Hawaii, Maui.  2002 to 2011 Maui Trade Dollars (Series 3 and Series 4) in the 5 coin “Series” folders as issued by the Maui Trade Dollar Association.  Sold to a single bidder for the $80.00 with FREE shipping opening bid.

 

 

10/2/18

Alaska, Whittier.  1967 Alaska Purchase Centennial Private issue $1.00 token for the Sportsman’s Inn.  This one numbered 669, but the seller uses stock photos and states that “The number on your token may be different from that shown in the picture.”  Sold to a single bidder for the opening bid of $6.00 plus $3.50 shipping.

 

 

10/2/18

Alaska, Whittier.  1969 Whittier Birthdate Private issue One Jolt token for the Sportsman’s Inn.  Sold for $8.51 after a $6.00 plus $3.50 start and 4 bids by two bidders.

10/3/18

Michigan, Manistee.  1950 Manistee Sports Festival Quarter.  Looks Brilliant Uncirculated, but probably isn’t.  Opening Bid $8.50 with FREE shipping.  After 3 more weeks it was made a BIN item at a lower $6.75 price.  It remains available today, December 1, at the same price.  I think I will buy it.  If it is as nice as it looks, it will improve the normal uncirculated one in my collection.  I just bought it.  I will report here if it was really a choice one, or just polished.  When it arrived I was a bit disappointed because the seller’s image had been altered - the color had been brightened, and a defect on the obverse had been removed.  If I didn’t think it was still a bargain I would have complained, but for now I will just have to remember to be suspicious of future listings by this seller.  I would probably look a bit fussy if I complained too, because Ebay is now telling people who look at this sold listing that another one can be had from a different seller for $38.50 with FREE shipping.  That one is a little worn and has some green corrosion on both sides.

 

 

10/3/18

Ohio, Mason.  1965 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar - the scarcer variety with A pointing directly at the E.  Start 99¢ plus a buck for postage.  I won it as the second bidder for $1.25.

10/10/18

10/11/18

Ohio, Shelby.  1934 Centennial Dime.  I won this nice uncirculated piece for the opening bid of $4.99 plus $2.66.  Cheapo, cheapo, cheapo.  I can’t believe no one else wanted this one!

 

 

10/12/18

Illinois, Mount Prospect.  1967 Golden Anniversary Commemorative Coin.  Bidding was set to start at $7.50 plus $3.15 shipping, but no one bid.  Still available at the same start today, with the current listing set to end on January 2. 

 

 

10/12/18

10/12/18

Maine.  1964 Ski Maine Sitzmark.  About Uncirculated.  Sold to a single bidder for the opening bid of $4.50 plus $1.50.  After this one sold the seller put another one up for sale, same condition, but now for $6.50 plus $1.50.  Still out there in the middle of December.

 

 

10/13/18

Kansas, Leavenworth.  1970 Buffalo Bill Cody Days Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $3.00 plus $3.50 opening bid.  Ebay suggests - since this one is no longer available - another that can be had for $9.00 plus $2.66, Buy It Now.

 

 

10/13/18

Kansas, Leavenworth.  1979 Buffalo Bill Cody Days Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $3.00 plus $3.50 opening bid. A good deal, especially since it appears the same seller that won the 1970 Buffalo Bill Cody Days Dollar above won this one too - and saved on the postage.

 

 

10/14/18

California, Turlock.  1976 U. S. Bicentennial Half Dollar from the Central Valley Collectors & Hobby Faire.  Start $8.99 plus $4.00 shipping.  Listed every week at the same start until December 7 when the seller finally gave up and ended his listing unsold.

 

 

10/14/18

10/15/18

Montana, Miles City. 1984 Centennial $5.00. Private issue for the Range Riders Bar. About Uncirculated, neatly holed at 12:00.  I was the only bidder at the $8.00 plus $3.25 opening bid.  Quite scarce.

