MTCs on Ebay March 2018

 

 

3/1/18

Alaska, Fairbanks.  1967 Alaska Purchase Centennial Dollars - set of 3, red, white and blue plastic.  Offered for a starting bid of $2.99 plus $3.50 shipping.  The next week the start dropped to $2.00 and by the second week at this price, the item had found a buyer at the starting price.

 

 

3/1/18

(California, San Francisco), undated large (2 3/4 inch) lucky souvenir coin style Souvenir Dollar.  The obverse with a view of the newly completed Golden Gate Bridge, LUCKY DOLLAR above and Gary / 1937 engraved in the field.  The reverse with a bear enclosed in a wreath, walking left.  Above, LUCKY DOLLAR.  MADE IN JAPAN in small letters below the wreath.  Not listable because I do not include Good Luck Coins in the listing.  The souvenir Dollar side would be good, but with the addition of the Lucky Dollar inscription, it is no longer listable.  Too bad, I thought it was a neat item.  However at a start of $17.50 plus $3.50 shipping and more than a dollar tax, it was too expensive for me anyway.  I guess everyone else thought so too, because it remains available at the same price two months later.

 

 

3/1/18

Illinois, Hoopeston.  1971 Sweet Corn Capitol Official Souvenir Coin in antiqued brass.  Start $4.00.  Postage $3.99.  No bids.  Not relisted.

 

 

3/1/18

Texas, Hillsboro.  1965 Diamond Jubilee Souvenir Dollar.  No die break type, and unfortunately with a very noticeable spot near the center of the obverse.  No bids.  Not relisted.

 

 

 

3/2/18

Minnesota, Cass County.  1958 Minnesota Centennial Half Dollar.  Graded MS-64 by NGC.  Graded AU by me.  The start was 99¢ plus $1.99 postage.  There were 11 bids by 9 bidders and it sold for $37.00.  Part of the reason it brought this much is probably that it was called HK-517A by the seller, both in the title and description, and that apparently attracted the bids of the SCD collectors.  By Hibbler and Kappen definitions, this is NOT a So Called Dollar.  It has a denomination and a redemption date.  That makes it a MTC not a SCD. 

 

 

3/3/18

Hawaii, Maui.  2015 Maui Trade Dollars.  For sale as a BIN item for $11.99 with FREE shipping.  The seller had 5 available, and all of them sold.

 

 

3/4/18

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1972 London Bridge Dollar.  This auction was for a pair of these, both Uncirculated.  They sold to a single bidder at the $9.99 plus $3.50 opening bid.

3/5/18

Oregon, Bend.  1959 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar.  The start was $9.55 and the postage $2.90 more.  Although in choice condition and rather scarce, this piece did not find a bidder.  After a couple weeks it was made a BIN item at the same price for another week, but then the listing was ended because “the item is no longer available”.  It came right back anyway, and has been available ever since at the same price.  Currently (until April 30) available for 12% off - $8.40 or there is a Make Offer option as well.  Just for fun I made a $5.00 offer - that would make my cost $7.90, less than $2.00 over my catalog price from 18 years ago.  Will report here if the offer is accepted, the seller has 2 days to respond.  ***The seller accepted my offer!***

 

 

3/6/18

3/8/18

Kentucky, Ashland.  1954 Centennial Half Dollar in XF/AU condition, typical for this issue which is much harder to find in strictly uncirculated condition.  Start $2.99.  Postage $2.75.  Listed for 2 weeks before the seller ended the listing unsold.

 

 

3/8/18

Oregon, Astoria.  1966 Bridge Dedication Half Dollar.  Start was $4.99 plus $3.50.  After 3 weeks the opening bid was reduced to $4.00, but the seller then ended his listing because “the item is no longer available”.

 

 

3/8/18

North Dakota, Jamestown.  1972 Fort Seward Centennial Half Dollar.  Uncirculated, but toned a bit dark.  Start 99¢ Postage $1.00.  Cheap enough, but there were no bids - and in fact nobody bid on this bargain until April 20 when the lot was ended unsold.  It just wasn’t a very pretty specimen!

