Default To grade or not to grade

I know this is in the eye of the beholder, but should I get this capped bust half graded. I've wanted one for awhile and this beauty was at one of my local shops. Picked it up for a better than fair price to. What say all if you. Grade it ir no ?

Are you going to sell it or keep it? either way,
Do you want it in a case graded?
There would be no guessing involved on what you have.
Did you invest to sell it in the future?
Itís what you what, not what we think.

Outstanding coin by the way!

Very nice example of a Capped Bust Half Dollar and in my opinion this one grades XF. Personally, I wouldn't send it in to be graded because it's not rare. What you decide to do with it is of course up to you.

+1

Nice coin, I agree with the XF, and I would not slab it if it were mine.
