12/1/18

Oregon, Baker County.  2000 New Millennium Baker County ($2) Bucks in golden brass, About Uncirculated.  Start $6.55 plus $2.95 shipping.  It has not sold and remains available for a slightly lower start - $5.55 - until at least February 2.

 

 

12/2/18

Indiana, Crawfordsville.  1965 Centennial Half Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Start $19.95 with FREE shipping.  It lasted until January 29 before the seller gave up and ended his listing unsold at the same opening bid he started with.  This one would not have been an easy sell even if it were fully Uncirculated, and priced at a quarter of this seller’s opening bid.

 

 

12/2/18

Ohio, Geneva.  Undated (1973) Tenth Anniversary Grape Jamboree Quarter.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog Value $3.50.  Offered for $4.99 plus $2.99 shipping.  No bids.  Not relisted.  Now I wish I had bid!

 

 

12/2/18

Pennsylvania, Halifax.  1969 175th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Extremely Fine. The image with a slightly golden tone.  If this was a golden brass or gold plated piece, it would be an unlisted variety.  Other nickel silver tokens in this seller’s listings also appeared a bit gold-ish, so I decided it was just a trick of the lighting.  I hope I was right!  It sold for the opening price of $1.99 plus $1.50.  Now I wish I had bid so I could be certain it was not an unlisted metal! 

 

 

12/2/18

Virginia, Williamsburg. 1999 (2000) Colonial Williamsburg Founders’ Coin.   Start $1.00 plus $3.00 shipping.  Sold to a single bidder for the opening price.

 

 

12/3/18

Alaska, Anchorage.  1967 Alaska Purchase Centennial Good For one Drink at the Oriental Gardens.  Variety with number, date and Seward Highway on obverse and Alaska Centennial on the reverse.  This one is  number 446 ( seller notes that he also has number 392 available as well).  This AU example had a start of $5.99 plus 95¢ postage.  No one bid at first, so after a couple weeks the seller reduced the start to $4.99, and that did it because it received a bid during the second week at this price and sold for the opening bid.

 

 

12/3/18

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1972 London Bridge Dollar.  Start $4.99, postage $2.99 more.  Listed until December 31 when the seller ended his listing unsold.

 

 

12/3/18

Indiana, New Albany.  1963 Sesquicentennial Nickel.  Extremely Fine, or nearly so. Start $2.00 plus 50¢ postage.  After one week, the seller lowered the start to $1.00 and continued to offer it until December 30, when the listing was ended unsold.

 

 

12/3/18

Michigan, Harrisville.  1952 Kiki Cuyler Half Dollar.  An especially choice AU/UNC example.  I bought it as a duplicate for the $9.49 plus $3.00 opening bid.  A few days later, on December 7, a heavily bagmarked About Uncirculated example was offered by another seller. After a 99¢ with FREE shipping start, it sold for $3.55 after 3 bids by 2 bidders.

 

 

 

12/3/18

Oregon, Klamath Falls.  1933 Captain O. C. Applegate Wooden Quarter.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously listed.  Start $9.99 plus $1.00 shipping.  Sold to the second bidder for $10.51.

 

 

12/4/18

Alaska, Anchorage.  1961 Shrine Circus Quarter. About Uncirculated.  Start $4.00 plus $3.50 shipping.  No bids and not relisted.  This token will not be listed because it appears to be a merchant token, not a MTC.

 

 

12/4/18

West Virginia, Kanawha.  1963 West Virginia Centennial Half Dollar.  A choice, gemmy specimen.  Start $5.50.  Postage $2.95.  Sold to the second bidder for $10.85.  On December 12 the same seller offered another one that sold to a single bidder for the opening bid of $5.50 plus $2.95.

 

 

12/5/18

Alaska, Matanuska Valley.  1985 ARRC 50th Anniversary Set, 1¢ to $10.00.  Its holder is numbered 1658.  Starting bid $125.55 plus $7.25 shipping.  It became a BIN item and sold on December 27, after price reductions, for $79.16 - however the same numbered set came back a couple weeks later - and it is now available for a BIN price of $75.55 plus $7.25.  The current ending date is March 5.

 

 

12/5/18

Alaska, Sitka.  1957 Alaska Day Dollar.  Extremely Fine.  Start $10.00 plus $3.50.  No bids the first week, but during its second week someone spotted it and bid - twice - winning it for the opening price.

