MTCs on Ebay August 2019

 

8/1/19

Alaska, Fairbanks.  1959 Alaska Statehood Dollars, Lot of 3 - all graded MS-64 and encapsulated by NGC.  Start $29.99 plus $6.00 shipping.  Nobody bid, and the seller decided not to relist his tokens.

 

 

8/1/19

Arizona, Camp Verde.  1975 Fort Verde Day Dollar.  Mintage 1,000 or 1,500 - reports vary.  Catalog value $6.50.  Sold to a single bidder for the $9.95 with FREE shipping start.

 

 

8/1/19

Connecticut, Waterbury.  1924 250th Anniversary 50¢ Discount on a purchase from Upson, Singleton & Co.  Described by the seller as having “Full prooflike BU Surfaces both sides”.  It sold at the opening bid of $19.00 plus $4.00 to a lone bidder.

 

 

8/1/19

Idaho, Buhl.  1981 75th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $4.95 plus $2.00 start.

 

 

8/1/19

Indiana, Brazil.  1962 Centennial Friendship Festival Good In Trade (Half Dollar).  Nice Uncirculated.  I have not seen one of these listed in a while.  I was the only one who was willing to go the $4.00 plus $1.00 starting bid, which I thought was pretty cheap!

 

 

8/1/19

Ohio, Ashtabula.  1953 150th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Nearly Uncirculated.  Start $4.95 plus $2.95 shipping.  Listed without a bid until September 20, when the seller decided to end his listing unsold.

 

 

8/1/19

Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.  1926 U.S. Sesquicentennial Treasure Island Doubloon.  The most common, 2 sided design.  Start $15.00 plus $3.00 shipping.  Extremely Fine with a bit of luster remaining. No bids - then listed for a single 5 day listing before being ended by the seller.  Another seller offered one that ended on August 2 - just a very slight shade better than the previous one.  It had a $20.00 plus 70¢ start.  After the first week the seller lowered his start to $18.00. and that did the trick, with the coin selling to a single bidder on August 9.

 

 

8/2/19

Alaska, Matanuska Valley.  1963-1965 Thirtieth Anniversary Dollar.  A single seller was offering 5 separate uncirculated copies of this coin, all with a $3.99 plus 99¢ start.  Each one sold for $8.00 after either 6 or 7 bids from two bidders.  The listings had “private listings” with the “bidders identities protected”.  I always wonder the reason for this.  I suspect that if a seller wants to use “shill bidders” to force a price up, this type of listing might be advantageous - and real bidders are less likely to find out that it is always the same bidder that pushes the prices up to a level the seller will actually sell an item for.  I don’t know though, perhaps there are other reasons a seller might not like his bidders to know the feedback rating (good luck determining the actual identities though) of the other bidders.  I’m sure Ebay does not mind, despite their published policies, because if something sells for $10.00 instead of the $6.00 it might have sold for, Ebay gets their percentage of that extra cash, so they win.  The seller who uses shill bidders to increase the selling price of their items sometimes actually looses - because if they push too much and end up “winning” the item themselves, they have to pay the higher seller fees even though the item really only sold back to themselves!  Please note that I am not saying that this was what this particular seller was doing, but I do wonder why a tiny percentage of sellers choose to keep the identities of their bidders private.  Perhaps there are some really great advantages to this method that I just do not recognize.

 

 

8/2/19

Washington, Roslyn.  1986 Centennial Dollar.  The start was $1.99 plus 99¢ additional for shipping. I won it as the second bidder for just $2.25.  I wish I could buy a whole bunch more for that price!  The only others I’ve encountered on Ebay sold for $12.50 +$1.00 in 2014 and $12.40 + $1.00 in 2017.  With this one bringing $3.25 plus 99¢, what is it worth?  I think I’ll probably stick with my $8.50 catalog evaluation.

 

 

8/3/19

Massachusetts, Great Barrington.  1961 Bicentennial Half Dollar.  Start 69¢ plus 69¢ for shipping.  Sold for $2.34 after 4 bids by 2 bidders.

