Here are a few large cents that I purchased years back when I started getting back into coin collecting. Any thoughts on grades, negative aspects that would have them fall into the "details" category and whether or not I should bother sending them in to be slabbed would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I can't see them. Take photos one at a time and be sure to crop them.

I'd love to see better pics obverse and reverse of each coin. Great early cents for sure!

Trying to figure out how to take more appropriate pics lol. I took separate images of each coin and cropped them in my laptop but that just resulted in dropping the resolution. Let me try taking scans in the notes app of my iphone.

I'm not sure if this is an improvement at all but here are pics of the front and back of the '95. Let me know if this is any better and I'll take pics of the other two as well. Thanks!

The 1795 pictures are better than the first group photo, but still not spectacular.

Whether or not to send to a TPG, well it depends on what your plan for the coins are, and why you will be sending them in. First glance, they all seem to have problems, either corrosion or unnatural coloring.

My personal opinion, I wouldn't send these in if they were my coins. These are perfect album fillers. Great coins to hold in your hand without damaging them.

That is what I was leaning towards. Ultimately at the end of the day the goal is to have a problem free date set of large cents that are slabbed. That might be a long ways away however :p

I have the coin at AG3 with some pitting, rim ding, light scratch and nice color. I am at 50/50 for a details or straight grade. Getting the coin in a TPG holder is not going to add value to off set the grading fees. If you sell it in a detail holder, it would hurt the resale. It is a nice coin for someone doing a low end album.

I am also working on a similar concept of a low grade, problem free date set.

ANACS has been helpful for the few I've chosen to slab, I waited until they ran a promo that worked for me (it's been a while as they have been running an ASE deal since Nov, but I keep holding out hope for my recent early copper and Buffalo pickups.)
My hoard of '82s is up to 241! 218 BC x 1, 118 BC x 3, 18 BC x 1, 82 x 1, 182 x 1, 282 x 2, 382 x 1, 582 x 2, 682 x 1, 782 x 2, 882 x 1, 982 x 4, 1082 x 1 1182 x 8, 1282 x 2, 1382 x 1, 1482 x 6, 1582 x 13, 1682 x 17, 1782 x 60, 1882 x 68, 1982 x 45

tough call on the 95 if it would grade straight. my first thought is no. there is large X across the reverse. the dig on the right field and left rim also need to be considered

i'd like to see the other two especially the 98.

Pics still too dark to evaluate.

Another try... At the very least this is good practice in the event I ever decide to sell any coins on eBay. I used a flash this time. I'm not sure how to improve the pics from being too dark besides that unless I mess with the settings for exposure, brightness etc.

A big help - these clearly suffer from environmental damage, and their identification by the experts will be interesting.

Should you send them in, expect ED and net grades, but paying the additional fee for getting die information/variety info may be well worth it -- there may be a diamond in the rough.

I couldn't see sending these in to be graded unless you're worried about their authenticity. Otherwise, these are great album fillers and I wouldn't mind having them in my collection. Good job getting these.
