Well I received my double struck, broadstruck penny it now resides in a 2x2. I'm debating whether or not to get this thing slabbed and graded.

Would it be worth it?
Who is most reputable?
What's the average turn around time?
I have other questions but those are the main ones

Even though it is better than an average broadstrike,I don't think all the costs involved would be worth it.Maybe ANACS if you had to.

Probably not worth the cost.

The cost of TPG grading are about what the error coin is likely worth on the market.

If your motivation for TPG slabbing is a way for your heirs to sell -fine.

If your motivation is flipping the coin for current cash then IMHO the TPG costs are a waste of your money - all knowledgable collectors who specialize in error coins know what this is.

Nice looking, but once you pay 2X postage, invoice fee, and grading fee you could probably find one already encapsulated for less than that cost.

I agree that ANACS would be best on a Coin like this. Once you get to $200-300 minimum coin value and have a number of coins to submit together, then try NGC or PCGS.

All of those three graders are absolutely trustworthy although not everyone will always agree on anyone's grading.
