4/3/18

Pennsylvania, Shamokin.  1964 Centennial Half Dollar.  The start was set to $7.95 with $3.75 additional for postage.  That made the total cost of this piece at least $11.70 which, at the present at least, is just too much - even though this was an especially nice specimen of a somewhat scarce issue.  When it did not sell, the seller added a dollar to the price and made it a Buy It Now item.  Still available in the seller’s store on June 3. 

 

 

4/4/18

Indiana, Boonville.  1958 Centennial Encased Cent issued by Kindermann’s.  Not a good for, but since there is a real cent in there, i have often wondered if I should list them.  There are not a whole lot of community anniversary encased cents out there.  This one had a $4.99 plus a VERY HIGH $4.08 shipping charge, which is what convinced me not to bid.  No one else bid either, and the listing was ended.

 

 

4/4/18

4/4/18

U.S. Virgin Islands.  1990 St Thomas Daler.  Not quite Uncirculated.  Available for a low 99¢ bid pluss $3.99 shipping.  I resisted this one the first week, but when no one else bid I placed my bid and won it when it was relisted for the original 99¢ plus $3.99 start the next week.

 

 

4/5/18

Colorado.  1959 Statewide 25¢ Gold Poke.  Hard to grade in coin terms, but this one was missing some of the gold color from the plastic bag containing the gold tailings - indicating it was actually used.  Call it XF condition.  Start 99¢ plus $3.50 shipping.  There were 5 bids from 3 bidders, and it sold for $3.25.

 

 

4/5/18

Idaho, Couer D’Alene.  1963 Idaho Centennial Half Dollar.  Start a do-able $3.00, but the postage was $5.00.  No one bid, and the seller ended the listing unsold.

 

 

4/5/18

Kansas.  1961 Official Centennial Coin for Allan County.   Buy It Now $4.99 plus $3.00.  The seller continued his listing until April 22, when he ended the lot unsold.

4/5/18

Massachusetts, Great Barrington.  1961 Centennial Half Dollar, Holed at about 10:30.  The same specimen I tracked for a while last January - I remember the picture!  Still $4.99 plus $2.75.  Still available on June 5.

Michigan, Webberville.  1971 Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $6.50 plus $1.50 shipping.  No bids.  Not relisted.

4/5/18

South Dakota.  1983 South Dakota Souvenir Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Mintage 800, if it is the regular lettered edge version - the seller did not describe the edge.  Catalog value $5.00.  The start was $4.99 plus $2.75.  After a couple weeks it was made a BIN item at the same cost, and it remains available to this day, still at the same cost.  The current listing ends on June 14. 

 

 

4/5/18

Washington, Puyallup.  1965 Western Washington Fair Half Dollar.  The start was your choice between a $6.50 bid or a $8.50 BIN price, but nobody opted for either, and the seller ended his listing unsold.

4/6/18

Oregon, Albany.  1948 Centennial Half Dollar.  XF condition with all the original golden plating gone.  I thought there was a small chance that this piece was an unlisted brass piece, but it was not enough for me to be willing to make the opening bid of $4.95 plus $4.75.  Someone else did, however, and took this one home for the opening price.

 

 

4/7/18

Hawaii, Kona Coast.  Undated Islands of Hawaii Non-denominated token.  Perhaps listable, but while still in the style of the older tokens it lacks a denomination.  Buy It Now $14.99 with FREE shipping.  Still available, but after a month at a lower $10.99 BIN price.  The current listing will not end until July 6.

 

 

4/7/18

4/7/18

South Dakota, Fort Yankton.  Undated Four Bits.  About Uncirculated.  Bidding started at $4.95 plus $2.95, or you could Buy It Now for $9.95.  When no one bought or bid, the seller lowered the start all the way to 99¢, and when still no one bid during that second week, he ended the listing unsold.

 

 

4/8/18 

Alaska, Anchorage.  1967 Dave’s Alaskan Trade Dollar - private issue for Carpentier’s Cocktail Lounge.  A numbered issue, this one #3159.  Start $1.99.  Postage $3.50.  No bids.  Then listed for an additional week and when it still went without a bid, the seller ended the listing.  Ebay offered up another one, since the one I was watching had ended.  It was in About Uncirculated condition and priced at $7.99 plus $3.50, Buy It Now.  This piece, numbered 997 is still available in the Seller’s Store as of June 7.

