Please Read Before Posting A Topic

In the title please put date, denomination and type of coin design and a brief on what you are asking about.
In example: "1995 Lincoln Cent Missing 5" or "2010 Roosevelt Dime With a Line inside the rim".

All of this helps discern the different topics from each other and is much less confusing to members who want to help.
Topic titles like "how did this happen" or "help" often get ignored and lost in the confusion.

If it was me I'd have any pre-1934 gold coin graded by PCGS. any oz. of gold is worth verification vs. an oz. of silver.
Thanks for the video it's a much nicer coin then 1st impression.

Please do NOT take what I ask as being argumentative b/c it is not - but typing never conveys intent so I make this statement first! 😊

Is this an opinion b/c you are a slab collector? Although I am not, I do appreciate how they make a great way to display coins.

BTW...my only Eagle is slabbed.

Any one oz. gold coin is worth grading even if it comes back only details grade as to verify its really gold. You can do that when something has a bullion price excluding numastic value of around $1900 give or take vs a silver coin that has most its value in numastics not the $26 or so spot price its worth. the means justify the cost.
Should thr OP Slab it? Absolutely.

Most of my coins are slabs due to buying online it's not a guarantee of course and I've been burned that way too but it's helpful most of the time.