 

 

8/3/19

Virginia, Norton.  1969 75th Anniversary Half Dollar in Extremely Fine condition.  This one has been available for a several months now for $35.00 with no bidding action, so the seller has made it a Buy It Now item and put it on a 10% off sale - which makes it available for $31.50 plus $4.81 shipping.  On the latest listing there is also a Make Offer option.

 

 

8/4/19

Alaska, Kodiak.  1965 Plywood Palace Days Good For One Snort Private issue token for Solly’s Office.  Copper, Extremely Fine.  Start $11.99 plus $2.75 shipping.  No bids, not relisted. 

 

 

8/4/19

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1981 London Bridge Dollar in antiqued copper, the standard finish for this year.  Sold to a single bidder for the $2.50 plus 70¢ opening bid.

 

 

8/4/19

Hawaii.  1959 Crossroads of the Pacific Souvenir Coin in golden brass.  The start was $85.00 plus $3.50 shipping.  No bids, despite being relisted several times.  For the listing ending September 25, the seller lowered the start to $49.00.  Still available at that opening bid for a full two months.  The present listing ends on October 17.

 

 

8/4/19

New York, Eden.  1962 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar in antiqued brass.  Catalog value was $12.50, but is probably going down to $7.50 or so in the next edition.  This was part of a lot of 5 New York commemorative medals - this one being the only MTC in the lot.  The start was $7.99 plus $4.00 shipping.  Listed until September 1 without a bid, then ended.  Too bad, it would have been a good deal for someone. 

 

 

8/5/19

Alaska, Fairbanks.  1959 Alaska Statehood Dollar.  It sold to the second bidder for $1.25 after a 99¢ plus $3.99 shipping start. A couple weeks later, on August 22, the same seller sold another one to a single bidder for the 99¢ opening price.

 

 

8/5/19

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1979 London Bridge Dollar.  Copper.  Choice Uncirculated.  Start $2.50 plus $1.50 shipping.  There were no bids the first week, but the next week the seller lowered his start a bit to $2.35 and that attracted two bids - both from the same bidder - so it sold for the starting price.

 

 

8/5/19

Arizona, Prescott.  1915 Frontier Day Celebration $10.00.  Extremely Fine with some light corrosion, probably from being buried.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $17.50.  Start $9.99 plus $3.95 additional for shipping.  After 7 bids from 4 bidders it sold for $26.00.  The winning bidder placed one additional bid which was not used.

 

 

8/5/19

Minnesota, Alexandria.  1962 Runestone Anniversary Half Dollar.  Extremely Fine / Almost Uncirculated.  No one else was bidding for this seldom-offered token, and I won it for the $8.00 plus $2.90.  Not bad!

 

 

8/5/19

Montana.  1964 Montana Territorial Centennial Centennial “50 Dollar Slug”.  Described as an Unlisted So-Called Dollar.  Un-numbered version.  Graded MS-65 and encapsulated by NGC.  Currently unlisted.  I don’t know if I will be listing this relatively abundant token or not, but I have both varieties in my “wannabe” collection.  These are always being offered, but this one caught my attention because of the starting price - $239.99 with FREE shipping.  The piece was not relisted “because the item is no longer available”.  It is interesting to note that another encapsulated example, also graded MS-65 by NGC, sold to a single bidder for the $39.99 with FREE shipping start on August 22.

 

 

8/5/19

Ohio, Alliance.  1950 Centennial Half Dollar.  Very nice Uncirculated.  I was the only bidder at the $3.99 plus $1.00 start.  A very good deal for one this choice.

 

 

8/5/19

Pennsylvania, Waynesboro.  1963 Civil War Centennial Half Dollar.  Slightly circulated.  Sold to a single bidder for the $8.99 plus 89¢ opening bid.

 

 

8/5/19

South Dakota, Sioux Falls.  1960-1961 Dakota Territory Centennial Half Dollar. Cooperating/circles variety, the most common type.  Sold to a single bidder for the 99¢ plus $3.99 starting bid.

 

 

8/5/19

Wyoming, Cheyenne.  Undated Cheyenne Frontier Days Frontier Buck.  XF/AU.  Started at $4.00 plus $1.00 shipping, this piece sold for $6.50 after 3 bids by 2 bidders.

