MTCs on Ebay March 2019

3/1/19

Alaska, Kodiak.  1966 First Year of the Cry of the Wild Ram 2 1/2 Rubles.  XF/AU condition.  A private issue for Solly’s Office.  Start $8.99.  Postage $2.00.  No bids.  The next week it came back for $7.99 plus $2.00.  The following week it was priced at $6.99, as a Buy It Now item, and on March 29 someone finally bought it.

 

 

3/1/19

Iowa, Emmetsburg.  1982 Irish Dollar.  Start $5.00 plus $3.50 shipping.  There were no bids over the next several weeks, so for the week ending April 18 the start was dropped to $4.75, and then $4.51 where it is as I type this up.  The current listing is set to end on May 3.

 

 

3/2/19

Illinois, Fox Lake.  1957 Golden Anniversary Half Dollar.  The condition was XF/AU and it was quite spotted, especially on the reverse.  The start was $9.99 plus $3.50 shipping.  Two bidders wanted it and after 6 bids (4 of them being unnecessary bids placed by the winner), it sold for $25.00.

 

 

3/2/19

Pennsylvania, New Brighton.  1963 Quasquicentennial Half Dollar.  The starting bid was $4.00 plus an additional $1.50 for shipping.  Nobody bid, so of course the seller raised his start to $5.00 plus $1.50.  When that didn't work, he upped the price again to a $6.00 start.  Still available for that amount, now as a BIN item, two months later.

 

 

3/2/19

Alaska, Fairbanks.  1959 Statehood Dollar Graded MS-66 and encapsulated by NGC.  Start $35.00 plus $3.50 shipping.  The same seller had another, in NGC MS-64 priced at a $25.00 start - again with the $3.50 shipping.  Neither received a bid so the seller continued offering them as Buy It Now items for the same price.  The nicer one is still available two months later, but somewhere along the way (Ebay no longer provides that information) somebody did buy the one graded MS-64 for $25.00 plus $3.50 shipping.

 

 

3/3/19

California, Santa Catalina Island.  1996 $2 Trade Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the opening bid of $6.00 plus $3.29 shipping.

 

 

3/3/19

Oregon, Albany.  1959 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar.  A nice uncirculated example encapsulated by NGC and graded MS-66.  It sold to a single bidder for the $30.00 plus $3.50 opening bid.

 

 

3/3/19

Wisconsin, Green Bay.  1932 George Washington Bicentennial Souvenir Coin.  Very Fine or a bit better, but with heavy spots and RONALD crudely scratched onto the plaque on the reverse.  This one was worn enough to clearly show copper under the white metal plating - so I will change the composition in the catalog.  The start was 99¢ with FREE shipping, and it sold for $11.85 after 13 bids by 5 bidders.

 

 

3/4/19

Alabama, Muscle Shoals.  1961 Civil War Centennial Half Dollar.  Fairly well used VF to XF example with no luster remaining.  There was a $5.00 plus $1.00 postage start, and it sold to the second bidder for $5.50.

 

 

3/4/19

California, Los Angeles.  1981 Bicentennial Dollar, Entertainment Capital variety.  Start $15.50 plus $2.96 shipping.  There was no interest at this level, and it is still being offered for the same start two months later.  The current listing is set to end on May 3.

 

 

3/4/19

Hawaii.  1883-1983 King Kalakaua Centennial Dala Trial Strikes.  Three partial impressions on ring of white metal scrap.  Sold to a single bidder for the opening price of $75.00 with FREE shipping.  The following week the seller offered another of these for the same cost, and it too sold to a single bidder.  You’ve gotta wonder how rare these are when they appear so regularly on Ebay.

 

 

3/4/19

Oklahoma, Lawton.  1976 U.S. Bicentennial $1.00 Discount Token issued by the Lawton Coin Mart, good on a $10.00 purchase.  Start $4.95 plus $1.00 shipping.  No bids at first, but after a month or so, on April 6, it sold to a single bidder for the opening price.

