Have a 250AD Moesia Viminacium Caesar Hostilian Branze coin in poor condition. Is it worth restoring?

I'm fairly a newbie to coin collecting. I bought this 250AD Moesia Viminacium Caesar Hostilian Branze coin in a poor condition. I'm planning to getting it graded and encapsulated. But I wanted to know if it's worth restoring? Will it affect the grading score / will it decrease value? I have attached pictures of the coin.How much would it be worth after restoration?

A coin cannot be "restored" - only neutralized and protected (i.e., "conserved").

Why pay good money to have this coin put in a plastic slab that says just what you said in your post?

I wouldn't have it worked on or encapsulated. From the color, if it is truly bronze (how do you know that?), it's recently cleaned. I'd tell you more about it if I had weight and diameter (grams and mm).

It's 31.7mm in diameter and weighs 19.5 grams

Great. The other thing I'll ask is that you put the images right side up. It might seem like a small thing, but when trying to research the coin, misorientation is very frustrating.
