MTCs on Ebay January 2021

1/1/21

Alaska, Fairbanks.  1959 Statehood Dollar.  NGC has slabbed it and assigned a MS-63 grade - but it does not come close to that.  There is general wear overall, enough to even remove some of the gilt plating between the letters of the inscriptions, as well as being graced by a couple carbon spots.  Honestly, an AU-50 token, and true uncirculated examples are very widely available for under $5.00 as this is one of the most common of all MTC’s.  Sold to a single bidder for the $15.99 with FREE shipping start.

 

 

1/1/21

Hawaii, Hilo.  1973 Hilo Dollar Numbered 408 on the number bar and struck in Sterling Silver.  Start $29.88 plus $3.86 shipping.  After 5 bids by 4 bidders the token sold for $44.87.

 

 

1/1/21

Michigan, Upper Peninsula.  Undated Upper Peninsula Dollar, side view of eagle.  Start 69¢ plus 69¢ more for shipping.  A total of 7 bids were placed by 2 bidders and it sold for $5.50.

 

 

1/1/21

Vermont, Bennington.  1961 Bicentennial Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the starting price of 1¢!  Unfortunately the shipping price of $3.39 took it out of the giveaway category.

 

 

1/2/21

Massachusetts, Pittsfield-Berkshire.  1961 Bicentennial Half Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Start 1¢ plus $3.39.  It sold to the second bidder for $2.06.  I see (from the feedback scores) that the same bidder who won the Bennington, Vermont MTC yesterday for just a penny won this as well.

 

 

1/2/21

Washington, Whidbey Island. 1936 Coupeville Indian Festival Half Dollar.  Extremely Fine.  There were no bids at the $49.99 ($74.99 BIN) start, so the seller ended his listing after just one time around. 

 

 

1/2/21

Uncertain State, Boulder Valley City.  Undated Two Bits.  A nice XF/AU example.  Offered as a Montana token.  Start $2.99 plus $3.00 shipping.  After 16 bids by 9 bidders, this token sold for $200.50.

 

 

1/3/21

Hawaii.  1984 Queen Liliuokalani 25th Anniversary of Statehood Dala.  Golden brass edition.  Sold to a single bidder for the $4.99 plus $3.00 starting bid.

 

 

1/3/21

Kansas.  1961 Official Centennial Coin for Crawford County.  Start $10.00 plus $4.95 shipping. Listed at this price until February 10 with no bids, so the seller ended his listing unsold.

 

 

1/3/21

Maryland, Wiilliamsport.  1962 Civil War Centennial Half Dollar.  One side choice Uncirculated, but spotted on the reverse from storage in a foam-backed snap-lock coin container.  Start 99¢ plus $4.55 shipping.  There were 3 bids by 3 bidders and it sold for $5.99.

 

 

1/3/21

Missouri, Freistatt.  2000 Lion’s Club Ernte Fest Bier Token.  Gold anodized aluminum.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously cataloged in my list.  Sold to a single bidder for the $8.95 with FREE shipping start.

 

 

1/3/21

North Carolina, Halifax County.  1958 Bicentennial Half Dollar.  Listed for a single week at $3.95 plus $3.00, then ended unsold for lack of interest.  

 

 

1/3/21

North Dakota, Enderlin.  1966 Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $3.49 with FREE shipping start.

 

 

1/3/21

Texas, Frio County.  1971 Centennial Dollar.  Unknown Mintage, catalog value $8.50.  Offered as one item in a two piece lot of Texas medals - the other not being an MTC.  The start was $5.00 plus $3.50 shipping.  There were no bids and unfortunately the lot was not relisted.  I sent the seller a note to see if he would re-list the lot.  We’ll see….Yep - he relisted it and I won it for the $5.00 plus $3.50 start.  Good deal!

 

 

1/4/21

Nebraska, Schuyler-Colfax County.  1979 Centennial Dollar, About Uncirculated.  After a $9.99 plus $4.25 start three bids were placed - one for $21.11 the second for $21.61, with a third bid placed by the second bidder just in case somebody else bid - fortunately (for him) no one did.

 

 

1/5/21

Washington, Aberdeen.  1933 Old Ironsides/Samuel Benn Quarter.  Sold to a single bidder for the $9.99 plus $3.50 opening bid.