 

 

10/15/18

(North Carolina, Holden Beach).  (2008) Sand Dollar.  An elongated coin (usually a cent) that simply says  1 / SAND / (image of a sand dollar) / DOLLAR.  Initials of the designer & issuer G W E  hidden in the beaded border at the bottom.  Issued for the 2008 Festival By the Sea Days.  I was the only bidder at the $1.50 plus 85¢ opening bid.  Ebay seller estatecoins was issuer.  The seller is still selling them - now starting bids at 99¢ plus 75¢ or you can have them for $1.50 BIN.

 

 

10/15/18

Hawaii, Maui.  2006 Maui Trade Dollar.  Start $20.00 plus $3.50 shipping. The seller described it as a silver example, but it was clear from the photos that it was the standard nickel silver version.  Looks like everyone else agreed with my assessment as well, because after being listed for 6 consecutive weeks, the item was ended unsold on November 25. *** As I continue typing the October issues up in December, I note that this piece did come back almost immediately as a new listing.  Still described as silver, the start has been $15.00 + $3.50 for five weeks now.  the current listing is set to end on December 27.

 

 

10/16/18

Minnesota.  1958 Uniface Centennial “Half Dollar” as seen on the obverse of several 1958 Minnesota municipals.  Very choice uncirculated.  Golden brass version.  Sold for the BIN price of $74.95 with FREE shipping.  A very pretty example of a scarce municipal which is also collected by So Called Dollar collectors (HK-517).

 

 

10/16/18

Montana, Billings.  1968 Midland Empire State Fair and Rodeo Dollar.  Nickel Silver, Prooflike, in Franklin Mint display easel. Start $9.00 with FREE shipping.  Listed until December 10 when the item was ended unsold.

10/17/18

Alaska, Matanuska Valley.  1963-1965 30th Anniversary Dollar.  Start 99¢ plus $2.00 shipping.  After 9 bids by 5 bidders this token sold for $10.05.

 

 

10/17/18

Iowa, Cresco.  1966 Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $5.29 with FREE shipping.  No bids.  It continued at the same start until November 21 when the seller lowered the start to $4.99.  When no one bid at that level, the item was ended unsold.

 

 

10/17/18

Maine, Hallowell.  1962 Bicentennial Half Dollar.  Offered for $5.29 with FREE shipping.  No bids.  On November 25 the start was lowered to $4.98, still with FREE shipping, but that did not do the trick right away - but it helped because a week later it did sell to a single bidder.

 

 

10/17/18

Nebraska, Gothenburg.  1960 Pony Express Centennial Half Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Sold to a single bidder for the $3.99 plus $1.01 starting bid.

 

 

10/17/18

Ohio, Miamisburg.  1968 150th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Start was $5.29 with FREE shipping.  When no one bid by November 11, the seller made his token a Buy It Now item at a slightly higher price - $5.89 - and it remains available today, two months after its first appearance.  The current listing ends on December 19.

 

 

10/17/18

Wyoming, Casper.  1981 Exchange Club Casper Dollar.  Start $3.99 plus $1.01 shipping.   I bid $4.88 for this nice item, but someone else outbid me and won it for 25¢ more - $5.13.

 

 

10/18/18

Colorado, Fort Morgan.  1959 75th Anniversary/Rush to the Rockies Centennial Half Dollar.  Incorrectly called a So-Called Dollar, HK-544 in the title and description.  Start $50.00 with FREE shipping.  Although this piece does share one side with HK-544, the reverse has the Fort Morgan redemption information instead of being blank as is the So-Called Dollar.  No bids, but there would have been if it had really been HK-544! Since it did not sell, the seller decided to raise the price to $75.00 and make it a BIN item.  It remains available for $75.00, and the most recent listing, ending on January 16, has a MAKE OFFER option.  The seller, a long time coin dealer with a store in Colorado ought to know the difference.  I have to assume he is hoping to find someone who doesn’t know the difference between this MTC and the SCD!

