I have posted this coin on the Modern Coin Error section, but thought I'd put it here as well to get grading thoughts on it.

It is a 1930-D Lincoln Wheat cent struck on a ragged flange. It weighs 2.79 grams, compared to the normal 3.11 grams.

I've taken photos in artificial light (the blue background) and in sunlight (the wood background). The artificial light photos show the red and brown colors on the coin as they actually are.

I think it's close to MS, but there might be some light rub on Lincoln's jaw.

Is an error coin like this, in this condition, worth submitting for TPG grading?

Thanks!

To me it looks lightly circulated - perhaps just mishandled as a curiosity.

Interesting, as far as grade, AU-55/58 possibly.

I can't speak for the value/sending into a TPG.

Not familiar with such an error, my guess would have been PMD.

Coin is AU IMO.
Lincoln Cent Lover!
