    This posted a whole lot of pictures I didn’t mean to post. Half where to see if I should grade the other half was asking if they where errors lol.

    "should" is a matter of personal opinion. For each coin where you ask if it should be graded please post:

    • The value of the coin right now, ungraded
    • The value of the container it is graded.
    • The cost to grade the coin.

    Those bullets give folks here something factual to discuss. "Should" is something that comes from those facts

    When I submit I ask myself if the cost of submitting will increase the value of the coin. Since you are showing us $2 dimes, I suspect no. Unless there is some sentimental reason to put in slab, save your money to buy many more of what you showed us.

    It’s an individual decision - different players have different goals.

    For me: P&L Impact, Budget, etc.

    I do a spreadsheet - direct grading cost each coin, indirect costs like shipx, ins get total cost to grade per coin. Then make decision off that as it’s an expense the business will need to recover (OPEX) unless it’s directly allocated to the inventory cost of the coin. Irregardless it falls under the cost plus markup factor (reflects the business ROI goal). MV (CPG, CF) / pop is additional data reflected in their respective columns.
