Hi everyone. I recently purchased a 2009 P Lincoln Formative Years penny graded MS67 by NGC. My question is, PCGS "values" this coin at $425.00 while NGC has it at $33.00. Should I send it to PCGS to increase the "value" of my collection or am I just wasting money? Thanks for your help. Chris

No guarantee this coin would crossover, it's a crap shoot.

If you bought it at auction, you paid what the value probably is. Switching holders will probably only increase your cost.
A better test would be to do a search on Ebay for "sold" coins in that grade and potential (or current) holder.
Click this LINK for an example of what they have sold for.

A Denver mint seems to sell for more.