 

 

1/6/21

Hawaii.  1883 / 1980 King Kalakaua Akahi Dala. Antiqued Nickel-silver.  Sold to a single bidder for the $4.99 plus $3.50 opening bid.

 

 

1/6/21

Michigan, Lake Linden - Schoolcraft Township.  1966 Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $16.00.  Postage $3.00.  I was not surprised that there were no bids at this starting price, but someone did bid the following week and won it for the opening price!   Ebay is suggesting another one that is available right now as a Buy It Now item for $1.50 plus $2.49 which seems pretty reasonable for a 55 year old token choice uncirculated token with a mintage of just 1,500 pieces.

 

 

1/6/21

New York, Beacon.  1963 golden Jubilee Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $8.99 plus $4.45 shipping opening bid.

 

 

1/6/21

New York, New York City.  1909 Hudson-Fulton/Sommers Islands Mule struck in Copper.  Start $15.00 plus $3.20 shipping.  It sold for $19.27 after 4 bids by 3 bidders.

 

 

1/7/21

Alabama, Montgomery.  1961 Civil War Centennial Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $3.95 plus $3.85 start.

 

 

1/7/21

Nebraska, Chadron.  1960 Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar, Silver Plated Version.  Start $9.99 plus $4.45 shipping.  It sold for $13.50 after 6 bids by 2 bidders. 

 

 

1/7/21

Texas, Winkler County.  1960 Golden Jubilee Half Dollar.  Start $3.00 plus $1.00 shipping.  Listed with no bids until February 18 when the seller finally gave up and ended the listing unsold.  Too bad, it was a nice, choice example.

 

 

1/8/21

Hawaii.  Set of 5 golden brass dollars in a plastic case labelled COINS OF HAWAII / STATE OF HAWAII.  It included golden brass versions of the Hilo, Honolulu, Kauai and Maui Dollars, all lacking the Chamber of Commerce line and an “1883” King Kalakaua reproduction Akahi Dala, short denticles version.  Sold to a single bidder for the $23.75 plus $15.84 starting bid.  The seller was in Australia, which accounts for the high postage costs to America, so I hope it sold to a collector in Australia, so he did not have to pay the high international postage on these 5 common tokens.  Another very similar lot was sold today by a Canadian seller that had the same four local Dollars, but the reproduction Akahi Dala is absent - but replaced by an undated Aloha Dollar which matches the other 4 tokens, and is the token that is usually present in these sets.  This had an $8.03 plus $15.92 (U.S.) start, and sold to a second bidder for $8.36.  Again, I hope this sold to an in-country buyer, as the very high post charge would hopefully be much less.

 

 

1/8/21

North Dakota, Williston.  1961 Dakota Territory Centennial / 10 Years of Oil Half Dollar.  Heavily toned About Uncirculated.  Start $3.99 with FREE shipping. Two bidders placed 4 bids between them and it sold for $4.25.

 

 

1/8/21

Indiana, Portland - Jay County.  1966 State Sesquicentennial Quarter.  Choice Uncirculated on the obverse, the reverse for some reason loosing its golden plating.  Sold for the $3.99 with FREE shipping Buy It Now price.  The same seller had been offering another example, this one in only lusterless Extremely Fine condition for $7.99, again with FREE shipping, that immediately went on a 5% off sale, and then was ended because “there was an error in the listing” - but it came back anyway for just $3.99.  The lower price worked because it only lasted 2 days at that price before someone bought it. 

 

 

1/9/21

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1972 London Bridge Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $4.95 plus $3.80 opening bid.

 

 

1/9/21

California, Auburn.  1966 Gold Rush Days Souvenir Coin.  Start $2.25 plus $1.50.  Three bids were placed by as many bidders and it sold for $2.81.

 

 

1/9/21

Illinois, Roodhouse.  1966 Centennial ‘Redeemable in Trade” Token.  About Uncirculated.  Start $2.25 plus $1.50.  The second bidder pushed the sale price up to $3.25.

 

 

1/9/21

Ohio, Newcomerstown.  1964 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Sold to a single bidder for the opening bid of $2.25 plus $1.50.

 

 

1/9/21

Wisconsin, Menomonee Falls.  1967 Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar.  Start $2.25 plus $1.50.  There were 4 bids placed by 2 bidders and it sold for $5.00.