 

4/8/18

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1972 London Bridge Dollar.  The start was $5.99 plus $2.69. There were no bids, so on the 3rd week the seller dropped the start to $5.89, 2 weeks after that $5.79, then $5.69 and then to $5.59. After that a big drop to $5.29 where it sits today, two months down the line. 

 

 

4/8/18

Illinois, Ottawa - La Salle County Farm Bureau. 1964 125th Anniversary Half Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  The start was an astronomical $15.00 but the shipping was FREE.  The listing ended after the second week, but it came back at the same price and is still available - currently ending on June 17.  The  same seller had another example in the typical Uncirculated condition which was available for a bid of $20.00 - that one had a similar listing history, and is also still available.  Another Ebay seller apparently saw a chance to undercut those two pieces and is offering his for just $11.00 with FREE shipping.  Oh boy!

 

 

4/8/18

Illinois, Warsaw. 1962 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar in very choice About Uncirculated condition - actually significantly better than most for this particular issue. The start was $15.00 plus $1.99 shipping.  It is still available, with the current listing ending on June 12.

 

 

4/8/18

Kansas, Russell  1971 Centennial Dollar.  Start: $10.00 with FREE shipping.  There were no bids, and the token was not relisted. 

 

 

4/8/18

Michigan, Reed City.  1975 Centennial Half Dollar.  Available for bids starting at $9.99, or you could Buy It Now for $25.00.  Either way the shipping was FREE.

4/8/18

Michigan, Wyoming.  1962 Wyoming Days Festival Half Dollar with a large hole at the top.  Start: $6.50 plus $1.50 shipping.  There were no bids and it was not immediately relisted, however a month later it returned for another single week at $6.50 plus $1.50.  No bids that time either. 

 

 

4/8/18

Oregon, Baker.  2000 Baker County 2 Bucks in Oxidized Brass.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.50 in the draft for the new edition.  The starting bid was $10.00 plus $4.00 shipping.  After a couple weeks the start dropped to $9.00 + $4.00 BIN.  It is still available in the sellers Store for the same BIN price, with the current listing on July 9.

 

 

4/8/18

4/8/18

Pennsylvania, New Wilmington.  1964 Centennial Half Dollar struck in Nickel Silver. Encapsulated and graded MS64 by NGC.  Start 99¢ plus $2.70.  After 3 bids by 3 bidders I won it for the too-low price of $3.60.

 

 

4/8/18

South Dakota, Sioux Falls.  1960 Dakota Territory Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $1.99.  Postage $3.50.  No bids, not relisted.

 

 

4/8/18

South Dakota, Yankton.  1960 Dakota Territory Centennial Half Dollar.  Same seller as the previous listing.  There were no bids, but on this one he tried an additional week, and when that passed without a bid he ended this listing too.

 

 

4/8/18

Wisconsin, Fon Du Lac.  1948 Wisconsin Centennial Dime Discount private issue token from the Valin Camera Shop.  Choice About Uncirculated.  Start $6.99 + $2.99 shipping.  The listing ended unsold on April 22.

 

 

4/9/18

Arizona, Tucson.  1933 Wolfville Western Days Dollars - a lot of 16 - in the usual XF to AU condition most of them are in.  Sold to a single bidder at the $85.00 plus $5 postage start.  Three days later a single example of this token was offered by another seller for a start of 99¢ plus $2.79 shipping.  It brought $12.35 after 8 bids.  It was in the usual XF/AU condition.  Two days after that another example, this one in uncleaned AU condition with just hints of luster and a few spots sold for $29.50 after 9 bids by 4 bidders.  Start was 99¢ and postage $3.00.

 

 

4/9/18

Indiana, Washington.  1966 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  The start was 1¢ - and that is exactly what it sold for to the single bidder.  It was not as great a bargain as it sounds, however, because the postage was $4.04!

