MTCS ON EBAY MARCH 2016

 

3/1/16

Guam.  1974 Dollar, un-numbered, gold-plated version.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously cataloged in this metal.  Equally as scarce as the un-numbered silver plated version which is listed at $10.00.  This one was nice bright gold on the obverse, but it had some spots and staining on the reverse, apparently from being stored in one of those foam-backed snap-lock plastic cases.  Sold to a single bidder for the $9.95 plus $2.45 shipping opening price.

 

3/2/16

Montana, West Yellowstone.  1982 Federation of Fly Fishers Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.50.  Start was 99¢ plus $2.60 shipping.  The piece sold for $1.84 after  4 bids by 2 bidders.

 

 

3/2/16

Nebraska, Cozad.  1973 Centennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.50.  This piece was listed at a $4.97 start plus an additional $3.97 for shipping.   The seller noted that the token was aged and showed some evidence of handling - but the image looked like a decent Uncirculated example.  There were no bids and the token was not relisted.

 

 

3/2/16

Pennsylvania, Beaver Falls.  1944 Diamond Jubilee Cork Nickel, red printing.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $7.50.  Sold to a single bidder for the $5.00 plus $2.45 opening bid.

 

 

3/3/16

Mississippi, Waveland.   1968 St. Clare’s Fair.  Aluminum Good for 25¢ at Dart Booth.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously cataloged.  I don’t think I will list this one as it does not appear to be an event of general community participation.  Any ideas? - let me know your thoughts.  This example started at $5.00 plus $2.50 shipping, and sold for $5.50 after two bids.

 

 

3/3/16

New York, Schenectady County.  1959 Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 15,000.  Catalog value $4.00.  This auction was for one graded MS 64 and encapsulated in a “slab” by NGC.  A nice token, and - for a change - graded accurately!  Start was 99¢ with FREE shipping, and it sold for $16.38 after 10 bids by 7 bidders. 

 

 

3/3/16

Oregon, Oregon City.  1939 Territorial Days 5¢ and 10¢ Cardboard Beaver Chips.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $12.50 for the 5¢ and $15.00 for the 10¢.  These in the typical slightly used condition - Very Fine to Extremely Fine.  The pair started off at $10.00 and sold for $19.49 after 5 bids by 3 bidders.  Postage was an additional $2.49.  A nice bargain for the lucky bidder - who was prepared to bid a higher amount, but the 5th bid was not needed.      

 

 

3/4/16

Montana.  1964 Official Souvenir Dollar struck in Sterling Silver.  Mintage reportedly 1,000 but the edge number on this piece was #1091.  Catalog value $15.00.  Start was 99¢ plus $2.60.  After 6 bids by 4 bidders it sold for $13.38.

 

 

3/4/16

South Dakota.  1981 - 1990 Set of 10 South Dakota Souvenir Dollars in .999 Silver.  Mintage unknown.  Catalog value currently $20.00 each for the first 5 years, then $22.50 for the next 4 years, and $25.00 for the final year.  This set sold for the opening bid of $150.00 plus $2.45 shipping.  

 

 

3/4/16

South Dakota.  1989 Dakota Territorial Dollar in .999 Silver.  Mintage 350 with a 1988 copyright marking on the edge, and Unknown mintage with a 1989 copyright date.  Catalog value $17.50 for the 1988 and $22.50 for the 1989.  This one was edge numbered #311, so it was no doubt the 1988 version.  Offered, and sold, for the $15.00 plus $2.45 opening bid. 

 

 

3/4/16

Texas, Winkler County.  1960 Golden Jubilee Half Dollar in Silver Plate, up/up orientation.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $7.50.  Very scarce, and worth well over the catalog value.  I feel very lucky to have won it as a duplicate for the $10.00 plus $2.45 opening bid.

 

 

3/4/16

Virginia, Ball’s Bluff.  1968 Battle of Ball’s Bluff Anniversary Confederate Half Dollar.  Nickel Silver, pierced at top for suspension from a badge - which was not included.  Up/up orientation.  Unknown mintage.  Not listed in this finish in the previous catalog.  The start was $10.00 plus $2.45, but it brought $23.50 after 4 bids by 3 bidders.

