Florida, Sebring (Highlands County).  1971 Golden Jubilee Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.00.  Opening bid was $9.99 plus $1.95 shipping.  No bids, and the item was not relisted. 

 

 

6/1/14

Illinois, Chicago.  1893 Columbian Exposition Irish Village $1,000.  Very choice.  Started at $5.00 and sold for $161.83 after 16 bids.  Remarkable.  Of interest to collectors of Columbian Exposition memorabilia as well as MTC collectors.

 

 

6/1/14

Iowa, Emmetsburg.  1972 Irish Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.50.  Offered for $4.99 plus an additional $1.00 for shipping.  No bids.  Offered weekly since then, still without bids.  Still available for the same opening bid as of August 4.

 

 

6/1/14 

Iowa, Emmetsburg.  1981 Irish Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $3.50.  Up for bid at a $4.99 start plus a reasonable additional dollar for shipping.  No bids.  Like the previous item, still available at the same start price on August 4.

 

 

6/1/14

Kansas.  1961 Official Centennial Coin for Coffeyville.  The city and other issues are generally scarcer than the majority of the County issues in this series, and Coffeyville is no exception.  Start was $1.99 plus $2.00 for shipping.  Three bids sent the sale price up to $9.38.  That was me there in second place trying to add this scarce piece to my duplicates for $8.88.

 

 

6/1/14

Michigan, Brighton.  1967 Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 5,000.  Catalog value $3.50.  This sale was for a nice example with a start of $3.99 plus $1.95 shipping.  No bid.  Not relisted.

 

 

6/1/14

Michigan, Petersburgh.  1969 Centennial Half Dollar, goldene.  Mintage 4,000.  Catalog value $3.50.  Start was to be $3.99 plus $1.95 shipping, but no one bid.  Not relisted.    

 

 

6/1/14

Ohio, Bryan.  1940 Centennial Dime.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.50.  Offered for $4.99 with FREE shipping.  The price was dropped to $3.99 the following week, still with no interest, so the seller ended his listing.

 

 

6/2/14

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1989-1990 London Bridge Dollar.  Struck in copper (the regular issue) and offered for a start of $2.00 plus $2.50 shipping.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $3.00.  Available on the London Bridge Rotary Club website for $15.00.  No bids, and relisted every week until July 31 when the seller finally gave up and ended the listing unsold.

 

 

6/2/14

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1998-1999 London Bridge Dollar.  Unknown mintage, and uncataloged in my last edition.  Available on the London Bridge Rotary Club website for $8.00.  This one could have been won for the opening bid of $4.35 plus $2.32 shipping, but no one bid.  Still available at the same price in the seller’s store as of August 17.  

 

 

6/2/14

Massachusetts, Lanesborough.  1965 Bicentennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $3.50.  Offered for a start of $3.50 plus $1.10 shipping, but there were no bids this week and it was relisted until July 20, still without success.   

 

 

6/2/14

Oregon.  1959 Centennial obverse, blank reverse.  One of the rare uniface varieties.  This one in extremely fine condition, struck in nickel-silver, holed, and with smoke from left smokestacks.  The start was just $1.99, there were 12 bids, and it sold for $80.59 plus $2.50 postage.  This is an issue of interest to a large group of collectors because currently the 1959 Centennial pieces are very “hot”, it is a MTC,  and a SCD as well. 

 

 

6/2/14

Washington, Aberdeen.  1933 Old Ironsides Wooden Quarter, uncirculated (which is typical).  I did not list these wooden issues in my previous editions, but they are probably going to be listed in the next.  Offered for a start of 1¢ and, after drawing 15 bids, selling for $25.17 plus $2.50 postage.  Two years ago this was a $5.00 token!

 

 

6/3/14

North Dakota (Bismark).  1961 Dakota Territory Centennial Half Dollar in goldene.  Shield Reverse.  Mintage 50,000.  Catalog value $2.00.  Offered at a start of $2.00 plus an additional $2.00 shipping.  No bids.  Listed one more week, still with no bids.

 

 

6/4/14

Michigan, Imlay City.  1970 Centennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.00.  Opening bid was $1.99 and postage $2.35.  No bids this week, or the next four.  The seller then lowered the opening bid to $1.49 still plus that $2.35 shipping.  After 4 more weeks the opening was lowered to 99¢ and it did not sell before the seller ended the listing on July 11.

