Would these coins grade? New photos added

I don’t know if either coin would grade because of odd(?) looking surfaces? The barber is PL I think, but was it cleaned? The half dime looks like

either a proof or proof-like

to me. On the reverse bottom right it appears to have been struck through. If they would grade, where would they be? Thanks a lot in advance. Ray

    The 1892 dime looks polished to me. I don't see it straight grading.

    Not the 2nd coin so the barber no the other may have a shot but they look TB to me. But what do I know really need to see it in hand to know for sure.

    Hoard the keys.

    Half dime will grade for sure! 1892 Barber? Maybe? without another photo in a different light, i would probably take a chance and send it in!

    Barber no, Half Dime yes.

    Pictures will not ALWAYS show light cleaning.

    Post better pictures (clear, enlarged, straight on) or just submit them to the TPG... Really cannot accurately assess from those pictures. Cheers, RickO

    Cool coins!
    If not really sure, I'd take them to your
    LCS, for short.
    They might be able to help you out?
    Good Luck ;)

    It really depends on how many hairlines are on either coin. If either coin has none or very few hairlines, they both should straight grade. My hunch is the barber has too many hairlines to grade, and the half dime has a shot.

    I have added some new photos using my new camera setup. I think it will be a couple of years before I might get good enough. Comments appreciated!
    I don't know if either coin would grade because of odd (?) looking surfaces? I think the Barber dime appears proof like, and the half dime also appears proof like or proof. The half dime reverse has been struck through something. Please don't laugh at my photo setup, this is the best I have ever had. I used to use a cheap notepad only. Thanks for your input. If they would grade, your guess as to grade? Ray

    I think a halogen lamp is a bit much.

    Half Dime: yes, Barber: No!