 

 

4/9/18

Montana, Sidney.  1969 Mon-Dak Dollar.  Start $5.00.  Postage $2.75.  Sold to a single bidder who placed an additional bid - just in case!

 

 

4/9/18

Wyoming.  A lot of three “Wyoming Bucking Bronco Tokens”.  Two were Municipal Trade Coins - The undated Cody Days of ’49 Ten Cents In Fun token (Catalog value $5.00), and the Laramie 1968 Centennial Half Buck , Two fence rails, recut reverse (Catalog $4.00) , plus a uniface copper piece, a bit smaller than the others that has a cowboy riding a bucking bronco and the inscription LET ‘ER BUCK above and WONDERFUL WYOMING below.  The 3 pieces started at $5.00 and then ended up at a remarkable $103.53 after 16 bids from 3 determined bidders.  Wow!

4/10/18

Alaska, Ketchikan.  1967 Alaska Centennial Dollar, Private issue for the ‘49er Bar and Steak House.  The only MTC in a 16 piece lot titled “Marvelous Beginners Token Collection” that started at 99¢ plus shipping, which attracted 10 bids from 7 bidders, and sold for $8.50. This one piece was worth the price of the lot!

 

 

 

4/10/18

California, Lassen County.  1964 Centennial Half Dollar.  Looks like the narrow letters version, but that is difficult to determine because of the oblique angle the seller photographed his item from.  Doesn’t matter much anyway, because the both catalog for the same price - which was much lower than the $6.50 start, let alone the $3.00 shipping fee.  It is still available more than two months later ( now as a BIN item at the same price) as a permanent fixture in the Seller's Store. 

 

 

4/10/18

Hawaii.  1984 Mele Kalikimaka Christmas Akhi Dala by the Royal Hawaiian Mint.  One of the popular “Surfing Santa” Dalas.  This issue not previously cataloged, but with a mintage of just 500 pieces.  The start was $84.97 BIN, and it sold to a single bidder at that price.  Pretty good deal, I guess. 

 

 

4/10/18

Illinois, Galena.  1961 Civil War Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $4.50.  Postage $3.50 more.  No bids this week, nor were there any in its second week on eBay.  At that time the listing was ended by the seller - but no problem!  Ebay recommends another specimen available from a different seller for just $24.95 BIN with FREE Shipping.

 

 

4/10/18

Mississippi, West Point.  1958 Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 1,000.  Catalog value $15.00.  Nobody else wanted it, so I won this scarce piece as the only bidder at $9.95 with FREE shipping.

 

 

4/10/18

Pennsylvania, Hummelstown.  1962 Bicentennial Half Dollar.  Start 99¢ plus $2.66 shipping.  There were no bids and it remains available for the same start more than 2 months later.

 

 

4/11/18

Iowa, Clare.  1973 Irish Dollar.  The second year in a 10 year series.  The start:  $5.00 with  $2.50 shipping fee.  There were no bids, and it was not relisted.

 

 

4/11/18

4/11/13

Michigan, Sault Ste Marie.  1968 Tercentennial Half Dollar.  “AT” variety.  Start $5.99 plus a reasonable 99¢ shipping.  No bids.  After a month the postage was made FREE for a week, and when it still attracted no bids, the listing was eventually ended unsold on June 8.

 

 

4/11//18

Oregon, Baker City.  2000 Baker County $2.00.  Nickel-silver regular issue.  Offered for $3.00 with $2.65 shipping.  Listed until June 4, when the seller terminated his listing unsold.

Washington, Ellensberg.  1967 Robbers Roost Centennial Dollar.  The start was only 50¢ and postage 50¢ more.  This uncirculated piece sold for $1.25 after 2 bids from two bidders.

 

 

4/12/18

Hawaii, Molokai.  1976 Molokai Dollar.  Start $100.00 plus $2.99 shipping.  Still available two months down the line. ......  I came across this one again later.  Still the same price, now BIN, on a listing that closes September 11.

 

 

4/12/18

Idaho, Wallace.  Undated (1958?) Sweet’s Lounge Good for one Drink on Punky and Babe Aluminum token.  This variety does not seem to commemorate anything, so it is probably not a listable item.  This example, in About Uncirculated condition, brought $22.50 after 12 bids from 4 bidders.  Interesting.  

