7/1/17

Wisconsin, Kewaunee.  1913 Homecoming Dime. A novelty item inscribed THIS CHECK / AND A DIME / GOOD FOR / ¢ 10 ¢ / IN TRADE  / ANYWHERE.  This one was new to me, and it seemed a good possibility for inclusion in the catalog, so I bid and won.  The start was $15.00 plus $2.50 shipping, and it sold for $30.00 after 3 bids by 2 bidders.

7/2/17

Pennsylvania, Chambersburg.  1962 Civil War Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 10,000.  Catalog value $4.00.  This was a nice uncirculated one, but it was just priced too high - $12.00 plus $2.60.  Not surprisingly there were no bids at this level, but the seller continued to offer it at the same price, but now as a BIN item, until August 16, when the listing was ended unsold.

 

 

7/4/17

Idaho, Weiser.  1963 Territorial Centennial and National Fiddlers Convention Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.00.  The start was $3.99 and the postage $2.89 more, but there were no bids.  It was relisted at that same price for two weeks without a sale, so the seller reduced the start to 99¢ plus $2.89, and it sold to a single bidder on July 24.

 

 

7/4/17

Minnesota.  1958 Centennial Half dollar obverse struck in aluminum - also known to So-Called Dollar collectors as HK-518.  An attractive, above average Uncirculated specimen but with too many bag marks and surface abrasions to call it choice.  This one had a $1.00 plus $2.00 shipping start, attracted 10 bids from 7 bidders, and sold for $208.50.  Wow!

 

 

7/4/17

New York, New York City.  1986 Statue of Liberty Birthday Dollar - One of 6 varieties, this one showing the base of the statue being constructed.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $3.50.  Priced at a starting bid of $2.99, but with a postage charge of $3.99, this piece failed to attract a bid even after the start was reduced to $1.99 for the week ending August 9.  The lot was then ended unsold.

 

 

7/5/17

Hawaii 1992 Midway Dala in Silver.  Unknown mintage. Catalog value $17.50.  Offered starting at $40.00 with FREE shipping.  Failing to find a bid, it was made a BIN item at the same price. The listing for this 1 Ounce Silver piece was soon ended  “because the item is no longer available”.  I think that usually happens when the seller sells the item outside of Ebay.

 

 

7/5/17

Kansas, Coffeyville.  1969 Centennial Dollar.  Mintage 13,500.  Catalog value $3.50.  The start for this piece was 99¢, but the postage fee was $2.90.  No bids this week or the next, but after 3 weeks it caught the eye of a couple bidders and sold for $1.04 after two bids.

 

 

7/5/17

Michigan, Eaton Rapids.  1962 125th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Mintage 5,000.  Catalog value $3.50.  Starting bid was $4.99 with FREE shipping.  No bids.  Not relisted.

 

 

7/5/17

Washington, Walla Walla.  1986 Whitman Centennial $1.50, numbered version (5709).  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $5.00.  The start was $5.55 and postage $2.75 more.  There were no bids and the seller made it a BIN item at the same price.  Offered until September 3, when the listing was ended unsold.

 

 

7/6/17

Arizona, Globe.  Undated Days of ’49 Dime.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $17.50, but going down.  This specimen in XF Condition was dirty and with some slight corrosion.  Despite a $9.99 plus $2.80 start, it received no bids, and was not relisted.

 

 

7/6/17

Arizona, Quartzite.  1975/76 Pow Wow Dollar.  An error muling of the 1976 obverse and the 1975 reverse.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $7.50.  Offered for $3.49 plus $2.95 shipping. There were no bids this week or the following week, so the seller ended his listing unsold.  He called it the 1975 Pow Wow Dollar and did not mention the error.

 

 

7/6/17

California, Los Angeles.  1981 Bicentennial Dollar, City of Opportunity design, struck in Sterling Silver.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $30.00, but that is probably going down.  Produced as silver was spiking to nearly $50 per ounce, these had to be made on thin planchets to keep them from costing too much.  As it was, they priced the half ounce Dollars at $39.00 each, and they were made available only in sets of the 6 designs.  As a result, there was some buyer resistance!  $234.00 was too much for many collectors, and most opted to settle for the 6 coins in nickel silver at face value.  As a result the silver ones somewhat hard to find today.

 

 

7/6/17

Michigan, Cadillac.  1952 Paul Bunyan Days Quarter.  Unknown Mintage.  Catalog value $5.00.  This one in the typical XF/AU condition sold to a single bidder who placed two bids - the second being unnecessary - and won it for the opening price of $5.99 plus $3.00.

 

 

7/6/17

New York, New York City.  “1609” (1993) Henry Hudson Half Moon Dallder.  Issued by the New Netherlands Museum in Albany, but the location is not mentioned on the token, so - for the time being at least - it will be listed with the other Henry Hudson issues in New York City.  Struck by the Dutch Mint in Utrecht from Sterling Silver, which is also not indicated on the coin.  The museum had 20 specimens for sale in 1993, and they have long been sold out.  Not previously listed.  I was the only bidder at the $25.00 with FREE shipping start.  A very pretty token, but I am not sure it should be listed.