 

 

3/5/19

Alaska.  Alaska Boosters $5 in Antique Bronze.  Moose variety.  Start $24.96 with FREE shipping.  After 3 bids by 2 bidders, this item sold for $76.00.  Wow!  This and the following 9 lots comprise the set of $5.00 Alaska Booster coins dated 1962.  The two sets that I have noted on Ebay sold for $100.00 each, but someone paid over $700.00 to win these individually.

 

 

3/5/19

3/5/19

3/5/19

Hawaii, Maui.  2012 $2 Trade Dollar.  This example started at 99¢ plus $3.50 and sold for $3.25 after 6 bids from 4 bidders.

 

 

3/6/19

California, Lawndale.  Undated Pirate Days Dime.  Luster-less Extremely Fine, the usual grade.  Start $3.99 plus $4.00 shipping.  Still available two months later for the same starting bid and postage, but currently you can Buy It Now for $5.99 plus postage as well.  The current listing ends on May 3.  Beginning on March 24, another seller was offered a specimen in the same grade for $9.99 plus $3.95 shipping.  This one stood out because the holder it was in was marked $122.00!  It is still available at the same start two months later.  The current listing ends on May 22.

 

 

3/6/19

Colorado, Durango.  1982-1983 Narrow Gauge Train Dollar.  Start $8.00, with postage $3.00 more.  The seller listed this item unsuccessfully for four consecutive week-long listings, finally giving up on April 3.

 

 

3/6/19

Colorado, Victor.  “1900” Lesher House Restoration $1.25 Dollar.  Number 532.  Start $150.00 plus $2.75 postage.  No bids.  It came back as a BIN item at the same price and remains available two months later.

 

 

3/6/19

Iowa, Dysart.  1973 Centennial Souvenir Coins - Set of Antique Brass and .999 Silver.  Mintage 550 for the antiqued and reportedly 100 for the silver one - which was numbered 42.  I say reportedly because although it is claimed 100 were made, I have a report of one numbered 211 that sold for $31.20 including postage in 2011.  Could someone have mixed up the date with the number of the coin?  As hard as these are to find, I think it unlikely that there could be more than 200 of these out there.  Catalog value $10.00 for the antiqued brass one, but since I had not actually seen one of these when the last edition of the catalog came out, the silver one was not listed.  The start was 99¢ plus $3.95 shipping, and I was the winner at $66.00 after 11 bids by 4 bidders.  Another one I can cross off the list!

 

 

3/6/19

Minnesota, Virginia.  1958 Minnesota Centennial Iron Nickel.  About Uncirculated.  Sold to a single bidder for the opening bid of $4.99 plus $3.00 postage.

 

 

3/6/19

Montana, Baker.  1976 Fallon County U.S. Bicentennial Dollar.  Start $19.00 plus 71¢ shipping.  When nobody bid, it was made a Buy It Now item at the same price and remains available today, two months later - currently with a Make Offer option.

 

 

3/6/19

New Jersey, Beach Haven.  1954 Barneygat Lighthouse “1917” Doubloon.  Uncirculated.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously listed.  I suppose this will have to be listed as it has a denomination and commemorates the lighthouse.  It also seems to be a little bit scarce as it sold for $17.50 plus $3.00 shipping after 4 bids by 2 bidders.

 

 

3/6/19

Texas.  Undated “Texas Token”.  The reverse reads SHUCKS! / THIS TOKEN / IS / SHORE SHOOTIN’ / GOOD / FOR / NUTHIN’.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously listed.  38mm.  Antiqued Brass. By the Texas Mint.  Start was $2.99 plus $3.00 shipping.  No bids.  Not relisted.

 

 

3/7/19

Alaska, Anchorage.  1967 Alaska Purchase Centennial Dollar in white plastic.  Start $4.99 with FREE shipping.  No bids.  Not relisted.

 

 

3/7/17

Hawaii, Maui.  1997-2001 “Series Two” Trade Dollars in Official Folder, numbered 03750.  The set of 5 coins sold to a single bidder for the opening price of $49.95 with FREE shipping. 

