Should I get this graded?

I have a few pennies that have struck-through errors, but they aren’t substantial enough to make any money worth messing with. This is the only exception, it basically is nearly unreadable. The reverse of the “am” are touching which means it’s at least a “93” or later. Thank you all for your time!

    I think this is a genuine "grease filled" strike, but the corrosion ruins it. Not worth grading IMO.

    How much do you feel a slsb will increase its value over what it is worth now?

    I'd like to see the reverse to comfirm it isn't a die set-up piece.

    eBay is probably the best venue to try to sell it – it’s a good example of Grease filled dies

    However, in that condition With the verdigris, it is not worth slabbing, even without it

    I guess it brings somewhere around 10 maybe $15

    Not a die set up,or adjustment strike, as the obv. Rims are full

    Looks to be a grease filled die. The corrosion in my opinion is a big take away.