 

 

1/10/21

Alaska, Indian.  1967 Alaska Purchase Centennial  One Drink token private issue from Jim’s Saloon.  There were a pair of these tokens, one Extremely Fine and the other About Uncirculated, numbered 1253 and 1433.  Start $5.99 plus $2.95.  No one bid the first week, so the lot was made a Buy It Now item for the same cost and it sold after just 5 more days.

 

 

1/10/20

Hawaii, Honolulu.  1975 Hawaii Dollar.  Large, low date.  Sold to a single bidder for the $2.25 plus $1.50 start.

 

 

1/10/21

Hawaii, Kona Coast.  1979 Kona Dollar in Chrome Plate.  Start 99¢ plus $3.00 shipping.  I was the second bidder and took it away for $3.58.

 

 

1/10/21

Hawaii, Maui.  2003 Maui Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the 99¢ plus $4.45 shipping start.

 

 

1/10/20

Illinois, Mineral.  Undated 5¢ that was “Good For 5¢ In Trade” at “Any Business House In Mineral, Illinois”.  Probably not a Municipal, but it caught my attention since it was good anywhere in the town, which hit its peak population of 349 in 1910.  Aluminum, eight-scalloped, merchant token style that appears to be from the 1920’sor 30’s.  The start was 99¢ plus $2.95 and it sold for $27.00 after 8 bids by 4 bidders.  

 

 

1/10/21

Minnesota, Litchfield.  1969 Centennial Half Dollar.  One item in a lot of 9 miscellaneous tokens - the only MTC in the lot.  Start $9.95 plus $4.20 shipping.  Starting at a price over what I wanted to pay for another duplicate, I left this one for someone else.  Three weeks later it was still available, and I thought “What the heck -“ , placed a bid and won it for the opening bid of $9.99 plus $4.20.  I don’t mind the $9.99 cost, but the $4.20 postage bugs me!

 

 

1/10/21

Ohio, Loudonville.  1964 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $2.25 plus $1.50 opening bid.

 

 

1/10/21

Wyoming, Thermopolis.  1967 Rodeo Days Dollar.  Start $2.25 plus $1.50, but it sold to the second bidder for $4.13. 

 

 

1/11/21

New Mexico, Carlsbad.  1963 75th Anniversary Half Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Start 99¢ plus 70¢ shipping.  This one had a strong coppery color in the images, so I bid thinking it might be a metal variety.  I won it for the opening price, which was cheap enough, but when it arrived it turned out to be the standard golden brass variety.

 

 

1/11/21

Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.  1926 Treasure Island Doubloon token.  The most available two-sided version.  Extremely Fine with some significant edge nicks.  Start 99¢ with FREE shipping.  It sold for $12.15 after 7 bids by 5 bidders.

 

 

1/12/21

Arkansas.  Undated Arkansas Razorbuck/ Arkansas Dollar.  Silver.  Mintage 6,500.  Catalog value $17.50, based on 20 year old silver value.  Despite the relatively high mintage, this piece seldom appears - this being the first one I have noted on Ebay since starting these listings in 2012.  This example was probably carried around as a pocket piece for some time as it showed slight wear and surface abrasions.  It had a very high $99.99 plus $9.10 start, but did find a single bidder during its third listing.

  

 

1/12/21

Hawaii, Hilo.  1975 Hilo Dollar with reverse date, apparently struck in Antiqued Silver Plate.  Extremely Fine.  Described by the seller as being struck in Bronze - but the image looked like the scarcer Antique silver plate version with places where the underlying brass was wearing through.  Sold to a single bidder for the $5.00 plus $3.50 start. 

 

 

1/12/21

Minnesota, Virginia.  1958 Iron Nickel.  About Uncirculated, scratched.  Start $78.88 plus $4.99.  No bids and not relisted.

 

 

1/12/21

Montana.  1964 Montana Territory Centennial. State 75th Anniversary Dollar in Sterling Silver.  Numbered 381.  The seller states the mintage is 500 pieces and that it is a R-9 (he later changed it to R-8) token, but I list it as having a mintage of 1,000 - which I actually suspect is lower than its true mintage.  Start $34.75 plus $3.50.  For the listing ending February 22, the start was reduced to $32.50 where it remains eight weeks after its original listing.

 

1/12/21

South Dakota, Fort Yankton.  Undated Four Bits.  Extremely Fine.  Sold to a single bidder for the $2.25 plus $1.50 starting bid.

