    your coins, do what you like, they are shiny, that's about it, and while "shiny" might get you some brownie points, the flat spots around lincolns ears are gonna get you AU at best for a grade back and a value of roughly 3 cents after grading.

    Now, People grade things for a host of reasons. you can do what you like as I said previously, Personally none of them are candidates for a high grade or even Mint state grade. and for that reason, not worth the expense to get them graded.
    However, maybe it was a gift from granpappy, or some other reason why you'd want to spend the money.

    Ill tell you what, split the difference, send them to ANACS, they have an authenticate, grade, and encapsulate 12 coins for $119 special going, including FREE return shipping, you can get a dozen of your speculations out of the way on the cheap ($10 each) and it won't hurt so much.

    offer expires on January 09, 2021. so you'd need to hurry of course, but ANACS is always running a special a few times a year. Anyays, it's somewhere around $12 per coin for ICG, and probably around $25 a coin for PCGS (and you need to a membership) or NGC $17-22 each plus shipping.

    If you're gonna gamble and play with grading, I'd do it as cheaply as possible and learn from it.

    But it's all up to you of course.

    If you want to send in 4 Lincoln Cents that aren't worth more that face value to PCGS or NGC go for it. I don't know what either service is charging these days but, you must realize that if you send in 4 cents it will cost you somewhere between $100.00 and $160.00 for that service.

    What were your expectations from this post?
    You’ve ONLY told/shown us that you plan to submit three or possibly four common-date, circulated Lincoln Wheat Cents as your 1st submission to PCGS. And with little more explanation.
    Most responses basically said that it’s not worth the investment.
    If you include your expectations with your inquiry, you'll likely get responses that are more helpful and less sarcastic.

    @Salvador Villalobos ...for the record, I am not a hater, I am a trainer/teacher/educator...and the 14th ( at last count) member advising you not to send these to a TPG for grading or authentication or slabbing (encapsulation).

    You will not get bad advice here. We don’t “work both sides”.
    I have given you advice on your previous posts, but calling us haters does not help you..imo...Spark

    Coin collecting is a learning process.

    Go and submit them.
    Then post the results.
    Then ask "why" you got the results from PCGS, and tell us how they may vary from what you thought they were.

    It's always good to put one's money to prove a point,
    then one becomes less likely to make the mistake(s) again.

    Wash them, slab them, laugh all the way to the bank. That is exactly what a TPG will do, if your lucky enough to get a grade. I have always said, the holder of the coin is the best TPG, in my opinion. Best of luck in your decision. Thanks for the post.

    Actually it should be "Cent" not penny. It says so on the back of each one.

    Hello Salvador,
    I really don't think our CT members are being Hateful, just trying to be Helpful.
    If you have coins that you think warrant TPGing, of coarse it's entirely up to your discretion.
    Stay Safe,

    Scrub them real good with some steel wool before submitting them. It’ll make em really shiny and the grade might go WAY up!

    I believe penny is appropriate as it is a common term for the one cent coin.

    Like how a lot of British people call the pound sterling “quid”.

    Well, Salvador has repeatedly been given solid advice here. If his responses continue in the same vein, I smell a troll. Be that as it may, I did learn one thing from this thread:
    "Pennies" IS the correct form of the plural for penny. @l.cutler, you beat me to it, and I suspect @potty dollar 1878 perhaps is thinking of the coins belonging to his neighbor, Penny Olson, hence "Penny's."
    What was new was that "pennies" is correct for a number of coins, while pence is correct for an amount of money.

    Now, the question is: do we say it correctly and sound British? My wife is tired of me trying to get the world to pronounce "err" correctly (NOT pronounced "air"). She says, "Go ahead and pronounce it correctly and let everyone else think you're goofy."

    We live in a free country, and you are free to do whatever you'd like with those coins @Salvador Villalobos. However, I should remind you that a fool and his money are soon parted.
