1963 Proof. Pictures don't do them justice. I bought a huge box of wheaties, including about 30 1909 vdb (no S).

They have been sitting for about a year, I sorted a lot but there was a bunch I hadn't touched.

Then today, came across a roll in clear tube that said Proof on it.

Questions:
1. Leave in tube or put in 2x2s?
2. Worth sending for grading/slabbing?
3. Good value?

Proofs in a tube have almost certainly acquired a few contact marks, hence at the very best would be a lower grade of proof. So At least put them in 2x2s to prevent further damage.

I agree with 2x2s, but would add for you to wear cotton inspection gloves and avoid breathing on them as you don't want any saliva droplets on those nice shiny surfaces.

Reverse is a beauty but obverse looks like it has a lot of field contact specks . I never did like proofs in a tube for this reason . Still nice pick up on that box of wheaties .

If you sent these in for grading, you would end up way in the hole. Do the homework on prices for grading vs. what the value of one of these is.

Slabbing is not the automatic thing to do with every good looking coin. After checking prices and value you will see its not worth your money to slab things worth less than $100-150.00.

Great input, thanks. I will put in 2x2s. Seems like only worth $1 or so each and not worth slabbing. As always, great advice, much appreciated!
