I understand now. Thank you for the answers. The coin is in beautiful condition but not graded. I'm going to run home real quick and take a picture and post it. Would it make sense to send it off to have it graded or is this one of those instances that keeping it in the sample slab is better for the protection of the coin and how unique it is? I literally searched for hours and only found 1 other coin that was like the one I have. Give me about 20 minutes and I'll have a picture up so you can see what I see.

Should I leave it just the way it is?

I suggest leaving it as-is.

There are actually collectors of the various sample slabs and the few I had at one time I sold on eBay for about $15 each - and that is more than that 1943-S cent would be worth.

Yours appears to be a relatively recent PCGS sample slab. The ones I had were earlier versions, here is one of them for comparison:

I feel that the appeal of this coin is that it's in a Sample Slab. For a 1943-S cent to warrant certification it would need to be at least an MS-67. It's hard to tell the grade from this image but I would guess that it's not up to that level.

The 'No Grade Code' of 80 would appear to be used for Sample Slabs.

I'd keep it as is. If you want or need a graded example you can find them without much effort. They sell for $100 or less for a Mint State 67 example.

Nice coin in an interesting slab! Thanks for posting!

A common coin in mint state - which yours appears to be. I agree with the others. It's worth more in the sample slab than out. PCGS certainly is not going to put very high grade coins in those slabs, generally 65 at best. So the value is in the collector interest in the slab itself.

I'm guessing someone would pay at least $100 for that on eBay