 

 

1/12/21

Washington, Yakima.  1985 Commemorative Coin.  A pair of these, one of each of the two composition varieties.  I was the only bidder interested at the $9.95 plus $3.50 start.  Apparently an unloved token as I was the only bidder each time these scarce tokens have appeared on Ebay - which I have only noted as an auction item 2 previous times, each of which were for a different finish variety while this lot was for a set of both. 

 

 

1/13/21

Alaska, Sitka.  Alaska Day Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Start $8.00 plus $3.00 shipping.  Still available eight weeks later as a Buy It Now item at the same cost.

 

 

1/13/21

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1972 London Bridge Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Start $1.00 plus $1.50 shipping.   Still available two months later for the same opening bid.

 

 

1/13/21

West Virginia, Williamson.  1969 75th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Start $2.35 plus $3.15 postage.  Two bidders each placed a bid and it sold for $4.35.  Five days later another was offered by a different seller - it had a $3.00 plus $1.25 start, attracted 7 bids from two bidders, and sold for $9.85.  Based on their feedback scores, neither was one of the bidders on the previously offered token.

 

 

1/14/21

Hawaii.  1991 King Kalakaua Akahi Royal Hawaiian Silver Dala.  Buy It Now $765.00 plus $4.45 shipping.  Still available two months later for the same price.

 

 

1/15/21

Nevada, Carson City.  1967 Centennial Trade Dollar.  Start $7.87 plus $3.12.  Still available for the same cost, now as a BIN item, two months later.

 

 

1/15/21

Oregon, Union County.  1993 Sesquicentennial $2.00 in antiqued brass.  Start $5.00 plus $3.00 shipping.  After 7 bids by 2 bidders it sold for $36.00.  Wow!

 

 

1/16/21

New York, New York City.  1909 Henry Hudson/Sommers Islands Mule in copper.  Choice Uncirculated condition.  Start $1.00 plus $4.45 postage.  There were 18 bids by 8 bidders and the token sold for $21.50.

 

 

1/17/21

Minnesota.  1958 Uniface Centennial Obverse Design in Golden Brass.  No hole.  Graded MS-65 by NGC.  The same one listed for just one week ending December 6, 2020.  Start now  $20 less - $145.00 plus $7.40 shipping.  There were no bids so the start was lowered to  $135.00.  When no one bid at this level the listing was ended unsold again.

 

 

1/17/21

Wyoming, Cody.  Undated Days of ’49 Ten Cents in Fun token.  Extremely Fine with some luster remaining.  Sold to a single bidder for the $9.99 plus $4.69 start.

 

 

1/18/21

(North Dakota).  1972 Souvenir Dollar of the Dakota Central Coin Club.  Pioneer scene superimposed on a map of 5 North Dakota counties.  Looks like a municipal token, says Souvenir Dollar right on it, but it does not seem to commemorate a specific event.  I probably will list it just so people don’t report it as a new listing.  This was the usual nickel-silver issue that had a reasonable $2.50 start, but a $7.50 postage charge.  After two more listings the seller lowered the start to $2.00, and it continues to be available for that start in mid March - still with the $7.50 postal fee. 

 

 

1/18/21

North Dakota, Crosby.  1979 Diamond Jubilee Dollar.  Nickel-silver version.  Start $2.95 ($4.95 BIN) plus $8.00 shipping.  Listed until February 22 when the listing was ended unsold.

 

 

1/18/21

Oregon, Milton-Freewater.  1972 Centennial Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $9.99 plus $1.00 opening bid. 

 

 

1/18/21

Wisconsin, Oconto.  1969 Tricentennial Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $5.00 plus $1.00 starting bid.

 

 

1/19/21

Illinois, Jerseyville.  1964 “Quadcentennial” 125th Anniversary Half Dollar.  About uncirculated but with very distracting corrosion patches on both sides.  Start $2.25 plus $1.50.  There were 5 bids by just two bidders and it sold for $7.50.  Ugly, but quite hard to find!

 

 

1/20/21

Iowa, Orange City.  1970 Centennial Half Dollar, First Issue on reverse.  Mintage 500.  Catalog value $12.50.  I was the only interested bidder at the $7.95 with FREE shipping start.  Cheap!

