3/1/20

Iowa, Emmetsburg.  1976 Irish Dollar.  The U. S. Centennial issue.  The starting bid was $2.00 plus $1.25 shipping.  After 3 bids by 2 bidders it sold for $3.13.

 

 

3/1/20

Minnesota.  1958 State Centennial Uniface “Dollar”struck in golden brass and holed for use on a keychain.  HK-517.  Extremely Fine.  This token had a $21.00 plus $5.00 start.  There were no bids, and on the 29th of the month the start was lowered to $18.90.  For the listing ending April 28, the seller tried a $17.01 start, but ended his listing when nobody bid.

 

 

 

3/1/20

Minnesota, Hawley.  1972 Centennial Half Dollar.  Golden brass version.  Start $10.00 plus a remarkable $5.05 shipping charge.  It is still available in May as a $15.00 with FREE shipping Buy It Now item.

 

 

 

3/1/20

Ohio, Portsmouth.  1965 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  Start $3.99 plus $3.25 for shipping.  Three bids were placed by two bidders and it sold for $6.49.

 

 

3/1/20

Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.  1926 U.S. Sesquicentennial Treasure Island Doubloon.  The most frequently encountered two-sided type in Extremely Fine condition.  Start was 99¢ plus $3.25 shipping.  After 4 bids by 3 bidders it sold for $10.65.

 

 

3/3/20

Kentucky, Bourbon County.  1961 175th Anniversary Half Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Sold to a single bidder for the $1.99 plus $4.05 starting bid.

 

 

3/3/20

Michigan, Marquette.  1949 Centennial Quarter.  Extremely Fine.  Sold to a single bidder for its $10.50 plus $2.00 starting bid.

 

 

3/3/20

Michigan, Onaway.  1949 50th Anniversary Quarter.  Typical weakly struckAU/ UNC, but this one spotty.  Sold to a single bidder for the $5.00 plus $1.00 start.

 

 

3/6/20

Kansas.  1961 Official Centennial Coin for Lyon County.  Start $6.00 plus $3.50 shipping. After 5 bids by 3 bidders, it sold for $10.38.

 

 

3/6/20

Kansas.  1961 Official Centennial Coin for Sheridan County.  Sold to a single bidder for the $1.99 plus $4.99 opening bid.

3/6/20

Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.  1926 U.S. Sesquicentennial Treasure Island Doubloon.  Uniface, solid version with Liberty Bell and skull and crossbones type in About Uncirculated condition.  The pin on the back had been removed. I was the only bidder for the $5.00 plus $4.20 opening bid. Many times scarcer than the two-sided Treasure Island Doubloon. 

 

 

3/7/20

California, Palm Springs.  1976 Palm Springs Dollar, antique brass version. $9.99 plus $3.50 shipping.  No bids, and listed for one more week at the same price - then ended without a bid.

 

 

3/7/20

Colorado, Breckenridge.  1965 U.L.L.R. Winter Carnival Not Good for 50¢ token. Mintage unknown, Catalog Value $12.50.  I was the only bidder for this scarce token at the $1.99 plus $2.00 opening bid.  If the seller had described the token properly, it would have probably sold for much more. Unfortunately (for him) he just called it “Medal #12”!

 

 

3/7/20

Hawaii.  2007 Princess Kaiulani Quarter Ounce Silver $5 Liberty Dollar with the raised details enhanced with gold plating.  Start $1,000.00 with FREE shipping.  Good luck to the seller because the Royal Hawaiian Mint is still selling these very scarce (and beautiful) coins for $335.00.  No bids, and the listing eventually closed “because there was an error in the listing”.

 

 

3/8/20

Hawaii, Honolulu. 1990 Royal Hawaiian Mint Trade Dollar.  Start $9.95 ($13.00 BIN), plus $5.00 shipping.  No bids.  Not relisted.

 

 

3/8/20

Hawaii, Maui.  1959 Statehood Dollar. Correct spelling of Oahu. Choice Uncirculated.  Start $1.99 plus $3.00 shipping.  After 7 bids by just 2 bidders it sold for $5.51.

 

 

3/8/20

Hawaii. 1991 Pearl Harbor 50th Anniversary Dollar.  The corrected silver version, in case with Certificate of Authenticity.  Start $40.00 ($55.00 BIN) plus $5.00 shipping.  After a month the start was lowered by a buck to $39.00, but the postage went up to $5.25.  A week later came a more significant price reduction…$4.00 lower, to $35.00.  Now, a full two months after the original listing it remains available for that opening bid, but currently the seller has added a MAKE OFFER option.