 

 

12/5/18

12/5/18

Nebraska, Johnson County. 1967 Nebraska Centennial Dollar.  Start 99¢ plus $2.99 shipping. The second bidder won it for $1.04. 

 

 

12/6/18

Alaska, Anchorage.  1967 Anchorage Exposition Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Start $12.99 with FREE shipping.  When no one bid it was made a Buy It Now item for the same price.  As I type this up on February 3, there is now a “Best Offer” option as well.

 

 

12/6/18

Colorado.  Undated Rocky Mountain Coin $5.00.  Serial numbered 955 on a raised bar on the obverse.  A new one to me.  I was pleased to be the only bidder and won it for the  $10.00 with FREE shipping start.

12/6/18

Oklahoma, Lawton.  1976 Bicentennias $1.00 Discount token at Lawton Coin Mart.  A Patrick Mint product.  Mintage 1,000.  Not previously listed.  I was the only bidder at the $5.95 with FREE shipping start.

12/8/18

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1973 Black Pewter “Proof” London Bridge Dollar. Mintage 100.  Catalog value $25.00.  Start $8.00 with FREE shipping.  I won it for $11.50 after 6 bids by 4 bidders.  These “proof” pieces are not proof - in fact they are inferior in detail to the regular issue!  They were ordered by the issuer when their supply of the original issues were sold out. 

 

 

12/8/18

Illinois, Mt. Olive.  1965 Centennial Half Dollar Struck In Silver, numbered 7 on the obverse.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $20.00.  Start $9.95.  Postage $3.50.  Since no one else was bidding I was certain that the $38.88 I bid to add it to my duplicate box would be more than enough to take it.  But no, a second bidder appeared and won it for the next bid increment, $39.88! 

 

 

12/8/18

Texas, San Antonio.  1977 Texas Folklife Festival Dollar.  Mintage 5,000.  Catalog value $2.50.  The start was 95¢ plus $3.25 for this About Uncirculated example.  Sold to a single bidder - who placed two bids - for the opening price.  I am considering dropping this series because they appear to be more like merchant tokens than a generally circulating community coin.

 

 

12/8/18

West Virginia.  1963 Centennial Dollar in yellow plastic.  Sold to a single bidder for the $3.95 plus $1.00 opening bid.

 

 

12/9/18

Minnesota, Hawley.  1972 Centennial Half Dollar in Antiqued Brass.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $8.00.  I don’t understand why, but I was the only bidder for this scarce item at the 99¢ plus $3.50 opening bid.  This is the first time any of the 3 varieties of the Hawley Centennial Half Dollar has appeared as an auction item on Ebay in the 6 years I have been making these lists.

 

 

12/10/18

Kansas.  1961 Official Centennial Coin for Atchison County.  Not one of the scarcer issues, but these do not show up every day.  Part of a lot of 20 Kansas tokens, the only MTC in the lot.  The start was 99¢ plus $3.75, and after 15 bids by 4 bidders they sold for $35.99. 

 

 

12/10/18

Michigan, Algonac.  1967 Centennial Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $5.99 plus 99¢ shipping charge.

 

 

12/11/18

Hawaii, Maui.  2000 Maui Dollar.  In vinyl “flip” with Certificate of Authenticity.  The starting bid was $4.00 plus $3.94 shipping.  Listed Until January 10 before the seller gave up and ended his listing unsold.  Every single time this piece was listed, Ebay offered an alternate specimen for $10.00 plus $3.50 Buy It Now.  That one remains available as I type these notes up on February 5.

 

 

12/11/18

Nevada, Las Vegas.  “1978” Las Vegas Dollar.  Variety with a silvery replica of an 1878 Morgan dollar surrounded by a darker antiwue bronze border.  The reverse blank except fora central area where it looks like a bolo tie clasp was supposed to be added with the inscription C & J CREATIONS    LAS VEGAS, NV. below.  I won this piece as the second bidder for just $1.04 plus $1.00 after a 99$ flus $1.00 shipping start.  Unfortunately, I still need this variety, because they send a different piece - which I also needed - so I didn't complain.  I've been watching to see if they offer the original piece again, but so far they haven't.