 

 

1/21/21

Oregon, Newport.  1976 Newport Dollars, numbered 6601.  Start $4.49 (BIN $8.25) plus $1.25 postage.  After the listing that ended March 3, the item was made a BIN item for $7.85.  There is no ending date for the current listing.  A very poor image probably has contributed the the lack of interest in this item - and that the seller describes the condition as “Fair”, while it is probably About Uncirculated or better.

  

 

1/21/21

South Dakota.  1971 South Dakota Souvenir Dollar.  Described by the seller as Proof.  Serial number 004551.  Start $100.00 plus $4.45 shipping.  Nobody wanted to pay a hundred bucks for this token, so the seller ended his listing after just one week.

 

 

1/22/21

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  2003-2004 London Bridge Rotary Club Annual  Medal.  This year did not include a denomination, but will be included in the listings for continuity of the series..  Standard antiqued brass edition.  Start $7.99 plus $3.00 shipping.  The next week the start was reduced to $4.00, and then on February 21 to just 99¢.  After the March 14 listing was raised to $1.99.  The current listing ends on March 24.

 

 

1/22/21

California.  1979 California Dollar, still in original Papel Mint display card.  Start 99¢ with FREE shipping.  Sold for $1.37 after 4 bids by 2 bidders. 

 

 

1/23/22

Alaska, Nenana Valley.  1972 Souvenir Dollar.  Start $12.99 with FREE shipping.  No bids and two days into its second listing the lot was ended, unsold, by the seller.

 

 

 

1/23/21

California, Los Angeles.  1981 Bicentennial Dollar, Year-Round Sports Paradise type.  Sold to a single bidder for the $2.95 plus $3.25 starting bid. 

 

 

1/23/21

Oregon, Klamath Falls.  1959 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar.  Start 69¢ plus 69¢ more for shipping.  Sold to the second bidder for $1.80.

 

 

1/23/21

Wyoming, Douglas.  1962 Diamond Jubilee Days “Jackalope Buck 50¢”.  XF/AU with a big carbon spot above the jackalope.  Larger trees, heavier whiskers variety.  Sold to a single bidder who placed a second, unnecessary and unused bid, for the $4.99 plus $4.50 start.

 

 

1/24/21

Kansas.  1961 Official Centennial Coin with no issuing location inscribed.  About Uncirculated.  Start $9.95 plus $4.45 shipping.  No bids.  Not relisted.

 

 

1/24/21

Michigan, Lake Linden.  1966 Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $8.95 with FREE shipping.  No bids and when relisted it had a Make Offer option which someone took advantage of on the very first day.  Ebay does not disclose what items sold for when the seller accepts a bidder’s offer.  The same seller now (two months later) is offering another one for $12.95 with FREE shipping, again with a Best Offer provision.

 

 

1/24/21

New York, New York City.  1909 Hudson-Fulton Festival 1 Daalder, full size, struck in alumnium.  Described by the seller as Gem BU+.  Quite a nice specimen, fully uncirculated and the finest I have seen on Ebay in some time.  The start was $345.00 plus $5.00 shipping. The starting bid was reduced to $310.50 for its second listing, and then to $279.45 for its third go-round.  Nobody bid and the item was ended unsold.  Too bad - it was a pretty one, nicer than the one in my collection.

 

 

1/25/21

Maine, Cumberland County.  1960 200th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Start $1.00 plus $1.10 postage.  The second bidder won it for $1.76.

 

 

1/25/21

Oregon, Albany.  1959 Oregon Centennial / Timber Carnival Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $5.00 plus $2.50 starting bid.

 

 

1/25/21

Oregon, Baker.  1974 Centennial Dollar.  Start $9.99 plus $1.00 shipping.  No bids and still available two months later, now as a BIN item, for the same cost.

 

 

1/26/21

Maine, Old Town.  1965 125th Anniversary Commemorative Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $8.00 with FREE shipping opening bid.

 

 

1/26/21

South Dakota.  1971 South Dakota Souvenir Dollar.  Edge not described - I will assume it is the standard lettered and numbered edge variety.  Sold to a single bidder for the $7.95 plus $1.00 opening bid.

 

 

1/27/21

Antarctica, McMurdo.  1987 International Geophysical Year Antarctica $10.  Silver.  Start $17.50 plus $3.87.  Listed until February 11 when a single bidder won it for the opening price.  A good deal! 