 

 

8/5/19

Cascadia. 2019 5 Dougie Dollars.  Silver.  Noted a few months ago.  The seller decided not to scrap the 9 silver specimens that were not well struck, and instead counterstamped each one with his SMALLFOREST counterstamp and offered them on Ebay for $3.00 each.  Postage was $2.75 ($3.45 for the 3 I bought). Not a bad price because at that time each had a $3.43 scrap value (up to $3.95 in the two months that have passed since these were offered). Seven of the nine examples were purchased by Ebay buyers.  I bought mine because they were cheap, interesting, and rare - but I still don’t think they will be listed as Municipal Tokens.

 

 

8/6/19

Montana, Miles City.  1976 U.S. Bicentennial Dollar.  Start $4.99 plus $1.99 shipping.  It did not sell during the first week, but during its second week on eBay, it sold to a single bidder for the (same) opening price.

 

 

8/7/19

Rhode Island, Providence.  1961 325th Anniversary Half Dollars.  Lot of 4 pieces. Offered for just 99¢ ($2.95 Buy It Now), but plus $4.57 for shipping.  By August 27 the seller had received no bids, so he raised the postal fee to $5.40 and continued his listings.  On September 18, he dropped the postage back to $4.57, but that deal lasted only one week, and has been back at $5.40 ever since.  The current listing ends on October 8.

 

 

8/8/19

Hawaii, Kona.  1973 Kona Dollar.  Extremely Fine.  Sold to a single bidderr - who placed a second unused bid - for the opening bid of $2.99 plus $3.00 shipping

 

 

8/8/19

South Dakota, Sturgis.  1976 U.S. Bicentennial Bear Butte Quarter.  Extremely Fine condition.  Sold to a single bidder for the $7.00 with FREE shipping start.

 

 

8/9/19

8/9/19

New York, New York City. (1909) Henry Hudson / Sommers Island Mule in Copper.  Start $1.99 plus $3.00 postage.  It sold for $31.00 after 6 bids by 6 bidders.

 

 

8/9/19

Ohio, Newcomerstown.  1964 Centennial Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the 99¢ plus $3.50 start.  No bids the first week, and after a second weekly listing with no bids, the seller ended his token unsold.

 

 

8/10/19

Colorado, Durango.  1981-82 Railway Centennial Dollar.  The start was $9.95 with FREE shipping.  It lasted until September 1 without a bid before being ended by the seller.

 

 

8/10/19

Kansas, Augusta.  1968 Centennial Souvenir Dollar.  Start 99¢ plus $3.99 shipping, and after 3 bids by 3 bidders it sold for $2.25.  Not a bad price for this scarce municipal!

 

 

8/10/19

Ohio, Mansfield.  1958 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar, struck in Golden Brass.  Choice Uncirculated.  Offered for a $3.00 start and $3.74 more for shipping.  

 

 

8/11/19

Montana, McCone County.  Montana Territory Centennial Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder (who placed a second, unnecessary, bid) for the opening bid of $2.99 plus $3.99 shipping.

 

 

8/11/19

New York, Alden, Homer and Palmyra as the Municipals in a set of 5 modern New York Commemoratives.  The remaining two were not MTC’s.  The start was $7.99 plus $4.00 shipping.  Alden and especially Homer are a bit scarce, so I placed a $10.88 bid in hopes of adding them to my duplicate box, and actually expecting to win them for the starting bid…but it didn’t work out.  One other person placed a bid and outbid me, winning the lot for $11.33. 

 

 

8/11/19

New York, Evans.  1971 Sesquicentennial Commemorative Coin.  Part of a lot of 5 modern New York Commemoratives, only two others were MTCs:  The common 1959 Albany County and 1966 Rensselaer County issues.  Sold to a single bidder for the $7.99 plus $4.00 start.

 

 

8/11/19

New York, Victor.  1971 Sesquicentennial Commemorative Coin.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog Value $15.00.  The first I’ve spotted on ebay since I began these lists in 2012.  Part of a lot of 5 modern New York Commemoratives, only two others were MTCs.  They were the common 1959 Albany County and 1966 Rensselaer County issues.  After a $4.99 plus $3.50 start, I won this lot as just the second bidder for the bargain price of $12.00!

