MTCs on Ebay September 2017

 

 

9/1/17

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  2004/2005 London Bridge Commemorative Coin.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously cataloged, but currently listed at $3.50 in the draft for the new edition.  This was for the standard antiqued nickel-silver version, which the seller called “Jess Silver”, and had a green chemical test mark on the reverse.  Sold to a single bidder at the $5.59 plus $2.90 opening bid.

 

 

9/1/17

California, Eastern Sierra (Inyo and Mono Counties).  1961 Centennial Souvenir Coin.  Mintage 16,000.  Catalog value $4.00.  It had a $1.50 start, plus $2.85 for shipping.  Sold to a single bidder.

 

 

9/1/17

Texas, Wilson County.  1960 Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 3,500.  Catalog value $6.50.  This choice About Uncirculated example was up for bid starting at $5.00 plus $1.50 postage.  Later with a $7.00 Buy It Now option.  There were no bids and it lasted until October 21 before the seller gave up and ended the listing.

 

 

9/2/17

Maryland, Westminster.  1964 Bicentennial Half Dollar.  The scarce antiqued brass version.  Mintage 500.  Catalog value $10.00.  This example was quite choice on the reverse, but really ugly on the obverse from chemical reaction to that plastic foam often used in inexpensive snap-lock coin cases used in the 1960’s.  It was a Buy It Now item that had been offered starting on August 8.  I don’t follow the BIN items because there are just too many of them, but this piece showed up on a search for another item.  The price was $5.95 plus $2.50, and I bought it.  I had hoped the obverse could be improved, but it was too far gone.

 

 

9/2/17

Pennsylvania, Boyertown.  1966 Centennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.50.  Despite a reasonable $1.99 plus $1.25 start, this item received no bids.  The seller then placed it in his store as a BIN item at the same price.  It is still available, with the current listing ending on November 22.

 

 

9/2/17

Washington, Ephrata.  1973 Freedom Festival Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.00.  The starting bid was $16.00 with FREE shipping.  There was no interest at this level, and after a month or so the item was made a BIN item at $14.00 with FREE shipping.  That apparently was too high as well, as it remains available at that price, with the current ending date set for November 19.

 

 

9/3/17

Hawaii.  1984 25 Years of Statehood Silver Dala.  Mintage 5,000.  Catalog value $17.50.  The start was $9.99 with FREE shipping.  There were 3 bids by 3 different bidders and it sold for $16.38.  Not a bad buy for someone on this Proof medal containing a full ounce of .999 silver!

 

 

9/3/17

New York, Staten Island.  1961 Tercentennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 10,000.  Catalog value $4.00.  This one had a very reasonable start of 99¢ and a postage fee of $1.95, but there were no bids.  The seller tried for one more week at the same start, then ended his listing when no one bid.

 

 

9/3/17

North Dakota.  1972 Souvenir Dollar, Private issue for Central Dakota Coin Club.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $5.00 in the draft for the new edition.  This one was not previously listed because it is a coin Club issue, but because of its similarity to the other North and South Dakota issues of the period, the collectors asked me to include it.  OK - I am generally in favor of inclusion.  Those who don’t like it don’t have to include it in their collection.  This one had a $5.00 start, but it had a $5.00 postage fee as well, and there were no bids.  On September 16 it went down to a $4.00 plus $5.00 start and that still didn’t work.  On September 30 it fell again, to $2.00 plus $5.00, with similar results.  For the final week, ending October 15, the seller tried $1.75 plus $5.00, still attracted no bids, and ended the listing unsold.  Could it be that $5.00 postage charge? 

 

 

9/3/17

Oklahoma, Fort Sill.  1969 Centennial Dollar struck in antiqued copper.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.00.  Bidding was set to start at $8.00 with $2.80 additional for postage.  There were no bids at first, but four weeks later someone bid and it sold for the opening price on September 30.

 

 

9/4/17

Hawaii.  1990 Aloha Dala with Diamond Head and a hula dancer. Struck in .999 Silver.  This variety not listed in the previous issue of the MTC catalog.  Unknown mintage. Sold as a Buy It Now item for the $40.00 with FREE shipping price.  The seller immediately replaced the sold one with another example at the same price.  That one is still available on November 1.

 

 

9/4/17

Illinois, Shawneetown.  1960 Centennial Half Dollar in Sterling Silver.  Mintage 235.  Catalog value $17.50.  I was the only bidder for this piece at its $24.99 plus $2.70 start.  Probably the most common of all the Silver Half Dollar municipals, but still only the second example to show up on Ebay since I started these listings 5 years ago.

 

 

9/5/17

Hawaii.  1996 King Kamehameha Mahalo Dala struck in Golden Bronze.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously cataloged.  Priced at $34.00 BIN with FREE shipping.  There were no bids, so after a month the seller raised his price a bit - to $99.00 with FREE shipping!  It is still available at that price.  The current listing ends on November 6.  Not a very attractive piece, Proof condition but with a cloudy finish showing fingerprints and a few spots.

