Default Any coin guys or experts? Question

Ok my grandfather past away like 4 years ago . He left my sister some coins .we decided to check them out and Found alot of nice silver coins ( quarters, dimes, 50 cent pieces and dollars pre-1964) but one coin really stood out to me. It's a 1873 s silver half dime . I'm on my cell and can't post a picture but the pic wouldn't do any justice. The coin is in beautiful shape for being so old. I mean looks almost brand new and looks barely even circulated. I mean it's georeous. Question is how to I go about getting this graded ? What do I do? What's the best company to get coins graded by? What would it cost? Etc... Please , I don't know much about this stuff and would like to learn a little more . Really think it could grade high so hoping that it would be somewhat valuable. If you wanna see a pic of it you can message me your email address and I can send a pic to you from my cell. Again any and all help is appreciated . Thanks

You would want PCGS to grade the coin, but you must be a member of the club to do so.

Here's some completed auctions on ebay, maybe it will gauge what the coin is worth, and if it's even worth grading to you.

Whatever you decide to do... do not under any circumstances touch the coin...