 

 

8/12/19

Minnesota.  1958 Uniface Brass Minnesota Centennial Obverse, used on several MTC’s and SCD’s - this one offered as a So-Called Dollar, HK-517.  Extremely Fine with only slight traces of the golden coating remaining.  Large hole at the top of the obverse, as made, for use on a key chain or jewelry.  Start $32.00 plus $4.00 shipping.  For the listing ending October 6, the start was lowered to $28.80, and the postal charge raised to $4.50, but when the new price didn’t attract any bidders, the lot was ended unsold.

 

 

8/12/19

North Dakota, Finley.  1972 75th Anniversary Dollar.  Part of a lot of 3 North Dakota MTC’s that also included the 1981 Bowbells and the standard Antiqued Brass version of the 1986 Rugby Two Dollars - all three of which are at least somewhat scarce.  This is the first appearance for the Finley which has an unknown mintage and a catalog value of $6.00 - and which I am going to raise up to $7.50 considering it has taken seven years for me to find one of these on Ebay.  The lot had a $13.95 plus $3.00 start and sold for the next increment, $14.45, after only two bids.

 

 

8/12/19

South Dakota.  1981 South Dakota Dollar (Aberdeen) Small Bust with Date Below Map Struck in Copper.  Not previously listed, and probably a trial piece in this metal.  It was in a lot of 2 pieces that also included a 1970 Rapid City 25th Anniversary of the Central States Fair Dollar - Tall thin letters variety where the “Y” touches the monument.  I was the only bidder at the $5.00 plus $3.00 opening bid.  Not a bad price for a piece that had not previously been reported!

 

 

8/13/19

Alaska. Anchorage.  1967 Alaska Purchase Centennial Private Issue O’Neills Trade Dollar good at the Brown Jug, the Green Bottle, the Richmond Lounge and the Shamrock Inn.  About Uncirculated.  This one numbered 3493.  Sold to a single bidder for the $2.10 plus $1.50 opening bid. 

 

 

8/13/19

Hawaii, Maui.  2002 Maui Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $1.21 plus 99¢ opening bid.

 

 

8/13/19

Illinois, Hometown.  Undated Lorettofest Silver Dollar Fun Money.  Listed in the last edition, but I think it will be dropped from the next because it does not seem to commemorate a community-wide event.  It seems to have been used exclusively at a private event conducted by the Our Lady of Loretto Catholic Church in Hometown, Illinois.  If it also noted a town anniversary, or other community event I’d list it, but for now I think it will be dropped from the listing.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value was $3.00.  This one started at 99¢ plus $3.99 postage and sold for $1.35 after 3 bids by 2 bidders.

 

 

8/13/19

Iowa, Burlington.  1964 126th Anniversary Half Dollar.  The start was $4.50 plus $2.98 for shipping.  After a week at this price, the seller lowered his start to $3.50 and that worked because the token sold at that price to a single bidder on August 27.

 

 

8/14/19

Alabama, Montgomery.  1961 Civil War Centennial Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder (who placed two bids) for the opening bid of $2.95 plus $3.82 shipping.

 

 

8/14/19

Montana, Fort Benton. 1971 125th Anniversary Dollar.  Nearly Uncirculated.  Start $9.99 plus $2.99 more for shipping.  Listed until September 2, when it was ended unsold.

 

 

8/15/19

Alaska, Matanuska Valley.  1985 50th Anniversary of the A.R.R.C. eight piece token set in original plastic holder numbered 127.  Start $9.99 with FREE shipping.  This set attracted 13 bids from 6 bidders and sold for $57.01.

 

 

8/15/19

Florida, Fort Pierce.  1963 125th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Start $9.74 with FREE shipping.  Listed at the same price until October 6 when the seller finally decided to take his coin off the market.

 

 

8/15/19

8/15/19

Kansas, Russell.  1971 Centennial Dollar.  Start 99¢ plus $3.50 postage.  Sold to a single bidder for the opening price.

 

 

8/15/19

Montana.  1964 Montana Statehood Dollar.  Start 99¢ plus $3.50 shipping.  Sold to a single bidder at the opening price, but he must have really wanted the coin because he placed 3 bids for it - only the first being used because nobody else bid.

