Don't send it in to grade. It will cost you 10 times more than the coin(s) will ever be worth. The twonie has a minor alignment abnormality, but it looks within specs (or how you can find them). The loonie looks like a small die chip, but possibly post-mint damage. Just keep asking questions to learn/understand things for yourself. Almost NEVER will you ever need a TPG to tell you what you have. After you pay the TPG and postage (usually both ways), all you have a coin imprisoned in plastic with a little piece of cardboard that gives an opinion of what you have on that given day.