 

 

6/5/14

Kentucky, Harrodsburg.  1961 187th Birthday Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.00.  Offered for $8.00 with FREE shipping, but there were no bids.  Listed two more weeks at this price and then lowered to a $5.00 start, but now with a $2.32 postage charge.  I had been watching it for a while and on July 14 I finally won it for the opening bid.  Someday it will be a good trader.

 

 

6/5/14

Kentucky, Monroe County (Tomkinsville).  1970 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $8.50.  Starting price was $8.00 with FREE shipping.  There were two bids and it sold for $10.50.

 

 

6/5/14

North Dakota, Bismarck.  1961 Dakota Territory Centennial Half Dollar.  July 4th redemption date, struck in nickel-silver.  Mintage 1,000 in this metal.  Catalog value $5.00.  Offered for 55¢ plus just 90¢ shipping.  Four bids pushed the sale price to $3.25.

 

 

6/6/14

Hawaii.  1994 Princess Kaiulani Princess Dala in Silver, numbered (343) on reverse.  Bidding was to open at $200.00 plus $6.00 shipping, but that didn’t work, so the seller offered it for the same price but with FREE shipping for the next four weeks.  Then the price was dropped to $160.00 plus $3.40, then down to $150 with the same shipping fee.  It remains available at that opening bid as I type this on August 10.

 

 

6/7/14

Idaho, Caldwell.  1976 U. S. Bicentennial Half Dollar.  A private issue for an Elk’s Convention.  Blue plastic.  Currently listed for $3.50, but I may delete it in the next edition.  Offered for $1.75 plus $1.30 shipping.  no bids this week or in the next two, so the seller raised his starting bid to $1.99, still plus that $1.30, until August 2.  Since that time it has been available at the same price, but you can just Buy It Now and not worry about the competition.

 

 

6/7/14

Michigan, Harrison.  1966 Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $10.00.  Up for bid starting at $1.99 plus $3.25 shipping.  After just 3 bids it sold for $11.78.  

 

 

6/8/14

Florida, Key West.  1972 150th Anniversary Conch Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.50.  Offered (incorrectly) as a Conch Republic issue for a start of $9.99 plus $3.50 shipping.  There were 13 bids and it sold for $43.88.

 

 

6/8/14

Hawaii, Honolulu.  1990 Honolulu Dala in copper.  Unlisted in my last edition, and quite scarce.  Start was $5.95 plus $1.98 shipping.  Six bids by five bidders pushed the price to $27.45.  

 

 

6/8/14

Hawaii.  King Kalakaua “1883” 1984 Hawaiian Mint Visit Dala, bronze.  Uncertain mintage.  Catalog value $4.00.  Sold to a single bidder at the $7.95 plus $1.98 opening bid. 

 

 

6/8/14

Hawaii.  1984 Queen Lilioukalani Admission Day Dala in Silver.  Mintage 10,000.  Catalog value $17.50 (remember that the last edition of my catalog came  back when silver was well under $10.00 per ounce).  Up for bid at a start of $35.00 plus $5.70 shipping.  There were no bids and the item was not relisted.

 

 

6/8/14

Hawaii.  1994 Princess Kaiulani Princess Dala in Silver, numbered (396) on reverse.  Bidding opened at 99¢ with FREE shipping.  A moderately common token, which I would value at about $40.00 today.  With the give-away start price, this one attracted a lot of action, eventually selling for a respectable $56.00 after 19 bids.  This is the way to sell (and determine the value of) something - not like the same variety described on June 6 which was priced way too high and is still available.

 

 

6/8/14

Hawaii, Honolulu.  1990 Royal Hawaiian Mint Trade Dala in copper.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $3.00.  Start was $5.95 plus $1.98 shipping.  It sold for $23.72 after 3 bids.

 

 

6/8/14

Illinois, Red Bud.  1967 Centennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.50.  This one started at $4.99 plus $1.95 shipping.  No bids.  Not relisted.

 

 

6/8/14

Iowa, Emmetsburg.  1972 Irish Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.50.  Offered for a start of $4.99 plus $1.00 shipping.  No bids.  Relisted every week since then and still available on August 10.

