I went through this same issue when I went to send in my first batch to CGC. If you have one, use an Overstreet guide to determine the price. Do not guess on what it would be worth slabbed. If you don't have Overstreet you can reference sales on eBay of raw books to get an idea of the value.

That is a good question!  Especially when you send in a book that is expected to be worth over $1000 and then is returned graded with a purple restoration label!  CGC does not give you credit back for overestimating values, but they do raise the price of the grading if you underestimate values.
