7/7/19

Illinois, Alpha.  1972 Centennial Souvenir Coin.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $5.00.  This is the first of these I have seen on Ebay since starting this listing in 2012, so it is probably a bit scarcer than I had thought, and I’ll be raising the catalog value up to $6.50.  Still, I was the only one interested, and won it for the 99¢ plus $3.00 starting bid.

 

 

7/7/19

South Dakota, Sioux Falls.  1960-1961 Dakota Territory Centennial Half Dollars.  A pair of nice uncirculated pieces, both the “AT” variety.  Sold to a single bidder for the 99¢ plus $3.66 opening bid.

 

 

7/8/19

Delaware, Seaford.  1965 Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $1.99 plus $3.00 shipping.  When it did not get a bid, the seller made it a BIN item at the same price and was listed until August 1, when the seller ended the listing “because there was an error in the listing”.

Georgia, Fitzgerald.  1965 Civil War Centennial Dollar in Antiqued Brass.  The number on the edge - if there was one - not noted.  Start 99¢ plus $3.50 postage.  After 14 Bid by 4 bidders it sold for $20.50.

Arizona, Tucson.  1933 Wolfville Western Days Dollar.  Lightly circulated XF/AU - which is typical - with no luster.  Also collected by So-Called Dollar collectors as HK-689.  Start $9.99 plus $3.20 shipping.  It sold for $13.36 after 3 bids by 3 different bidders. 

 

 

7/10/19

California, Paradise-Magalia.  1963 Gold Nugget Celebration Half Dollar.  From the town that burned down last fall (and sent my Mother-in-law to live with us!).  I was the only bidder for this Extremely Fine/Almost Uncirculated example at the 99¢ plus $3.99 postage fee.

 

 

7/10/19

Idaho, Ketchum.  1960 Wagon Days Dollar.  XF/AU.  A scarce token that I now wish I had bid on, despite the condition and high postage fee.  And since I had won the preceding Paradise California token from the same seller, I would have saved on the postage fees! Start 99¢ plus $3.99 shipping.  It lasted until the week ending September 4, then was spotted by two bidders and it sold for $1.53.  Cheap!

 

 

7/10/19

Pennsylvania, Littlestown.  1965 Bicentennial Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $2.00 plus $1.50 opening bid.  

 

 

7/11/19

Georgia, Tucker.  1984 Souvenir Olympic Dollar of R. W. Colbert.  Orange plastic.  Mintage 200.  Catalog value $4.50.  I was the only bidder at the 99¢ plus $1.00 start.  Colbert issued a couple other personal tokens that qualify as MTCs as well.

 

 

7/11/19

Hawaii, Maui.  1996 Maui Trade Dollar.  The usual copper nickel version.  Graded by the seller as About Uncirculated.  I agree.  Start 99¢ plus $10.00 shipping from Slovenia.  After 8 bids from 6 bidders it sold for $5.65.  Wow!  The seller noted that no matter how many coins you won, the total shipping would still be just $10.00 - in fact, if you won more than $300.00, the shipping would be FREE.

 

 

7/12/19

Virginia, Franklin County.  Undated Franklin County Money Nickel.  Extremely Fine.  Start $5.00 plus $1.00.  There were no bids and it remains available nearly two months later for the same price - although now as a BIN item.

 

 

7/14/19

Alaska, Seward.  1967 Quarter, private issue for Penny’s Cafe.  The same one from back in April.  Still the same price, ($9.95 with FREE shipping),and still too high.  Apparently other collectors thought so too, because it was listed until August 30 with no bids before the seller gave up and ended the listing again.

 

 

7/15/19

Hawaii, Maui.  1959/60 Statehood Year Dollar.  XF/AU.  Standard spelling of MAUI. Start 99¢ plus $2.95. It sold to the second bidder for $1.80.

 

 

7/15/19

Kansas, Ellsworth.  1967 Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $7.58 plus 95¢ shipping. No bids the first time, then resisted for another 10 day listing.  The seller promoted his listing as being a So-Called Dollar, and said it was from Minnesota instead of Kansas, but there were still no bids, and the token was ended unsold after a second week on Ebay.

 

 

7/15/19

Montana, Red Lodge.  1935 Red Lodge Rodeo Half Dollar.  About Uncirculated, with some annoying edge nicks.  Sold to a single bidder for the $19.00 plus $3.00 start.

 

 

7/15/19

Montana, Red Lodge.  1972 Yellowstone Park Centennial Dollar.  Start $19.00 plus $3.00 shipping.  It came back the next week for $17.00, then $11.00, $9.00, $7.00, $5.00, and finally $4.00. The postage then dropped to $1.00, but still it remains available two months after its original listing for the $4.00 plus $1.00 start.

 

 

7/15/19

Oregon, Baker County.  2000 Baker County New Millennium Two Bucks.  About Uncirculated.  Start $4.95 plus $2.95 shipping.  There were no bids, so the seller lowered his price a bit - to $4.45 - and made it a BIN item.  The listing was terminated on August 27 “because the item is no longer available”.