 

 

4/13/18

Hawaii, Kona.  1974 Kona Dollars Numbered set of 3 struck in antique brass, gold plated brass, and sterling silver. All were numbered 066 on a raised number bar - and all three were mounted in truly ugly ornate bezels and suspended from chains.  The start was $25.00 and the postage was $5.68.  One guy bid $27.01 so I won the set for the super low price of $28.01!  About 4 weeks later another of these 1974 numbered Kona Dollars appeared on Ebay - this time a single silver one - numbered 059 and also in a hideous bezel with a chain.  The start for this one was $19.99.  This is a particularly elusive issue and I wanted this one too for a trader.  Considering what the set of 3 had sold for, I bid $88.50 and was totally confident I would win it for much less.  But no, there were two other bidders who wanted it more than I did.  One guy bid $98.88 and there was another fellow who bid even more than that because he won it for the next bid increment, $99.88.  Strangely, both lots were offered by sellers in Illinois, one in Elmhurst, and the other in Elgin, towns less than 25 miles apart.  And the numbers on the coins were very close together.  There is a story in there somewhere - probably not a very exciting story, but a story nonetheless.  Perhaps a clue to what it was comes from a note the second seller made relating to the silver piece he was offering - simply the comment “from estate”.

 

 

4/13/18

Ohio, Bedford.  1962 125th Anniversary Half Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Start $4.99.  Postage $3.75.  No bids.  Relisted for another week at the same price (now BIN), but after just a single day the seller cancelled his listing.

 

 

4/13/18

Washington, Port Angeles.  1962 Centennial Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Start $5.69 with postage set at $1.65.  After 4 weeks, the seller dropped the start to $4.99.  Then it went up to $6.49 BIN for a couple weeks before the listing was ended unsold on June 7.

4/14/18

Indiana, Terre Haute.  1966 150 Years of Progress Half Dollar.  Choice Uncirculated - I thought it might be the gold plated version, but that is just too hard to tell from photos,  Start $5.79 with FREE shipping.  After two weeks the price dropped to $5.08 and then, until May 31when the lot was ended unsold, it was available BIN for $5.00.

4/14/18

Ohio, Dennison.  1965 Centennial Half Dollar.  This one does not show up everyday.  Offered for a start of $5.79 plus $1.55 shipping.  Two weeks later the price dropped to $5.08.which is where it stayed until June 11 when the listing was terminated by the seller.

 

 

4/14/18

Ohio, Lancaster - Fairfield County.  1950 Sesqui-Centennial Dime in pink plastic. Bidding was set to start at $5.79 with just 52¢ for postage.  Later there were opening bid reductions to $5.08 and then $4.94.  Then for its final week on Ebay, the price was pumped up a bit to $5.25.  Still no bids, so the listing was ended.  I see ebay is also suggesting I might be interested in one of these in red plastic for $7.99 or in tan for $7.27 - both with FREE shipping.  Also one that was a bit interesting - a red one that was holed for a start of $4.99 plus 49¢.  I am not sure I have this one, but they would be so easy to make I didn’t want to waste five bucks on it! 

 

 

4/14/18

Oklahoma, (Tulsa).  Undated International Petroleum Exposition 25¢.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously cataloged.  For sale at $8.00 plus $4.00 shipping, Buy It Now.  There were no bids, so the next week the seller nearly doubled the price to $15.00.  Still no bidders came forth, so at the end of the week the seller ended his listing because “the item is no longer available”.

 

 

4/15/18

Hawaii.  1989 King Kamehameha 30th Anniversary of Statehood Dala in Silver.  Offered for $64.95 plus $3.95.  The next week it went down to $63.95, and when no one bid again, the seller ended his sale because “there was an error in the listing.  But it came back anyway, at gradually lower prices.  The current listing requires a bid of at least $53.95.  It ends on June 17.