 

 

6/8/14

Iowa, Emmetsburg.  1975 Irish Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.00.  Offered for a start of $4.99 plus $1.00 shipping.  No bids.  Despite being relisted every week since then it is still available for the same opening bid on August 10.  

  

 

 

6/8/14

Iowa, Emmetsburg.  1981 Irish Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $3.50.  Offered for a start of $4.99 plus $1.00 shipping.  No bids.  Relisted every week since then.  Still available as of August 10.  

 

 

 

6/8/14

Kansas.  1961 Centennial Coin from Allen County.  An easy-to-find county.  Offered for $3.00 with FREE shipping.  No bids.  Not relisted.

 

 

6/8/14

Oregon, Milton-Freewater.  1972 Centennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.50.  Start was $4.00 ($11.00 BIN) plus $1.95 shipping.  No bids.  Not relisted.

 

 

6/8/14

Washington, Kitsap County.  1965 County Fair Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog $4.50.  Opening bid was $3.99 plus $1.95 shipping.  Sold to a single bidder for the opening bid.

 

 

6/8/14

Washington, Olympia.  1933 Old Ironsides wooden Oyster Money.  I did not list these in previous editions, but this and similar Depression Era wooden commemorative tokens will be added in the next edition.  This one started at 1¢ plus $2.50 shipping, and after 16 bids ended up at a very respectable $108.21! 

 

 

6/8/14

West Virginia, Logan County.  1963 State Centennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.00.  Offered for $3.99 ($11.00 Buy It Now) plus $1.95 shipping.  No bids and not relisted.

 

 

6/9/14

Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.  1926 U.S. Sesquicentennial Treasure Island Doubloon.  Not listed in previous editions, but some feel it should be included.  I suppose so, it is a commemorative and it has a denomination, sort of…  If I do list it it will be included at about $7.50.  This one offered for $9.95 plus $1.89 shipping.  Sold at that price to a single bidder.

 

 

6/10/14

Hawaii, Maui.  1999 Maui Dollar in SILVER.  Mintage reported as 2,000 - actually fewer were issued.  Catalog value from back in the day of under $10.00 silver - $20.00.  This one up for bid at a start of $88.00 plus $7.00 shipping, which (in my opinion) is just too much…both for the opening bid and the postage.  There were no bids at this level and after a couple months, on August 4, the opening bid has been reduced to $68.00.  As of August 10, there are still no bids. 

 

 

6/11/14

Hawaii.  King Kamehameha 1986 Dala in bronze.  Appears oxidized brass, but has been polished and toned - green stuff between the letters.  An scarce issue, and one I did not have.  Cuhaj in Unusual World Coins reports 50 were struck in bronze.  This one had too many condition problems for me, so I did not bid.  It started at $4.99 plus $2.75 shipping and ended at $13.79 after 5 bids. 

 

 

6/11/14

Iowa, Emmetsburg.  1975 Irish Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.00.  The seller had the start set for $5.99 plus$3.85 shipping, but that amount was not met.  Still being offered with the same start price as of August 10.

 

 

6/11/14

South Dakota, Sioux Falls.  1961 Dakota Territory Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage at least 300,000 - one of the two or three most abundant MTCs.  Catalog value $2.50.  The seller offered this for a start of $47.50 with FREE shipping ($75.00 Buy It Now).  No bids.  Offered every week since at the same price (it is now August 10), still with no response.  Somewhere along the line, a long time ago, I heard a story that went something like…One way doctors can determine that someone is crazy is when the patient does the same thing the same way over and over again, and still expects the result to come out differently…I don’t know, just thinking. 

 

 

6/11/14

Wyoming, Cheyenne.  1961 Frontier Days Frontier Buck.  Slightly used - this issue seldom comes in fully uncirculated condition.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.50.  This one started off at $6.00 with FREE shipping.  No bids this week, but it sold to a single bidder at the opening price when offered the following week.

 

 

6/12/14

Mississippi, Booneville.  1961 Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 2,500.  Catalog value $6.50.  This piece started at $9.99 plus $1.99 shipping.  There were 4 bids and it sold for $11.00.    

 

 

 

6/12/14

New Jersey, Smithville.  Undated Dollar, holed.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $10.00 if unholed.  I did not list the holed ones last time, but the holed ones I have seen look very uniform, so perhaps they were officially cancelled or perhaps used in keychains or other souvenirs.  This one was offered for $6.00 plus $3.00 shipping, but there were no bids.  Not relisted.  

