    • That was engaging, enjoyable and I managed to get to the end, which I don't always, due to short attention span. I don't think you should get it graded, mostly because you said there's some wear, which there certainly is. If you could say it is EF grade (I think it's actually VF-ish myself, but it matters not) then perhaps NGC would give it AU58 maybe. In EF grade Spink 2017 suggests a price of £125, seems brutally cheap, and Marsh 2017 price supplement says £150. Anyway, it might cost you say £30 to get it graded it total (unsure), added to the price of the coin it seems uneconomical. If you want it graded for reasons other than financial, then it could be worth it, to you. I like the coin, half sovs have quickly become my favourite. I forgot to add, I find it helpful to find a picture of an uncirculated version, to see what detail is missing. I have only recently become interested in grading and am still finding my feet, but it's always a help to use that approach I think.