 

 

3/9/18

Ohio, Brunswick.  1965 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  Start $5.00.  Postage $3.00.  Listed until March 30 when the lot was ended unsold.

3/10/18

Florida, Fort Pierce.  1963 125th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the rather high $9.99 with FREE shipping start.  Maybe it looked like a bargain compared to that very worn one I mentioned back in January’s listing that is still out there for $25.00 plus $3.50!

 

 

3/10/18

Oklahoma, Lawton.  1951 50th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Extremely Fine/About Uncirculated condition which is about average for this hard to find issue that is quite scarce in fully uncirculated condition - and this one had a big dark corrosion spot on the reverse.  Too bad!  Start was $6.95 and postage $3.00 more, and nobody wanted it!   It became a BIN item somewhere along the line, and it is still available two months later.

 

 

3/10/18

Washington, Ellensburg.  1967 Robber’s Roost Centennial Dollar.  Start $6.99.  Postage.  $3.50.   No bids.  Too much!  Listed for only a single week.

 

 

3/11/18

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1993/1994 London Bridge Dollar struck in Silver.  Mintage 500.  Catalog value $25.00.  I can’t believe no one else bid at the well-below-silver opening price of $9.00, but that’s what happened.  Quite a bargain for my duplicate box even considering the $3.50 shipping charge!  The seller said the piece was not marked as silver, but was a proof piece and numbered 241 on the edge. The regular issue for this year was struck in copper.

 

 

3/11/18

3/11/18

Nebraska, Cozad.  1973 Centennial Half Dollar.  A very choice example that tempted me for a while.  Start $ 9.95 with FREE shipping.  It ended up a BIN item at the same price 4 weeks later, still without finding a new home.

 

 

3/11/18

New York, Hamburg.  1962 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  Start $10.00 with FREE shipping.  No bids.  The second week it was a BIN item at the same cost.  No one bought.  The seller then ended his listing “because there was an error in the listing - but it came right back anyway with a $6.50 with FREE shipping start. 

 

 

3/11/18

Ohio, Portsmouth - Scioto County.  1965 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Start $2.99.  Postage $2.75.  The following week the start was lowered to $1.99, and one bidder placed two bids and won it for the opening price.

3/12/18

Kansas.  1961 Official Centennial Coin for Russell County.  Unknown mintage.  Russell is one of those “middle of the pack” counties in this series.  Not rare, but not easily found either.  The start was $5.95 and postage was $3.50 more.  It ended up a BIN item at the same cost, and on May 4 The listing was ended by the seller.

 

 

3/12/18

3/12/18

Missouri, Kirkwood.  1965 Centennial Commemorative Half Dollar.  Tree variety, Uncirculated but spotty.  Start $2.99  Postage $3.25. It finally sold on April 30 to a single bidder at the opening price.

 

 

3/13/18

Colorado, Fort Morgan.  1959 Uniface.  Holed at 9:00 for keychain.  Worn Very Fine condition with a few bumps on the reverse.  Sold to a single bidder for the $19.95 with FREE shipping start.  Ebay pointed out another piece, a bit better.  I’d call it nearly XF with a little of the gold coloration still present around the lettering. Holed at 9:30.  It is a Buy It Now item that will end on May 13.

 

 

3/13/18

3/15/18

Idaho, Weiser.  1961 Idaho Centennial NON-spendable variety.  Not cataloged.  This variety has had the redemption information removed, and SOUVENIR engraved in its place.  A new die was necessary because “pressure” from the Feds made the original spendable variety illegal and subject to confiscation.  The start was 95¢ plus $2.95.  It sold for $4.07 after 6 bids by 3 bidders.

3/15/18

Mississippi, Laurel.  1957 Diamond Jubilee/Free State of Jones masonite nickel.  About 95% of the lettering remains, but there are a few edge bumps.  Start was a very steep $19.99, and then a buyer would have to pay $3.50 more for shipping.  It went nearly a month without a bid, then during its fourth week someone bid and won it for the opening price.

 

 

3/15/18

Missouri, Jasper.  1961 Civil War Centennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.00.  Start $4.99.  Postage  $3.99.  The coin was nice enough, but apparently the price was too high, as it is still available at the original price two months later.