 

 

9/5/17

Michigan, Calhoun County.  1948 Centennial and County Fair Quarter.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.50.  Sold to a single bidder at the $6.99 plus $1.30 opening bid.

 

 

9/5/17

New York, Unadilla.  1959 Frontier Days Two Bits.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $12.50.  The bidding on this About Uncirculated specimen started at 99¢ plus $2.50, but after 6 bids by 6 different bidders, it sold for $15.55.

 

 

9/5/17

Ohio, Mansfield.  1958 Sesquicentennial Half Dollars in Golden Brass and Aluminum - 3 each.  About Uncirculated.  The brass ones had a mintage of 10,000 pieces and catalogs for $5.00.  The aluminum ones had a 5,000 mintage and catalog for $7.50.  Sold to a single bidder at the $10.00 plus $3.00 start.  

 

 

9/5/17

South Carolina, Charleston.  1961 Confederate Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 30,000.  Catalog value $3.50.  This About Uncirculated example was up for bid starting at $16.00 with FREE shipping.  The next week it went up a bit to a $16.48 start until October 12 when it was made a Buy It Now item for $18.54, still with FREE shipping.  Then it came back as an auction item again, starting at $16.02.  Then $16.12 - and for the current listing, ending on November 6, the start was reduced to $15.88.

 

 

9/6/16

Oregon, Lake County.  1959 Lake County Buck on cowskin.  I won’t be including banknote-style pieces in the next edition, but I want to keep track of how much they are selling for in case I ever add them  This one started at $9.00 with FREE shipping, and ended up at $16.60 after 6 bids by 4 bidders.

 

 

9/7/17

Arizona, Tombstone.  “1879” Helldorado Days Souvenir Dollar struck in Aluminum.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $3.50.  This one - in choice About Uncirculated condition - started at 99¢ plus $2.99 and sold for $22.50 after 6 bids by 4 bidders.

 

 

9/7/17

Iowa, Oxford.  1969 Centennial Dollar.  Mintage 1,000.  Catalog value $7.50.  Sold to a single bidder at the opening price of $3.99 plus $1.75 shipping.  A bargain!

 

 

9/7/17

North Dakota.  1972 North Dakota Dollar.  Mintage 4,000.  Catalog value $3.50.  A seller with very high hopes has this one available at a $24.99 plus $2.75 start.  It came back the following week at $19.99 plus $2.75 and has remained at that start ever since.  The current listing ends on November 11.

 

 

9/8/17

Alabama, Tuskaloosa.  1969 150th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $10.00. This one had been offered as a BIN item since September 8, and apparently no one else wanted it, so I bought it when I came across it again on the 15th because it was just too cheap at a mere $5.39 plus 75¢!  

 

 

9/8/17

Alaska, Ketchikan.  (1967) 49’er Bar and Steak house Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $7.50.  No bids this week, or in the following two weeks it was offered.  Only in XF condition, which my be why it did not sell.

 

 

9/8/17

Iowa, Pella.  1972 Dutch Dollar struck in golden bronze.  Mintage 600.  Catalog value $25.00, but going down.  There were no bidders at the very reasonable $5.50 plus $1.85 start!

 

 

9/9/17

Alabama, Muscle Shoals.  1961 Civil War Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 10,000.  Catalog value $3.50.  Started at $5.00 with FREE shipping.  It sold for $7.50 after two bids by two bidders.

 

 

9/9/17

Massachusetts, Nantucket Island.  1970 2 Bits Merchant Token.  This piece went up for sale at 99¢ plus $2.50 but ended up selling for a remarkable $23.50 after 7 bids by 3 bidders.  Not a MTC, but often mistaken for one.  If it is not issued by a traditional Municipal Agency - such as a Chamber of Commerce - and MTC’s have to commemorate something.  This one clearly sponsored by the listed merchants apparently does not commemorate anything - except maybe whales. There is also a 4 bits piece of the same design. In my experience, both are rather common.

 

 

9/10/17

Alaska, Matanuska Valley.  1963-1965 30th Anniversary Dollar. Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $5.00.  An About Uncirculated specimen offered for a $2.99 plus $3.05 start.  It is still available at the same price, with the current listing ending on November 18.

 

 

9/10/17

Hawaii.  “1891” Queen Liliuokalani (Lilivocalania on the coin) Huth Medallion-style Akahi Dala struck in silver. Small 34 mm size, COPY stamped on the bottom of the reverse, and this one numbered 0829 on edge.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $25.00.  Offered for a start of $100.00 plus $8.35 shipping.  Listed another 6 weeks at the same price.  The listing finally sold to a single bidder on October 21. 

 

 

9/10/17

Michigan, Lansing.  1959 Centennial Half Dollar.  The scarcer “A points to P” variety.  Total mintage 80,000.  Catalog value $3.50.  The starting bid was set at 99¢, but the postage was up there at $4.00.  Listed until September 27 when the seller ended the listing unsold.

