Personally, I think not.
Yeah go ahead and pay for them to be graded and slabbed, what's the odds of any of these pocket change coins being different to the one that was struck just before it.
The TPG feed on the gullible.
Do you possess the experience to properly grade coins? Do you trust your judgement? Slabbing stuff is expensive. Got's the deep pockets? Don't drink the Kool Aid.......
Couple of things. A slabbed coin is meaningful to a collector. Not so much to a non-collector. You will spend $30.00-$50.00 per coin having them slabbed. While it will protect your coin for posterity, the slab will not add value to the coin..... However I do believe that slabbing family heirloom coins is a worthwhile goal. And as an aside, you can get your own slabs from numismatic sources on the web and slab them yourself for pocket change.
To politely answer your question the answer is no.
There needs to be an added value to the coin gained by grading or certification before it becomes justified, IOW just because it’s slabbed doesn’t make it worth more simply by virtue of that fact.
