It's a nice 1805 Large Cent unfortunately it is damaged. I am wrestling with the question of should it be certified? I am leaning towards certification, I have worse in holders. I have a few coins like this, nice, but damaged or scratched and I have always wondered if it is worth the cost to have them graded. Opinions?

A TPG is not going to like that coin. What on earth did that to the poor coin? It's a shame.

The overall condition and damage are beyond dispute. What benefits would you get from certification? I don't see it enhancing the market value.

Only if you have a special reason to have it slabbed.
Its numismatic value doesn't merit the cost of slabbing.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

IMHO, wise choice, Tom. If this coin was a rare or scarce variety, it would likely be worth paying the certification fee. As an avid collector of counterstamped coins, damaged/details pieces, there's but a small percentage that warrant the expense of certification.