 

 

3/4/16

Wyoming, Lander.  1968 Pioneer Days Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.00.  This issue usually comes slightly circulated, and almost always has the finish at least partly rubbed off of the horse and antelope head.  This one was way above average, and I was pleased that there was no competition with me at the $8.00 plus $2.45 opening price.

 

 

3/5/16

Michigan, Greenville.  1944 (1948) Centennial Quarter.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $5.00.  This one differs from the usual one in that it has had a pin and clasp soldered onto the back to wear on clothing.  Sold at the $13.50 with FREE shipping Buy It Now price .  

 

 

3/6/16

Hawaii.  1959 Crossroads of the Pacific Souvenir Coin.  Golden brass variety of the So-Called Dollar issue.  Mintage 10,000.  Catalog value $5.00.  An Uncirculated specimen, but a little spotty.  Offered for $9.95 plus $2.60, this piece attracted two bids and it sold for $13.48.

 

 

3/6/16

Hawaii.  1991 Princess Kaiulani Princess Dala with First Day of Issue Counterstamp.  In original case with Certificate of Authenticity.  Mintage 340.  Not previously cataloged.  Currently available from the Royal Hawaiian Mint website for $225.00.  Offered for just $99.00 plus a reasonable $3.50 shipping, I was surprised that there were no bidders.  Not relisted.

 

 

3/6/16

Hawaii, Hilo.  1964 Merry Monarch Festival Dollar.  Mintage 5,000.  Catalog value $4.00.  Start was $5.95 plus $2.60 shipping, and after 6 bids by 3 bidders it sold for a very respectable $16.25.  

 

 

3/6/16

Minnesota, Virginia.  1958 Minnesota Centennial Iron Nickel.  Mintage 40,000.  Catalog value $2.50.  This specimen a well worn example graded and encapsulated by NGC as being in XF 40 condition. No way - this piece is overgraded by at least 10 points.  The grading services are giving higher and higher grades to the items they grade these days.  I wonder why it is not unusual to see a grossly overgraded coin, but you never see an undergraded one.  Hmmm.  I hope you are not deceived by “professionally” graded coins.  Always look at the COIN, not the GRADE.  OK, I am getting down from my soap box now.  The start was $9.99 plus $3.50 additional for shipping, and it sold for $10.50 after 2 bids.  As an added bonus, this token was called EXTREMELY RARE (in all caps) in the title and description.

 

 

3/6/16

Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.  1926 Treasure Island Doubloon.  Glossy brown Extremely Fine.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously cataloged.  After a 99¢ plus $1.00 postage start, this piece sold for $4 after 5 bidders had their way with it.

 

 

3/6/16

Marshall Islands, Kwajalein.  Undated Kwaj Karnival Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously cataloged.  This Extremely Fine specimen was offered for $2.00 plus $2.60 shipping, but it sold for a remarkable $32.00 after an equally remarkable 32 bids by just 4 bidders.  I already had this piece, and my $8.00 bid was totally crushed by the two guys that repeatedly bid higher than I did!

 

 

3/7/16

Iowa, Burlington.  1964 126th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Mintage 5,000.  Catalog value $3.50.  After a 50¢ start, two bidders placed 7 bids, and it ended up selling for $3.25 plus the 95¢ shipping charge.

 

 

3/7/16

Iowa, Clare.  1978 Irish Dollar.  Mintage unknown.  Catalog value $4.00.  Up for bid at $5.99 with FREE shipping, but it failed to draw any action and ended unsold.

 

 

3/7/16

Iowa, Traer.  1973 Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 1,000.  Catalog value $6.50.  Sold to a single bidder at the $4.00 plus $2.45 shipping fee start.

 

 

3/7/16

North Dakota, Bowman.  1982 75th Anniversary Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $7.50.  Sold to a single bidder at the opening bid of $7.00 plus $2.45 shipping.