 

 

7/15/19

Oregon, Myrtle Point.  1962 Centennial Half Dollar.  Extremely Fine / Almost Uncirculated.  Start $4.95 plus $2.95 shipping.  It made it to August 15, finally as a BIN item at the same cost, before being ended unsold.

 

 

7/16/19

Michigan, Fowlerville.  1961 125th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Price $9.95 BIN, plus $3.00 shipping.  The item was ended “because the item is no longer available”, but it is, and remains on Ebay for the same price two months later.

 

 

7/16/19

Michigan, Onaway.  1949 50th Anniversary Quarter.  Uncirculated, but weakly struck in the center - as all are.  By the same seller that sold another of these late last month.  A single bidder won it for the $7.99 plus 99¢ start.

 

 

7/16/19

North Dakota, Enderlin.  1966 Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar.  The seller said it was from South Dakota, but I guess everybody knew what he meant.  Start $5.99 with FREE shipping.  No bids.  It was made a BIN item at the same price and remains available nearly two months later.

 

 

7/17/19

Florida, St. Petersburg.  1964 Funtime Celebration Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the reasonable $2.99 with FREE shipping start.

 

 

7/18/19

7/18/19

Nebraska, Elgin.  1964 Diamond Jubilee Dollar.  Start $15.00.  Postage $3.50 more. There was one bid and the item sold for the opening price.

 

 

7/19/19

Ohio, Hamilton.  1966 175th Anniversary Dollar struck in Silver and numbered 39 on the obverse.  The seller did not note the coins composition or the fact that it was numbered in his description.  The start was $9.99 and postage was $3.95.  Since the seller didn’t note It was silver, I thought I could win this scarce token cheaply so I placed a bid for $38.88 and felt confident I would win it for close to the opening bid.  Well, only one other person bid and he apparently had the same idea and placed a single bid of $38.50.  So I won it for my bid of $38.88.  OK, still a good deal.  But before the token arrived the seller was offering the same token, number 39, again!  Hmmm.  So I bid again, this time for a something over over $60.00 because the underbidder now knew somebody else wanted these tokens too.  Once again the same bidder was the only one other than me who bid (you could tell by comparing the feedback score), and this time he bid $41.00, so I won it for $42.00.  I was hoping the seller had a couple of these and was just using the old photographs to illustrate the new coin.  However, when the first token came, it was the standard nickel-silver version and did not have the number stamped on the front.  I contacted the seller, who apologized and said he had bought three of the coins and did not notice the difference.  This second time he sent the numbered silver one and told me to return the original one, which I did - however I’m still waiting for my refund for the original one!  He went on to offer the third item, another unnumbered nickel-silver one, for the same price as the others but he replaced the photo of the numbered one with the proper image of an un-numbered one.  That one remains available for the same start in the middle of September. ****After typing this note up, I sent a refund request to the seller and he immediately sent it.

 

 

7/20/19

Oregon, Forest Grove.  1949 Pacific University Centennial Half Dollar Centennial Coin, wood.  Nice condition, but a bit stained - perhaps from getting wet in all that Oregon rain.  Start $30.00 with FREE shipping.  For the week ending August 3 the start was lowered all the way to $9.99, still with FREE shipping.  It lasted at that start until August 28 when the listing was ended “because the item is no longer available”.

 

 

7/20/19

South Dakota, Sioux Falls.  1960/61 Territorial Centennial Half Dollar.  Start 99¢.  Postage $3.00.  This piece attracted 6 bids from 2 bidders and sold for $2.75.  Another seller offered one of these ending on July 25 - it was priced at $6.99 plus 95¢, and sold to a single bidder.  Still another was offered by someone for a sale ending July 27.  This one had a 99¢ plus $3.00 start, attracted 4 bids from 3 bidders, and sold for $4.25. The seller called this a “Rare Piece” in the title, but it actually is one of the most abundant tokens in the entire MTC field. However it does have an especially attractive design, and apparently appeals to the new bunch of MTC collectors who have been building their collections by watching Ebay.

 

 

7/23/19

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1975 Restrike using the obverse die of the second 1972 re-issue Dollar (“L” does not touch mountain), along with the standard 1975 reverse.  Mintage Unknown, but I think it is 100 pieces.  Catalog value $35.00.  No one else spotted this scarce variety, so I won it for the $9.95 with FREE shipping start.

 

 

7/23/19

South Dakota, Mobridge.  2006 Centennial $3.00.  Start $16.99 ($25.99 BIN) with FREE shipping.  There was no bid, and the item remains available nearly 2 months later as a Buy It Now item for $16.99, still with FREE shipping.

 

 

7/23/19

Washington, Seattle.  1962 Century 21 Exposition Dollar.  Group of 3 , all in slabs and graded MS-64 by NGC.  Start $36.99 plus $5.00 shipping.  There were no bids and the lot was not relisted - The same seller had a second lot of 3 different MS-64’s ending today, priced the same, and they did not receive a bid either. Not relisted.

