Coins | Cougar Coins

Good morning everyone, just trying to learn the program. So I hope that you can see this and is asking what do you think about this coin? Would it be worth sending in for grading? What do you think?

That some beautiful toning! I would just enjoy it and not spend the extra money to send it in for grading.

I won't repeat what others have said because I agree, but it is a pretty coin and I would keep it even if it isn't worth more than face value. 30 years from now it will be worth more. Collecting coins is a long long term hobby.

I agree with mike, nice toning. I collect lincoln cents and have a few of those in my personal collection! If You're talking about coin YouTubers, I mainly watch RobFindsTreasure.

I have quite a few of these rainbow toned Lincolns. I've found that leaving them in the center console of a car causes this. As for grading? With hundreds of millions struck and the cost of the grading it would seem illogical to submit unless for your own enjoyment as the value simply is not there. This should not discourage you from collecting toned cents since they are beautiful in their own right.

One of the things you risk sending this coin in is that the graders will declare that the coin is artificially toned. What that means is that someone artificially accelerated the toning process. Good luck if you decide to send it in.

Nice toning, but its not really worth anything. Toned coins only really carry a premium when the coin is old, and the toning is spectacular!

I agree with that, I notice this on a youtube channel I watch, mostly ancient coins

It costs about $30 to sen din fora coin, and that coin is definitely not worth it. These zincolns tone incredibly fast.

It’s not worth the hassle or cost of getting graded, but it is a very nice cent to flip up and keep in your collection!

Beautiful coin! I wonder what led to it toning so beautifully in such a relatively short time? Not worth more than one cent today. Put it in a holder and hang on to it for or 30 years and it will have more value. Hard to see that when we are young but its true. If only I had kept more when I was younger. Thanks for showing us that attractive coin!

Put it in a 2x2 or plastic holder for safe keeping. Not valuable, but coin collecting is about what you really like also. I have a few coins I found that are interesting to me. Found a couple proof coins in circulation and have saved them. Have a 1943 cent that must of been copper plated. Keep on searching for the interesting coins.

Sending it in is up to you. It will be expensive. The coin is only worth face value. It is very beautiful. I would definitely keep it. Keep hunting. Thanks. Welcome!

fI would keep it for the toning alone but I don't think it is worth slabbing as the fees would far outstrip the value. Having said that, many people slab coins with sentimental value even though the slabbing is worth more than the coin, it is your choice always.

No that's a nice toning . It comes from the environment. It's a nice coin but not worth anything. Sorry about that. But don't give up. Keep looking. I know you will find something. Well not all the time. But keep looking!!!