 

 

3/7/16

Ohio, Shelby.  1934 Centennial Dime.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $8.50.  This nearly Uncirculated piece Was offered for $5.00 plus $2.45 for postage.  It was a nice item, but no one appreciated it, so I was able to win it for the opening price.

 

 

3/7/16

Utah, Cedar City.  1976 U. S. Bicentennial, William Shakespeare two star variety.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.50.  Offered for an $8.00 plus $2.45 start, this item received no bids - however when offered the following week for a lower start of $5.00, it sold to a single bidder.

 

 

3/8/16

Hawaii.  1983 Kalakaua Kala Dala in Proof Silver.  Mintage 3,044  or 3,200 depending on whose mintage report you are using.  Catalog value $20.00 (back in 1999).  Available for $79.95 plus $4.00 shipping.  This piece is still available on the Royal Hawaiian Mint website for $89.00.  The ebay listing has been going on now for over two months, and still no sale.

 

 

3/9/16

Utah, Cedar City.  1976 Centennial  Dollar altered for use at the Shakespeare Dinner Theater in Salt Lake City.  Mintage unknown, but at least 200 pieces.  Catalog value $6.00.  There were no bids and it was made a Buy It Now item at the same price.  Still available, with the current listing scheduled to end on June 2.

 

 

3/10/16

Montana, Glendive.  1981 Centennial Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $8.50.  This one sold to a single bidder who bid the $4.99 plus $1.99 opening, then placed another higher bid that was not used because there was no competition. 

 

 

3/10/16

Tennessee, Henderson.  1960 Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 2,000.  Catalog value $7.50.  Offered at a start of $7.00, this piece sold to a single bidder.  Postage was an additional $2.45.

 

 

3/11/16

South Dakota.  1989 Dakota Territorial Dollar in Proof Gold Plated Bronze.  Numbered edge.  This variety had a mintage of 354.  Catalog value $10.00.  I was the only guy who wanted this scarce piece at the $5.00 plus $2.45 opening.

 

 

 

3/12/16

Ohio, Shelby.  1934 Centennial Dime.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $8.50.  This sale was for a nice About Uncirculated specimen.  I bought it for the $4.95 plus $2.50 opening bid.

 

 

3/12/16

Washington, Whidbey Island.  1936 7th Annual Water Festival Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $20.00.  This one was in decent Very Fine condition, but with a hole drilled at the top so it could be worn on a chain. There was just one bid at the opening price of $9.00 plus $1.00 postage.

 

 

 

3/13/16

Arizona, Scottsdale.  2014 “Scottsdale Silver” 1 ounce coin.  Unknown mintage.  Not cataloged.  This attractive Proof coin was offered for an opening bid of $27.00 plus $5.00 shipping.  No bids.  Relisted at the same cost ever since then…the current listing ends on May 8.  A pretty coin, but it doesn’t seem to commemorate anything, and Scottsdale Silver isn’t quite a denomination, so I do not think it warrants listing.  If anyone know what this was used for, I’d sure like to know.

 

 

3/13/16

Illinois, Chanute Air Force Base.  1967 50th Anniversary Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.50.  The seller tried an opening bid of $10.00 plus $3.00 shipping for this one.  There were no bids.  It was not relisted.

 

 

3/13/16

Illinois, Greenville.  1965 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.00.  Offered for $7.95 plus $2.50 shipping.  There was no interest at this level, but the seller relisted it for nearly two months at the same price - eventually giving up and ending the listing on May 1.

 

 

3/13/16

Nebraska, Papillion.  1965 John F. Kennedy Souvenir Coin.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.00.   This one was priced at just 99¢, plus $2.59 more for shipping.  There were no bids this week, and despite being listed every week until April 27, no one placed a bid and the item was ended unsold. 

 

 

3/13/16

New Mexico, Tatum.  1959 50th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Mintage 1,000.  Catalog value $17.50.  This one is quite difficult to find.  This example, in slightly used AU condition started out at $4.99 plus $2.75 shipping, attracted 4 bids by 3 bidders, and sold for a healthy $29.88.  Remarkably, another specimen by a different seller - slightly nicer - was sold on the 27th of the month for the opening bid of $4.99 plus $2.45!   Guess who won that one!

