    I just purchased this 1910 Wheaty and was wondering what you guys think about getting it graded.

    UNC Details, Reverse Spot.
    Not worth it, sorry.
    But otherwise a nice coin.

    Very nice specimen, but probably not worth the price of grading. That spot on the back looks familiar (I'm not suggesting it was ever mine); can you tell us the general source of that cent (how/where you acquired it)?

    OK, that's probably fair, but about as much as you want to be into on that specimen.

    Sorta what I thought too.. thank you!.. 10 years from now it could be a different story. As could the cost of grading.

    Probably MS60-Details at best, imo.
    The general rule I’ve heard over the last 6 years is the coin needs to be worth around $150-200 to support the cost of grading.

    NumisMedia/FMV lists a MS60 1910 BN at $18.00 as of 20 Sept….Spark

    Yep, all true. However, when someone wants it bad enough, they are willing to pay what they can afford.. not this coin particularly but I've seen them sell for way more than what they are currently valued at.

    …and when people buy from desperation their judgment becomes impaired.

    Not from desperation, just because they want the coin and it's readily available to them and they have the money, is what I gather from what I've seen.

    Still a nice coin but I'm thinking AU details. It still has some luster. I would put the value at about $20. Not a coin to have graded. If it were the VDB variety it would have a bit more value.