 

 

3/7/19

New York, Schenectady County.  1959 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  Encapsulated and graded MS-64 by NGC.  No wear was noted in the slightly out-or-focus images, but the golden finish on the obverse was beginning to deteriorate and become spotty.  I think that is the one good thing about slabs - they claim that deterioration like this is halted when the token is sealed in the slab.  This one - a less than $5.00 item outside of the slab - had a start of $34.00 with FREE shipping.  After four weeks without a bid the seller raised his price to $45.00 and made it a BIN item.  Still no bidders so the listing was ended “because there was an error in the listing”.  It came back right away anyhow, with no changes in the listing that I can see, and remains available for the same price in early May with no ending date noted.  

 

 

3/7/19

Pennsylvania, Marietta.  1962 Sesqui-Centennial Half Dollar.   Start 58¢ plus 25¢ shipping.  This scarce piece sold to some lucky bidder for just $1.47 after 4 bids by 4 bidders.  If I had known it would sell for so little, I would have been in there bidding too!

 

 

3/8/19

Arizona, Prescott.  1980/81 Frontier Buck.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.00.  This one had a $5.00 with FREE shipping start, but when no one bid the first week, the seller ended his listing unsold.

 

 

3/8/19

Pennsylvania, Littlestown.  1965 Bicentennial Half Dollar.  Start $2.25 plus $1.25 shipping.  On April 16 it was converted to a BIN item for $2.00, now with a slightly higher $1.50 postage fee that balanced off the 25¢ knocked off the price.  Still available at that level in early May.

 

 

3/8/19

Texas, Corpus Christi.  1947 Buccaneer Days Nickel.  Large letters variety.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $7.50.  Start $8.95 plus $3.89 shipping.  No bids.  It was lowered to 8% off ($8.23) for a while, but then made a BIN item for $5.00 plus $3.89 and it did sell on April 11.

 

 

3/8/19

Texas, Corpus Christi.  1947 Buccaneer Days Quarter.  Small letters variety.  The start was $8.95 plus $3.89 shipping.  No bids.  The seller then raised the start to $9.99.  Then the opening bid was lowered to 8% off ($9.19) for a while, but then made a BIN item for $8.88 plus $3.89 and it sold on March 30.

 

 

3/9/19

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1996/97 London Bridge Havasu Dollar.  The standard oxidized copper version, still in original pouch of issue.  Start 99¢ plus $3.25 shipping.  Listed until April 30, and since no one had bid, the seller ended his listing unsold on that date.

 

 

3/9/19

California, Los Angeles.  1981 Bicentennial Dollar - City of Opportunity variety.  Encapsulated and graded MS-63 by ANACS.  Start $15.00 plus $4.25 shipping.  After a week the price dropped to $13.00 and when no one bid the listing was ended “because there was an error in the listing”.  It came right back anyway with no changes that I can see and converted to a Buy It Now item for $16.99 with FREE shipping.  Still available in the middle of May.

 

 

3/9/19

New York, New York City.  1909 Hendrik Hudson Daalder, small size, in gold.  A So-Called Dollar, HK-371.  This one encapsulated and graded MS-64 by NGC.  Start $1,200.00 plus $3.45 shipping.  It is still available, now with a slightly lowered start of $1,175.00 in May.  Ebay is suggesting two others which are currently available:  a PCGS MS-66 for $2,999.00 with FREE shipping, and a NGC MS-67 for $4,499.00 with FREE shipping.  ***NOTE*** This piece apparently sold on March 15, but came back for some reason and IS the exact one that is still being offered for $1,175.00. 

 

 

3/9/19

Vermont, St. Albans.  1963 Bicentennial Half Dollar.  Start $9.90 plus $2.49 shipping.  Listed until April 27 when the seller ended his item, still at the same pice, without a bid. 

