    Not worth grading until ms-67. I'd not send in.

    All though it's a nice coin IMO I don't believe I would spend the money on grading it. JMHO

    Nope. IMO a coin should only be sent in for grading if you think the value of the slabbed coin will be enough to cover the ~$30 cost of grading. Although your cent is pretty, even if it grades high, it will be foolish since it's bound to be worth no more than a couple dollars.

    I think the best thing for you right now is to learn more about numismatics before you even consider sending a coin in for grading.

    Slabbed coins are everywhere. They benefit the TPG companies more than anyone else. Those who think they guarantee authenticity have not been burned by Chinese fakes in fake slabs yet. Examine the coins and learn to grade them yourself. Then if you still must send them in for grading be prepared to post your guaranteed MS-68 coin on here that comes back as an MS-63 that is not worth the cost of slabbing.

    I would grade your coin 64 or 65 from those images. It would need to be a 68 or better to make it worth the grading fees.

    Most large lots that are sold are impaired in some way with scratching, toning, weak strikes, etc being the most common drawbacks. If you bought those coins individually and selected each one for quality they may have nothing wrong with them. Spending $30 to grade and slab a $35 coin (if you are right and lucky) makes no sense. Slabbing a coin worth $100 might make sense if you know of a buyer at that price. There is a major difference between price guide prices and real world auction prices. It's very easy to go over board gathering errors and varieties only to learn that you have no way to monetize them. Good luck.
