Thoughts on condition, and is it worth being graded ?

    Yes. The coin needs confirmation from experts.

    Could'nt help myself.
    The error looks very cool, and the condition screams at you.
    WOW. A Lincoln bobble head.

    I am completely changing my response because the two that follow are much better! What do you think it might grade? Have you compared it to other graded examples? What about it makes you feel it may be worth it?

    What grade would you assign to the coin and what do you think is the minimum grade that would make it worthwhile to get graded?

    Try to assign a grade (use reference material if you can), then check values.... is it worth the cost of the TPG, shipping, insurance?... Cheers, RickO

    From the photos I would expect it to grade as MS66RD, PCGS price guide show a value of $34. Beautiful coin but really only financially viable if it grades 66+ or better, of course if you have other reasons to have this coin graded then any financial concerns may not an issue.

    Looks like a red coin, minimum 65 max 66. Likely not worth submitting unless there is some sentimental value attached to this particular piece.