 

 

7/6/17

Pennsylvania, Hannover Community.  1963 Bicentennial Half Dollars, Lot of 4, all Uncirculated.  The mintage is unknown and they catalog for $4.50 each.  This group was offered for $21.99 with FREE shipping.  There were no bids as an auction item, so the seller made them a Buy It Now item at the same cost.  The lot is still available, with the current listing ending on September 11.

 

 

7/7/17

Alaska, Fairbanks.  1976 U. S. Bicentennial Dollar - Private issue for the Chena View Hotel.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.50.  The start was just $1.99 plus $1.25 shipping.    It sold to the second bidder at $2.25.

7/8/17

Rhode Island, Providence.  1961 325th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $3.50.  You could have bid on this item, starting at $6.00 or just bought it straight out for $8.00 - either way with a very reasonable $1.00 shipping fee.  No bids, but it continued as an Auction item for $6.00 plus $1.00 until August 25, when the seller ended his listing unsold.

 

 

7/9/17

Iowa, Emmetsburg.  1966 Irish Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $7.50.  The first year of issue for a series that continues uninterrupted today, over 50 years later!  Bidding was to start at $8.00 plus $3.00 shipping, but no one bid.  The token was not relisted.

 

 

7/9/17

Iowa, Emmetsburg.  1967 Irish Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.00.  Offered for $8.00 plus $3.00 shipping.  It sold to a single bidder at the opening price, who no doubt saved on the shipping fees by bidding on several items.

 

 

7/9/17

Oregon, Sweet Home.  1959 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 5,000.  Catalog value $4.00. Offered for $6.75 with FREE shipping for this Uncirculated, but spotty and tarnished where the golden coating is deteriorating.  After a month the price was reduced by 25¢, but that didn’t do the trick, so after another month the seller ended the listing unsold.

 

 

7/13/17

California, Paradise-Magalia.  1962 Gold Nugget Celebration Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $3.00.  The seller wanted this token to start off at $19.99 plus $2.95 shipping, but no one bid for a month, so he reduced the price by $1.00 and made it a BIN item. Then, for the sale ending September 12, it went down another dollar, to $17.99 plus $2.95.  It was immediately relisted at the same price and will be available until October 12

Utah, Salt Lake City.  1976  U. S.

7/15/17

Alaska, Cordova.  Undated Iceworm Festival 8 Bits.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.50.  This XF/AU specimen offered for $4.00 plus $2.50 did not receive a bid and was not relisted.

7/15/17

Iowa, Ames.  1964 Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 5,000.  Catalog value $4.00.  This sale was for a pair of these, and the start was a very reasonable 99¢ plus just 91¢ shipping.  Surprisingly, no one bid!  The following week the start was lowered to 50¢ but the shipping raised to $2.61.  Still no bids, so for the next week the start was lowered to 25¢, and the $2.61 shipping fee retained. Once again, theere were no bids so the seller tried a 15¢ opening, and this time it worked.  With the $2.61 shipping, it still was not as good a deal as it was the first week - but still it was pretty cheap for 2 tokens!

 

 

7/15/17

Iowa, Pella.  Complete set of Dutch Dollars, 1971-2017, 47 golden brass coins.  Sold by the Pella Lions Club, the distributor of these coins, for $300.00.  This uncirculated set was only $200.00 plus $7.95 shipping, but it did not get a single bid this or in the following weeks. For the week ending August 11, the price was lowered to $125.00, and then ended because there were still no bidders.  Had I noticed the price drop, I would have bid - $125.00 would have been a real bargain.  I just sent a note off to the seller to see if they were still available******They were, and I was able to buy the lot at the $125.00 plus postage price!

7/23/17 

Oregon. 1959 Oregon Centennial State Centennial Uniface (Half Dollar).  Two pieces - one with a recent counterstamp.  Brass, with smoke, small hole for the normal uniface piece and a Brass, Smoke, Large hole variety which had been stamped SMALLFOREST / MEDALZINE.COM on the otherwise blank reverse by the seller. The normal version was a nice AU example, the counterstamped one just VF/XF.  I valued the blank reverse varieties for $5.00 in the last edition of my catalog. The start was $19.59 plus $3.25 shipping.  I was surprised that there were just two bidders - I came in at $23.88 and someone else placed a higher bid and won it for the next bid increment, $24.38.  I think that was a nice buy.  I won’t be listing the counterstamped version (or any other pieces altered after the time of use or issue) in my listings.

Pennsylvania, Boyertown.  1966 Centennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.50.  I was the only bidder at the $1.99 plus 99¢ shipping start.  These show up too infrequently for me to pass this low priced one up.

Missouri, Excelsior Springs.  1961 Mintage 10,000.  Catalog value $3.50.  Up for bid starting at $9.95 with FREE shipping. Listed until August 6 with no action, so the seller ended his listing unsold.  Sorry Sellers - $10.00 is just too much for most MTCs - especially common ones like this.

Indiana, Indianapolis.  1971 Lucky Half Dollar Elongated Coin. Rolled on a 1964 Silver Kennedy Half Dollar. Not listable as a MTC, but very Interesting.  The main thing that keeps it from being listed is the denomination “Lucky Half Dollar”. As it stands now “Lucky Coins” of any sort are not listable.  I’ve picked up a couple of these over the years just in case the future MTC collectors decide that Lucky Coins can be listed - They currently reside in my wannabe box.  This specimen started off at $29.00 with FREE shipping. There were 7 bids by just 2 bidders and it sold for $56.70.
