MTCs on Ebay April 2019

4/1/19

California, Santa Catalina Island.  1989 Trade Dollar.  The start was an optimistic $24.95 plus a $1.95 shipping fee.  After a couple more weeks at this price it became a Buy It Now item at $18.95 - however, on April 23 the sale was ended because “the item is no longer available”.

 

 

4/1/19

Hawaii, Maui.  Maui Dollar Set #2, 1997 - 2001 in official holder, numbered 10388. Start 99¢ plus $4.99 shipping.  There were 6 bids placed by 3 bidders and the set sold for $21.71.

 

 

4/1/19

Hawaii, Maui.  Maui Dollar Set #3, 2002 - 2006 in official holder, numbered 04322. Start 99¢ plus $4.99 shipping.  There were 9 bids placed by 4 bidders and the set sold for $20.70.

 

 

4/1/19

1974 South Dakota, 1975 North Dakota, and 1976 Montana Seventh Cavalry Dollars struck in copper - all three housed in a single heavy plastic holder.  The same set I have been tracking since December, still looking for a home.  After a few more weeks at $25.00 plus $7.90 shipping, the seller lowered his start to $20.00 plus $7.90 and that did the trick.  It finally sold to a single bidder on May 13.

 

 

4/2/19

Arizona, Bullhead City.  1978 Bullhead Buck.  Start $9.95 plus $2.50, BIN $12.95.  There were no bids and it came back the next week only as a Buy It Now item at $12.95.  Still available in June, two months later.

 

 

4/2/19

Michigan, Reed City.  1950 Diamond Jubilee Quarter.  About Uncirculated.  Start $7.50 plus $2.50 shipping - or you could Buy It Now for $9.95.  No bids the first week, but the following week it was only available as a BIN item for $9.95 plus $2.50, and it sold after just 4 days.

 

 

4/2/19

New York, New York.  “1909” Hendrik Hudson Daalder / Sommers Island Shilling Mule.  Silver. Graded MS-68 by NGC.  Start 99¢ with FREE shipping.  It sold for $89.88 after 11 bids by 7 bidders.  Another seller was offering one of these a few minutes later.  Also an uncirculated piece, but not encapsulated.  This one was only available as a BIN item for $119.95 plus $5.00 shipping.  It remains available for the same price as I type this up, a full two months later.  Later that afternoon, another one was offered by yet another seller.  This one was graded MS-67 by NGC, and the opening bid was $149.00 with FREE shipping.  No bids - not relisted.  How rare can these be if 3 examples are offered on Ebay in a single day?

 

 

4/2/19

New York, New York.  “1909” Hendrik Hudson Daalder / Sommers Island Shilling Mule.  Copper. BIN for $64.95 plus $4.27 shipping.  Still available for the same price two months later.

 

 

4/2/19

Washington, Roslyn.  1986 Centennial Dollar.  Start $12.99 plus $2.00 shipping.  It sold to the second bidder for $13.50.

 

 

4/3/19

California, Los Angeles.  1981 L.A. Bicentennial Dollar, Entertainment Capital version.  The start was $15.50 plus $2.96 for postage. After a couple listings it was made a Buy It Now item for the same cost. Listed without a bid until May 23, then ended - unsold.

 

 

4/3/19

Kansas, McPherson. 1970 Centennial Dollar.  Edge variety not stated.  Starting bid $6.99 with FREE shipping.  Still available as a BIN item at the same price, two months later.

 

 

4/4/19

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1996/1997 Havasu Dollar.  Standard antiqued copper finish, still in original sealed plastic pouch.  Start 99¢ plus $3.25 shipping.  A reasonable price, but still looking for a home two months later.

 

 

4/4/19

New York, New York.1993 Dutch Mint Storecard with obverse of the Half Moon Daalder. Distributed at the 1993 Baltimore American Numismatic Association convention.  Not previously listed with this reverse.  It might show up in the next edition since it shares a die with one I already list.  Start was only 69¢, and postage 69¢ more.  It sold for $4.25 after 7 bids by 6 bidders.

