Should I have this graded and what is it worth?

    Get yourself a Red Book—best investment in this hobby. You will see that this coin is worth $0.50 in MS-65, which is better than the condition of your coin. If that's worth the grading fees for you, by all means send it in.

    I'm sorry if this comes across as brusque, but you will wear out your welcome here quickly with posts of common pocket change like this one that would take a few seconds to research in the guide.

    Nothing is as expensive as free money.

    While it’s in nice shape for its age it certainly isn’t worth grading. Pretty much just face value.

    While I completely agree with you, this part "posts of common pocket change" is somewhat ironic given your user name. ;)

    I would say your coin is not worth grading.

    Have it graded if you wish, but you're throwing your money away.