3/18/18

3/18/18

Iowa, Glidden.  1967 Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $6.50  Postage $3.00 more.  Looks Uncirculated, but not a really choice (or even average) example.  There is no surprise that it is still available two months later, still at the same price (but now a BIN item).

3/19/18

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1981/1982 London Bridge Dollar.  Offered for a $2.00 plus $1.50 start.  Seems pretty reasonable, but no one bid, and the item was not relisted. 

 

 

3/19/18

Idaho, Couer d’Alene.  1963 Idaho Centennial Half Dollar.  Opening Bid  $3.00 plus $1.50 shipping.  Sold to a single bidder at the opening price.  The seller actually had two of these tokens ending today, offered as single lots 40 minutes apart.  Both had the same opening.  Both of them sold for that opening price to the same single bidder (same feedback) who probably saved on the postage costs for the pair of them.

 

 

3/19/18

Illinois, Shawneetown.  1960 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  Start $3.95 plus $3.75.  After 6 bids from 3 bidders it sold for $6.65.  A choice example of this common issue that apparently benefitted from a great image!

 

 

3/19/18

3/19/18

South Dakota, Sisseton.  1952 60th Anniversary Silver Slug Dime.  The start was $5.00, and after 7 bids by 3 bidders, I won this truly scarce token for a very reasonable $7.78.  Unfortunately, when the token arrived, it turned out to be rather badly bent - a fact that was not apparent in the image.  The token was in an old cardboard 2X2 holder, and I’m sure the seller was not aware of the problem.  Even with the damage, it was still a pretty good deal at this price.

 

 

3/19/18

Texas.  Undated Twenty Texas Bucks struck in aluminum.  The start was $15.00 with FREE shipping.  Hmmm.  Listed for 3 more weeks without a bid, then the lot was ended by the seller.

 

 

3/19/18

Wyoming, Casper.  1980 Casper Dollar.  Start $8.49 plus $2.66.  It is still out there, at the same price (now BIN) with the current listing ending on May 23.  Curiously, the  same seller listed a second specimen, just as nice, two days later for $5.49 plus $2.66.  It too, is still available - ending on May 30.

 

 

3/20/18

Wisconsin, Milwaukee.  1902 Jahrmarkt Dime.  XF/AU condition, but with a few small patches of aluminum corrosion.  This was the 33mm octagonal version.  The start was $9.99, and after 8 bids by 3 bidders, the piece sold for a remarkable $52.89! 

 

 

3/21/18

Michigan, Holland.  1950 Tulip Time Quarter, about uncirculated.  Sold to a single bidder at the $5.99 plus $3.00 start.  A nice one, better than most!

 

 

3/21/18

3/21/18

Ohio, Elyria.  1958 125th Anniversary Half Dollar.  A nice bright uncirculated example.  Start 95¢ plus $2.95 shipping.  Two people each placed single bids and it sold for $1.11.  Seems cheap for an uncirculated piece 60 years old! 

 

 

3/22/18

Hawaii.  1883-1983 King Kalakaua Test Strike.  Three partial coins on 3 of the 4 corners of a piece of scrap metal.  This one had a start of $95.00 and a BIN price of $125.00, either way with FREE shipping.  It is still available, despite reductions to $75 for an opening bid and $97.50 BIN.  The current listing ends on May 22.

3/23/18

Mississippi, Gautier.  1986/1987 Centennial “thing” - maybe a dollar, maybe something else entirely.  The reverse reads IN A JOINT CELEBRATION OF OUR NATION’S BIRTH AND THE BIRTH OF OUR CITY around the edge with the dates 1986   1987 flanking a large numeral 1.  The start was $10 and postage was $3.00 more.  Uncirculated, but with a straight clip from 1:00 to 2:00 on the rim.  I had not seen this item before, and a quick google search didn’t shed any light on it, so I had to bid.  No one else wanted it, so I ended up with it at the opening bid.  Oh boy!