 

 

1/27/21

Arizona, Casa Grande.  1979/80 Centennial Dollar.  Start $3.92 plus $3.15 for postage.  After 6 bids by 3 bidders it sold for $5.58.

 

 

1/27/21

Michigan, Harrison.  1966 Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar.  There was some minor spotting on the reverse, but still I couldn't resist this one and won it as the only bidder for the $6.55 with FREE shipping start.

 

 

1/27/21

North Dakota, Rugby.  Pierce County Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar.  Start $5.00 plus $1.50 shipping.  When no one bid the seller made it a BIN item for $6.00 plus $1.50.  It stayed at this cost until March 18 when the listing was ended unsold.

 

 

1/27/21

Pennsylvania, Elwood City.  1967 75th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $5.00, but probably scarcer than I thought since this is the first appearance of this token on these lists.  The start was $5.00 plus $1.50 and it sold to the second bidder for $9.38.

 

 

1/28/21

Arizona, Bullhead City.  1977 Bullhead Buck.  Sold to a single bidder for the $5.44 plus $3.09 starting bid.

 

 

1/28/21

Arizona, Casa Grande Ruins.  Undated (c. 1900) 50¢ Aluminum Token.  Very  Fine / Extremely Fine - scratches on obverse. No merchant noted.  Perhaps good anywhere in the monument, - or perhaps there was just one merchant in the area!

 

 

1/28/21

Illinois, Downers Grove.  1966 / Graphic Gold.  Extremely Fine.  Start $1.00 plus postage.  After 4 bids by 3 bidders it sold for $2.00.

 

 

1/28/21

Illinois, Shawneetown.  1960 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  Nice About Uncirculated.  Sold to a single bidder for the $4.99 plus $2.99 starting bid.

 

 

1/28/21

Indiana, Salem.  1989 175th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Extremely Fine.  Start $5.99 plus $1.99.  On February 18 the start was reduced to $3.98 with the same shipping charge, then on the 25th to $2.97, and then on the 4th of March to just $1.96.  It was dropped further to $1.55 on March 11, and then to a mere 94¢ for the listing ending on March 18.  That really worked because 2 bidders spotted it, placed 4 bids and it sold for $8.01 - more than what it could have been had for on the first week!

 

 

1/28/21

Kansas.  1961 Official Centennial Coin for Finney County.  A pair of these, along with one of the 1954 Kansas Official Centennial Coins without an issuing location, and a non-MTC 1979 Centennial medal from Garden City, Kansas.  The lot had a start of $9.99 plus $3.00, and I was the only bidder.  The first time I have listed the Finney County pieces, which I thought had only an average scarcity rating, in relation tothe other Official Centennial Coins - but maybe not - it took a while to track one of these down..  

 

 

1/28/21

Kansas, Wyandot.  1959 Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $2.25 plus $1.50.  After two bids it sold for $5.86.

 

 

 

1/28/21

Massachusetts, Dennis - Harwich.  1975 Dollar in Silver.  Mintage 200.  Catalog value $25.00.  Not noted by the seller as being struck in silver.  I was the only bidder and won it for the opening bid of $2.35 plus $3.15.  A bargain, of course, but on re-examination, I wonder if this can be classified as a Municipal Token.  There is a denomination, but what does it commemorate?  I probably will have to take it. and its companion golden brass examples, out of the next edition unless I discover that it was in general use in the area, and not just a private issue of the local Lion’s Club.

 

 

1/28/21

1/29/21

Hawaii.  1883-1983 Centennial Dala “Die Set-Up Test Strike” (that is the way it is described by the seller) - the ANACS slab simply says “Test Strike”.  Overgraded (in my opinion, since grading is a subjective matter), but a “65” designation implies a gem grade, virtually free of problems…but this example had (as most do) MANY scuffs and abrasions, which you would not expect on a “gem".  Start $65.00 plus $4.15 shipping.  On February 14 the start was dropped to $59.95, and then the following week to $45.00, when it finally received a single bid.

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  Cased set of the standard issues of the London Bridge Dollars for 1996/97, 2001/02 and 2002/03.  The hinged case is nice, but It is marked National Collector’s Mint, and I don’t believe the coins are original to the case.  All three are Uncirculated and still sealed in their round vinyl pouches.  The start was $24.95 plus $3.65 shipping.  For the listing ending March 2, the start was reduced a bit to $22.50, but the postage was raised to $4.65.