 

 

12/12/18

Hawaii.  “1883” King Kalakaua Akahi Dala in golden Bronze.  Short denticles version.  With a 99¢ plus $1.00 start, it sold for $3.00 after 6 bids by 3 bidders.

 

 

12/13/18

Alaska, Fairbanks.  1962 America’s Last Frontier Dollar.  About Uncirculated condition.  Sold to a single bidder for the $2.99 plus $2.67 start.

 

 

12/13/18

Oregon, North Bend.  1959 Oregon Centennial Wooden Half Dollar Coin.  Start $3.88 plus $3.00 more for shipping.  There were two bids and it sold for $4.25.

 

 

12/14/18

Nevada, Sparks.  1966 Fourth of July Half Dollar, unnumbered version.  Start $3.99 plus $4.76 for shipping.  When no one bought it after a couple weeks, the seller made it a BIN item for $9.99 plus $4.76.  Again nobody bought it, so the seller thought real hard and decided to raise the price again - this time to $11.99 plus $4.76.  It will be available until March 6 at this price, so if you want it you had better buy it quick, before it goes up to $14.99!

 

 

12/14/18

Washington, Walla Walla.  1959 Centennial 59¢ Buck struck in aluminum.  Start $10.00 plus $2.75.  Still available at the same start nearly two months down the line.  The current listing ends on February 8.

 

 

12/15/18

12/16/18

Alaska, Anchorage.  1967 Dave’s Alaskan Trade Dollar numbered 1341.  Sold to a single bidder for the $3.00 plus $5.00 start.  The five bucks shipping fee was because the item was mailed from Canada.  If the buyer was also in Canada, his postal fee would be lower.

 

 

12/16/18

Arizona, Prescott.  Undated Frontier Days Slippery Gulch 100 Bucks.  XF/AU or so - looks cleaned.  Start $1.05 plus $2.85 shipping.  No bids.  Still available for the same start as of February 10.

 

 

12/16/18

Arizona, Tombstone.  “1879” Helldorado Days Dollar struck in copper.  Start $9.99, postage $3.50. There were two bids and it sold for $10.50.  The seller called it an unlisted So-Called Dollar.

12/16/18

North Dakota, Jamestown.  1976 American Legion Bicentennial Conference Golden Aluminum BOOZE token, About Uncirculated.  I was the only one interested at the $5.00 plus $3.00 opening bid.  Perhaps one I can include in the listing.

 

 

12/16/18

Ohio, Hamilton.  1966 175th Anniversary  Dollar Struck in Silver, numbered 03.  I was the only bidder and won it for the opening bid of $19.99 plus $3.95.  Amazing!

 

 

12/16/18

Texas, Mineral Wells.  1925 Dime.  Nice Very Fine.  Start $17.99 plus $2.75.  There were 5 bids by as many bidders and it ended up selling for $37.88.  That was me in there bidding $36.88 as a duplicate.   

 

 

12/17/18

Colorado, Fort Morgan.  1959 Rush to the Rockies Centennial Half Dollar.  The same one listed on October 18 which the seller is calling a So-Called Dollar. HK-544.  It is not he aSo-Called Dollar.  While they do share one side, the reverse of the SCD is blank.  This one has the standard 50¢ redemption information.  It is now on a 10% off sale, so now the start has fallen to $67.50 with FREE shipping.  Still no bids, with the new closing date February 15.

 

 

12/17/18

Hawaii, Maui.  1973 Dollar Set, Bronze, Gold Plate, and Silver.  Low, rounded clouds with number on bar - these were all numbered 091.  This set, in the original snap-lock holder, started at $4.99 plus $4.06 shipping.  There were 8 bids by 4 bidders, and I walked off with this set for $23.50 - too cheap!