 

 

3/13/16

Oregon, Forest Grove.  1949 Pacific University Centennial Wooden Quarter.  Six line reverse variety.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.50.  Starting bid was $4.99 plus $2.99 shipping.  It sold for $8.50 after two bids.

 

 

3/13/16

Pennsylvania, Blakely.  1967 Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage unknown.  Catalog value $6.00.  There were no bids at the $7.98 plus $2.87 start, and the seller chose not to relist it.

 

 

3/13/16

Pennsylvania, Forest Hills Community Golden Jubilee Half Dollar.  Mintage reportedly 1,000, but this turns up with surprising frequency.  I got my first ones from the issuer back in 1969 after responding to articles in both Coin World and Numismatic News, so I suppose they were dispersed so widely among the collecting fraternity that there are plenty available today - but who can say after nearly 50 years!  Anyhow, I catalog them for $4.00 each.  You could have had this one for a starting bid of $14.99 with FREE shipping.  When the listing ended after a one week listing, the seller decided not to relist it. 

 

 

3/14/16

Connecticut, Waterbury.  1924 250th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $7.50.  This example graded AU 50 and encapsulated by NGC.  Start was $14.00 and it sold for $15.59 after 2 bids.  

 

 

3/14/16

Hawaii.  1990 King Kalakaua Silver Hawaii Dala.  Authorized mintage 10,000 - this one numbered 604 on the edge.  Not cataloged in the previous edition of my catalog.  The seller was able to sell two of these at the $37.00 plus $3.50 BIN price.

 

 

3/14/16

Washington, Ephrata.  1973 Freedom Festival Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.00.  This slightly circulated one was a bit more - it had a starting bid of $25.00, with a $2.54 shipping charge.  There were no bids, so the opening was lowered to $21.00, and then $17.00 plus the shipping.  After a couple weeks at this level, the seller ended the listing unsold.  It returned a week or so later with a new photograph, and a new price.  This time the opening bid was $15.00 plus $2.45 as an auction item, or $25.00 Buy It Now, either way plus $2.45 shipping.  Still being offered, with the current listing ending on May 8.

 

 

3/15/16

Alaska.  Pair of 1962 Alaska Booster $20.00 in Golden Brass.  These are the two “pattern” issues , one with a sitting bear and the other with a dog sled with igloo in foreground.  The adopted versions of these have a standing bear and an igloo with a dog sled in the foreground.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $10.00 each.  The pair was offered, and sold, for the $15.00 plus $2.45 opening bid.  The seller offered additional sets in the following weeks.  On the 22nd one was sold for the BIN price of $20.00.  Same on the 23rd.  On the 26th a final set was offered for a starting bid of $15.00, but the sale was ended because the item was “no longer available”.

 

 

3/15/16

Hawaii, Kauai.  Pair of Numbered 1973 Kauai Dollars in Gold Plate and Silver.  Type with one pair of figures at either side of shrine.  Each one numbered 180 on a raised number block on the reverse. After a $29.95 plus $2.95 start, the pair of coins brought $42.88 after 6 bids by 3 bidders.  I was the underbidder at $41.88.  Too bad, I was hoping to get a nice couple of duplicates for traders. 

 

 

3/15/16

New York, Eden.  1962 150th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $12.50, which is now too high with more specimens appearing.  This oxidized brass specimen sold for the $6.95 plus $2.99 opening bid.      

 

 

3/15/16

North Dakota.  1981-90 Ten Piece Set of Souvenir Dollars in Silver.  Mintage uncertain.  Catalog value of the 10 pieces $220.00, in 1999 catalog prices.  This set was a real bargain at $150.00, basically just  melt value, selling to a single bidder at the opening price.  Postage was just $2.45.

 

 

3/15/16 

Ohio, Cleves.  1968 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  Mintage unknown.  Catalog value $5.00.  The starting bid for this XF/AU specimen was was $5.00 plus $2.45 shipping.  There were no bids, and the following week it was offered for  a more reasonable $3.00 opening bid.  When that didn’t work, the seller made it a Buy It Now item at $4.00 plus $2.45.  It is still available at that price.  The current listing ends on June 2.