 

 

6/12/14

Ohio, Ashland.  1965 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 5,000 minimum - perhaps more ordered later.  Catalog value $3.00.  This choice condition piece was offered for $5.95 plus 95¢ shipping.  No bids were received.  The seller offered it, again unsuccessfully, for one more week before ending his listing.

 

 

6/13/14

New York, Friendship.  1965 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $7.50.  Opening bid was $6.95 and shipping $1.99 more.  I was the only bidder for this scarce coin - that pleases me, but sometimes I wonder where the other bidders are.  Right now I am able to snap up most of the scarce MTCs on ebay with little or no competition!

 

 

6/14/14

Colorado, Durango.  1983/1984 Narrow Gauge Train $2.00.  Mintage 5,000.  Catalog value $5.00.  First year for the new $2.00 denomination in this series that lasted 7 years (plus 3 more years with medals that did not have a denomination.  Offered for $12.99 plus $2.99 shipping.  Just too much for now, I think.  Listed two more weeks at this price, then dropped to a $11.99 start.  That lasted two weeks and then the seller placed it in his store with a $12.00 Buy It Now price.  Still available August 8.

 

 

6/14/14

Michigan, Brighton.  1967 Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 5,000.  Catalog value $4.00.  Opening bid was $4.99 with an additional charge of $1.00 for shipping.  There were no bids, so the seller lowered his start price to $2.99.  Still no luck, and it is still available at that level today, August 8. 

 

 

6/15/14

Iowa, Emmetsburg.  1975 Irish Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $3.50.  Offered for $4.99 plus $1.00 for shipping.  No bids, and it has been offered every week since at the same price.  Still available as of August 8. 

 

 

6/15/14

Iowa, Emmetsburg.  1981 Irish Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $3.50.  Offered for $4.99 plus $1.00 for shipping.  No bids, and offered every week since at the same price.  The current weekly auction ends August 13.

 

 

6/15/14

Iowa, Emmetsburg.  2008 Irish Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Too new to be in the catalog.  Offered for $4.99 plus $3.32 for shipping.  No bids, and the item was not relisted.  These late years are quite scarce, usually with a mintage of 1,000 or less, so I am surprised it did not sell.

 

 

6/15/14

North Dakota.  1962 Little League World Series Half Dollar.  Mintage unknown.  Catalog value $5.00.  Comes in two varieties - golden brass and nickel-silver - each apparently equally scarce.  This was the golden brass (goldene) variety.  Offered for $8.22 plus 99¢ shipping.  No bids, so the seller raised the opening bid to $12.55, but with an Or Best Offer option, and it sold the following week to whoever offered the satisfactory amount…but ebay will not disclose the amount it sold for.  Another stupid ebay policy.

 

 

6/16/14

Iowa, Clare.  1974 Irish Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $5.00.  Offered for $4.99 plus $2.00 shipping.  No bids.   Repeatedly relisted until July 22 when the seller finally ended the listing unsold.

 

 

6/16/14

North Carolina.  Edenton 250th Anniversary Token Penny.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.50.  A hard-to-find issue.  Offered, and sold to a single bidder, at the opening bid of  $7.99 plus $2.99 shipping.

 

 

6/17/14

Alaska, Sitka.  1963 Alaska’s Historical Capital Dollar in SILVER.  Mintage 500.  Catalog value $20.00.  This one started at $17.50 (plus $1.90 shipping) and sold for $20.15 after two bids.

 

 

6/17/14

California, Fort Bragg.  1976(77) Bicentennial Dollar.  Private issue for Chernoff’s Jewelers.  Scarcer variety with no water lines.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $12.50.  This was a worn, dirty and holed example.  Offered for $9.99 with FREE shipping.  No bids.  The following week the token was lowered to $8.95 and offered for 5 more weeks before the seller ended the listing without a sale.

 

 

6/17/14

Iowa, Story City.  1971 Scandanavian Days Dollar.  First year in this 6 year series.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.00.  Up for bid at $6.99 ($9.99 BIN), either way with FREE shipping.  No bids for a couple weeks, so the seller lowered his start to $5.99 and got two bids.  It sold for $6.75, still a bit less than what it had been priced at in previous weeks.

