, little to no value even in the condition it's in. Even if you were to have it graded you'd never, in your entire life break even or make your money back.
