Hello. My first uncirculated coin. I was given this coin by a friend and wondering if it is worthy to be sent off and graded. I know it is not favored to post pics in holders. But I think this holder has to be broken to open it. Didn't want to do that yet. I can assure you that none of the scratches or smudges are on the coin. Only on the holder. Thank you.

That is a Commemorative half dollar 90% silver.
Right know APMEX are selling them for $28.00 so it
would not be worth the cost of getting it graded.

My first uncirculated coin.

Congrats on the new addition to your collection! It appears to be a nice example (no need to have it graded, however).

To help you learn, I wanted to point out that you have a Proof version of the coin vs. what is typically referred to as an Uncirculated or Mint State example.

Standard Proof coins generally have frosted devices and mirror-like fields (as seen on your coin).

Also, you'll notice a small "S" at the 3:30 clock position near the rim. It represents the fact that the coin was struck at the San Francisco Mint. In 1982, the San Francisco Mint struck only Proof examples of the Washington half dollar; the Denver Mint ("D") struck Uncirculated coins.

It is a proof. They also made them in MS. Only worth the silver content. I remember a few years back I tried to sell some to my LCS and to a pawn shop and neither wanted them for anything other than melt value. In fact, the coin shop didn't want to bother at all.Mine also had the OGP.

The coin that restarted it all, and not one to be graded. Virtually all the the modern commemoratives need not waste their time at the third party grading racket club.

I bought mine direct in 1982 and they eventually ended up in the 7070.
