grade a coin for you, you can post clear pictures here and get several opinions (even professional ones) to assist with that.
If you are looking for a recognized third-party certification service which will grade and encapsulate (slab) a coin for you, then I do not think there is one in Minnesota. PCGS is in California. NGC is in Florida. I do not recall offhand where ANACS and ICG are, but I'm pretty sure they are not in Minnesota.
There are no other American third-party certification services with any noteworthy level of recognition and reputation in the marketplace.
Edit- @Bradley Trotter pretty much echoed my advice above, but was a faster typist than I.
If I recall correctly, @lordmarcovan, I believe that ICG is located in Tampa, Florida, and ANACS is still located in Englewood, Colorado. ICG used to frequent the Greater Jacksonville Coin Club Coin Show, although the last few times I went, they weren't there.
It is clear from your question that you aren't familiar with the coin collecting hobby and its terminology. So, in order for us to help you, it would be most beneficial if you would tell what your goal is in needing a "grader". I say this because all of us are coin graders but we don't all serve the same functions within the worlds of the hobby and the hobby business.
So don't make us do all the work by guessing what you want, tell us.
Oh, those slow fingers.