California, Jamul Sovereign Nation.  2018 Coin set of the 6 standard denominations, 1¢ to ¢1.00, each picturing some element of Hawaiian Native life one one side and marked Jamul Sovereign Nation / Native Indian Nations in America on the other.  Similar sets are offered for other Indian Tribes sets from the Blackfoot, Crow, Ewiiaapaayp, Navajo, La Posta, and Cherokee being offered on this Ebay Page alone. Most of these on Ebay are being offered by a seller in Hungary, and a quick look at the website of the Native American Mint of Torrance, California shows that they have been produced for many other Indian groups as well.  These do not seem to be commemoratives of any particular event - just scenic images of the Tribe, its wildlife, plants, people and territory.  I will not be listing any of them.

 

 

4/16/18

Hawaii, Maui.  2006 Maui Trade Dollar.  The Buy It Now price was $15.99 with FREE shipping.  No bids.  Not surprisingly it is still available for the same price more than two months later.

Minnesota, Cass County.  1958 Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $3.00, plus an additional $2.75 for shipping.  There were two bids from a single bidder - his second bid not needing to be executed since no one else bid, and it sold for the opening price.

 

 

4/17/18

Florida.  Undated Sunshine Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  The start was $5.95 and postage just 65¢ more.  Sold to a single bidder who placed two bids - the second one being unnecessary, as he had no competition.

 

 

4/17/18

Hawaii.  King Kaalakaua 1883-1983 Centennial Dala.  “Test Strike” with 3 partial coins on 3 of the 4 corners of a square (with large central hole) piece of scrap white metal.   Start $145 BIN with FREE shipping.  The seller ended his listing unsold, still at the same price, 8 weeks later on June 14.  But it came right back as an auction item starting at a more reasonable $65.00 - 5 days into that sale no bids have been placed.

 

 

4/17/18

Michigan, Ovid.  1969 Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $6.50.  Postage $1.50.  After a month the seller raised the price to $9.95 as a BIN item and placed it in his store where it is still available on June 17.

 

 

4/17/18

Oklahoma, Burns Flat.  1949 Drawing Dime.  About Uncirculated, but with unattractive brown stains on the obverse.  Starting bid: $15.00 with FREE shipping.  Still available for the same price two months later.

 

 

4/17/18

Washington, Ellensberg.  1967 Robber’s Roost Centennial Dollar.  The standard issue but with hole through the coin and a depression hollowed out to accommodate a Lions International clasp-back pin. The coin/pin combination could be worn in the same fashion the standard Lions club pin was worn.  The first of these I have seen.  Start $17.95 plus $2.66 shipping.  Too much.  For the listing ending May 26, the price was dropped to $14.95 BIN.  In June the price was dropped again, this to $12.95 with a Make Offer option.

 

 

4/17/18

Washington, Lynden.  1991 Centennial Dollar.  Start $7.25.  Postage $1.95.  When it did not sell, the price was lowered to $6.95 BIN. Then back to bid at a $7.95 start.  With no bids being made , the seller stuck it in his online store for $7.95 BIN, where it has been since then.  The current closing date is July 5.

 

 

4/18/18

California, Eastern Sierra (Inyo and Mono Counties).  1961 Souvenir Coin. This choice Uncirculated piece sold to a single bidder for the $1.00 plus $1.00 opening bid.

 

 

4/18/18

Illinois, Grayslake.  1970 Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog Value $6.50.  Gotta be scarce as this is the first time I have noticed one of these on Ebay in the 5 1/2 years of these listings.  Still, no one bid at the $10.00 plus $1.99 start, and it was not relisted. 

 

 

4/18/18

Iowa, Scranton.  1969 Centennial Half Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Described as Rare and offered for a start of $7.99 plus 99¢ more for postage.  There were no bids, and the seller raised his price to $9.99 and made it a Buy It Now item.  After a month the BIN price was dropped to $8.99 and a couple weeks later a MAKE OFFER option was added.  Still available with the current listing ending on July 4.

