You won't be able to get the coin properly and fully insured unless it's been certified by an coin grading agency like PCGS or NGC. You also won't get the same price from a reputable auction house or dealer. You cannot tell from a photo whether it really is bronze or steel, or whether it has been cleaned or even counterfeited without an experienced coin grader evaluating the coin. ANY coin with a noted circulation of only 10-15 specimens will be looked at with HUGE suspicion by any knowledgeable collector or coin dealer.
I've collected coins all my life. Heritage Auctions in Dallas, TX sold my certified and uncirculated Lincoln Penny collection for just over $65,000 about 10 years ago.
