What do you all think it'd grade at if I sent it in?

I'll say MS-64/64 RB. Definitely not worth having graded.

1982D SDZ - GREAT coin, these are TOUGH to find with no bubbles. It's a good looking example with some minor flaws that are amplified by pictures.

The obverse device high points are weak, IGW is weak too. On the reverse STATES is weak and there's a little chatter in the field at the bottom.

These are not worth sending in unless you're 90% sure it would grade 68 or higher. The price jump from 67 to 68 on PCGS is insane, $50 to $900! Seems there are plenty of 67's on the market.

65RD or RB

To give you an idea - I have NOT sent this coin in for fear of a 67. It would be a complete waste of money and time unless it went 68 (or higher).

Check out what the PCGS coins look like:

To make things interesting - this is the SAME COIN but I shot it at a distance and cropped. This coin has a light, wispy, red layer of toning that I struggled to show with my normal pictures and lighting. This picture shows what can be done with light and distance from the camera alone....I NEVER use any post processing.

The top picture is closer to how the coin actually looks in hand.

Thank you very much BadThad for the helpful critique of my coin and photos.

I've gotten pretty good @ silver coin photos but cents (which I like to collect most) still eludes me.

As you can see they usually come out either too bright or dull. I'll see about getting some more adjustable lighting.

Thanks again!
