Worth grading? Crazy toning on 1988 Maples in Govt Packaging

I'm normally not in the habit of sending bullion in for grading, but these toners in original Canada sealed packaging has me tempted. Would these be worth sending in? Thank you for any advice. I am a little concerned bc it looks like there's residue inside the packaging?

    They are a bullion coin, it would cost more to have them graded then what they are worth.

    These look like there is some color but mixed with environmental damage (possibly pvc as mentioned). So it likely would not straight grade and the eye appeal isn't there to even if it did.

    There are bullion coins (Eagles, Maples, etc) that are worth grading when they have vivid colors. Take a look at sold listings on eBay to see what types of colors have a premium well above the grading cost.