 

 

12/17/18

12/18/18

Alaska, Ketchikan.  1970 Gateway to Adventure $2.00, set of Antiqued Brass and Silver.  Mintage for the antiqued brass piece was just 25 pieces, and the silver one 100 pieces.  Currently they catalog $75.00 for the antiqued brass one and $35.00 for the silver.  Neither have appeared on this listing before.  When these came out I was actively collecting MTCs, but while the cost from the issuer was face value for the standard nickel silver issue, the silver one was $15.00 and the antiqued brass one was an incredible $50.00.  At that time I was just out of the Air Force and was a full-time college student and working 24 hours a week as a janitor at a motel, and while the two bucks for the standard issue wasn’t much of a problem, I really had to scrounge to come up with $15.00 for the silver one.  I wanted the antique brass one too, but at $50,  it was pretty much out of the question - at that time you could buy uncirculated U. S. twenty dollar gold pieces for $65.00!  So I had to do without it, figuring that down the line someplace I’d come up with another.  Well, over the next 48 years of actively collecting MTCs I never saw one or even heard of one in someone’s collection, so I was very excited when this lot appeared on Ebay.  The start for the pair was $45.00 (plus $5.00 postage) - less than they were issued for way back then!  So I placed my bid, many multiples of the starting bid, and when the sale ended - - - - I was the ONLY bidder and won it for the opening bid!  I don’t understand it - a legitimately scarce MTC from a very popular state on sale for less than what it cost 50 years ago, and nobody wanted it!  At $75.00 it was the highest priced MTC in the catalog (other than the gold issues, of course) and nobody wanted it but me.  Now that there is actually an example in the hands of a MTC collector, and it sold for a relatively low price, I guess the catalog value will have to be lowered.  Note***while this piece is the highest-priced non-gold MTC, it is far from the rarest.  Many unique and near unique MTCs catalog for much less because they are not known, not appreciated, and ignored by collectors.  It probably won’t stay that way forever, so I suggest that when you have an opportunity to pick up scarce issues, or high condition examples of more common pieces you should do so. 

 

 

12/18/18

Alaska, Kodiak.  1965 Plywood Palace Days One Snort Rain Check, aluminum.  Start $5.00.  No bids.  Not relisted.

 

 

12/18/18

Alaska, North Pole.  1963 Santa Claus House Dollars, set of golden brass and sterling silver.  Number not mentioned and not clear if they were the “dots” or “no dots” variety.  Start $25.00 plus $3.50 shipping.  No bids.  Not relisted.

 

 

12/18/18

Arizona, Tucson.  1933 Wolfville Western Days Dollar.  A choice AU/UNC example, apparently with much of the original luster - but maybe just cleaned like most of them are.    Offered for $80.00 with FREE shipping.  No bids.  Not relisted. 

 

 

12/19/18

Colorado, Denver.  1976 Bronco Buck Sports Schedule.  Extremely Fine / About Uncirculated condition.  Start $5.55 plus $2.90.  No bids.  Relisted the following week for $4.16, plus a slightly higher postal charge, $2.95, and that did the trick - it sold to a single bidder.  I’m still monitoring these, but I don’t think they will be included in the catalog.

 

 

12/19/18

Colorado, Victor 1993 City of Mines Lesher Dollar Commemorative, numbered 109.  This one uncirculated but with a couple of gouges on the obverse rim - looks like someone wanted to see if it was silver all the way through!  The start was $19.95 with FREE shipping.  After 7 bids by 4 bidders it sold for $58.00.

 

 

12/20/18

Indiana, Orleans.  1965 Sesquicentennial Quarter.  The seller said it was used, but it looked uncirculated to me.  The start was $1.99 plus $2.67 shipping.  After 7 bids by 3 bidders, it sold for a noteworthy $10.01.

 

 

12/21/18

Hawaii.  1970 Menehune Money.  Start $3.88 plus $3.00 shipping.  There were 10 bids placed by 4 bidders and it sold for $21.00.  I catalog these for $3.50, and the two pieces that I have seen on Ebay have both sold for much more.  Looks like the one is in for a price increase in the next edition.

 

 

12/21/18

Nebraska, Nuckolls County.  1971 Centennial Dollar in antiqued brass, numbered edge (39).  The numbered edge version not previously cataloged.  The regular issue catalogs for $17.50.  Unknown mintage.  The start was 99¢ plus $2.99 shipping.  I won it for the incredibly low price of $1.04 as just the second bidder! 