 

 

8/16/19

Hawaii, Maui.  1975 Maui Dollar.  Regular antiqued brass version.  I couldn’t determine if it was the reeded edge or plain edge version.  Start $23.50 with FREE shipping.  There were no bids so on September 10 the seller lowered his starting bid to $23.25.  The next week it went up to $23.75., then back to $23.50, $23.25, $22.25, and then $21.25 where it remains as I type this report up.  The current listing ends on October 21.

 

 

8/16/19

Minnesota, Virginia.  1958 Iron Nickel struck in aluminum, as usual.  Offered as a So-Called Dollar, HK-518a.  Start $10.75 plus $3.75 shipping.  Listed until October 8, when the seller ended his listing without ever getting a bid.

 

 

8/16/19

Minnesota, Winona County.  1976 United States Bicentennial Dollar.  Start 99¢ plus $2.99 postage.  There were 4 bids placed by 2 bidders and this token sold for $2.19.

 

 

8/16/19

Nebraska, Blair.  1969 Nebraska Centennial Dollar.  Start 99¢ plus $2.99 postage.  There were 4 bids placed by 2 bidders and this token sold for $3.34.

 

 

8/16/19

Nebraska, Elgin.  1964 Diamond Jubilee Souvenir Coin ($1.00).  The start was a very high $15.00 plus $3.50 more for postage, which is no bargain either.  Offered by the same seller who successfully sold one for this price last month. But when nobody bid after a week this time, the seller ended this listing unsold. This token is hard to find, but I don't think it is worth $18.50...yet!

 

 

8/17/19

Alabama, Montgomery.  1961 Civil War Centennial Half Dollar.  Start 99¢ with FREE shipping.  After 8 bids by 3 bidders, this token sold for $5.50.

 

 

8/18/19

Idaho, Pritchard.  1996 Good For $20 In Trade, Good at Gloria’s Stakehouse, Pritchard Tavern and the Y-Bar - pretty much every business in town!  The start for this beautiful Proof silver token was $19.95 plus just 99¢ for postage.  After 6 bids by 4 bidders, it sold for $28.88.

 

 

8/18/19

Illinois, Mount Prospect.  1967 Golden Anniversary Commemorative Coin.   Start $10.00 with FREE shipping.  It remained at that start Until October 6 when the seller ended his listing unsold.

 

 

8/18/19

Montana.  1964 Montana Statehood Dollar struck in Sterling Silver.  About Uncirculated.  Start 1¢ plus $3.00 shipping.  After 6 bids by 4 bidders it sold for $8.50, which is below the melt value for this piece.

 

 

8/18/19

Oregon, Grants Pass.  1959 Oregon Statehood Half Dollar.  Encapsulated and graded MS-64 by NGC.  The start was 99¢ plus $3.95 shipping.  After 5 bids by 3 bidders, this certified token sold for $10.05.

Texas, Corpus Christi.  1947 Buccaneer Days 5¢, large letters version.  Offered for $5.00 plus $3.89 for postage.  It did not sell the first week, but it did sell to a single bidder during its second week on Ebay.

 

 

8/18/19

Washington, Spokane.  1984 One Silver Pegasus - Private issue for Pegasus Gold Corporation and its Mines in Montana.  At first glance it looks like a MTC - It has a denomination, of sorts, but does not commemorate anything nor does it seem to be a community issue, simply an advertising piece.  Not Listable.  This one ounce silver piece had a $49.95 plus $3.25 start and lasted until October 11 before the seller gave up and ended his listing.

 

 

8/19/19

Iowa, Emmetsburg.  1976 Bicentennial Irish Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Sold to a single bidder for the 99¢ plus $3.00 starting bid.

 

 

8/20/19

Nevada, Las Vegas. “1878” Las Vegas Dollar.  Two tone obverse with antiqued nickel silver for the rim and bright silver for the central “Morgan Dollar” design.  Extremely Fine. Start 1¢ plus $3.00 shipping.  After 7 bids by 5 bidders it sold for $8.27.

8/21/19

Kansas, Hays.  1967 Centennial Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $5.99 with FREE shipping start.

