I would appreciate if you could give me an idea if this coin is worth sending off for grading and what would be your grade. I have the complete set of 1953's proofs (penny,nickel,dime,quarter and this one) that I transferred out of the cellophane into holders on the advise of Daniel.
What grade do you think the other coins would need to be to be worth grading?

Thank you in advance.
I added a new set of pictures that I hope are clearer.
I thank everyone for their help not only on the grading input but also bearing with me as a refined the pictures.

Suggest increasing the amount of light, but filtering it to reduce contrasty glare. Filters could include tracing paper, light weight white paper, or translucent thin white plastic.

, To CCF , From what I can see , Looks like a PF-65 but I'm concerned about his crater face . Also is that a strand of loose hair on the left obverse field ?

Please excuse the hair in the picture. I posted another picture without hair.