 

 

10/18/18

Minnesota, Cass County.  1958 Minnesota Centennial Half Dollar.  XF/AU condition.  Start $5.50 plus $2.95 shipping.  No bids right away, but it eventually sold to a single bidder on November 6.

 

 

10/18/18

South Dakota.  1976 South Dakota Dollar. Regular issue with full edge inscription and number (number not stated).  Start 95¢ plus $3.25.  It sold for $4.25 after 6 bids by 3 bidders.

 

 

10/18/18

South Dakota, Sioux Falls.  1960/61 Dakota Territory Half Dollar.  Cooperating variety.  Sold to a single bidder for the $2.50 plus $3.50 opening bid.  Since this sold, Ebay is suggesting 5 others which range in cost from $10.50 to $15.45.

 

 

10/19/18

Hawaii, Honolulu.  1973 Honolulu Dollar in silver.  Part of a lot of 5 Hawaii Dollars which also included a 1977 Kona Dollar and 3 undated Dollars from Hilo, Kauai and Honolulu.  The seller did not mention that the 1973 Honolulu was silver, but anyone familiar with these issues would recognize it as such.  The start was $2.99 plus $4.25 shipping.  There were 4 bids by 4 different bidders and I won the lot for $15.29.

 

 

10/19/18

Hawaii, Kona Coast.  1982 Kona Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for its 99¢ plus $2.90 start.

 

 

10/19/18

Idaho, Idaho Springs.  Undated Henry Stampede Dime.  About Uncirculated.  Start $1.99 plus $2.75 shipping.  After 5 bids by 3 bidders it sold for $8.00.  Ebay is offering up another one, a bit better - uncirculated or really close - for $20.00 plus $3.50 Buy It Now.

 

 

10/20/18

Hawaii.  1994 set of proof Royal Hawaiian Silver King Kalakaua Hawaii Dala, Queen Liliuokalani Aloha Dala, and Princess Kaiulani Princess Dala which has been listed for some time now.  Housed in a nice wooden case with each coin in its own air tight capsule.  Includes 3 Certificates of Authenticity, each numbered 1106.   A very pretty set, but apparently priced too high because it remains available for the BIN price of $249.00 plus $4.99 shipping.  

 

 

10/20/18

Hawaii.  2007 King Kamehameha $20 Liberty Dollar.  This one has been listed for a while, and the price has fallen several times.  Currently available BIN for $129.11 ($180 Australian) plus $22.95 (U.S.) shipping.  This item is getting to a level it should sell at - an Australian buyer would save considerably if it were delivered within the country.

 

 

10/21/18

Florida, Palm Beach.  1976/77 Kiwanas Club Sand Dollar in nickel-silver.  Start 99¢ with FREE shipping. There were just 4 bids, each from a different bidder, and the lot sold for $3.34.  Cheap!

 

 

10/21/18

Maine.  1964 One Sitzmark Ski Maine token.  The start was 95¢ plus $3.25, but after 10 bids by 3 bidders, it sold for $8.00.

 

 

10/21/18

New York, Frankfort.  1963 Centennial Half Dollar.  Normally found in golden brass, the image of this one made it look like it just might have been silver or nickel silver.  It was cheap, just a 99¢ start, so I bid and won it as the second bidder for $1.75 plus $2.69 postage.  It turned out to be the standard golden brass version - I’m glad it did not cost me more to find out!

 

 

10/21/18

Pennsylvania, Chambersburg.  1962 Civil War Centennial Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $4.95 plus $1.95 start.  Ebay has found another for the disappointed bidders who missed out on this one - available for a BIN price of $7.00 plus $3.50 shipping.

