Coin collectors and coin roll searchers often ask if they should send their coins off for grading and the question is simple to answer. We have a formula of sorts that explains it best. Cost of coin to the owner + Cost of the grading service and shipping to the grading service + What potential grade is the coin? (use a coin photograde guide) + What is the potential value of the coin in the grade you estimate?
If the cost of having a coin graded is more than the potential value of the coin then it is not a candidate to be sent off for grading.