 

 

3/9/20

Arizona, Tucson.  1933 Wolfville Western Days Dollar.  Extremely Fine.  Start 99¢ with FREE shipping.  After 7 bids by 6 bidders it sold for $9.61.

 

 

3/9/20

Kansas.  1954 Official Centennial Coin inscribed ATCHISON on the inscription block.  Sold to a single bidder, me, for the $9.99 plus $1.00 opening bid.  Cheap.

 

 

3/9/20

South Dakota, Sturgis.  1976 Centennial Quarter.  Sold to a single bidder for the $2.99 plus $3.50 opening bid.

 

 

3/10/20

Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.  1926 Treasure Island Doubloon.  Extremely Fine.  Sold to a single bidder for the $4.95 plus $1.00 opening bid.

 

 

3/11/20

Kansas, Neodesha.  1971 Centennial Coin. The more available “Coin” version, not the “Dollar” version - but still hard enough to find!  No one else wanted it, apparently, so I was able to win this item for the opening bid of $4.00 with FREE shipping!

 

 

3/11/20

Michigan, Onaway.  1949 50th Anniversary Quarter.  Uncirculated, apparently, but quite weakly struck in the center (as typically seen).  Sold to a single bidder for the $7.99 plus 99¢ opening bid.

 

 

3/12/20

Hawaii.  1883-1983 Centennial Dala. “Ring” of 3 die trials.  Start $1.99 plus $3.00 shipping.  There were 15 bids by 5 bidders and it sold for $28.00.

 

 

3/12/20

Michigan, Wyoming.  1962 Wyoming Days Festival Half Dollar.  About uncirculated.  Start $11.99 plus 89¢ shipping - which would go up to $2.99 if the token sold for more than $20.00.  That turned out not to be an issue because after 2 weeks the start dropped to $9.99. Then when no one bid at that level it was made a Buy It Now item for $14.99.  Still available at that cost in the middle of May.

 

 

3/12/20

Nevada.  Undated (Copyright 1975) Nevada Dollar.  Golden Brass version.  Sold to a single bidder for the $9.00 with FREE shipping start.

 

 

3/13/20

Illinois, Mt. Olive.  1965 Centennial Half Dollar.  Encapsulated and called MS-64 by NGC.  Start $17.99 plus a very robust $9.99 for shipping.  For the listing ending April 3 the start was lowered to $15.99 plus a more reasonable $4.59 shipping fee, and on the 24th it dropped to $14.99.  It remains available for that price a full two months after its original listing.

 

 

3/13/20

Kansas.  1961 Official Centennial Coin without a County or other location noted. Antiqued silver plate.  Start $19.99 with FREE shipping.  It lasted until the 24th when the listing was ended “because the item is no longer available”.

 

 

3/13/20

Missouri, Louisiana.  1968 Sesquicentennial “Good In Trade” Token.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.50, but with this being the first time I have seen this one on Ebay since these listings started, apparently scarcer than I thought, and due for a price increase - probably to $6.50 or so.  These circulated as half dollars, but the denomination was not stated to avoid problems with the Treasury Department. This example was very nearly uncirculated, still mostly bright.  It started at $5.00 plus $1.50, attracted 4 bids by 2 bidders, and sold for $9.38.

 

 

3/15/20

Alaska, Haines.  1981 Chamber of Commerce Dollar.  Start $10.00.  Postage a very healthy $6.85.  Listed without bids until April 19, then ended unsold by the seller.

 

 

3/15/20

Colorado, Durango.  1981 (1982) Narrow Gauge Train Centennial Dollar.  Start 99¢ plus 99¢ more for postage.  After 4 bids by two bidders it sold for $2.07.

 

 

3/15/20

Colorado, Longmont.  Undated (1950’s to 1960’s) Lions Club 4th of July Carnival Dime.  One of those issues I am not sure I will list or not, but perhaps one that should be included if it turns out to be from a community, not private, celebration.  Not currently listed.  Unknown mintage, but not especially scarce.  This one, in Extremely Fine condition, available for a $2.00 plus $1.00 opening bid.  No bids the first week, and ended unsold after a second week-long listing “because the item is no longer available”. 