 

 

3/15/16

South Carolina, Greenville.  1939 Cotton Nickel.  Printed rectangular wooden nickel-style on white canvas.  Unknown mintage.  Not cataloged in the last edition, where the following year’s equally scarce 1940 ROUND version is listed for $7.50.  It will appear in the next edition.  Why not - it is exactly like the listed version but is rectangular instead of round. Available for a starting bid of $14.99 plus $2.00 shipping.  No bids.  Not relisted.  

 

 

3/15/16

Wyoming, Saratoga.  1984 Centennial Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $5.00.  Up for bid starting at $5.00 plus $2.45 shipping, but there were no bids.  Relisted at just $3.00 the following week, it was cheap enough for me, and I won it for the opening bid.

 

 

3/16/16

Hawaii.  1997 Merry Christmas Akahi Dala.  Mintage 500.  Not in previous editions of my catalog.  Start was $50.00 plus $6.80 shipping.  This was one I had needed for a while, and I bid $56.88, knowing that if I lost, I’d have another chance with another specimen offered by the same seller a few minutes later.  There were two bidders, and the other guy outbid me and won the coin for $1.00 more.  No problem…the second piece had the same terms and it turned out that once again there were the same two bidders.  I upped my bid a bit, and this time I won, but it cost me $70.95, again plus that oppressive $6.80 shipping fee.  The seller had more, and the following week up went another example for $50.00, and it sold (based on feedback numbers) to the same fellow who had won the first piece for the opening bid of $50.00 plus.  One more example was offered, and it received no bids.  After a couple weeks at $50.00, the seller dropped the price to $45.00, and when once again it did not sell, the seller gave up and did not list it again.  Just an example of how thin the market for MTC’s really is.    

 

 

3/16/16

Hawaii, Kona.  1980 Kona Coast Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.00.  The start was $6.99 plus $2.99 for shipping.  That was apparently too much for this Extremely Fine token, but the seller relisted it at that level for three more weeks.  Then he tried a couple weeks at 9.50 Buy It Now, again plus that $2.99 shipping fee.  The lot was ended unsold on April 30.

 

 

3/16/16

Missouri, Liberty and Clay County.  Sesqicentennial Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.50.  This one was set with a $6.00 start and a $2.50 shipping fee.  Sold to a single bidder at the opening amount.

 

 

3/16/16

Nevada, Las Vegas.  “1878” Las Vegas Dollar with Dancing Girl.  Variety with a shiny nickel silver “dollar” depicted in the center, surrounded by a dark nickel-silver border.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $5.00.  This specimen was described as a ”Vintage 1878 Las Vegas Morgan Dollar Commemorative Convention Silver Coin”.  Start was $19.95 with FREE shipping, but after two bids by as many bidders it sold for $20.50.  Although at first glance it does appear to be a Morgan Dollar encased coin, anyone who has seen the real article would be able to tell it was a copy.  Also, the only thing “silver” about this piece is the plating on the central part of the obverse. 

 

 

3/17/16

Michigan, Nashville-Barry County.  1969 Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage unknown.  Catalog value $2.00.  This one went up for bid in March, and is sit available two months later.  The $5.00 plus $2.00 start (later BIN) is just too much for this really easy-to-find piece.

  

 

3/17/16

South Dakota.  Set of 12 South Dakota Souvenir Dollars in heavy plastic case, including 1 each for the years 1971 to 1980, plus two 1972 “error” coins which had the South Dakota Dollar reverse muled with the North Dakota obverse.  All in nickel silver, except for one of the error 1972 coins , which is struck in copper.  Mintage for the standard coins, 8,000 each, but the number produced of the error coins is not known.  Catalog value for the 12 pieces is $43.00.  Start was $39.00 plus  $9.45 shipping.  There were no bids, but the following  week when the lot was reduced to $29.00 plus $9.45, it did sell to a single bidder.   