 

 

4/18/18

Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota Seventh Cavalry Dollars in .999 silver.  Also in this lot a pair (NS and .999 silver) 1990 South Dakota Souvenir Dollars.  The mintage of the Seventh Cavalry Dollars was reported to be 200 pieces each in silver, but these are all numbered 418.  My guess - and that is all it is - is that probably 500 pieces were struck.  The mintage of the 1990 South Dakota Dollar was 800 in Nickel Silver and an unknown, but much lower number in silver.  This pair was  numbered 29. The 5 pieces - 4 of them silver with a combined weight of about 3 ounces - had a start of $12.99 plus $4.10 shipping.  There were just 2 bidders, and the group sold for $32.88!  A give away, well below the value of the silver.  Somehow, I missed this sale - Rats!

 

 

4/18/18

North Dakota, Bismarck.  1962 Little World Series Half Dollar in Goldene.  Start $9.99 plus $3.50 shipping.  Listed for an additional 10 days with no bids before being ended unsold by the seller.

 

 

4/18/18

South Dakota.  1982 South Dakota Souvenir Dollar.  Mintage 800.  Catalog value $5.00.  There were no bids at its $17.95 plus $3.75 start.

 

 

4/18/18

Wisconsin, Green Bay.  1932 George Washington Bicentennial Souvenir Coin.  A nice About Uncirculated example.  The start was $19.99 plus $3.50 shipping.  A week later the start dropped to $12.99 - which is a pretty good price for one so choice.  When no one bid, I decided to place a bid the third week and won it for the starting bid of $12.99.

 

 

4/19/18

Illinois, Genoa.  1961 125th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Advertised, it seemed, as a single piece - but as you read on it was clear this sale was for a lot of 20 coins.  That explained the $100.00 with FREE shipping start.  No one bid so the sale was ended and the seller offered a single piece for a start of $1.00 plus $2.00 shipping.  One guy bid - in fact placing two bids, the second of which was not necessary.  The following week the seller offered single coins for $8.00 plus $3.50 shipping as Buy It Now pieces.  Still being offered, now with a MAKE OFFER option for the same price two full months later.  It is noted that more than 10 are available (and 20 pieces are pictured in a group photo), but does not mention if any have been sold, or if any offers have been made, which is normally done when multiple pieces are offered.  The seller mentions that the tokens are “Very Rare” and are in “Circulated Condition in Excellent Condition”.  All of them in all his offerings appeared to be in Uncirculated condition to me.

 

 

4/19/18

Nevada, Las Vegas.  1878/MCMVII Las Vegas Dollar/Las Vegas Twenty.  A muling of the two differently denominated obverses.  This in golden brass, a previously unlisted finish.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously cataloged, but the nickel-silver version of this piece lists for $7.50.  I didn’t have it, but I didn’t want to pay the $15.00 with FREE shipping start.  Nobody else did either, and after a second week of listing, the lot was ended unsold.

 

 

4/19/18

New York, New York City.  1909 Hendrik Hudson Dallder, Large size, Struck in Aluminum.  Graded MS-61 by NGC - AU-50 by Steve.  Sold to a single bidder for the $99.00 plus $6.50 start.  Since this item had sold, Ebay is offered up some other certified ones I could buy since I missed out on this one when it sold two months ago.  My favorite of the 3 certified examples suggested is a piece NGC called UNC DETAILS - RIM FILING, available for $350.00 BIN.  Postage was FREE.  It looked like it might be Uncirculated, but the file marks on the edge spill out onto the reverse rim and just cannot be ignored.  Does it seem strange to anyone else that this piece which had a reported mintage of plus or minus 200 pieces is always available in multiple quantities?  I know that MTCs with a mintage of 200 pieces will very rarely appear for sale.  In the original 1963 edition of So-Called Dollars, Hibler and Kappen state that less than 200 were struck, but this was amended in the 2008 second edition, where the mintage is noted as 200+ pieces.  It is just a guess, but it seems likely to me that MANY more than 200 pieces were struck.  Same with the smaller aluminum version of this token, the mintage of which is not discussed.

 

 

4/20/18

California, Oroville.  1963 Feather Fiesta Days Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  About Uncirculated condition.Catalog value $5.00.  Up for bid starting at $5.99 plus $3.00 shipping.  No bids.  Not relisted.