 

 

3/23/18

Montana, Hardin.  1971 Hardin Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Start $9.95 plus $2.75.  There were 9 bids from a pair of bidders, and it ended up selling for $19.51.  Wow - very high!  Perhaps they thought it was the silver version, the seller did not specify the metal.

3/24/18

Kansas, Clay County.  1966 Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $1.99.  Postage $2.69.  I bought one of these, and the seller replaced it with another.  No one else bid, so the seller lowered the price a bit to $1.79.  The seller now notes that he has 6 of these available.  The current listing ends on May 30.  I bid because the token pictured was an especially choice one - and I ended up with that piece.

 

 

3/24/18

New York, Albany.  1963 Tulip Festival Half Dollar.  Start $5.00.  Postage $4.00.  Listed until April 23 when the item was ended without attracting a bid.

Oklahoma, (Tulsa).  Undated International Petroleum exposition 5 Cent and 10 Cent Tokens.  Each offered as a separate lot and each with a $5.00 start and $4.00 shipping fee.  Condition, AU/UNC.  Neither token received a bid, and they were not relisted.  This Exposition was held at irregular intervals from 1923 to 1979.  These tokens look to be of typical 1930’s and 1940’s style.  I don’t list them, but I put them in my “wannabe” collection when I come across them.

 

 

3/25/18

Illinois, Delavan.  1962 QuasquiCentennial Half Dollar.  The start was just $2.50, and a very reasonable 70¢ postage fee.  No bids, and not relisted.

Iowa, State Center.  1973 Fantasy of Roses Tournament “One Hundred Scents”.  Start $20.00 plus $3.50 shipping.  Wow!.  It lasted two weeks on Ebay, then the listing was ended by the seller unsold.

Nebraska, Gothenburg.  1960 Pony Express Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $3.00.  Postage FREE.  No bids, so the next week the seller upped the opening bid to $3.25, which didn’t work either.  Then he dropped it to a $1.00 plus $1.00 shipping start, which was just too low, so I bid and won it for the opening bid.

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1972 London Bridge Dollar.  Choice uncirculated.  Start $3.99 plus a rip-off $5.50 for postage.  There were two bids from two bidders and it sold for $4.25.

Illinois, St. Francisville.  1962 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  Start $3.00 plus $3.00 shipping.  No bids, and the start was lowered to $2.49.  Still no bids, so the seller ended the listing unsold on April 27.

Arizona, Tombstone.  1929 Bank of Helldarado Dollar, no counterstamps.  Holed at the center.  Very Fine condition with a few minor bumps and scratches.  The start was $9.99 plus $3.50 shipping.  It sold for $16.50 after 4 bids by 3 bidders.

Iowa, Vinton.  1969 Centennial Half Dollar struck in silver.  Mintage 250.  Catalog value $20.00.  The seller apparently did not realize it was silver, or at least did not mention what it was made of.  Sure looked silver to me, so I bid.  It turned out that I was the only bidder and won it for the opening price of $4.99 with FREE shipping.  Hey - it would have been a good deal even if it had been the brass version.  That one has a mintage of just 2,000 and a catalog value of $6.00!  The seller must have been satisfied because a couple weeks later he listed another one at the same price.  This time I had a little competition, and a single other guy bid $8.00, so I had to pay $8.50 for this one.  No complaints about that!

3/31/18

North Dakota, Bismarck.  1961 Dakota Territory Centennial Half Dollar.  Variety with December 31 redemption date and inscription reverse, struck in nickel-silver.  A very pretty example of a scarce low mintage issue with pink, yellow and blue toning, but just priced too high - $24.60 with FREE Shipping.  The price gradually went down to $21.83, but in its most recent listing - ending June 3 - it went up a bit to $22.05.  Someday, in the not too distant future, tokens of this scarcity and quality will readily bring this price and more

Washington, Walla Walla.  1936 Cardboard note Good for 10¢ during the Whitman Centennial Celebration.  Not previously listed, but a prime candidate for inclusion in the next edition.  Offered for $5.00 plus $3.00 shipping.  When no one bid the item ws made a BIN piece at $10.00 and has been available at that price ever since.  No one has bid on it for two months - what does that tell you about its value?