 

 

3/9/19

Washington, Hoquiam.  1933 Old Ironsides Dollar.  A very large silver coated wood Depression Era token which has not been listed in previous editions of the MTC catalog, but very well might be listed in the next edition, along with the other coin-like issues of the period (if they commemorate something).  This one was graded “superb uncirculated” by the seller and started at 99¢ plus $3.20 shipping.  After 14 bids by 4 bidders it sold for $105.27.  This piece currently catalogs for $400.00 in the Wooden Money catalog.

 

 

3/10/19

Minnesota, Virginia.  1958 Minnesota Centennial Iron Nickel.  Nice Uncirculated condition.  Start $15.00 plus $2.50 shipping.  For the listing ending April 1 the seller lowered the start to $14.55, then - for the April 10 listing - to $13.82.  There were still no bids, so the seller ended his listing unsold.

 

 

3/10/19

Montana, Virginia City.  1963 Centennial Dollar.  Uncirculated, or very close.  Sold to a single bidder for the $10.00 plus $1.00 opening bid.

 

 

3/10/19

Oregon, Albany.  1959 Oregon Centennial/Timber Carnival Half Dollar.  Encapsulated and graded MS-65 by NGC.  This one was labeled HK-565A, an imaginary So-Called Dollar designation inexplicably assigned by NGC.  The seller noted that the slab had been labeled improperly.  Start 99¢ plus $3.95 shipping.  After 27 bids by 8 bidders this piece sold for $52.05.

 

 

3/10/19

Pennsylvania, Berwick.  1961 175th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $4.90 plus $1.90 opening bid. 

 

 

3/11/19

Arizona, Bisbee.  1913 Moose Money $20.00.  Start $9.99 plus $3.50 postage.  I won this one after 4 bids from 3 bidders for a too-cheap $19.00.

 

 

3/11/19

Alabama, Mobile.  1961 250th Anniversary Half Dollar, Pierre Lemoyne version.  About Uncirculated.  Sold to a single bidder for the 99¢ plus $1.00 opening bid.  Ebay is suggesting 5 others that are currently available for BIN prices of $9.89 plus $1.95, $9.99 plus $5.50, $10.00 plus $3.00, $9.95 plus $5.50 and $7.42 plus $5.16.  One of the $9.95 ones looked like it might be fully uncirculated - all the others showed wear or significant spotting.

 

 

3/11/19

Nebraska, Gothenburg.  1960 Pony Express Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $1.99 plus $1.50.  It sold to the second bidder for $2.24.

 

 

3/11/19

Ohio, West Liberty.  1967 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  Start $6.95 plus $1.05 for postage.  The images showed the typical West Liberty Half, but the title was “Casquette Girls 1721 Biloxi - 1968 Medal Biloxi Miss. So Called Dollar 50 Cent”.  Two months later it remains available, unfortunately still titled incorrectly, but now for a slightly reduced BIN price of $6.42, and currently (mid-May) with a Make Offer option added.  Maybe it would have sold by now if it were described correctly - however it did catch my eye the way it was described.  I just sent a message to the seller, perhaps he will clarify the listing.  

 

 

3/12/19

Alaska (Haines).  Undated copper Tinnah.  From the photo, this one apparently loose and not attached to a card as they sometimes are.  The description, however, the seller notes that the card spells Tinnah with only one “n” - and that it was made at the Port Chilkoot Indian Arts facility in Haines, under the direction of Carl Heinmiller - which suggests that if it was mounted on a card, it was one of the non-redeemable varieties.  Anyway, it did not sell for the $35.00 plus $4.00 start, and was not relisted.  If it had been on one of the redeemable cards, I would have bid.

 

 

3/12/19

Indiana, Evansville.  1962 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar - I could not determine the die variety from the photo.  Sold to a single bidder for the $3.99 plus $3.06 opening bid.

 

 

3/12/19

Texas, Austin.  1974 Texas Dollar in Copper.  Start $6.99 plus $3.50 shipping (BIN $9.99).  Still available two months later, now only as a BIN item for $8.99 plus $3.50.  Currently with a “Make Offer” option.