 

 

4/20/18

Kansas, Edwards County.  1961 Kansas Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 2,500.  Catalog value $6.00.  I was the only person interested in this piece and won it for the opening bid of $5.99 plus $3.00 for shipping.  Seems cheap enough to me for an item that is  scarce enough to have eluded me on Ebay for 5 1/2 years!

 

 

4/20/18

Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.  1926 United States Sesquicentennial Treasure Island Doubloon.  Extremely Fine condition, but scratched over the obverse.  Sold to a single bidder at the $8.75 plus $3.25 opening bid.

 

 

4/21/18

Colorado, Victor.  “1900” Lesher House Restoration $1.25 octagonal silver token.  A pair of these, numbers 723 and 774.  Offered for a start of $700.00 with FREE shipping ($910 Buy It Now).  For the next 4 weeks they were available only as a BIN item for $650. Since then the lot has been priced at $590 with the current listing ending on July 13.  Recently a Make Offer option has been added.

 

 

4/21/18

Hawaii.  1984 Queen Lilioukalani Admission Day Dalas - set of Silver and Gilt Bronze in a plastic and wood case.  Start 99¢ plus $3.50 shipping.  The set sold for $38.55 after 14 bids by 9 bidders.  You know, now that I look at it more carefully, that Gilt Bronze one looks like it just might be the Gold issue.  I wonder?  It seems to me that 30 or so years back, when I bought my Gold one, it was with a Silver one and in a case just like this one.  Maybe the winner got a nice surprise when he took the coins out of the case - who knows!

 

 

4/21/18

Maryland, Frederick County.   1964/1965 Jug Bridge Memorial Park Half Dollar.  Uncirculated, but slightly spotty. Start 99¢ plus $3.79 shipping.  Sold to a single bidder at the opening price.

 

 

4/21/18

Oklahoma, Fort Sill.  1969 Centennial Dollar in aluminum.  A nicer than usual copy.  Offered starting at $6.50 plus $3.00 shipping.  There were no bids, and it continued being listed as a BIN item at the same price for four more weeks before the seller ended the listing. 

 

 

4/22/18

California, San Diego.  1936 California Pacific International Exposition Dime.  The final digit of the date stamped over a 5.  Extremely Fine / Almost Uncirculated.  Start $14.99 plus $2.75 shipping.  It did not sell, but it has come back again, this time for $23.99 plus $2.75.  The current listing closes on June 22.  The seller also has an original 1935 edition of this token (much scarcer than the overdate) up for sale which I have put on my watch list and will be reporting on in a two months.

 

 

4/22/18

Hawaii.  “1893”  Queen Liliuokalani Akahi Dala in gold anodized aluminum.   Start $1.99 plus $1 shipping.  The piece sold for $6.50 after 5 bids by 5 different bidders.

 

 

4/22/18

Maine, Whitefield.  1959 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  The pictured example was a very nice uncirculated piece, BUT the written description was for a common Schiller Park, Illinois 50th Anniversary Half dollar.  The start was $1.00 and postage was just 70¢.  When I spotted it, it was too late to ask the seller which one it was, so I bid and hoped for the best.  The good thing is I won it as the third bidder for just $2.30.  The bad thing is that it turned out to be the Schiller Park token. 

 

 

4/22/18

Minnesota, St. Charles  1960 Winona County Fair Golden Jubilee Half Dollar.  AT THE FAIRGROUNDS / ST. CHARLES MINN. variety.  About Uncirculated.  Start $3.00.  After 4 bids by 3 bidders I won it for $8.55.  It appears this is the more available of the two varieties.  I told you back in 2013 that it would be quite a while before another one of these became available!

 

 

4/22/18

Ohio, Geneva.  1966 Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $2.99.  Postage $2.99.  Listed for 3 weeks with no bids, so the seller ended the listing unsold.

 

 

4/23/18

California, Morro Bay.  1971 Centennial Dollar.  About Uncirculated - maybe Uncirculated - it is hard to tell on these cast tokens.  It looks a bit dull and dirty.  Offered with a starting bid of $1.99 plus $4.63 shipping.  No one bid so he did what any good Ebay seller would - he raised the start to $7.99 - but at least lowered the postage to $2.98.  That did not work either, so he raised both the cost and the postage to $14.99 and $3.97.  But don’t worry - if you act fast, right now (June 22) you can take advantage of a special 41% off sale and you can BIN for just $8.84.  You can also choose the Make Offer option and see if make a deal with the seller.