 

 

7/24/19

Colorado, Denver.  1978 Bronco Buck Denver Broncos Bronco Buck Sports Schedule Token. Golden Aluminum.  Sold to a single bidder for the opening price of 99¢ plus $3.95 shipping.  Encouraged by his success, the seller listed another for $5.00 plus $3.95.  That one remains available for the same price nearly two months down the line.

7/25/19

Kansas, Arkansas City.  1961 Kansas Centennial Half Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  The start of $16.50 plus $3.66 shipping was met by a single bidder - the same one who won the following Arkansas City from 10 years later.  At least he saved on the postage!

7/25/19

Minnesota, Bemidgi.  2005 61st Annual water Carnival $3.00.  Unknown mintage.  Not cataloged.  I do not currently catalog similar tokens from local non-anniversary events, but I bought this one for my “wannabe” box.  I was the only bidder at the 99¢ plus 50¢ opening bid.

 

 

7/26/19

New York, New York.  1909 Hudson Fulton Celebration Daalder, small size, in gold.  HK-371. Graded MS-64 by NGC, and encapsulated in one of their “slabs”.  Start $1,175.00 plus $3.45 shipping.  No bids, and still available at the same start nearly two months later.

 

 

7/26/19

North Dakota, Rolla.  1963 75th Anniversary Half Dollar.  A unique design for a MTC with a ruby watch jewel embedded in the center of the token.  The start was $1.99 plus $1.50 shipping.  After 4 bids by 3 bidders it sold for $4.13.  Cheap for a choice one like this!

Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.  1926 Treasure Island Doubloon, the most common two-sided variety.  Extremely Fine with a bit of the original mint color remaining.  Start $22.00 plus 70¢ for shipping.  No bids, so the start was reduced to $20.00 - still no bids.  The following week the seller tried $18.00, and that did it - the token sold to a single bidder.

Virginia, Charlottesville.  1962 200th Anniversary Half Dollar, Monticello version.  Sold to a single bidder for the opening bid of $3.00 with FREE shipping.

 

 

7/26/19

Washington, Whidbey Island. 1936 Coupeville Indian Days Half Dollar. Extremely Fine, maybe About Uncirculated, but with some minor edge nicks.  Advertised simply as “So Called dollars Hk”.  I guess that was enough because it sold to a single bidder at the opening price of $45.00 plus $3.45 shipping.

 

 

7/27/19

New York, New York.  1909 (1960’s) Henry Hudson Ship Dollar muled with the fantasy Sommers Islands hog die on the reverse.  This one struck in Silver, slabbed and graded MS-67 by NGC.  Start $145.00 with FREE shipping.  No one bid and the listing was ended after a single week.

 

 

7/28/19

Alaska, Anchorage.  1967 Plastic Centennial Dollars, Set of “4” Colors.  This one had the standard red, white and blue issues, plus a yellow one.  The seller apparently did not notice that the yellow one was from Juneau.  The lot of four did sell, anyway, to a single bidder for the opening price of $7.99 plus $3.49 postage.

 

 

7/28/19

Alaska, Fairbanks.  1959 Statehood Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for its $1.99 plus $2.99 start.

7/28/19

USA/USSR 1983 Disarmament Dollar/Ruble. Struck in “missile metal”.  About Uncirculated.  Start $10.00 plus $4.50 shipping. Listed at this start until August 25 when the seller ended his listing unsold.  Not listed yet, but who knows - it has a denomination (or two) and commemorates an important event.  We will see.  I have had one in my “wannabe” collection for a long time.

 

 

7/29/19

Kansas, Russell.  1971 Centennial Dollar.  Start 99¢ plus $3.50 shipping.  After a bidding war between just two bidders, the eighth bid took it for $3.95.

 

 

7/29/19

Washington, Coulee Dam.  Undated Dam Quarter.  Actually a paper sticker on a granite disc sliced from a drill core.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $5.00 - but going up to $7.50 since this is the first I have come across on ebay in the seven years I have been monitoring the auctions.  It’s got to be scarcer than I had thought.  Anyhow, this one started at 99¢, attracted 6 bids from 5 bidders, and sold for $13.05.

 

 

7/29/19

Wyoming, Cody.  Undated Days of '49 / Cody Stampede Ten Cents In Fun.  Extremely fine, with moderate scratches on one side.  Start $1.99 plus $3.00 shipping.  There were 6 bids from 5 bidders and it sold for $5.50.

7/30/19

Hawaii.  Undated Aloha Dollar with golden finish.  Looks like the much scarcer 32mm version, but I can’t be sure.  XF/AU condition, and in a looped bezel to be worn on a necklace or keychain.  Start $2.99 plus $3.78 shipping.  For the sale ending August 27, the seller lowered the start to just 99¢.  It didn’t sell the first week, but the second week it was snapped up by a single bidder.

 

 

7/30/19

Michigan, Sault Ste. Marie.  1968 Tri Centennial Half Dollar, BY variety.  Holed at top, Extremely Fine.  Not previously listed as a holed piece.  When I list it, the catalog value will be the same as the much more common unholed variety, currently $3.00 in Uncirculated condition.  Start $1.95.  Postage $1.00.  Listed until September 15 before the seller gave up and cancelled his listing.