 

 

3/13/19

Hawaii, Maui.  Set of the 7 Maui Dollars (and Two Dollars) from 2011 to 2017.  All but the 2017 in original flips and with their Certificates of Authenticity.  Sold to a single bidder for the $18.00 plus $7.90 opening bid.

 

 

3/13/19

Montana, Miles City.  1984 Centennial Dollar - private issue of the Range Riders Bar, Lounge & Casino.  Extremely Fine/About Uncirculated.  I was the only bidder interested in this scarce issue.  I won it for the opening bid of $1.99 plus $2.76.

 

 

3/13/19

Virginia, Franklin County.  Undated Franklin County Money Nickel.  Slightly used.  Start $5.99 plus $3.27.  There were no bids and the item was not relisted.

 

 

3/14/19

Alaska.  1962 Alaska Boosters Dollar.  About uncirculated.  Sold to a single bidder for the 99¢ plus $3.66 opening bid.

 

 

3/14/19

Indiana, New Haven.  1966 Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $2.99 plus the same amount again for postage.  No bids this week, and it took an additional two weeks before this token sold to a single bidder for the opening price.

 

 

3/14/19

Oregon, Burns.  1959 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar.  Encapsulated and graded MS-66 by NGC.  The start was 99¢ and postage $3.95 more.  There were 18 bids by 5 bidders, and the token sold for $40.00.  A pretty token  probably worthy of its lofty MS-66 grade.  Good job, NGC - for a change!

 

 

3/14/19

Oregon, Madras - Jefferson County.  1959 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar.  Encapsulated and graded MS-66 by NGC.  The start was 99¢ and postage $3.95 more.  There were 10 bids by 5 bidders, and the token sold for $41.05.  Not quite as nice as the previous item - I’d call it MS-65.

 

 

3/14/19

Wyoming, Gillette.  1966 75th Anniversary Half Buck.  The seller called it Extremely Fine, but it looked like a nice uncirculated example to me.  Start 99¢.  Postage 56¢.  There were no bids and the token was not relisted.

 

 

3/15/19

Missouri, Silver Dollar City.  “1892” Mayor Shad Heller Dollar.  Start 99¢ plus $2.69 postage.  This very slightly circulated piece sold for $5.62 after 4 bids by 3 bidders. 

 

 

3/15/19

Nebraska, Blair.  1969 Centennial Dollar struck in silver.  Mintage 100.  Catalog value $22.50.  The start was 99¢ plus $2.99 shipping. and it sold for $26.00 after 10 bids by 6 bidders.  Cheap!

 

 

3/17/19

Colorado, Sterling.  1959 Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar.  Slightly circulated.  The item started at $1.59 plus $1.20, and eventually sold for $11.50 after 8 bids by 3 bidders.

 

 

3/17/19

Connecticut, Waterbury.  1924 250th Anniversary private issue 50¢ discount token from Upson, Singleton & Co.  The seller said it had “full prooflike BU surfaces both sides”.  Maybe, but apparently the photos did not capture its quality very well.  It looked like it was uncirculated, but it appeared sort of streaky and stained.  Start $9.99 plus $4.00 shipping.  I thought about bidding, but decided against it.  Maybe I should have, because when nobody bid the seller raised the price to $19.00 and made it a BIN item.  It remains available at that price, with the current listing ending on May 17.

 

 

3/17/19

Kansas, Lawrence.  1954 Centennial Half Dollar.  XF/AU condition, which is typical for this issue.  It sold to a single bidder for the $3.99 plus $3.25 opening bid.

 

 

3/18/19

Arizona, Tombstone.  “1879” Souvenir Dollar struck in Copper.  Start $9.99 plus $3.95 shipping.  It sold for $11.99 after 6 bids from 3 bidders.  The final 3 bids were additional, unused bids placed by the winner in case he was outbid.  It turned out they were not necessary.

 

 

3/19/19

New Jersey, Smithville.  Undated Historic Town of Smithville Dollar.  This lot was a pair of these, one toned more darkly than the other.  They sold to a single bidder for the opening price of $5.00 plus $3.00 for postage.

