It will point out the details your coin would be better off it they remained. Mine cost $25 but it has a dirty little secret being fourree or a silver plated, copper cored ancient forgery which lowers its appeal greatly. I believe yours is solid (not fourree) and official but has nothing to offer beyond that. Would someone pay the $25 level? I would not. The reason I said the question of price is meaningless is that you have to find someone who wants a coin of that style and grade and is willing to pay the price. red-spork summed up problems but quoted numbers several time what I would expect. The coin is worth what a buyer is willing to pay. Where will you find that buyer?
On the plus side, the coin has a great story:
From an earlier post -
This moneyer has been identified as the "Snorer". He was called "the snorer' because he pretended to be asleep in order to facilitate his wife's acts of adultery. He did this when he threw parties for important men whose favors he sought. The story can be found in Lucilius. Cipius feigned sleep to avoid having to acknowledge certain actions of his wife. When a slave stole wine while Cipius was "sleeping," Cipius said 'non omnibus dormio.' (I do not feign sleep for all)