 

 

3/15/20

Hawaii, Maui.  Set of Maui Dollars 2007-2011 (Series Four) in folder, which is numbered 0265.  Start 29.99 plus $5.65 shipping.  On the third of May the start dropped to $24.99, but then when nobody bid for two weeks, the seller ended his listing unsold.

 

 

3/15/20

Kentucky, Ashland.  1954 Centennial Half Dollar.  Extremely Fine, heavily cleaned.  Start $3.88 plus $2.50 shipping.  No bids.  Not relisted.

 

 

3/15/20

Montana.  1964 Territorial Centennial $50.00 “Gold” Slug.  NGC MS-67, said to be the finest graded  - “Top Pop”.  Start $65.00 with FREE shipping.  Nobody bid, so the next week the seller put it back on for $465.00, still with that FREE shipping, thank goodness!  Strangely, after - literally - 10 minutes, the item was ended “because the item is no longer available”!  Hmmm.

 

 

3/15/20

North Dakota, Bowbells.  1981 Damond Jubilee Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $3.99 plus $3.00 start.

 

 

3/16/20

California, (Redding).  Undated (Copyright 1974) $5.00, $10.00 and $25.00 Gift Coins from C. M. Dicker, Inc. of Redding.  These use the obverse of the (1974) California Dollar combined with a new reverse.  Similar to the (San Diego) Walker Scott California Dollar issues, which I have previously mentioned.  The start was $7.99 plus $4.50 shipping, and after 7 bids by 4 bidders I won the set for $34.00.  A second set was offered by the same seller ending on April 20 that had the same start sold for $46.00 after 4 bids by 2 bidders.  Guess I got a bargain!  We’ll see as another set is out there right now, now pushed all the way up to an $8.00 start, that will end on May 18.  Currently a single bidder has it for the opening bid.  Three days to go!  I’ll bid $15.88 as duplicates - It’s OK to publish that because these listings are not posted until two months after the postings close so I can monitor the items that do not sell the first time around.

 

 

3/18/28

Iowa, LeMars.  1969 Centennial Half Dollar, First Issue.  Mintage 200.  Catalog $10.00.  Sold to a single bidder for the $3.00 plus $1.25 start.  A bargain that I missed because I didn’t notice that it was the First Edition variety!

 

 

3/18/20

Iowa, Lewis. (1954) Centennial Nickle.  Extremely fine, as usual.  Surprisingly, there were no bids at its $1.99 plus $4.00 starting bid, and it was not relisted.

 

 

3/18/20

Montana.  1964 Diamond Jubilee of Statehood Dollar, struck in silver.  There were no bids at its $9.99 plus $3.50 start, so the seller raised his start to $14.99 plus $3.50.  That didn’t work either, so the seller ended his listing unsold.

 

 

3/18/20

Montana, Hardin.  1970 (1971) Hardin Dollar.  Extremely Fine.  Start 99¢ plus $3.50 shipping.  It sold to the second bidder for $1.04.  

 

 

3/18/20

Oregon, Astoria.  1966 Astoria Bridge Dedication Half Dollar.  Spotty Uncirculated.  Sold to a single bidder for the opening bid of 99¢ plus $4.59 postage. 

 

 

3/19/20

Oregon, Baker.  1982 Baker County Miners Jubilee Private Issue Good For 1 Free Drink Token From My Place.  About Uncirculated.  Previously unlisted. Unknown mintage.  I was able to buy this one for the opening bid of $9.99 plus $3.90 for postage.  First of these I’ve seen, seems to be listable.

 

 

3/20/20

Montana, Glasgow.  1961 125th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Very slightly circulated.  Sold to a single bidder for the $5.00 plus $1.50 opening bid.

 

 

3/21/20

Kansas, Frankfort.  1967 (50¢) Good In Trade Centennial Token.  Sold to a single bidder (who placed an additional bid, just in case) for the opening of $5.00 plus $3.50 shipping.

 

 

3/22/20

California, Universal Studios.  “1878” Universal Studios Dollar, struck in antiqued brass.  Start 69¢ plus 69¢ shipping.  After 12 bids by 6 bidders it sold for $12.38. 

 

 

3/22/20

Hawaii, Maui.  2014 Maui Trade (2) Dollars.  It looked like the silver version to me, so I bid and won it as the only bidder for the $4.97 plus $3.90 opening bid.  It turned out to be the regular nickel-silver version, but in proof condition from a boxed set. 

