Keeping Coins in the Rolls vs. Having Them Graded

So I have some rolls of silver coins such as ASE's, Maples, Etc. I'm wondering which would be a better long term investment: having them all graded now or keeping them in the roll?

    Grading is going to cost $30-60 per coin depending on volume. Unless you are certain that the coins will grade high enough to pay for the grading costs, grading is not a good idea..

    I would not have them graded either. Just make sure they are in a quality storage tube or an air tight holder.

    Thanks buddy. Yeah i'm putting them in an airtight case with some silica. Deposit box already tarnished some bars I had gotten new last year.

    True. Really don't know how much these coins were jostled around. Guess I can always have the tube poped down the line and have em graded. Might cost more than $60 a pop by then.

    Don't bother. Virtually all will go 69 or 70 and the price difference is low. Not worth the fees.