 

 

4/23/18

Hawaii, Maui.  1995 Maui Dollar.  Standard edition in nickel-silver.  Start $3.00 plus $4.00 shipping.  There were no bids, so the seller ended his listing - but started it up at exactly the same terms later.  Still being offered - the current listing ends on June 27.

 

 

4/23/18

4/24/18

New York, New York City,  1986 Statue of Liberty Centennial Birthday Dollars.  Set of the 6 designs without the usual descriptive folder.  Start $34.99 plus $7.50 shipping.  Too much.  It came right back for a start of $4.99 plus $7.50.  Listed until May 1 when the item was ended by the seller.

 

 

4/25/18

South Dakota.  1978 South Dakota Souvenir Dollar struck in copper.  Regular issue mintage 6,000 with a catalog value of $3.50.  This copper one a trial piece or mint error on the wrong planchet.  Other years also appear rarely in copper, so maybe a legitimate variety.  I did not have it so I bid and won it for the opening price of $28.99 Canadian ($21.73 US) plus $3.99 ($2.99) shipping opening bid.

 

 

4/26/18

Kansas, Ellsworth.  1967 Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $3.50.  Postage $1.99.  Still available at the same opening bid two months later (ending date June 28), but now there is a $4.99 Buy It Now option.  If you would like to pay a lot more, Ebay suggests another one with a $12.99 plus $3.50 BIN price.

 

 

4/27/18

Kansas, Arkansas City.  1961 Kansas Centennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.00.  Extremely Fine / About Uncirculated.  Originally offered for a start of $4.99 plus $2.69 shipping.  After 2 weeks the price was lowered to $4.79 - then $4.69 and $4.59.  Then it went off sale for a while, but came back for $3.99 and is still available.  The current listing ends June 29.

 

 

4/27/18

Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.  1926 Treasure Island Doubloon.  Brown AU condition with a couple edge nicks and a couple oxidation spots.  Sold to a single bidder at the $11.75 plus $3.25 shipping opening bid.  The following day the same seller sold another one.  This was nicer - a decent AU with a little luster left and only a couple little carbon spots.  It too sold for the opening bid - this time $24.50 plus $3.25 postage.  Apparently the same bidder won the item as both were sold to bidders with 7372 feedback.

 

 

4/28/18

Iowa, Avoca.  1969 Centennial Half Dollar.  You could Buy It Now for just $19.95 with FREE shipping - and you can still Buy It Now for exactly the same price.  You’d better hurry though, the current listing will end on July 1.

Oklahoma, Newkirk and Kay County.  1968 75th Anniversary Dollar.  Starting at $4.99 plus $3.75 shipping.  No bids.  Not relisted.  Since this one was no longer available,  Ebay offered up other BIN examples that were available for $9.99 plus $3.00, or $12.75 with FREE shipping.

 

 

4/28/18

Oregon, Gold Beach.  Undated Chamber of Commerce One Chinook.  Extremely Fine with minor dirt and small green corrosion spots - sounds bad, but actually quite nice.  Nice enough for me to unsuccessfully bid $48.88 as a duplicate.  After a $15.00 plus $4.00 start, there were 12 bids by 7 bidders and it sold for $51.88.  The seller noted that the token was valued at $80 on tokencatalog.com.  Maybe so, but the 4 pieces I’ve tracked on Ebay all have sold in the $40s and $50s.

 

 

4/29/18

4/29/18

Hawaii, Maui.  2015 Maui Trade Dollars ($2.00).  Start $1.99 plus $2.00 shipping.  There were 4 bids by 2 bidders and it sold for $5.50.  Ebay, ever helpful, suggested another one, since this one had sold.  The cost: $12.99 Buy It Now with FREE shipping.  It is interesting to see what they really bring when collectors can bid what they want.  They still sell at the higher prices however.  The guy selling for $12.99 has already sold 3 at this price, and still has 2 available. 

 

 

4/29/18
