Is grading these coins worth it?

So, as I've busted into this inherited coin collection (see first post for full backstory) I've gotten as far as the mint rolled nickels and the mint rolled pennies. None of the nickels I've inspected are FS, and neither are any of the pennies in the single roll I broke open. I cross referenced them with the red book to get some inkling of their "value" however that would be in a graded state. While I'm confident most of the nickels and the pennies would score high on the grading scale, considering the cost of grading against the value of the coins when they're graded (not including auction prices); it doesn't seem worth it. Im wondering, if I dont grade the coins what my options might be? Thanks for the consideration guys.

    Put them in an album or keep them as is.

    Without knowing the dates it's impossible to say. Also, the mint didn't produce rolled nickels or cents with the exception of a few years and those are not particularly valuable except for a couple varieties.

    You could post pictures of a few of the best ones for some opinions.
