MTCs on Ebay October 2020

10/1/20

Oregon, Joseph (Wallowa County).  1959 Oregon Centennial/Chief Joseph Days Half Dollar.  Silver Plated.  Graded MS-67 and encapsulated by NGC.  Sold to a single bidder for the $95.00 plus $3.25 start.

 

 

10/2/20

Alaska, Anchorage.  1967 Alaska Purchase Centennial Private Issue by North Poe Enterprises, numbered version - this one number 0198.  Uncirculated, but with stains on the obverse.  Start $2.25 plus $1.50 shipping. I won it for $2.75 as the second bidder.

 

 

10/3/20

Idaho, Bonner’s Ferry - Boundary County.  1963 Idaho Territorial Centennial Half Buck.  Start 99¢ plus $3.95 shipping.  Eight bids were placed by 2 bidders before it sold for $4.80.

 

 

10/3/20

Idaho, Ketchum - Sun Valley.  1960  Wagon Days Dollar.  Start $9.95 plus $3.85.  No bids, so the seller lowered the start to $7.95.  It only lasted until October 17, when the seller ended the listing unsold.

 

 

10/4/20

Arizona, Quartzite.  1975/1976 Pow Wow Dollar Mule.  I was the only bidder for the $3.50 plus 70¢ opening bid.

 

 

10/4/20

Colorado, Breckenridge.  1964 Winter Carnival Not Good For 50¢.  I was the only bidder for the $7.50 with FREE shipping start. 

 

 

 

10/4/20

Florida, Titusville.  1967 Centennial Half Dollar.  just a bit of rubbing removing the golden plating from the highest points.  Choice About Uncirculated.  Start $5.00 plus $3.50 shipping.  No bids, not relisted.  Later in the day another seller offered one of these in nice Uncirculated condition for  $7.25 with FREE shipping.  They don’t show up all that often on Ebay, and I was kind of kind of kicking myself for being so fussy about the condition and not bidding on the earlier one, so I bid on this one and won it for the opening bid.  A buck and a quarter cheaper, considering the postage, and in better condition.  Whattadeal!  Or maybe that old saying about a fool and his money would apply here - I don’t know.

 

 

10/4/20

Minnesota.  1959 Uniface Centennial Obverse in golden brass, the larger hole variety  in XF/AU condition.  Start $17.95 plus $3.95 shipping.  It did not sell until the following week when the seller lowered the start and postage costs to to $14.95 plus $1.95.  That did the trick and it sold to a single bidder. 

 

 

10/4/20

Montana, Red Lodge.  1936 Red Longe Rodeo Half Dollar.  Described as “old, used and worn” by the seller - I’d call it Extremely Fine, which is perfectly acceptable for this issue.  Start $8.89 plus $2.89, but after 8 bids by 4 bidders it sold for $38.00.  Montana merchant tokens are very popular right now, and it appears some of the Montana collectors are realizing how scarce many of the Montana MTC’s are, and the prices seem to be on the rise.

 

 

10/4/20

Oregon, Stayton.  1959 North Santiam Recreation Oregon Centennial Half Dollar.  An especially choice example that I thought would sell for considerably more.  It went to a single bidder for the $1.99 plus $2.00 starting bid.

 

 

10/4/20

Texas, (Childress).  1963 Highway 263 Souvenir Half Dollar.  Start $7.50  plus $3.50 shipping.  Finally ended, without a bid, on November 22.

 

 

10/5/20

Montana.  Undated Buffalo Dollar.  Offered by the seller as ”Gold Plated Silver”, but it appears to be the usual gold plated base metal issue which catalogs for $7.50.  The reverse shows the Montana State Seal which includes a banner inscribed ORO Y PLATA (gold and silver) from which the seller may have inferred that the coin is composed of gold and silver.  He also says that it weighs one ounce on his postal scale.  A postal scale measures avoirdupois ounces, which have a mass of 28.35 grams, which English-speaking countries use for virtually everything other than pharmaceuticals and precious metals.  However the troy ounce is equivalent to 31.1 grams, and is universally utilized to measure precious metals.  Postal scales are not made for precision measurement, and one of the base metal examples, at 25 or 26 grams probably would look like an ounce on such a scale.

 

This series of Buffalo Dollars (from Colorado, Montana and Wyoming) are normally encountered in a number of finishes plated over base metal, but occasionally in real silver.  The base metal and plated base metal ones usually weigh from 25.2 to 25.6 grams - just under 90% of an av. ounce, or only about 80% of a troy ounce.  The much less frequently encountered real silver versions weigh a full 31.1 grams, are noticeably thicker (especially when seen alongside a standard base metal example), and usually have the metal content stamped on the edge.