 

 

3/20/19

North Dakota, Bismarck.  1961 Territorial Centennial / Trail West Drama Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the 59¢ plus $1.59 opening bid.

 

 

3/21/19

Arizona, Casa Grande Ruins.  Undated Half Dollar.  Choice about Uncirculated, the kind of token NGC or PCGS would call MS-64.  Start 99¢ plus $3.95 postage.  There were 20 bids from 5 bidders (only the final 3 above the $23.00 level), and it sold for $150.00.

 

 

3/21/19

Arizona, Flagstaff.  Undated Joe Pyland Indian Pow-Wow Quarter.  Unusually worn to somewhere around fine or very fine.  These usually come (when you can find them at all) much nicer.  This one had a $9.95 plus $1.45 start and sold for $10.50 after two bids by as many bidders.

 

 

3/21/19

Hawaii.  1883 / 1980 King Kalakaua Akahi Dala with oxidized nickel silver finish.  Start 95¢ plus $3.25 shipping.  The low start attracted some bids, the lowest of them being $2.58.  It eventually sold for $4.66 after 5 bids from 4 bidders.

 

 

3/21/19

Illinois, Elmwood Park.  1964 50th Anniversary Dollar.  Start $2.49.  Postage $3.74.  The seller relisted his item until May 14, when he finally ended his listing unsold.  Another seller offered one, ending March 26.  It had a 95¢ plus $3.50 start, attracted 4 bids from 2 bidders, and sold for $2.25.

 

 

3/21/19

Michigan, Imlay City.  1970 Centennial Half Dollar.  The start was $2.49, plus $3.74 more for shipping.  Nobody bid, so the seller ended his listing - still at the same price - on May 14.

 

 

3/21/19

Washington, Grand Coulee.  1974 Grand Coulee Dam Dollar.  Uncirculated, with some minor spots.  Buy It Now for $6.55 plus $3.30.  Listed unsuccessfully for one more week, then ended because of a lack of interest by bidders.

 

 

3/23/19

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1973 Havasu Dollar.  This one actually showed some signs of circulation.  Start $4.99 and with a Buy It Now price of $7.25.  Postage $2.99.  It was listed at these terms until May 11 when the seller dropped the auction option and continued to list it for the $7.25 BIN price.  Still available in late May.

 

 

3/23/19

California, Los Angeles.  1981 Bicentennial Birthday Dollar, End of the Rainbow version.  Sold to a single bidder for the $3.00 plus 71¢ opening bid.

3/23/19

Pennsylvania, Linglestown.  1965 Bicentennial Half Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Sold for the opening bid of $2.00 plus $2.85 shipping.

3/24/19

Michigan, Saranac.  1969 Centennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.00.  Start $9.95 (BIN $12.95), with a $2.00 shipping charge.  It remains available two months later, but now only at the Buy It Now price.  The last couple of weeks the seller also added the Make Offer option.

 

 

3/25/19

Michigan, Portland.  1969 Centennial Half Dollar.  Bidding was to start at $7.50, or you could just But It Now for $9.95.  Either way the postage would have been $2.00.  No one bid, so it came back only as a BIN item at $9.95 plus $2.00.  Two months down the line it remains available - currently with a Make Offer button you can press if you want to bargain.

New York, Plattsburgh.  1964 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  Spotty Uncirculated.  Start $10.00 plus $3.49 shipping.  After a while the seller offered it for 10% off - $9.00 - and it sold to a single bidder.

Idaho, Idaho City.  1959 Gold Rush Days Half Dollar.  Private issue for Weigel’s Place.   Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $10.00.  Choice Uncirculated - far nicer than the typical XF/AU.  Start $3.95 plus $2.00 shipping.  I was the only bidder at the $3.95 plus $2.00 starting price.  Too cheap - way too cheap!  A nice improvement to the spotty Uncirculated one in my collection!

