Hi all, I'm thinking of sending this coin for grading. 1965 sms with some frostiness. There's an object going through LIBERTY. I don't think it's a scratch?! Is this worth sending and is this a MINT ERROR which gives this more or less value and would I have to pay for attribution service? Thanks.
It would need to grad MS68 or higher to justify cost to have it slabbed and I do not think it grades that high. Lest say it does grade 68,but with the strike through anyone collecting it for a high grade would not want it with a strike through. IMHO.http://www.numismedia.com/fmv/price...ices61.shtml John1
EDIT: I am not positive it is a SMS.Looks regular to me.

It is a struck through, how can I tell it was not post strike?. On a struck though after the strike, the affected area will show splash of the areas where the normal strike was. A movement of metal with a wave affect. This is not this way. Not wave as the object was struck into the coin, thus the design of the die, prevented a wavy. So this is the real deal. Nice find. But as mentioned, the price of slabbing it would well exceed the value of the coin. (Some most collectors don't know until after they have payed the fees. Nice find.
