Look at recently ended auctions on eBay for the difference in price between 2005 1/10ths in OMP vs. those graded 69. If the difference is substantial, say $50 bucks, it may be worth your time and effort. If not, keeping them in OMP is not a bad choice.

NGC seems to be the company of choice for grading MCC these days. I don't know how the submission costs of PCGS stack up to those of NGC though.

For the right price, many members here would probably be happy to take a 1/10th off your hands.

How much in America would it cost to get one graded by NGC?  Would it be likely to come out ms69 or more changes of 67/68?

I don't know the exact price for grading. If you were to have a coin shop submit it for you with a batch of items they were already sending in, chances are it would run you <$30. If it needed NCS services, add $15 bucks or so.

Most 1/10th oz coins (older than 2011) that look nice in their OMP, probably 60-70% or so, grade 69. Maybe an additional 20% grade 68 and 5% grade 70.
