@west, best practice is to start a new thread for each new coin so I've split this 1919 Quarter off of your other thread.

Beautiful coin!

Graded?
It depends. If you like your coins graded and labeled, the of course slab it if you want.

But if you are wanting to slab it to sell for profit, then do your homework. Find current market values (eBay SOLD auctions a a good way to see what people are paying). Sum up all costs (including membership if applicable) to the company for their slabbing service. Then subtract the market value from the slabbing costs to see if you come out ahead.

A general rule put on this forum many times is if the coin is not worth 150.00, you won't come out ahead.

You might also want to, depending on the above, see if just selling it raw will bring you more money instead of having to take out slabbing costs from a raw sale.

MS-62; good looking coin, could get upwards of $200 at that grade.

If you are going to sell it, I would certify it.

If your going to sell I agree on having them graded. When coin shows start up again to could try that first though. You could probably get what the coins are worth,(or close) without spending all that money in grading. The cleaned coins will definitely take a huge hit on value though. This one does not seem cleaned to me and MS60-62for me. I see a bit of rim damage and many small scratches and some contact marks. The lighting makes it a bit hard to grade. It might be worth it to get a better photography set up for sales. Or if you go to a coin show and auction you may get a good amount for many of the coins you posted. Seems like you aquired quite the collection. Of you plan on keeping all the coins I would say just focus on proper storage rather then slabs as it is a very nice collection, and it seems like you may have many more to show us. I'm enjoying your posts very much:)

Edit I posted a "texting" winky face instead of a smiley face. That could mean sarcasm or a joke in this situation but I meant it to be genuine.

Thankyou for for the opinions . I'm likely selling most of it with both kids in College / Uni that was the intent anyway , May keep a few. I have never been to a coin show . Covid shut them down I guess?

Coin conventions were closed during covid. They have been starting up again. There are many auction houses that would sell your coins for a fair price. But if your not in a huge rush I'd focus on a rough grading for most of them and try selling them un slabbed first. If your not in a big rush that's the best way to go I think. Know what you have and what it's worth(expect to get a little less) if you want faster for sure sales then grading would definitely be you best way to go.

A dealer will give you about 50-60% of what you could sell it for elsewhere. I don't think the coin is much over MS-60 depending on how deep some of the scratches are. If you can't actually SELL a coin for at least $150, or about $200 for common ones, I wouldn't pay to have it certified, unless by ICCS, where fees can be much less than US ones. I wouldn't cert it

Could be polished as it looks a little bright.

I think it's an au58 at ICCS.