 

 

10/22/18

Arizona, Willcox.  Set of 7 Willcox Rex Allen Days medals and tokens, 1970 to 1976. The  1973, 1974, and 1975 tokens were inscribed COPPER DOLLAR - the other years were not municipal.  All 3 years of the spendable issues come in either numbered or unnumbered versions, the numbered ones generally scarcer than the unnumbered ones.  The 1973 is relatively easy to find either way, but the 1974 and 1975 issues are much harder in either variety.  The start for the lot was $45.00 plus $6.70 postage.  I always pick up the 1974’s and ’75’s, when I can. I catalog the unnumbered ones for those years for $10.00 and the numbered ones for $12.50.  The seller did not note if these were numbered or not.  The price was a little steep for me (and apparently everyone else) but for the week ending November 26, the seller reduced his start to $35.00 plus $ 6.70, which was a bit better- but then for the week ending December 17, the seller reduced the postage to $4.00 and added a Make Offer option.  I tried a $30.00 offer and the seller countered with $32.00 and I accepted.  I will note here which edge varieties they were when they arrive…OK, they are here.  The 1973 was the more common numbered version, and the 1974 and 1975 were also the more common unnumbered versions.  Back in 1999 I cataloged the Numbered 1973 for $6.50 - which is dropping to $5.00 in the next edition, and the unnumbered 1974 and 1975 for $10.00 each.  Those will probably remain at the same level for the next catalog. I think it is interesting, though, that this is the first time a 1974 of either edge variety has appeared on Ebay since I started these listings six years ago. 

 

 

10/22/18

New York, Rye.  1960 300th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Starting bid $15.00 with FREE shipping.  Listed until December 3, when the seller ended his listing unsold, still at the same price.  People searching for one of these might do better bidding on one closing in 3 days, December 23, which has no bids yet at its $2.99 plus $2.80 starting bid.  Or there is an ugly spotted one you can get as a BIN item for $3.99 plus $2.50.

 

 

10/23/18

Alaska.  “1962 “ Alaska Boosters $20.00 coin set, struck in golden brass.  All 10 regular designs.  Uncirculated, but some are developing spots, though still housed in their original capsules.  The mintages are unknown, but I suspect they may be scarcer than the silver versions!  I cataloged them, back in 1999, for $10.00 each.  This set sold to a single bidder for the opening bid of $100.00 with FREE shipping.

 

 

10/23/18

Alaska, (Haines).  Undated Copper Tinna(h), apparently glued to a card probably noting it was made at the Alaska Indian Art facility in Port Chilkoot (Haines).  The card was seemingly white cardboard, although it was not pictured clearly. These come in several varieties, this apparently the unredeemable type. The start was $35.00 plus $4.00 shipping, and after 5 bids by 2 bidders it sold for $40.63.

 

 

10/23/18

Colorado, Loveland and Twin Peaks.  2014 $50 Lesher Dollar reproduction by Daniel Carr - this one stamped with ERIE GOLD / & SILVER, and serial numbered 010 (out of 20) in the inscription area.  Probably not destined to be listed as a MTC, but who knows! This one started below "face value", at $49.00 plus $6.00 shipping, and ended up selling for $63.98 after 3 bids by 2 bidders.

 

 

10/23/18

Hawaii.  “1883” King Kalakaua Akahi Dala Reproduction in gold anodized aluminum.  This example still housed in its Royal Hawaiian Mint display easel/mailer (which is a bit ragged) - but the coin is uncirculated.  Sold to a single bidder for the $5.00 plus $3.50 opening bid.  I see Ebay is offering a couple others in mint condition folders for $22.50 plus $3.75 and $28.00 plus $3.50 in their “more chances to get what you want” section

 

 

10/23/18

South Dakota.  1973 South Dakota Souvenir Dollar struck in copper and with the North Dakota Indian on the obverse.  About uncirculated, or probably a slightly tarnished uncirculated.  Hard to tell from the photos. The seller did not note the edge inscription - if any.  It sold to a single bidder at the $1.49 plus $3.25 opening bid.