 

The currently offered specimen has been available for some time now at a Buy It Now price of $29.00 with FREE shipping, and is still available in late December.  If I thought it was gold plated sllver, I would have bought it long ago!

 

 

10/6/20

California, Los Angeles.  1969 200th Anniversary Leather cowhide Dollar, still attached to its original descriptive mailer.  I was the only bidder for this very scarce item at the $6.99 plus $4.50 opening bid.  

 

 

10/6/20

Colorado, Holyoke.  1963 Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar.  Start 99¢ plus $3.95.  After 3 bids by 2 people, it sold for $1.80.

 

 

10/6/20

Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.  1926 Sesquicentennial Treasure Island Doubloon.  Extremely Fine, spotty.  Offered for just $5.95 plus 79¢ shipping.  No bids.  It was then made a BIN item for $7.75 plus 79¢, but then ended “because the item is no longer available” later in the day.

 

 

10/7/20

Alabama, Montgomery.  1961 Civil War Centennial Half Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  Start $28.00 plus $7.00 more for shipping.  Still being listed for the same cost a full two months later.  The current end date is December 9.

 

 

10/7/20

10/7/20

Oregon, Albany.  1959 Oregon Centennial and Timber Carnival Half Dollar.  Uncirculated, or very close, but with some corrosion spots on both sides.  Sold to a single bidder (who placed a second, unnecessary, bid that was not used) for the 99¢ plus $4.00 start.

 

 

10/8/20

Arizona, Bisbee.  1913 Moose Bazaar Dollar.  Very Fine with a “D” counterstamp on the obverse.  Start just 99¢ plus $4.00 shipping.  There were 6 bids by 5 bidders and I took it home for only $8.00.

 

 

10/8/20

Hawaii.  1991 Total Solar Eclipse Dala.  Gold plated Fine Silver.  The variety with the two different reverses from the pair of regular issues - as noted in my posting of July 2.  That one turned out to actually be the much scarcer variety, just as advertised.  The seller still had one left, so I purchased it for the $42.00 with FREE shipping BIN price.  A good deal for a scarce token.  I think it is interesting to note that another seller was offering the more common standard version of this medal (usual front and back, and not gold plated) for $69.95 with FREE shipping.

 

 

10/9/20

New York, New York City.  1963 John and Jacqueline Kennedy 100¢ from the Louisiana Pavilion Coin Center at the World's Fair. The original silvery surfaces completely removed, leaving only the brass showing.  Sold to a single bidder for the $19.99 with FREE shipping start.

10/11/20

Kansas.  1941 400th Anniversary of “Discovery” by Coronado in Nickel Silver  Start $3.00 plus $3.25.  It sold to the second bidder for $3.25.  Interestingly, since this one was noted as sold by Ebay, another example, in the same AU/UNC condition (as usually found), was offered marked down from a $12.00 plus $3.49 BIN price to just $10.80 plus postage.

 

 

10/12/20

Kansas,Independence.  1970 Centennial Dollar.  Sold to a single bidder for the $2.,25 plus $1.50 opening bid. 

 

 

10/12/20

Alabama, Montgomery.  1961 Civil War Centennial Half Dollar in About Uncirculated condition.  Start $28.00 plus $7.00 more for shipping.  No bids, and still being offered for the same starting bid two months later.  Crazy - or maybe just greedy.

 

 

10/14/20

Illinois, Taylorville-Christian County.  1964 125th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Extremely Fine.  Start $10.00 with FREE shipping.  Still available two months later as a BIN item at the same price.

New York, Latham.  1960 Latham Fire Department Half Dollar.  Start $12.00 plus $1.00 shipping, or Buy It Now for $16.00.  For the listing ending October 28, the start was reduced to $10.00 and the BIN price eliminated.  Still available that  starting price until December 16.

 

 

10/14/20

Washington, Seattle.  1962 Century 21 Exposition Dollar.  An AU-50 token encapsulated and graded MS-64 by NGC.  Often NGC and I have differing opinions about what an Uncirculated (Mint State) coin is.  I guess I’m just old fashioned and still think that an Uncirculated coin should have no wear - this one had plenty over the raised surfaces on both sides!  Apparently the bidders agreed with me because after a 1¢ with FREE shipping start and eight bids by six bidders it sold for  only $8.68 - which is less than what someone paid to have it slabbed!

3046921-073

 

 

10/15/20

10/15/20

Alaska, Haines.  1981 (Centennial) Dollar, bell image.  Start $1.50 plus $3.09 shipping.  This one attracted 7 bids by 3 bidders (the final 3 by a very determined bidder were actually not necessary, and not used) and it sold for $3.13.