 

 

3/22/20

Illinois, Chicago.  1892 Columbian Exposition Irish Village $1000.  NGC MS-62. according to the seller the finest graded specimen.  It was better than the one in my collection so I bid, but lost out.  The start was $24.99 plus $3.20 shipping. After 12 bids by 9 bidders, it sold for $237.06.

 

 

3/22/20

Kansas, Coffeyville.  1968 Centennial Dollars, lot of 3.  Sold to a single bidder for the $20.00 plus $5.00 opening bid.

 

 

3/22/20

Michigan, Fowlerville.  1961 125th Anniversary Half Dollar.  I won this one for the 99¢ plus $1.00 shipping fee opening bid.

 

 

3/22/20

Montana.  1964 Montana Territory Centennial $50 Slug Replica, un-numbered version.  MS-67 according to NGC, and reportedly the finest graded specimen.  Start $465.00 with FREE shipping.  Ten minutes later the seller ended his listing “because the item is no longer available” - just like he did back on March 15.  Hmmm.  I wonder what is going on here?

 

 

3/22/20

Washington, Goldendale.  1972 Centennial Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Start $19.95 plus $1.05 shipping.  Listed until May 5 when after being offered for a week for a reduced start of $17.95, it was ended, unsold, by the seller.`

 

 

3/23/20

California, San Jose.  1961 “In Trade” Civil War Centennial Private Issue Store Token From the Rumpus Room. Sold to a single bidder for the $6.00 with FREE shipping starting bid.

3/24/20

Missouri, Lee’s Summit.  1965 Centennial Half Dollar, Train Variety.   Start $5.00.  Postage $1.50.  For the listing ending April 23 the seller raised the price to $6.00 and made it a Buy It Now item.  Nobody bought it and the seller ended the listing unsold.

 

 

3/24/20

Oregon, Albany.  1948 Centennial Half Dollar.  Extremely Fine condition.  Sold to a single bidder for the starting bid of $1.75 plus 50¢ shipping.

 

 

3/25/20

Illinois, Edwards County.  1964 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  Start $1.99, with postage $1.00 more.  Listed until May 16, and then ended by the seller without a single bid.

 

 

3/25/20

Kansas.  1961 Official Centennial Coin for Coffeyville.  Start $30.00 with FREE shipping.  A scarce issue, but I don’t think it is worth this much - even though it has been 5 years since I have seen one on Ebay.  The two I have documented in these listings both sold for just less than $10.00 each.  The seller was persistent and is still offering the token at varying prices - first $27.00, then $28.00, $28.50, $29.00, $29.50, $28.50, $30.00, $31.50, and currently $33.00 - two months after its original listing.***********Surprise, Surprise!  By chance I checked back on this and after being listed for $33.00, the seller tried $25.00, and it sold to a single bidder on June 1!

 

 

3/25/20

Oregon, Baker City.  1993 Sesquicentennial Baker County Bucks ($2.00).  Start just 99¢, but the postage was a whopping $4.59.  No bids, not relisted.

3/26/20

California, San Buenaventura.  1966 Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $1.99 with FREE shipping.  A good bargain for the single bidder who won it.

 

 

3/26/20

Hawaii, Maui.  1992 Maui Dollar.  Start 99¢ plus a very high $3.99 shipping charge.  Still, the item sold: three bids were placed by 2 bidders and it brought $2.25.

 

 

3/27/20

Missouri, Salisbury.  1967 Centennial Half Dollar in About Uncirculated condition.  Unknown mintage.  Not listed in the previous edition of my catalog.  Quite scarce, and I was amazed I was the only bidder, winning this treasure for the opening bid of $5.00 plus $1.50 postage!

 

 

3/27/20

Montana, Libby.  1967 Diamond Jubilee Official Souvenir Dollar.  A choice example, almost nice enough to make me think it might be the much scarcer silver version, but not enough for me to make the $9.00 with FREE shipping starting bid gamble.  No bids, and after another week without bids the seller ended the listing unsold.

 

 

3/28/20

Colorado, Rocky Ford.  1949 72nd Annual Watermelon Day Nickel.   Watermelon-shaped. and labelled WOODEN NICKEL. but printed on canvas.  If it was on wood, I wouldn't list it, but since it is on canvas, I have been listing it - much like the Greenville, South Carolina Cotton Nickels.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $10.00.  This one sold to a single bidder for the $9.99 plus $2.60 starting bid.

