Anybody here serious into coins?
First let me admit I am not into coins, but do know a little about the grades and stuff. I inherited a coin collection from my late father. Mostly
normal stuff, some silver, some un-circulated stuff, some old but well worn stuff.
My main question is about some pennies. He had 5 rolls of 1962D un-circulated pennies in sealed plastic tubes. Normally the 1962D is not worth much,
but there have been a few of high grade that have gone for over $500.
One of the rolls had a broken seal so I went through them, and pulled out the best 5. I have no idea of how to grade them myself, just that they look
fantastic. All 5 look better than this one, at least to my eye.

On this one I see black spots, which some in the roll did have, but the 5 I picked out do not,
and seem to have a near mirror finish (not proof).
I know it costs somewhere between $14-$30 to have them professionally graded. If I could get some good images of them, could someone who knows what
they are looking at, let me know if it is worthwhile to send them off to be graded, or if it would just be a waste of money.