 

 

10/15/20

Alaska, Palmer.  1979 Midsummer Festival Palmer Dollar.  The start was $1.50 plus $3.09 shipping.  Seven bids by five bidders pushed the sale price up to $5.09.

10/15/20

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1972 London Bridge Dollar.  The scarce First Reissue variety, stilll with the die crack.  250 standard finish and 100 more Proof Like examples were struck.  I catalog them for $25.00 and $35.00 - but it is very difficult to tell the two finishes apart, especially from an Ebay image.  This one had a couple corrosion spots on the reverse, making me think that they may actually be nickel plated copper instead of solid nickel silver.  Sold to a single bidder for the starting $1.50 plus $3.09 shipping.  I’m sorry to say I missed the fact that this was the rare variety until I wrote it up just now.  Rats!

 

 

10/15/20

10/15/20

Illinois, Byron.  Undated Home Of The Nuclear Power Station Private issue Good For One Drink At The Cave Inn.  There is a nice view of the power plant and it looks like a regular MTC - but I don’t think it commemorates anything.  I looked at it and decided to bid on it (unsuccessfully) for my wannabe box.  Must be fairly scarce, because even in a low-end About Uncirculated condition and a $2.95 plus $3.95 start it attracted 7 bids by 3 bidders and sold for $14.38.

 

 

10/15/20

Nebraska, Nemaha County.  1967 State Centennial Dollar.  Start $1.50 plus $3.09 shipping.  The second bidder won it for $1.76.

10/15/20

Oregon, Albany.  1059 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar in antique silver plate.  This one with a somewhat spotty surface.  I am not sure if this is an official issue or not - I have been listing it all along at $7.50, but now I am not sure if it will make the cut as an official issue in the next edition.  The start was 69¢ with another 69¢ for postage.  After 16 bids by 4 bidders it sold for $8.50.

10/16/20

Pennsylvania, Burnham.  1961 Golden Jubilee Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.50 - but probably going up a buck or two as it appears to be scarcer than I thought, this one being the first of these I have seen on ebay since starting these lists eight years ago.  Start $5.00 ($7.00 BIN) plus $1.00 shipping.  By October 30 the BIN price had been eliminated, and the start lowered to $4.00.  It remains available at that start, with the current listing ending on  December 18.  The Buy It now option has also returned, now $5.50.  I just placed a bid - maybe I’ll win it!  Yep - I won it as the only bidder on December 18.

Oregon, Redmond.  1959 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar.  No smoke version.  Bright Gem Uncirculated - a really pretty coin.  Sold for the opening bid of 99¢ plus $3.60 shipping. When this token was listed I noticed it because it was so nice, but, unfortunately, I did not bother to look at the reverse.  Too bad, because there was a neat little counterstamp there reading NWCLIPS / .COM.  A neat “variety” I have not encountered before.  The site turns out to be for an auto parts dealer in Vancouver, Washington.  Not listable, but pretty neat!

New Mexico, Tatum.  1959 50th Anniversary Half Dollar.  I was the only one willing to pay the $19.99 plus $3.49 Buy It Now price.  Not too bad, I suppose, for this scarce issue.  Except that it did come to more than $25.00 with tax and shipping.  I hope I get a good trade for it someday.

South Dakota, Fort Yankton.  Undated Four Bits.  About Uncirculated.  Start $2.25 plus $1.50, but after just 3 bids by 3 different bidders it sold for $16.39 - which, I think, is a very strong price.  The seller was not so lucky when he listed another of them that ended on December 19: This one started a bit lower, at $2.00, still with the same postage charge.  It was a virtual twin to the original one.  So much so that I had to go back to see if it was the same example - but no, it was similarly worn and toned, but was not the same piece.  Nor did it bring the same price.  There apparently was no interest,  and it ended with no bids!  It did get relisted, however, along with two more examples, each as a single lot for $2.50 plus $1.50 each.  All three remain available on December 29.

Oklahoma, Newark and Kay County.  1968 75th Anniversary Dollar.  About Uncirculated.  The seller described it as “Brass”, but the 6 images confirmed that it was the usual nickel-silver version.  Sold to a single bidder for the $11.99 plus $4.12 starting bid.

 

 

10/30/20

Non-Local.  1976 U. S. Bicentennial Petro Dollar in Aluminum.  Start $10.00 plus $4.20 shipping - which seems a little aggressive to me for this novelty issue.  Listed with no bids until December 18, then cancelled by the seller.