 

 

12/21/18

Nebraska, Nuckolls County.  1971 Centennial Dollar in antiqued silver, numbered 39 on the edge.  Not previously cataloged in this metal.  Unknown mintage.  The start was 99¢ plus $2.99 shipping.  After 5 bids by 5 bidders, I was the lucky one who won this treasure for $77.76!  Just to further illustrate the lack of interest in even the rarer MTCs, the bids for this piece were $3.00, $7.75, $15.56, and $76.76 - followed by my winning bid for an advance of $1.00 over the second place bid.  If I had not bid, this piece would have sold for $16.01. It is interesting to note that three of those bids were at or below the value of the silver in the piece, with only one other serious bidder who realized how scarce this token was.

 

 

 

12/21/18

1974 South Dakota, 1875 North Dakota, and 1976 Montana Seventh Cavalry Dollars struck in copper - all three housed in a single heavy plastic holder.  The start was $50.00 plus $7.90 shipping, or you could Buy It Now for $100.00 plus the postage.  No bids.  It came back 2 more times at the same price, then the seller lowered his start to $45.00 for a couple weeks.  Then the start was further reduced to $40.00.  After two weekly listings at this level, the seller ended this set unsold.

 

 

2/22/18

Hawaii.  1883 / 1980 King Kalakaua Akahi Dala in antiqued nickel-silver.  In a sliding-top plastic case inscribed A. N. A. CONVENTION / HONOLULU FEB. 1981.  Nothing special about the coin - just the standard 1883 / 1980 Dala (in the most easily found finish) in an inscribed holder.  Start $55.00 with FREE shipping.  No bids.  Relisted at the same price until February 10, when the seller ended his listing without a sale.

 

 

12/22/18

Minnesota.  1958 Minnesota  Centennial Uniface “Dollar”, golden brass, unholed.  HK-517.  Extremely fine/About Uncirculated.  Start $9.99 plus $2.80.  After 4 bids by 4 bidders it sold for $17.70.

 

 

12/22/18

Pennsylvania, Burnham.  1961 Golden Jubilee Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.50.  When I realized that this was the first appearance of this issue in my monthly listings, I bid and won it as the only bidder for the $6.00 plus $1.00 opening bid.  Cheap, I guess.

 

 

12/22/18

United States / USSR. 1988 Disarmament Dollar / Ruble.  Inscribed “Made of missile metal”.  Bilingual inscriptions.  Start $16.00 plus $7.00 shipping from Estonia.  There were 2 bids by 2 bidders and it sold for $17.50.  I don’t know if this is listable or not, but it is a possibility. 

 

 

12/23/18

12/23/18

South Dakota, Sioux Falls.  1961 (60) Dakota Territory Centennial Half Dollar, cooperating version - circles variety.  The start was 1¢ plus $3.99 shipping - and that is exactly what it sold for to the single person who bid.  A couple days later, on December 27, another one of the same variety sold to a single bidder at the $1.99 with FREE shipping start.

12/25/18

Florida, Indian Rocks Beach (Clearwater…).  1960 Land Lubber Souvenir Treasure Coin.  Extremely Fine.  These coins were hidden on the beach during the Tri-City (Clearwater, Tampa, St. Petersburg) Fiesta.  The ones with this reverse were just souvenirs, but others were redeemable for a silver dollar.  Start $2.99, postage $2.99 again.  There were no bids, but it is still available as a BIN item for the same price, however the postage has been raised to $4.55.  The current listing set to end on March 3.

12/25/18

Nebraska, Gordon.  1960 Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar, about uncirculated.  Start 99¢ with a postal charge of $3.00.  There were no bids, so the seller raised his start to $2.99 and his postal charge to $3.50 and listed it a while longer.  The item ended unsold on January 18.  The seller described it as an anniversary token for a jewelry store in Nebraska.

 

 

12/26/18

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  Mixed lot of 15 London Bridge Dollars from 1976 to 2007.  Not all years and at least one duplicate.  The start was just 99¢, but the postage was $7.90.  There were 5 bids placed by 3 bidders, and the lot sold for a reasonable $16.38.  Many were later dates, which are harder to find than the early years.

 

 

12/27/18

Wyoming, Gillette.  1966 75th Anniversary Half Buck, about uncirculated.  Start $3.99, but postage $3.99 more.  Listed until January 26 before the seller gave up and ended his listing.  Kinda hard to sell an about uncirculated one for $7.98 or more while another seller had been offering a couple uncirculated ones as BIN items for $3.94 plus 56¢ each.  Those remain available until February 24 for one and March 6 for the other.