 

 

6/17/14

Iowa, Story City.  1972 Scandanavian Days Dollar.  Second year in this 6 year series.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.00.  Start was $6.99 with FREE shipping.  Sold to a single bidder two weeks later when the seller lowered his start to $5.99.

 

 

6/17/14

Iowa, Story City.  1974 Scandanavian Days Dollar.  Third year in this 6 year series (there was no issue in 1973).  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.00.  Opening bid was  $6.99 with FREE shipping.  No bids for a couple weeks, but when the seller lowered his start to $5.99 a couple weeks later it sold to a single bidder.

 

 

6/17/14

Oregon, Linkville - Klamath Falls Centennial Dollar struck in SILVER.  Mintage 200.  Catalog value $20.00.  Started at $7.99 plus $2.25 shipping.  There were just 3 bidders and I was very pleased to win it for $9.50 - about $10.00 less than the silver in it is worth!  Unfortunately, it was apparently lost in the mail and I never received the item.  This happens suspiciously often when I win items for a bid significantly below their intrinsic value.  Glad I didn’t need it for my collection like the last silver MTC I won cheap and never received!

 

 

6/18/14

Arizona, Prescott.  Undated Slippery Gulch 10,000 Bucks.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $22.50.  Slabbed by NGC, and graded “Genuine” because it shows evidence of being buried and then cleaned.  Actually about as good as they come…I’d call it Very Fine.  Quite scarce, and I was glad to have a chance to buy another.  Unfortunately I came across the listing just before it closed, and my bid submission was late.  No one else bid and it went unsold.  I asked the seller if he was willing to sell it, but he told me I could try it again when he relisted it.  I have been watching for a couple months now, and it still has not reappeared.

 

 

6/18/14

Arizona, Tombstone.  “1879” Helldorado Days Dollar.  Uniface “Anillo” restrike of the reverse in aluminum, housed in a NGC “slab” and graded MS63.  I was the only person who wanted it and won it for the opening bid of $10.00 plus $3.00 shipping.

 

 

6/18/14

Nevada, Boulder City 1978 Barter Buck.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.50.  This one, however appeared to be struck in gilt brass instead of the usual nickel silver.  I compared the color of some of his other offerings and some seemed to be too “golden looking”, so I didn’t bid and take a chance that it might be a new metal.  Offered for an opening price of $9.99 plus $2.25 postage.  There were no bids and it was offered the following week for $4.99 - which was cheap enough for me to bid on it for a duplicate.  No one else bid, and I won it for the opening price.  When it arrived, it turned out to be the standard nickel silver version, as I suspected.  Very often electronic cameras capture false colors, so be careful when you find something that looks like a new finish.  I have written several times of pieces that appear to be silver online, but end up being gilt brass. 

 

 

6/18/14

Oregon, Canby.  1959 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 5,000.  Catalog Value $3.50.  Starting bid was 8.99 ( $26.99 Buy It Now) plus $2.99 shipping.  No bids this week, and listed until July 6 when the seller ended the item “because there was an error in the listing”.

 

 

6/19/14

Alaska, Matanuska Valley. 1965 set of 8 pieces, 1¢ to $10.00.  Mintage probably 2,000 - this set numbered 511.  Catalog value $20.00.  The set, housed in a hard plastic case, started at $9.99 and sold for $24.50 after 11 bids.

 

6/19/14

Arizona, Prescott.  1915 Frontier Day Celebration Dollar.  Anillo restrike of the obverse in a NGC slab, graded MS64. About 25 pieces struck.  Catalog value $10.00.  This one started, and ended at $10.00 plus a $3.00 postage fee.

 

 

6/19/14

Arizona, Tombstone.  1929 50th Anniversary Quarter.  Uniface (obverse) 1960’s Anillo restrike, in a NGC ‘slab” graded MS65.  Low mintage, perhaps 25 or so.  Starting bid was $10.00 plus $3.00 shipping.  I was the only bidder.  A giveaway! 

 

 

6/19/14

Texas, Austin.  1974 Texas Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Not listed in my previous edition, going into the next at $5.00.  Start was 99$ plus $1.95 shipping.  After 3 bids it sold for $5.50.  Another specimen offered by the same seller sold two days later for $10.51, still plus that $1.95 shipping.

