Have collected coins for years but not professionally. Just because I enjoy looking for errors. I once had coins certified at the Baltimore Coin Show but that was years ago and they filled out the paperwork. I do not know how to submit a coin.

Well, if you are a "Collector", I would place it in an "airtight", and put it away in a safe place.
If you plan on selling it, you will need to have it certified as a variety, and encapsulated by a TPG.

:eureka:
I've been doing this since 1970, and my views on 'grading' are a bit different.
I have a large number of coins that are not "slabbed", but I know for certain what they are... And I am a "COLLECTOR", so I really don't sell too many coins.

My views on 'paying a fee' for coin encapsulation are:
1. Preservation
2. Authenticity
3. Variety Attribution
4. Proof Designation

I would like to sell. So where should I send it to be certified?

NGC and PCGS both require a membership, so in your instance, I would say ANACS... JMO

Congratulations.
That is a nice example of the notching (on the top corner of the base of the E) that we look for to confirm a DDO.

Another possibility is to sell to a collector directly that doesn't necessarily need a slab. It could save the finder and collector some $ in slabbing fees.
Or for encapsulation you might have a dealer send it in for you. This might be slightly higher, but sometimes the shops do it to keep customers coming back.

How do I send this coin to you for verification?
Thank you,