 

 

8/21/19

Nebraska, Crawford.  1960 Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar.  About Uncirculated, spotty.  Start was an enthusiastic $49.99 plus a very high $5.99 for shipping.  listed at the same start for a month and then ended unsold on September 22.

Texas (Childress).  1963 U. S. Highway 287 Souvenir Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $3.00 with FREE shipping start.

 

 

8/22/19

Alaska, Fort  Wainwright - Eielson Air Force Base.  1967 Alaska Purchase Centennial Good For One Haircut Token.  About Uncirculated.  Start 50¢ plus $3.99 shipping.  There were 4 bids placed by 3 bidders and this one sold really cheap for just $1.20.

 

 

8/22/19

Arizona, Mesa.  1978 Centennial Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $9.95 with FREE shipping start.

 

 

8/22/19

Illinois, Delavan.  1962 125th Anniversary Half Dollar.  A single bidder won it for the starting bid of $2.95 with FREE shipping.

 

 

8/22/19

Iowa, Kenset. 1972 Centennial Centennial Coin. Single “T” variety.  The start was $3.00 plus $1.00 shipping.  No bids the first week, but the second week someone spotted it, placed two bids, and won it for starting bid.  I now suspect that the mintage figure of 100 pieces is incorrect, and I will probably be dropping the catalog value from $8.50 to the $5.00 level of the correct “TT” variety.

 

 

8/22/19

Missouri, Kirkwood.  1965 Centennial Half Dollar. Tree variety.  The start was 50¢ plus $3.99 shipping and it sold for $1.55 after 3 bids by 2 bidders.

 

 

8/22/19

Nebraska, Plainview.  1961 Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar.  Extremely Fine/About Uncirculated, which is the typical grade of the survivors of this low mintage issue.  The start was just 50¢ plus $3.99 shipping, and it sold for $1.45 after 3 bids by 2 bidders.  Pretty cheap for this scarce token!  The same seller sold another one of these in the same condition a few days later (August 26) for $1.66 after 6 bids by 3 bidders.  Most collectors will have to settle for a used example of this issue.  Fully uncirculated examples are few and far between!

 

 

8/22/19

Nevada.  1964 Nevada Centennial Year Service Club Coin. Antiqued Brass version, a bit spotty.  It sold for the starting bid of $9.99 plus $3.70 shipping.

South Dakota, Sioux Falls.  1960-1961 Dakota Territory Centennial Half Dollar. Cooperating/dots variety, the scarcest of the 3 redeemable varieties.  Extremely Fine.  This one had a 50¢ plus $3.99 start and sold for 80¢ to the second bidder.  The seller offered another of these - except in nearly uncirculated condition - on the same day and at the same start, and it sold for 60¢ to the second bidder.  Both were new bidders - neither had bid on the previously offered token.

 

 

8/22/19

Nebraska, Beatrice.  1962 Centennial Dollar.  Well worn Very Fine to Extremely Fine condition.  Start 25¢ plus a steep $3.99 shipping fee.  The second bidder won this item for just 30¢ (plus the four bucks shipping).  Cheap start, but not a good deal at all with the high postal fee!

 

 

8/23/19

North Dakota, Edmore.  1972 Edmore Trade Dollar. Extremely Fine, lightly polished.  Unknown Mintage.  Catalog value $4.50.  This is the first appearance of one of these since I began these listings 7 years ago, so I guess I will be raising the price a bit.  This one started at $6.00 plus $3.00 shipping, attracted 5 bids from 2 bidders, and sold for $15.50.

 

 

8/23/19

Oregon, Albany.  1959 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar.  Extremely Fine condition.  Start 99¢ plus $3.99 for shipping.  It sold for the opening bid to the single bidder, who actually placed a second (unused) bid.

 

 

8/23/19

South Dakota, Sioux Falls.  1960-1961 Dakota Territory Centennial Half Dollar. Cooperating/circles variety, the most readily available of the 3 redeemable varieties.  About Uncirculated.  There was a 50¢ plus $3.99 start and it sold for that amount to the lone bidder - who had placed a second, unnecessary, bid. That bidder was also the winner (determined by feedback scores) of the Cooperating/Dots variety that sold yesterday.