 

 

10/24/18

Arizona, Tucson.  1933 Wolfville Western Days Dollar.  HK-689.  The typical about uncirculated specimen with partial luster and many heavy bag marks.  Perhaps cleaned.  Slabbed and graded MS-62 by NGC.  It is astounding what passes for uncirculated these days!  Start 99¢ with FREE shipping.  It sold for $24.50 after 12 bids by 7 bidders.

 

 

10/24/18

Ohio, Miamisburg.  1966 150th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Start $14.88 plus $2.95 shipping.  Still available two months later as I type this up - except it is a bit cheaper now because it is currently (until December 26) on a 11% off sale, and can be had for a starting bid of $13.24 plus 2.95.

 

 

10/25/18

Minnesota.  1958 Minnesota Uniface striking in Aluminum, holed.  Extremely fine condition otherwise.  HK-518.  The start was 99¢ plus $3.50 shipping.  There were 12 bids by 7 bidders and it ended up selling for $34.00.

 

 

10/25/18

Pennsylvania, Milton.  1967 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  Start $ 5.95 plus $3.45 shipping.  Listed with no bids until December 13 when the seller decided to end his listing unsold.

 

 

10/26/18

Hawaii.  2007 King Kamehameha $20 Liberty Dollar with Hawaiian Islands Counterstamp.  The seller state that there is a smudge on one side, but you sure cannot see it in the image.  Offered for $295.00 with FREE shipping.  No bids, and offered until late December when the seller ended the listing because “the item is no longer available”.

 

 

10/27/18

Alaska, Matanuska Valley.  1963-1965 30th Anniversary Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Start $14.50 with FREE shipping.  Still available two months later for the same price.  The current listing ends on December 29.

 

 

10/27/18

Alaska, North Pole.  1964-1965 Santa Claus House Dollar in Silver.  Start 95¢ plus $2.99 shipping.  After 9 bids by 5 bidders I took this one home for under melt at $7.00.  The melt value of the silver for this .625 oz. piece is just over $8.00.  Of course the postage was an additional $3.00, but still a bargain!

 

 

10/27/18

Montana, West Yellowstone.  1979 Yellowstone Park Dollar.  Bright and shiny, but probably polished.  Start $4.99 plus $3.50.  Listed for 3 additional weeks without any action, but during the week ending December 16, someone who really wanted it bid twice - winning it for the opening price.  

 

 

10/27/18

South Dakota, Sturgis.  2000 Black Hills Motor Classic Sturgis Dollar.  Start 1¢ with FREE shipping.  Whattadeal!  I had to try my luck so I bid $18.88 and was outbid.  After 13 bids by 9 bidders it sold for $22.50.

Iowa, Pella.  1979 Dutch Dollar.  The seller said it was perfect, and it clearly is an exceptional specimen.  Bright full original luster and a complete absence of bag marks.  Start $12.75 plus $3.50 shipping.  Still available two months later, now as a BIN item at the same price.

Iowa, Pella.  2005 Dutch Dollar.  Start $4.95 plus $2.66 shipping.  Listed until December 24 when the seller ended his listing unsold.

Michigan, Manistee.  1950 Manistee Sports Festival Quarter.  Cleaned Extremely Fine.  Start $5.50 with FREE shipping.  The second bidder won it for $6.00.

Michigan, Plainwell.  1969 Centennial Half Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $4.99 plus $4.20 shipping starting bid.

Minnesota.  Uniface Minnesota Centennial logo on a golden brass planchet with a large hole at top to be used as a key chain or pendant.  About Uncirculated.  This is also properly assigned a So-Called Dollar designation of HK-517.   Start $9.99 plus $2.80.  After 8 bids by 6 bidders it sold for $28.00.

Minnesota, Cass County.  1958 Minnesota Centennial Half Dollar.  Very choice About Uncirculated, the seller said Brilliant Uncirculated, but there was a touch of wear on the cheeks of both figures - still much nicer than most.  Marketed to So-Called Dollar collectors because it was noted that it had the obverse of So-Called Dollar HK-517.  Start $9.99 plus $2.40.  It sold for $19.38 after a $9.99 plus $2.40 start.  The second most common of the 1958 Minnesota Centennial MTCs, after the much more common piece from Virginia, Minnesota.