 

 

4/5/19

California, Los Angeles.  1981 L.A. Bicentennial Dollar, City of Opportunity version.  Graded MS-63 and encapsulated by ANACS.  The start was $11.99 plus $4.25 for postage.  No bids.  It came back for a $10.99 start, then $9.99.  Then the seller made the start  $10.99 again, but lowered the shipping to $3.95.  Still no bids, so the seller upped the price to $16.99 Buy It Now - but made the shipping FREE.  That is where it stands now, two months after it was first listed.

 

 

4/5/19

Michigan, Wyoming.  1962 Wyoming Days Festival Half Dollar.  Extremely Fine with no remaining gold coloration.  I thought at first this might be an unlisted antiqued brass version, but closer examination suggests the dark coloration was due to normal wear and oxidation.  If it wasn't so expensive I would have bought it just to be absolutely certain, but $9.99 plus $2.00 was just too much for me to gamble.  Apparently too much for everyone else as well, because It remains available in June - right now on a special 20% off sale ($7.99).

 

 

4/6/19

Oregon, Union.  1978 Centennial Dollar.  Extremely Fine.  Sold to a single bidder for the opening price of 99¢ plus $3.00 shipping.

 

 

4/6/19

Texas.  Undated Stephen Austin Twenty Texas Bucks, looks like the nickel silver version, in Extremely Fine Condition.  Start $15.00 plus $2.79 shipping. After the second week it became a BIN item at the same price.  On April 21 someone bought it.

 

 

4/6/19

Vermont, St. Albans.  1963 Bicentennial Half Dollar.  Start $9.90 plus $2.49 shipping. Listed for 3 additional weeks with no bids, so the sale was discontinued on April 27.

 

 

4/7/19

Alaska, Anchorage.  1967 Alaska Purchase Centennial Half Dollar from North Pole Enterprises.  Numbered 0010.  Start $9.99 plus $3.00.  No bids.  The following week it was starting at $8.99, then $7.99, and finally $6.99 when a lone bidder spotted it and won it for the opening bid.

 

 

4/7/19

Idaho, Wallace.  2005 40 Sterlings Two Ounce Silver Coin.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously listed.  Start $54.99 plus $3.50 shipping.  Still being offered for the same price, with the current listing set to end on June 8.

 

 

4/7/19

Iowa, Oxford.  1969 Centennial Dollar.  Start $4.99 with FREE shipping.  Too cheap - I let this one go for a few weeks, then when it looked like no one else was going to bid I placed my bid and won it for the opening price on April 28.  

 

 

4/8/18

Colorado, Fairplay.  1959 Centennial Buck.  About Uncirculated.  Start $19.95 plus $3.25 shipping.  There were no bids the first week, but the following week 2 bidders spotted it, placed 6 bids between them and it sold for $26.00.  Wow - I thought $19.95 was too much to ask!

 

 

4/8/19

Illinois, Barrington.  1963 Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $20.00 with FREE shipping.  It came back the next week for a $10.00 with FREE shipping start.  The following week it started at $3.95, but had a $3.95 shipping charge as well, and that did the trick - it sold to a single bidder.

 

 

4/8/19

New York, Syracuse.  1948 Centennial Encased Postage Stamp Good For a Dime.  This one with the blue 5¢ United Nations/Franklin Roosevelt stamp.  About Uncirculated, spotty.  Start 99¢ plus $3.66.  After 17 bids by 6 bidders it sold for  $82.09.  The same seller offered a couple more of these ending on April 25.  Both were also spotty About Uncirculated examples, but with a green 1¢ or 3¢ purple Franklin Roosevelt stamps.  The 1¢ variety sold for $82.02 after 7 bids by 4 bidders, and the 3¢ one brought $108.53 with 9 bids being placed by 6 bidders.  On the 28th, the same seller offered similar spotty AU specimens with the red 2¢ or blue 5¢ Franklin Roosevelt stamps.  The 2¢ one brought - after a 99¢ plus $3.66 start and 12 bids by 5 bidders - $63.00, but the 5¢ one brought $104.01 after 16 bids by 5 bidders.  Same start and postage for all of these.  

 

These listings combined represent a full set of all 5 of the denominations, as originally issued.  In my catalog all stamp varieties are valued the same because they can very easily be removed and replaced with a “rare” or even “unlisted” variety.

 

 

4/8/19

South Dakota, Mobridge.  2006 Centennial $3.00 in Silver.  Unknown mintage.  Too new to be listed in the last edition of my municipal token catalog.  I was the only bidder at the $35.00 plus $3.50 shipping start.  Whattadeal!

 

 

4/8/19

Washington, Ellensburg.  Undated 50¢ and $1.00 Rodeo Tokens.  These were once listed, but probably will not be included in the next edition.  They strike me as merchant tokens, not Municipals as they don’t commemorate anything.  The pair of these had a 95¢ plus $3.50 start, but after 4 bids by 4 different bidders, they sold for $4.13. 

 

 

4/9/19

Alaska, Anchorage.  (1967) Kay’s Kitchen Dollar.  Numbered 0117 on the reverse.  This token reads, in part, KAY’S / KITCHEN / IN THE  / PARTYHOUSE / 67.  I am assuming the 67 refers to the Alaska Purchase Centennial of 1967.  Probably so - it looks like several other Anchorage 1967 tokens.  I was the only bidder at the $6.00 plus $3.50 start.  This piece has not been listed, and I don’t think it will be listed next time.  I bought it to put with a bunch of other almost MTS in my wannabe box.

 

 

4/9/19

Alaska, North Pole.  1964/65 Santa Souvenir Dollar.  Start 99¢ plus $3.50 shipping.  Sold to a single bidder for the opening bid.

 

 

4/9/19

Kansas.  1961 Official Centennial Coin in Sterling Silver.  METAL ARTS / STERLING type.  No county or other issuing agency noted.  Start $5.99 plus $3.50 shipping.  After 3 bids by 3 different bidders it sold for $10.49.

 

 

4/9/19

Oregon, Klamath Falls.  1967 Centennial Buck.  Start $1.99 plus $4.25 shipping.  There were 2 bids and it sold for $2.25.

 

 

4/9/19

Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.  1926 Treasure Island Doubloon.  The most common two-sided design.  Extremely Fine - no luster remaining.  Sold to a single bidder for the $6.75 plus $3.25 opening bid.

 

 

4/9/19

Washington, Walla Walla.  1986 Sesquicentennial $1.50.  Un-numbered.  Start $3.50 with FREE shipping.  Listed unsuccessfully until June 5 when the seller ended the listing unsold.

 

 

4/10/19

Colorado, Durango.  1981/82 Centennial of Narrow Gauge Train Dollar.  Start $9.95 with FREE shipping.  Listed until May 10 with no bids, and then ended due to lack of interest (at that price).

 

 

4/10/19

Colorado, Yuma.  1962 75th Anniversary Half Dollar.  An unusually worn Very Fine token that has been holed.  Despite its problems, this scarce issue found a home when a single bidder won it for the $4.95 plus $3.85 start.

 

 

4/10/19

Montana, Plentywood.  1962 50th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Graded MS-65 and encapsulated by NGC.  Sold to a single bidder for the $10.00 plus $3.99 start.

 

 

4/10/19

Nebraska, Lincoln.  1959 Centennial Half Dollar.  Start 99¢ plus $2.99 shipping.  There were 4 bids by 2 bidders and it sold for $3.50.

 

 

4/10/19

Oregon, Ashland.  1959 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar. The more common “no smoke” variety.  Graded as MS-65 and encapsulated by NGC.  A pretty coin with a nice strike and relatively few surface blemishes, but at least 6 small dark spots on the obverse.  Start 99¢ plus $3.95.  It sold for $36.00 after 10 bids by 6 bidders.

 

 

4/10/19

Oregon, Canby.  1959 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar.  Graded MS-66 and encapsulated by NGC.  A pretty coin.  Start 99¢ plus $3.95 shipping.  It sold for $36.00 after 9 bids by 5 bidders.

 

 

4/10/19

Oregon, The Dalles.  1959 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar. Graded MS-66 and encapsulated by NGC.  A very pretty coin with only a few tiny scuff marks on the reverse.  Start 99¢ plus $3.95 shipping.  This one attracted 12 bids from 6 bidders and sold for $51.00.

 

 

4/11/19

Alaska, Matanuska Valley.  1963-1965 30th Anniversary Dollar.  About Uncirculated with 3 very distracting corrosion spots on the obverse.  Start 99¢.  Postage $4.06.  There were 3 bids - all from the same bidder - so it sold for the opening bid.  I note another example, also About Uncirculated, with a few spots on each side which could be purchased for $29.99 with FREE shipping.  That one is still available two months later for the same price, but with a Make Offer option.

 

 

4/12/19

Delaware, Cheswold.  1973 Volunteer Fire Co. Quarter.  Listable?  I don’t know - so far I have not listed it.  Sort of scarce - this is the only one I have noticed since 2014.  This About Uncirculated example had a start of $7.32 plus $3.00 shipping.  Nobody bid, so the next week it came back for $10.00 plus $3.00.  There were still no bids, even with this price change, so the seller ended his listing on April 21.

 

 

4/12/19

Hawaii, Honolulu.  1990 Honolulu Dala.  Start $39.00 plus $5.00 shipping.  There were no bids the first week, and when nobody had bid by April 21, the seller ended his listing unsold.

 

 

4/12/19

Hawaii.  1988 King Kamehameha Dala, Temple Idol reverse. Start $39.00 plus $5.00 shipping.  Fot the week ending April 21 the price was lowered a bit to $35.00, and when no one bid at this level, the listing was ended. 

 

 

4/12/19

Hawaii.  1989 King Kamehameha 30th Year of Statehood Dala.  Start $29.00 plus $5.00 shipping.  There were no bids at first, and it was listed just until April 21 before the seller ended the listing unsold.

 

 

4/12/19

Iowa, Emmetsburg. 1976 (1975-1976) Irish Dollar.  Start 99¢ plus $3.25 shipping.  No bids, and continued weekly listings have fared no better - It is still available at the same price at least until June 13. 

 

 

4/12/19

Iowa, Pella.  1982 Dutch Dollar.  Start $2.25 plus $1.50 shipping.  For the week ending April 30 the opening was lowered to $2.00.  That didn’t do the trick, and the token was made a BIN item at the same price, and remains available in the seller’s store a full two months after its original listing.

 

 

4/12/19

Maryland, Lilypons.  1967 Three Springs Fisheries 50th Anniversary Souvenir Half Dollar.  Beautiful Uncirculated, on the obverse, but with the reverse badly affected by foam plastic erosion.  Noted as a RARE issue by the seller.  Start $9.99 with FREE shipping.  For the listing ending May 8, the start was reduced to $8.99 and then $7.99 where it remains today, with the current listing set to expire on June 16.

 

 

4/12/19

Montana, Billings.  1968 50th Anniversary of State Fair Commemorative Dollar featuring Will James.  Standard Nickel-silver version.  Described as being from Midland, Texas, and one of 250 made - however the mintage is in excess of 15,000 and it definitely is from Billings, Montana.  Start $10.00 plus $4.06 shipping.  For the listing ending April 26, the opening bid dropped to $5.00, but that still didn’t do it.  On May 4 the start was $4.00, and when nobody wanted it at that price, the seller ended his listing unsold.

 

 

 

4/12/19

South Carolina, Beaufort County.  1962 Huguenot 300th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Close to Uncirculated.  Sold to a single bidder for the opening bid of $9.99 with FREE shipping.

 

 

4/12/19

Texas, Swisher County (Tulia).  1965 Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar.  I was the only one interested in this super-choice piece for the opening bid of $5.00 plus $1.50 shipping.  Too cheap!

 

 

4/13/19

Alabama, Mobile.  1961 250th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Six flags version.  Slabbed and Graded MS-64 by NGC.  Available for $39.99 with FREE shipping.  Still available two months later.

 

 

4/14/19

California, Chatsworth.  1976 Bicentennial Dime.  Start $9.95 with FREE shipping.  No bids.  Not relisted.

 

 

4/14/19

Hawaii, Honolulu.  1973 Honolulu Dollar struck in silver.  Short spikes, no number block.  Just the opposite of the following lot, the seller did not mention it was the silver issue, but the distinctive finish gave it away.  This one started off at 99¢ with FREE shipping.  Eight bids were placed by 5 bidders, and it sold for $19.38.

 

 

4/14/19

Hawaii, Maui.  1976 Maui Dollar, offered as silver.  I have never seen a 1976 Maui Dollar in silver, and this one certainly looks just like the antiqued silver plate issue.  The seller did not describe the edge, so we cannot be certain that it was an actual silver issue.  It was cheap, but not so much so to make me want to buy it to be sure.  Some other collectors thought it was a good one, though, because after a 1¢ plus $2.99 start there were 8 bidders who placed 12 bids and it sold for $16.28.  I still will not be listing 1976 Maui Dollars in silver.

 

 

4/15/19

Alaska, Ketchikan.  1971 Gateway to Adventure Two Bucks.  Start $1.99 plus $3.75 shipping.  This one caught the eyes of 4 bidders who between them placed 9 bids - sending the selling price up to $7.05.

 

 

4/15/19

California, Mt. Shasta.  1982 Two and a Half Mount Shasta Dollars.  Start $1.99 plus $3.75 shipping.  No bids.  Not relisted.

 

 

4/15/19

Kansas, Minneapolis.  1966 Ottawa County Centennial Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $2.50 plus $1.00 opening bid.  Some scratches and abrasions on both sides, but bright original finish.

 

 

4/15/19

Michigan, Reed City.  1950 Diamond Jubilee Quarter.  Typical About Uncirculated condition.  This one had a $2.99 plus $3.75 start and sold for that price to a bidder who placed an opening bid as well as a higher one which was not needed.

 

 

4/15/19

Nebraska, Chadron.  1960 Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Start $1.99, with postage $3.75 more.  After 8 bids by 3 bidders, it sold for $7.50.

 

 

4/15/19

Nebraska, Crawford.  1961 Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar.  300th Anniversary Half Dollar.   There were 5 bids placed by 2 bidders and the token sold for $5.50. 

 

 

4/15/19

Nevada, Carson City.  1964 Carson City Centennial Trade Dollar.  Start $1.99.  Postage $3.75 more.  The second bidder took this one away for $2.45

 

 

4/15/19

New York, New York City. “1909” Henry Hudson / Sommers Islands  Mule, in Silver.  Encapsulated and graded MS-67 by NGC.  The start was 99¢ with FREE shipping.  The sale price was $114.50 after 42 bids by 12 bidders.

 

 

4/15/19

New York, Rye.  1960 300th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Start $1.99.  Postage $3.75.  There were 5 bids placed by 3 bidders, and it sold for $3.25.  

 

 

4/15/19

Oregon, La Grande.  1993 Union County Oregon Trail Centennial Two Dollars.  Start $1.99 plus $3.75 for a postal fee.  Sold to a single bidder for the opening price. 

 

 

4/15/19

Washington, Port Angeles.  1962 Centennial Dollar.  Uncirculated, but with a few corrosion spots on the obverse.  Start $1.99 plus $3.75 shipping.  Sold to a single bidder who placed two bids - the second of which was unnecessary. 

 

 

4/15/19 

Wyoming, Thermopolis.  1967 Thermopolis Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Sold to a single bidder for the $1.99 plus $3.75 opening bid.  

 

 

4/16/19

Colorado, Fairplay.  1959 Centennial Buck.  About Uncirculated.  Start was $19.99 plus $3.25 shipping.  There were 6 bids by 2 bidders and the token sold for $26.00.  People have been paying very interesting prices for this token recently.

 

 

4/16/19

Maryland, Bicentennial.  1964 Bicentennial Souvenir Half Dollar.  Start $2.25 plus $1.25 shipping.  No bids.  Still available in the middle of June for the same cost, although now only as a BIN item.

 

 

4/16/19

Texas, San Antonio.  1988 Texas Folklife Festival Dollar.  Start was set for $6.50, and postage $3.55 more, making this item cost more than ten bucks.  Let’s see what happened.  Well, it is still there for the same start two months down the line.  The current listing is set to end on June 15.

 

4/17/19

Alaska, Seward.  1967 Quarter, Private Issue for Penny’s Cafe.  Blue anodized aluminum, numbered 1594 on the front.  Not listed because it does not commemorate anything - although it was probably issued to to note the Alaska Purchase Centennial celebration that year.  I don’t have it, but probably would have bid on it to put it in my “wannabe” collection if it were priced right - but at $9.95, even with FREE shipping, it was too rich for my blood.  Maybe it will get cheaper as time goes on.  Nope - it stayed at the same price for another 10 day listing, and then was ended unsold.

 

 

4/17/19

Hawaii. 1970 Menehune Money.  Still in display card as issued.  The start was $20.00 with FREE shipping.  Two bidders each placed a bid and it sold for $21.50.

 

 

4/17/19

South Carolina, Charleston.  1961 Confederate Centennial Half Dollar.  This token looked like it might have been made with an antiqued brass finish, but close inspection makes it much more likely to be the standard golden brass version, worn enough to remove the golden plating.  If I thought it had a chance to be a real antiqued version I would have been in there bidding aggressively as it would have been an unlisted variety that I was not aware of.  There were other bidders, however, and it sold for $15.50 after a $1.99 plus $3.50 start and 7 bids by 4 bidders.

 

 

4/18/19

Colorado, Victor.  1993 Centennial “Lesher Dollar”.  This example numbered 626.  Start $19.99 with FREE shipping.  There were 9 bids by 5 bidders, and the token sold for $53.99.

 

 

4/18/19

Hawaii, Maui.  2002 Maui Dollar.  Still in original vinyl pouch with Certificate of Authenticity.  Start $14.99 plus $3.74 more for shipping.  No bids, and after two more bidless weeks, the seller lowered his start to $12.99.  Two weeks after that it was assigned a  $11.99 start.  Two more weeks went by so he lowered the price to $8.99, and that is where it remains today, with the current auction set to end on June 20.

 

 

4/18/19

Iowa, State Center.  1980 100 Scents.  Sold to a single bidder for the $2.25 plus $1.50 opening bid.

 

 

4/18/19

Maryland, Hagarstown.  1962 Bicentennial $10.00 Token (in the small print it explains the token would be good for $1.00 a year until 1972 at Routzahn’s).  Priced at $8.88 plus $4.00 with a Best Offer option.  It was worth $10.00 to me as a duplicate, so on the last day I offered $6.00, which the seller accepted, making my net cost $10.00.

 

 

4/18/19

Wyoming, Cody.  Undated Days of ’49 Cody Stampede Ten Cents in Fun token.  Considerably worn, I’d call it fine to very fine.  Sold to a single bidder for the $9.99 plus $3.00 opening bid.

 

 

4/19/19

Alabama, Montgomery.  1961 Civil War Centennial Half Dollar.  A really gemmy example, sure to be a legitimate MS-66 or better if graded by NGC or PCGS.  Sold to a single bidder for $14.99  with FREE shipping.

 

 

4/19/19

California, Fort Bragg.  1964 75th Anniversary Paul Bunyan Days Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $2.99 plus $3.25 opening bid.

 

 

4/19/19

Hawaii, Maui.  Lot of 7 Maui Dollars, all dates 2000 to 2006. Two with their Certificates of Authenticity.  The start was $18.00 plus $7.90 shipping.  There were no bids at first so the seller added a Buy It Now option, but the price was double - $36.00.  The Dollars were listed without a nibble until June 10, when the seller ended his listing unsold.

 

 

4/19/19

Illinois, Chicago.  1892-1893 Columbian Exposition Harvey Land Company Discount Token.  About Uncirculated.  The seller’s title (and description) was simply “So Called dollars Hk” .  Although it shares one side with a one of the Columbian Exposition SCDs, this token was good for money - so it is not a So Called Dollar, but it does fit in with the MTCs.  The start was $9.99 plus $3.94 shipping.  There were 6 bids by 4 bidders, and I won it for $28.76.  The nicest example I have been able to get so far.

 

 

4/19/19

Pennsylvania, Malvern.  1964 75th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Start $5.00 plus $3.00 shipping.  There was also a $10.00 BIN option.  Listed until May 1, and then ended unsold by the seller.

 

 

4/19/19

Texas.  Undated Sam Houston / The Alamo large 3 inch  copper-looking Texas Penny.  I have decided not to list these large cast “Lucky Coins”.  They were mostly just tourist souvenirs, and are well-cataloged by Steve Alpert anyway.  This one was an especially well-made example that I now think I should have bid on for my wannabe box.  It sold to a single bidder for the $9.99 plus $4.06 shipping fee.  I’ve been thinking maybe someday I would list this type of item if commemorated something and had a denomination - unless it states “Lucky Penny”, “Lucky Dollar” or similar notation including the word LUCKY.

4/21/19

Alaska, Anchorage.  1967 Alaska Purchase Centennial Half Dollar, private issue for North Pole Enterprises.  Numbered 0010.  Start $7.99 plus $3.00 shipping.  This one did not get picked up the first week, but the seller lowered the start by $1.00, and by the end of the second week someone had placed a bid and the item sold for the opening price.

 

 

4/21/19

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1976 / 1977 London Bridge Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $3.00 plus 70¢ opening bid.

 

 

4/21/19

Iowa, Emmetsburg.  1975 Irish Dollar.  Despite its low start of 99¢, plus a $3.00 shipping charge, nobody bid and the token was not relisted the following week.

 

 

4/21/19

Iowa, Oxford.  1969 Centennial Dollar.  Start $4.99 with FREE shipping.  This was too cheap.  When it was still not receiving the attention it deserved at the end of its second week on Ebay, I placed a bid and won it for the opening bid. 

 

 

4/21/19

Michigan, Holland.  1950 Tulip Time Quarter.  Choice About Uncirculated.  Sold to a single bidder for the $1.99 plus $3.95 opening bid.

 

 

4/21/19

Ohio, Shelby.  1934 Centennial Dime. Dark, and with green corrosion, especially on the reverse.  Sold to a single bidder for the 99¢ plus $3.00 opening bid.

 

 

4/21/19

Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.  1926 Treasure Island Doubloon.  A much scarcer variety than the one usually available, struck on a solid (not shell) planchet, still with its attachment pin on the reverse - which is unusual.  The pin is usually gone, with just a solder mark left where it was attached.  I was the only one who wanted this About Uncirculated piece, and won it for the $9.99 plus $4.06 starting bid.

 

 

4/22/19

(Illinois), Barrington.  1963 Centennial Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $3.95 plus $3.95 more for shipping start.

 

 

4/22/19

(Illinois), River Grove.  1963 Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $5.00, but probably going up a bit in the next edition.  This one in a lusterless Extremely Fine condition.  The first of these I have seen on ebay since starting these listings!  The start was $10.00 plus $3.49 for postage, and no one bid.  The seller made it into a Buy It Now item, still at the same price.  It remains available (currently on a 15% off sale) two months later.

 

 

4/23/19

Iowa, West Des Moines.  1968 Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar.  Start $1.50.  Postage $1.50.  No bids.  Still available at the same cost as a BIN item two months later.

 

 

4/23/19

South Dakota.  1981 South Dakota Dollar.  Large bust variety.  Offered and sold to a lone bidder for the 99¢ plus $2.99 shipping start.

 

 

4/24/19

Indiana, Brazil.  1962 Centennial (Half Dollar).  This token does not state the denomination on the token, but the redemption information , in part, reads “ REDEEMABLE AT FACE VALUE” and the local merchants accepted them for 50¢.  This was the first of these I had noticed in a while, so I bid and won it for the opening bid of just $5.00 plus $1.00 shipping.  Too cheap!  

 

 

 

4/24/19

Indiana, Elkhart.  1958 Centennial Half Dollar.  Uncirculated - minor spots.  Start 99¢ plus $3.00 shipping.  No bids, so the seller relisted it as a $9.99 with FREE shipping Buy It Now item!  That didn’t work immediately, so the listing ended because “the item is no longer available.”  But, as so often happens, it came back right away anyway.  At least it was a little bit cheaper this time, $8.29 with FREE shipping.  Still available two months later.

 

 

4/24/19

Nebraska, Chadron.  1960 “Silver” Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar.  The seller described the piece as silver but did not provide the weight or data on the edge inscription - at least one of which is necessary to determine if it really is the rare sterling version instead of the relatively common silver plated version, which has an identical appearance.  The opening bid was $14.99 plus a $3.00 shipping fee.  No one bid, so apparently no one else thought it was the silver one either.  The item was not relisted.  The appearance of the silver plated piece is so convincing that it has been offered as silver by coin dealers and on Ebay many many times as the sterling version.

 

 

4/25/19

Maryland.  1984 Calvert Penny Commemorating Maryland’s 350th Anniversary.  A shiny new version of the Colonial Era Calvert Penny, but with the dates 1634 - 1964 added.  The originals were spent as pennies back in the day, but there is no denomination on the coin, originals or copies, so they probably will not be added to the listing.  This one came with its original descriptive envelope.  Issued by the Tri-County Council for Southern Maryland in Charlotte Hall, MD.  Start $8.00 plus $4.31 shipping.  It ended up selling for $13.50 after 6 bids by just 2 bidders.

 

 

4/26/19

Alaska, Fairbanks.  1959 Alaska Statehood Dollar.  Graded MS-65 and encapsulated by NGC.  Offered for a start of $39.00 plus $6.00 shipping.  There were no bids, and it was lowered to $35.00 where it has remained ever since.  Still available for the same start, with the current listing ending on June 27.

 

 

 

4/26/19

California, Fort Bragg.  1963 Paul Bunyan Dollar.  Start $1.99 plus $2.00.  After 2 bids it sold for $2.24 

 

 

4/26/19

Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.  1926 U.S. SesquiCentennial Treasure Island Doubloon.  The usual two sided version.  This one Extremely Fine, lusterless, with some minor spotting on the reverse.  Start 99¢ plus $2.75 shipping.  After 4 bids by 4 bidders it sold for $17.25.  Too much for this common coin.

4/29/19

Arizona, Tombstone.  “1879” (1960’s) Helldorado Days Dollar in copper.  About Uncirculated. Start 99¢ plus $3.50 shipping.  There were a remarkable 14 bids by 6 bidders and it ended up selling for $17.16.  That’s over $20 bucks with the postage.  Wow!  Do you think the bidders thought it really was from 1879?

 

 

4/29/19

Kansas, Liberal.  1963 75th Anniversary Nickel.  Start $49.99, but with FREE shipping. Oh Boy!  Nobody bid so it was made a BIN item at the same price.  Still available two months later, and still for the same price.  Offered by a seller I have noted many times before who lists common tokens for very high prices.  I suppose once in a while it pays off.
