I'm new to the Coin World, and found this in a dime roll. It's in pretty good shape...guesstimating MS65/66 range. Worth shipping off for grading, or just put it up on auction as raw?



Updated to a clearer image of the date/mint mark...

2 of three photos do not show nothing, to close and blurry, The 1995P with the cost of the grading will be minus.

I know the 3rd pic isn't great - updated to a better image. There aren't really any defined edges to anything beyond 'LIB' and the rim on the obverse to bring into focus. The entire face of the coin is blurred/'watered down' looking to the point that the 'TY', mint mark, 'ST', and '5' are nearly indiscernible unless it's angled just right so the light reflecting highlights the dull, 'washed out' edges...the first pic is just as clear of a photo as the second(reverse side).

. Great find. Not worth sending in,I just checked eBay sold values and it was around $40. It would cost you more to have slabbed.

It is struck through a deteriorating die cap. This coin is not a die cap. But again, struck through a die cap. Big difference:

Note the shape of where it fit over the die? That is what they look like when they cap the die. Your coin was struck through a capped die.
Other examples of removed die caps:
