I would not spend the money to grade it, in Mar 2020 an MS64 was auctioned at Heritage and sold for $65 which likely was break even or in the red for the seller after sellers fees.  Impossible to comment on a possible grade/value from just these two close ups (remember to post full shots of both sides in the future) but I'm assuming this is a circulated coin, so I would guess its value is far less than the MS64 example I cited.

Honestly the "D: in the background appears to be a "S", you can see the curvature of the S below IMO. The upper S appears to have After Mint damage that has distorted it.....
....but I have been wrong before :nyah:

Thanks for that link DWLange.  I have to agree it's definitely the S/D.  The underlying serif you see is definitely a D.  Not only in comparison to the pics on the supplied link here, VV, and the OP's coin, but the bottom serif of the D is too pronounced and more triangular shaped which is not consistent with any lower serifs every produced on an S mint mark which are more "bulb" or "tear-drop" shaped.  Just my take on the matter..... Nice find!(thumbsu
