Would NGC grade this Details Rim Damage?

Got this at estate auction for almost melt value. I want to have it graded but anxious JT will come back Details Rim Damage. Thoughts?

    100% certainty; recent and major damage.

    Don't waste your money getting it slabbed. It would get a details grade for that rim damage and it would still be considered bullion gold.

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.

    I think this can be called with 100% certainty, details grade.

    Put it in a bezel, sell it as jewelry

    Not a gold collector at all, but why is it grey/silver color under the rim damage?

    It weighs correct, and isn’t magnetic and has correct diameter. It also matches what I see on VAM world. Is there something in particular that makes you think it is counterfeit?

    These are one of the most highly counterfeited coin types. They edge has a funny greyish look to it in your photo. Some counterfeits were made using gold. I would be suspicious until it was graded or at least seen by some experts. Better pics front, back and edge and maybe somebody here could tell.

    The greyish spot could also be solder. It could have been an ex jewelry piece.

    On this series if you want a slabbed example sell this and buy one already in plastic.

    Not worth grading except for authenticity.... better to just sell it and get one already slabbed. Cheers, RickO

    Looks like it had a mount removed.

    It looks genuine, but not worth grading, with or without the damage.