8/26/19

Oregon, Brookings.  1976 U. S. A. Bicentennial Elks Club Dollar.  Even though a private issue, it commemorated the U. S. Bicentennial, so I suppose it must be listed.  After a 99¢ plus $3.50 start and 4 bids by 3 bidders, I won it for $3.41.

 

 

8/26/19

South Dakota, Fort Yankton.  Undated Two Bits in just Fine Condition.  Start 20¢ plus $3.99.  It sold for $2.77 after 8 bids by 3 bidders.

8/27/19

Nebraska, North Bend.  1956 Centennial Dollar.  After 3 bids by 2 bidders this one that started at 50¢ plus $3.99 shipping ended up selling for $1.11.  Sounds like a real bargain, but that comes to over five bucks when the postage is considered, and it ended up costing 80% of “catalog”.

 

 

8/27/19

Washington, Port Angeles.  1962 Centennial Dollar.  Spotty Uncirculated.  A single bidder took this one home fir the 99¢ plus $1.50 opening bid.

 

 

8/28/19

Alaska, Sitka.  1963 Alaska’s Historical Capital Dollar in original mailer and envelope, which are much rarer than the coin itself.  Start $1.50 plus $3.00 shipping.  The following week the start was lowered a bit, to $1.25, and the week after that to $1.00.  During its second week at that start, it was spotted by two bidders who both bid $2.00, so it sold to the original bidder.

8/28/19

Texas.  2001 Texas Dollar.  A one ounce .999 silver proof with an image of a cow’s skull.  A seldom offered piece from a set that was marketed to collectors of Western American art and artifacts, not to coin and medal collectors.  Too new to have been included in the last edition of my catalog, but listed at $25.00 in the draft for the next edition.  Priced as a Buy It Now item for $69.60 with FREE shipping.  A few weeks after I spotted this one, the listing was ended “because there was an error in the listing”.

 

 

8/28/19

Texas.  2004 Texas Dollar.  A .999 silver proof with an image of a cowgirl.  Listed at $25.00 in the draft for the next edition.  Priced as a Buy It Now item for $69.60 with FREE shipping, but eventually ended “because there was an error in the listing”.

 

 

8/28/19

Texas.  2005 Texas Dollar.  A .999 silver proof with an image of a cowgirl.  Listed at $25.00 in the draft for the next edition.  Priced as a Buy It Now item for $69.60 with FREE shipping, but when no one bought it the listing was ended “because there was an error in the listing”.

 

 

8/28/19

Virginia, Clifton.  Undated Confederate States of America Half Dollar design on the obverse with an ad for Colonel Steven Ellsworth’s coin shop and Civil War battlefield tours on the back.  Probably not eligible for listing as it does not quite commemorate anything (except by inference the Civil War and the Confederate Half Dollar).  But close enough for me to want to add it to my “wannabe” collection, so I bid, and as the sole bidder won it for the $4.99 plus $3.00 start.

 

 

8/29/19

Alaska, Skagway.  1974 Gateway to the Klondike Dollar.  Sold by a Canadian seller.  The token sold to a single bidder for the (U.S.) $6.11 plus $3.45 start.

8/29/19

Hawaii.  1875-1899 Princess Kaiulani Akaha Dala and a 1970 Menehune Money, both in Golden Aluminum, and both still sealed in their original display card mailers.  Sold for the opening bid of $14.99 plus $4.95 shipping.  Seems like a bargain compared to what these pieces have been bringing recently!

 

 

8/29/19

8/31/19

Maryland, Rockville.  1960 Centennial Half Dollar.  Available as a BIN item for $24.95 (or MAKE OFFER) with FREE shipping.  I have been watching this listing for well over a year, and in that period one of the two the seller had actually sold…in June of 2018 an offer was made (amount not disclosed) and refused, but in August of this year an offer was made and accepted, leaving one more to sell.  There are 7 collectors currently watching this item!  These do not show up all the time, but still $24.95 seems very high to me.  My catalog value of $4.50 will probably be going up to $5.00.

 

 

8/31/19

Maryland, Wicomico County Centennial Official Coin in Sterling Silver, numbered 18.  Extremely Fine.  Start $6.00 plus $3.00 shipping.  Four bidders placed six bids between them and his item sold cheap, bringing just $18.51.
