Default Grading Coins For A Dummy.. Help

Hello fellas,

I am gonna be honest I know absolutely nothing about grading coins, but I have a few coins I think would be worth while to figure out about. I have a few morgans and a few kennedy commerative silver coins that I would like to get graded so here are a few list of questions.

1. How to do it?
2. Who to use?
3. Is it worth it?
4. What to do to prepare coin before sending off?
5. Estimated Cost?
Fine with paying Ebay Avg. Prices. Only buy off evidence, can't deny #s. Please don't waste my time with prices you "need" or makeup if its 150% Over Ebay.

Buy a book there are several to choose from. I have the PCGS coin grading and counterfeit book. I would use PCGS or NGC. It all depends on the grade and or rarity of coins. If you have a Coin shop in your area they can submit them for you. Also at Major coin shows they have on site grading companies. Google PCGS or NGC and go to there web sites for more info.
