I am a disabled vet and to take up my time I am starting to collect silver coins, I got this at a garage sale, I am wondering what grade and value you might think this coin is and if It's worth getting graded. Thank you.
A little hard to tell from your pics , Your first photo of obverse has the appearance of a proof. but because it has a MM that's impossible . reverse looks like a real nice uncirculated coin. So I'll just throw out a grade of MS-65 ?
It's a beautiful example and I think it would grade at least MS-64 with a shot at MS-65. However - it is not worth investing the money it would cost to have this coin certified, simply because it is not a terribly expensive coin even if it did get a higher grade.
Thanks for your service, by the way. I did my time in the Marine Corp and I really DO appreciate what more recent vets have had to deal with.