 

 

3/17/16

South Dakota, Rapid City.  1970 25th Anniversary Central States Fair Dollar.  Mintage unknown.  The Golden Brass piece comes in three minor varieties, but the photo was not clear enough to determine which it was.  They catalog from $5.00 to $6.50 each.  This one sold to a single  bidder for the opening bid of $5.00 plus $2.45 shipping. 

 

 

3/17/16

Texas, San Antonio.  1986 Folklife Festival Dollar.  Mintage 5,000.  Catalog value $2.50.  This piece sold to a single bidder at the 99¢ plus $1.65 opening bid.

 

 

3/17/16

Utah, Cedar City.  1976 U.S. Bicentennial Dollar.  Variety with Revolutionary War Musicians.  Mintage 500.  Catalog value $7.50.  Offered for $7.00 plus $2.45 shipping.  No bids.  Reduced to $5.00 plus shipping.  The latest listing, which ends on June 1, is still $5.00, but now with a Best Offer option.  I think I’ll offer $4.00, and update this listing with the results.  ****Nope - the seller did not respond.

 

 

3/18/16

Colorado, Aspen.  1980 Centennial Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $5.00.  Sold to a single bidder at the $5.00 plus $2.45 start.

 

 

3/18/16

Hawaii.  1976 Aloha Dollar.  U. S. Bicentennial issue with Liberty Bell / Cradle of Liberty reverse.   Oxidized Silver Plate.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $7.50.  Sold to a single bidder - who placed an additional bid in case it was necessary - for the opening bid of $4.50 plus $2.50.   

 

 

3/18/16

Montana, Hungry Horse.  1972 Hungry Horse Dollar, regular unnumbered variety.  Mintage reportedly 10,000.  This token does not show up nearly as often as a 10,000 mintage would suggest, so I suspect the mintage report furnished to me is incorrect.  Of course it is possible that there are five or six thousand pieces still sitting at a bank or Chamber of Commerce, so perhaps the figure is correct.  Catalog value $4.50.  This piece was offered for $7.99 plus 99¢ shipping.  No bids.  Relisted multiple times at the same price, then on May 2 it became a Buy It Now item again at the same price.  Still no  luck, and it became a BIN item for $5.99 with the current listing ending on June 1.

 

 

3/18/16

Nevada.  Undated (1975) Nevada Dollar in Gilt Brass.  Mintage Unknown.  Catalog value $3.50.  There were no bids at its $6.50 plus $2.64 opening, and it was not relisted.

 

 

3/18/16

Oklahoma, Weatherford.  1973 75th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Mintage unknown.  Catalog value $4.50.  Opening bid was set at $5.95 plus $1.99 shipping.  There were no bids, and it was made a Buy It Now item at the same price for a couple more weeks before the seller ended the listing unsold.

 

 

3/18/16

Wyoming, Gillette.  1966 75th Anniversary Half Buck.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.50.  Priced at a bargain 99¢ with FREE shipping, this nice Uncirculated token did not get a single bid!  It was not relisted.

 

 

3/19/16

Wisconsin, Stoughton.  1976 U. S. Bicentennial 30¢/Quarter Riksbanktegn.  Mintage 1,000.  Not previously cataloged.  After a 99¢ plus $2.54 start this piece sold for $1.53 after two bids.  

 

 

3/20/16

Hawaii, Molokai.  1976 Molokai Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $7.50.  Always popular, this piece sold to a single bidder at the opening bid of $29.99 plus $2.79.  The price was pretty high, but this is the first one I have noted on Ebay in over a year.

 

 

3/20/16

Indiana, Sheridan (Millwood).  1960 Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 1,000.  Catalog value $10.00.  This AU/UNC one was available for $12.95 with FREE shipping.  There were no bids and it was offered on the same terms for about 6 weeks.  For the listing ending May 10, it became a Buy It Now offering at the same price.  Still available.

 

 

3/21/16

Minnesota, Alexandria.  1962 Kensington Runestone Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $10.00.  This one in the typical Extremely Fine condition it usually shows up in (when it shows up at all).  The start was $3.00 plus $2.85 shipping, and it sold for $7.50 after 4 bids by 2 bidders.