Minnesota, Chisholm.  1958 Minnesota Centennial Half Dollar.  Nice About Uncirculated, the seller said Brilliant Uncirculated, but there was a bit of wear and plating loss on the cheeks of both figures.  Marketed to So-Called Dollar collectors because it was noted that it had the obverse of So-Called Dollar HK-517.  Big deal.  It is not a So-Called Dollar because it has a denomination.  It is a MTC.  It is also not uncirculated because it has wear.  Many So-Called dollar collectors today prefer slabbed coins, and these days the major slabbers, PCGS and NGC, consider an uncirculated coin  (or token ) to be one that doesn’t have very much wear.   No way - an uncirculated coin has no wear.  The start was $9.99 plus $2.80.  After 3 bids by as many bidders it sold for $19.50.

Montana (the seller says), Boulder Valley City.  Undated Two Bits.  Very Fine.  I am not sure this is from Montana - I list it under “Unknown Location”.  Very fine.  It started off at $7.95 and brought $48.00 after 11 bids by 4 bidders.

Ohio, Ironton.  1938 Northwest Territory Centennial Iron Half Dollar.  About Uncirculated, polished.  Start $9.00 plus a lofty $6.50 for shipping.  That makes the cost for this item over $15.00.  No bids.  Listed at the same price until December 23 when it seems to have vanished from eBay.  They say the seller re-listed it again, but it does not seem to be there.  The seller probably re-named the item, and I don’t have the patience to go looking through all his stuff for this token.  It is unlikely to sell at this level anyway.

 

 

10/29/18

Illinois, Richland County.  1966 125th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Start $3.99 plus $3.00 shipping.  Too cheap!  I Won this as the second bidder for $5.50 plus $3.00 shipping.

 

 

10/29/18

Kansas, Wyandotte County.  1959 Centennial Half Dollar.  Start $3.99 plus $3.75 shipping.  That was not working, so for the week ending December 26, the seller raised the start to $5.99.  Even this awesome merchandising trick failed, so the seller ended his listing unsold.

 

 

10/29/18

Michigan, Mason County.  1955 Pierre Marquette Pageant Quarter.  AU/Unc - quite acceptable for this issue.  Start $5.00 plus $3.25 shipping.  No bids this or the following week, so the seller ended his listing unsold.  No problem though - Ebay has found another couple which are available for for $4.99 plus $3.00  (not quite so nice), or one for $9.99 with Free shipping which is an equal.

 

 

10/29/18

Pennsylvania, Indiana.  1966 Sesquicentennial Dollar in golden brass.  Start $1.75 plus $3.50 shipping.  Sold to a single bidder who placed two bids - the second one being unnecessary.

 

 

10/30/18

Nevada, Boulder City.  1978 Boulder Barter Buck.  Offered for $33.99 with FREE shipping.  The one noted sold in my 9/11 listing, apparently returned or not paid for.  At any rate it is still available, but the current listing, which ends on January 15, has fallen to a $31.38 Buy It Now start.  Anyone who would pay this amount for this common issue would be foolish, unless they thought another seller’s offering of one for $65.75 plus $3.75 shipping was a viable option.

 

 

10/30/18

Oregon, Arlington.  1959 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar.  No Smoke variety.  Sold to a single bidder for the $9.00 with FREE shipping start.  A bargain for this scarcer variety!

 

 

10/31/18

Michigan, Calhoun County.  1948 Centennial County Fair Quarter.  This piece was issued in an antique silver plate - but this one is in golden brass - the first I have heard of.  The seller noted that it was a “possibly unique or rare error”.  I thought I would have some competition for this one, but no - I was the only bidder for the $8.99 plus $1.50 starting bid!  A very nice addition to the catalog and my collection!