 

 

6/20/14

Massachusetts, North Andover.  1955 Centennial Dime.  Private issue for Val’s Restaurant.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $10.00.  Although this piece was slightly used, it is quite scarce.  Offered for $9.99 plus $3.00 shipping.  I was the only bidder and won it for the opening price.  Another goodie for the trade box!

 

 

6/20/14

Nevada, Las Vegas.  “1878” Las Vegas Dollar.  Convention Center reverse.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $3.50.  This was a circulated example showing considerable wear and grading between Very Fine and Extremely Fine.  Offered and sold for the $9.99 opening bid plus $3.50 shipping.

 

 

6/20/14

Pennsylvania, Jeanette.  1963 75th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Mintage 6,000.  Catalog value $4.00.  This one was described as a vintage antique token and started at a bid of $19.98 plus $2.50 shipping.  No bids.  Still available in mid August.  The same seller has another example available for a Buy It Now price of $29.98.     

 

 

6/21/14

New Jersey, Point Pleasant Beach.  1961 Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar.  Mintage 5,000.  Catalog value $5.00.  Offered for $5.00 plus $3.00 shipping.  There were no bids and the listing was ended unsold.

 

 

6/21/14

Wyoming, Cheyenne.  Undated Frontier Days Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $3.50.  Starting bid was $7.99 plus $1.30 shipping.  No bids this week at this level, but it did sell to a single bidder the following week.

 

 

6/22/14

Connecticut, Haddam.  1962 Tercentenary Half Dollar.  Mintage 3,000.  Catalog value $6.50.  This one in about uncirculated condition.  It opened, and closed, at the $1.99 plus $1.95 shipping starting bid.

 

 

6/22/14

Illinois, Braidwood.  1965 Centennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $7.50.  Start was $3.99 plus $1.95 shipping.  I was the only bidder.  Whatta bargain!

Illinois, Palestine.  1961 Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 5,000.  Catalog value $3.50.  Start was $3.99 plus $1.95 shipping.  No bids.  Not relisted.  

 

 

6/22/14

Illinois, Red Bud.  1967 Centennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.50.  This one was offered as Red Bud, Oklahoma - not Illinois.  Still there were no bids at the $1.99 plus $1.95 shipping start.

Kansas, Clay County.  1966 Centennial Half Dollar.  Unknown Mintage.   Catalog value $7.50.  The opening bid was $4.99 plus $1.95 shipping.  There were no bids on this scarce item, probably because it appeared kind of ugly and spotty in the image.

California, San Diego.  Undated (1935-1936) First Chance Saloon Dime.  The same token offered first (unsuccessfully) on March 18.  This time the seller described the token as being from Del Mar, California, a scarce San Diego County location.  The token was used in “The Gulch”, a pioneer town attraction, in Balboa Park, San Diego during the 1935-1936 World’s Fair.  Del Mar has been the location for the San Diego County Fair since 1936, but “the Gulch” was not located there.  The tokencatalog.com site does list Del Mar as a possible location for this token (since the County Fair is held there), but The Gulch was a World’s Fair attraction - not a County Fair attraction.  Anyway, calling it a Del Mar token made the token much more salable.  Start was lowered to $45.00 and the new description attracted 6 bids and this time the token sold for $132.49. 

 

 

6/24/14

Maryland, Frederick County.  1962 Hagerstown Bicentennial Half Dollar.  Rare April 6 redemption date.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $15.00.  Vastly rarer than the February 15 redemption date variety.  I bid, and would gladly have paid, several times catalog value for this piece even as a duplicate - but I won it for the opening bid of $9.99.  Made my day!

Ohio, Hamilton.  1966 175th Anniversary Dollar.  Mintage 1,000.  Catalog value $6.00.  This one looked like a really really choice proof-like specimen offered for a start of $9.99 with FREE shipping.  I was the only bidder and won it for the opening price, but when it arrive it was not proof like - just the standard finish.  You can do a lot to the image of a coin if you know what you are doing!  I was disappointed, but with a mintage of just 1,000 pieces, I can’t go very far wrong!

Hawaii, Maui.  1992 cased set of 3, nickel silver, gold plate, and sterling.  The start was $22.99, but shipping to the U. S. (this was from a Canadian seller-I hope the postage was less if it were delivered to an address in Canada) was $17.50.  It was also just a one-day auction.  There were only three bids and it sold for $28.55 - really cheap until you factor in the postage.