Oregon, Albany.  1959 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar, unofficially silver plated.  Hat and point variety, if anybody cares.  Start 99¢ plus $3.95 shipping.  Sold raw by the same seller as all the encapsulated Oregon Centennial tokens that follow.  Start 99¢ plus $3.95 shipping.  There were 5 bids by 4 bidders and it sold for $3.75.

Oregon, Bend.  1959 Oregon Statehood Centennial Half Dollar.  Graded MS-65 and encapsulated by NGC.  I think they are close on this one, I’s call it MS-64.  Start 99¢ plus $3.95 shipping.  After 7 bids by 6 bidders it sold for $28.58.

 

 

3/27/19

Oregon, Grants Pass.  1959 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar.  Encapsulated by NGC and graded MS-65.  Wear on the caveman’s nose, shoulder and elbow.  Mint state means no wear, so I’d have to call it About Uncirculated.  Start 99¢ plus $3.95 shipping.  It sold for $28.50 plus $3.95.  Worth less than $5.00 outside of the holder.

 

 

3/27/19

Oregon, Redmond.  1959 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar.  Smoke variety.  Encapsulated by NGC and graded a lofty MS-66. It was a nice problem-free token, but to me to get more than MS-65, it has to be spectacular in some way.  It wasn’t - it was just the typical sharply struck as-issued mint state token.   I’d call it MS-65.  The start was 99¢ plus $3.95.  There were 18 bids by 8 bidders, and this choice token sold for $46.00.  

 

 

3/27/19

Oregon, Redmond.  1959 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar.  The scarcer No Smoke variety.  Encapsulated by NGC and graded a lofty MS-66.  Not as nice as the preceding listing.  I’d call it MS-64.  The start was 99¢ plus $3.95.  There were 11 bids by 7 bidders, and this piece sold for $53.00.

 

 

3/27/19

Oregon, Roseburg.  1959 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar.  MS-66, according to NGC.  MS64 according to me, for whatever that is worth - I noted some contact marks and edge disturbances.  The start was 99¢ plus $3.95.  There were 9 bids by 6 bidders, and this piece sold for $46.00.  You shouldn’t have any problem finding one as nice as this, outside of the plastic holder, for well less than $10.00.

Confederation of Antarctica.  1976/2076 Good For 1/100 Ounce of Silver Copper Token.  One thousand of these fantasy tokens were issued, and they catalog for $3.50 - but since they do not commemorate anything, they probably will be dropped from the next listing.  The start was $2.99, but the killer was the $4.06 postage charge for this cent-sized token.  It was relisted in a series of 5 day listings until April 17 before the seller gave up and ended it unsold.

Cascadia.  2019 5 Dougies Pattern Coins, Silver and Aluminum.  Not previously listed, and probably not going to be because they do not seem to commemorate anything - but others issues from imaginary or proposed states within the U.S. (like some of the the Conch Republic tokens of Florida) have been listed, so who knows.  Cascadia is a proposed country or autonomous region composed of Oregon, Washington, British Columbia as well as parts of the states or provinces that border these regions on the east.  These proposed coins have what appears to be a pine tree on the obverse with the denomination 5 / D to the right and left.  The reverses are inscribed CASCADIA / SILVER / 2019.  The trial coins are crudely engraved and struck on aluminum and silver Franklin Mint tokens produced in the 1960’s, with much or the original design featuring antique cars still visible.  The seller, who produced the tokens, states that 12 silver and 3 aluminum examples were struck, and that the set they were offering, while quite primitively struck, were the best of the lot.  They also noted that 9 of the silver tokens were so poorly struck that they probably will be scrapped - leaving only the 3 finest pieces preserved.  They also noted that the remaining two sets might be offered as well, depending on how much interest there was in the set they were offering.  The start was a very low $5.00 and postage $3.25 additional.  Unfortunately, I was the only bidder, and I won them for the opening bid.  The other two sets have not been offered.  The seller noted that the dies had been retired and that no more pieces would be struck, however finer quality  dies would be produced for the regular issues.  I haven’t seen those either.
