9/3/16

Illinois, La Salle.  1967 Starved Rock Coin Club / Illinois Numismatic Association “COMMEMORATIVE / SOUVENIR / HALF-DOLLAR / NOV. 18-19.  Not listed because it does not celebrate a significant community event, but some MTC collectors collect it because it says Souvenir Half Dollar.  I’ve got one in my “wannabe” collection.  This sale was for a lot of 3 uncirculated pieces. Start was $12.99 + $4.95, but there were no bids.  It was then lowered to $10.99 + $3.99, then $9.99 + $3.99, then $6.99 + $3.99 where it stayed until the listing was finally ended unsold on November 5.

 

 

9/3/16

Kwajalein. Undated Kwaj Karnival Dollar.  The start was $9.25 with FREE shipping.  I guess everyone who wanted one of these has gotten theirs, because there were no bids.  Not relisted.

 

 

9/4/16

Colorado, Fort Morgan.  1959 Town 75th Anniversary / Rush to the Rockies Centennial. Mintage 5,000.  Catalog value $5.00.  This auction was for one in just XF/AU condition.  The starting price was $49.95 with FREE shipping.  Here is the way the Colorado seller described the piece:  

 

“1959 Rush to the Rockies Commemorative - Rare!!! So-Called Dollar/Trade Token   

 

Note: This is a Congressional Authorized Official Medal on Obverse side and a commercial trade token good for 50 cents on reverse!!!

 

A SUPER RARE variety that was obviously an oversight and you may not ever find an official medal/trade token hybrid again!!” 

 

Hmmm.  There were no bids and it is still available at the same opening bid.  The current listing ends November 16.

Nearly XF but called “Almost Uncirculated +, if not Uncirculated” by the seller.  There was clear wear, as well as scuffs and abrasions.  Start $19.95 + $2.70.  There were 15 bids by 6 bidders and it sold $89.00.   Encased in a World Premier holder which at first glance appears to be a slab, but isn’t.

 

 

9/11/16

Guam.  1974 Guam Dollar described as struck in Silver and numbered 224.  This was a bright and gemmy specimen, but it does not appear to be silver.  The edge, which would tell the whole story was not described.  The seller described it as catalog # 5 in Unusual World Coins, which is the silver issue.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $27.50 fro the real silver issue, $10.00 for the silver plate.  This was probably the silver plate version.  The start was $39.95 + $3.85.   There were 8 bids by 3 bidders and it sold for $66.00.  I was so certain it was not the silver strike that I didn’t even bid.

9/13/16

Wyoming, Basin.  1971 Diamond Anniversary Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.50.  This specimen was called Very Good by the seller, but its condition was definitely the typical Uncirculated.  Offered for $19.00 plus $2.50 shipping, this overpriced token found no home and is now available for a $25.00 BIN price, but with a Best Offer option.  The current listing ends on December 11.

9/14/16

New Hampshire, Ellsworth.  1969 Centennial Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $12.50.  Quite a scarce item!  While only in AU condition, I was pleased to grab it as a duplicate for the  $12.99 with FREE shipping opening bid.

9/15/16

Montana.  1964 Statehood Diamond Jubilee / Territorial Centennial Dollar struck in silver.  Variety with STERLING and number (502) on edge.  Mintage reported as 1,000 - but probably higher because they show up much more frequently than a token of this mintage should.  Catalog value $15.00.  Start was $34.99 plus $4.14.  No bids, so after a few weeks the price was lowered to $32.99, but that didn’t work either.  Still available at that price in late November. 

 

 

9/16/16

Georgia, Villa Rica.  1976 U. S. Bicentennial 13¢ piece.  Private issue for Met Coins.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously cataloged.  The start was 99¢ plus an additional $1.95 for shipping.  There were 4 bids by 3 bidders and it sold for $7.13.

9/17/16

Montana.  1964 Statehood 75th Anniversary / Territorial Centennial Dollar struck in silver.  Mintage supposedly 1,000, but the holder said this was #1490.  The seller noted that it was marked STERLING on the edge, but did not re-confirm the number.  The start was $32.00 plus $3.00 shipping, but there was no interest at that price.  By the time the seller ended the listing unsold on October 3, the price had fallen to $25.60.