 

 

3/28/20

Michigan, Lansing.  1976 U.S. Bicentennial 3¢, private issue of Rice V. Rider.  About Uncirculated.  Offered for $7.49 plus $3.95 shipping.  No bids so the seller relisted it as a Buy It Now item for $9.95 with FREE shipping.  Two months later it remains available, currently on sale for 15% off ($8.46).

 

 

3/28/20

Montana, Hardin.  1971 Custer/Crazy Horse Hardin Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $3.99 plus $2.66 opening bid.

 

 

3/28/20

Montana, Sidney.  1973 Mon-Dak Old Fashioned Fourth Mon-Dak Dollar, numbered 2071.  A very odd item because, if the pictures can be trusted (I don’t think they can), the front is gilt brass and the back is antiqued brass.  Not only that, but the reverse is dated 1971, a year that normally comes in antiqued brass. Probably the seller mixed his pictures up - but then he did not offer a 1971 coin.  Start $3.99 plus $2.66 shipping.   I’ve been watching this for nearly two months, and it is still available for the same price as a Buy It Now item.  I think I will just buy it and see which variety it is.  Still a pretty good deal.  Got it!!   I will let you know exactly what it was when it arrives.  Well, it arrived, and as I suspected it was the standard 1973 issue with a golden brass finish on both sides.

 

 

3/28/20

North Dakota.  1971 North Dakota Dollar in Nickel Silver.  Sold to a single bidder for the $3.99 plus $2.66 opening bid.  Edge inscription not described, so I will assume it is the standard numbered and lettered edge.

 

 

3/28/20

Texas, Flatonia.  Undated Silver Plastic 25¢ Token, said by the seller to be from the “Czhilispiel Festival”.  I don’t know, all it says on the front is FLATONIA with the name and location of the town on a map of Texas.  The reverse simply has the denomination.  A google search confirms that Flatonia does indeed have an annual Czhilispiel Festival which started in in their Centennial year of 1973, and continues on to today. The celebration celebrates their Czech heritage with various events highlighted by a chili cook-off, the Czhilispiel.  The first of these I have seen.  The start was 99¢ plus $1.50 postage.  I won it as the second bidder at $4.25.

 

 

3/29/20

Alaska, Fairbanks.  1959 Statehood Year Souvenir Dollar.  Start 99¢ plus $1.50 shipping.   There were 4 bids by 3 bidders and it sold for  $1.79.

 

 

3/29/20

Ariona, Tucson.  1933 Wolfville Western Days Dollar, Very Fine.  Sold to a single bidder for the $8.27 plus $5.00 opening bid.

 

 

3/29/20

Iowa, Clare.  1974 Irish Dollar.  Choice Uncirculated.  Start $2.95 plus $3.50 shipping.  No bids, and after two weeks the start was reduced to 99¢.  It took a few weeks, but the item finally sold on May 7 for the opening bid.

 

 

3/29/20

Montana.  1964 Territorial Centennial Fifty Dollar Slug Replica graded MS-64 and encapsulated by NGC.  Start $9.99 plus $3.50.  There were 3 bids by two bidders and it sold for $13.16.  NGC’s label called it a So-Called Dollar.

 

 

 

3/29/20

Wyoming, Laramie.  1968 Centennial Half Buck.  About Uncirculated. Two fence rails behind horse, last line of reverse inscription not recut.  Start $1.95 plus $3.40 shipping.  After 6 bids by 3 bidders the item sold for $3.27.

 

 

3/30/20

Iowa, Belle Plaine.  1962 Centennial Half Dollar in a lightly corroded Extremely Fine condition.  There were no bids at its $4.99 with FREE shipping start, and the seller ended his listing unsold after just a single weekly listing.

 

 

3/30/27

Missouri, Palmyra.  1969 Sesquicentennial Good in Trade (50¢) token.  Sold to a single bidder for the $5.95 plus $3.80 opening bid.  The bidder placed a second bid for this coin, just in case he was outbid, but it was not used.

 

 

3/30/20

South Dakota.  1972, 1974 and 1979 South Dakota Dollars.  The three pieces had a $9.99 plus $4.70 starting bid and sold to a single bidder for the opening price.

 

 

3/31/20

Pennsylvania, Lower Paxton Township.  1967 Bicentennial Half Dollar.  Choice Uncirculated.  Sold to a single bidder who placed three bids, but he won it for the opening price of 99¢ plus $3.50 postage.