9/20/16

New York, New York City.  1909 Hendrik Hudson Daalder - the small gold dollar size, struck in aluminum.  Listed as HK- 374.  This one was graded AU-58 by NGC, but in my opinion it was an unusually worn and scratched Very Fine.  Priced at $120.00 Buy It Now.  No bids.

9/21/16

Oregon, Pendleton.  Undated Pendleton Round Up Meal Ticket for the Let ‘Er Buck Room.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously cataloged - and probably not destined for inclusion, but I didn’t have the piece and when one came up a couple years ago remember I did not bid anywhere near high enough.  This time I was luckier and I won it for $8.50 after an $8.00 + $1.00 start.  A good addition to my wannabe MTC collection. 

 

 

9/21/16

Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.  1926 United States Sesquicentennial Treasure Island Doubloon.  Scarcer uniface Liberty Bell / skull and crossbones design.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously cataloged.  This one had a start of $7.99 with an additional $2.50 charge for shipping.  There were 2 bids and it sold for $9.38.

 

 

9/22/16

Kansas.  1961 Official Centennial coin for Barber County.  Mintage unknown.  Previously uncatalogued as an individual issue.  The Barber County issue is a scarcer one, but this one was in slightly circulated condition with some spots and green corrosion.  Offered as a BIN item at $9.99 with FREE shipping.  There have been no takers and it is still available at the same price as I type this on November 25.

 

 

9/23/16

Wisconsin, Black River Falls.  1983 Centennial Dollars in gilt brass and oxidized brass, both numbered 47.  Mintage reported as 250 pieces each.  Catalog value $8.50 each.  I spotted these two as a Buy It Now offering for just $5.95 plus $2.75 shipping for the pair, and just had to buy them.  Cheap!

 

 

9/24/16

Florida, Key West.  1972 Conch Republic Conch Dollar.  Leaping sailfish on reverse - the easiest of the three pewter Conch Dollars to find.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.50.  This one started at 99¢ plus $2.99, drew 7 bids from 5 interested bidders, and sold for $14.50.

9/25/16

Kentucky, Ashland.  1954 Centennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $10.00 in Uncirculated condition.  This one made that grade and had a $4.99 plus $1.50 start.  I won it for the opening bid.  This was a good deal for a fully uncirculated piece.

 

 

9/25/16

Montana.  1964 Statehood 75th, Territorial Centennial Dollar "struck in .999 Fine Silver".  No, there were none struck in .999 silver, but there were plenty in Sterling.  from the illustration this was clearly a nickel-silver issue.  All known silver examples are marked STERLING on the edge.  The seller did not illustrate or describe the edge, but he did give the weight as 23.4 grams, and that is the weight of the standard nickel silver examples.  Still, it was offered as “999 Fine Silver” and sold for about what a sterling silver specimen would have brought.  After a 99¢ plus $2.95 start and 10 bids by 5 bidders, it sold for $17.16.

 

 

9/25/16

New Jersey, Pittman.  1955 Diamond Jubilee Quarter.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $10.00.  This piece was in below average condition with about half of the gold lettering worn off.  It was up for bid, starting at $12.00 plus $3.00 shipping, but failed to attract a bid and was not relisted.

 

 

9/25/16

Oregon, Cottage Grove.  1963 Bohemia Days Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $5.00.  Offered for a start of $4.99 plus $2.75 for shipping.  This About Uncirculated (which is typical for this issue) token failed to attract a single bid, and the listing closed unsold.

 

 

9/26/16

Alabama, Cherokee County.  1961 Civil War Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 5,000.  Catalog value $3.50.  The auction was for an about uncirculated example that started at $9.95 plus $1.25.  There were two bids by two bidders and the token sold for $15.35.

9/30/16

Kansas.  1961 Official Centennial coin for Sherman County.  Mintage unknown.  Previously uncatalogued as an individual issue.  Sherman is a rather scarce county, so I was rather surprised when it sold to the second bidder for only $3.24 after a $2.99 start.  Postage was an additional $2.75.