 

 

9/10/17

Montana, Plentywood.  1962 50th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Mintage 5,000.  Catalog value $4.50.  The start was just 99¢ with FREE shipping and it sold for $3.58 after 4 bids by 3 bidders.

 

 

9/11/17

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1995-1996 London Bridge Havasu Dollar.  Mintage 10,000.  Catalog value $3.00.  The start for this one was $15.00 plus $6.65 more for postage.  Listed at this price until September 27 when it sold to a single bidder. 

 

 

9/11/17

Hawaii, Kona.  1972 Kona Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $3.50.  Priced at a starting bid of $4.99 with FREE shipping, this one made it through a month as an auction item, and now nearly another month as a BIN item at the same price.  Still available in the seller’s store as of November 9 if anybody wants it!

 

 

9/11/17

Illinois, Chicago.  1892 Columbian Exposition Harvey Land Company $15.00 Discount Token on a Building Lot in nearby Harvey, Illinois.  Unknown  mintage.  Not previously cataloged by me.  This one was a nice About Uncirculated specimen that had a $24.95 start, and sold for $32.00 after 3 bids by as many different bidders.

 

 

9/11/17

Iowa, Creston.  1969 Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 10,000.  Catalog value $3.50.  This example, described as a So-Called Dollar, had a $5.49 plus $1.66 start and did not find a bidder.  So, after a month, the seller made it a Buy It Now item for $11.65 plus $1.66.  Then, for its final listing - ending October 21- the price was dropped to an opening bid of $5.00 plus 66¢ shipping.  Still no bids.  The item was ended unsold.

 

 

9/11/17

Iowa, Kensett.  1972 Centennial Coin.  Mintage 2,000.  Catalog value $5.00.  This one had a more-than-reasonable 99¢ plus 56¢ postage start.  It turned out to be a nice bargain for someone out there, selling for only $1.04 after just 2 bids. 

 

 

9/11/17

Montana, Butte.  2000 Butte and Southwest Montana’s Millennium Coin struck in .999 silver.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously listed.  Somehow this one had eluded me for the past 17 years!  This token had a $25.00 with FREE shipping start, and I won it as the third bidder at $31.00.   

 

 

9/11/17

Pennsylvania, Schaefferstown.  1963 Bicentennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.50. There were two of them in this lot, and the pair had a start of $14.99 plus $3.30 shipping.  I hate to admit it, but I placed my bid and won the lot for the opening bid.  Why?  Well, in the Ebay photos the two appeared to be different colors - one looking golden and the other sort of silver.  I don’t have a silver one, so I thought I’d take a chance.  When they arrived, it was clear that both were the standard golden bronze edition.  I don’t know why I keep taking these chances…once in a while it pays off, but not usually.  Just part of what makes the hobby fun!

 

 

9/12/17

California, Coastal Marin County.  Undated (2011) Strength in Community $3.00.  Too new to have been in the last edition, $4.00 in the draft.  Priced at a $7.00 plus 70¢ start, there were no bidders, and it was not relisted.  

 

 

9/12/17

Nevada, Los Vegas.  “1878” Las Vegas Dollar with the Convention Center Reverse Struck in 90% Fine Silver, according to the seller.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog Value $3.50 for Nickel-silver, not known (to me) in silver.  I wish it was a silver specimen, but to me it looked like the standard nickel-silver version, carried around in someone’s pocket long enough to be in just Very Fine condition.  That last silver-looking item was close enough for me to take a chance on, but this one was not.  The start was $1.00 with FREE shipping, and it ended up at $9.50 after 7 bids by 4 bidders.

 

 

9/13/17

Tennessee, Chattanooga.  1965 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 10,000.  Catalog value $3.50.  An attractive issue with a very nice 99¢ start, but a $4.00 shipping fee.  Listed two additional weeks at this price, still with no bids, before the seller gave up and ended the listing.

 

 

9/14/17

Arizona, Lake Havasu City.  1984 London Bridge Dollar.  Mintage 25,000.  Catalog value $3.00.  Some minor spotting on the obverse.  Offered for $12.50 with FREE shipping.  No Bids.  Not relisted.

 

 

9/14/17

Illinois, Elgin.  1976 U. S. Bicentennial Half Dollar.  Private issue by the Elgin Coin Club and the American Legion.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $3.00.  This example very close to Uncirculated.  Sold to a single bidder at the $9.99 plus $2.49 start.

 

 

9/14/17

Iowa, Delmar.  1971 Centennial Souvenir Coin.  Mintage 2,500.  Catalog value $6.00.  This one had a $9.99 plus $2.49 start and was listed by the seller until October 10 when the item was ended “because the item is no longer available”.

 

 

9/14/17

Iowa, Story City.  1972 Scandinavian Days Dollar struck in Nickel-Silver.  Unknown mintage. Catalog value $4.00.  This example with a $9.99 plus $2.49 start.  No bids, and listed as an auction or BIN item at the same price ever since.  Currently on sale for 10% ($1.00) off.  Whatta deal! 

 

 

9/14/17

Kansas.  1961 Official Centennial Coin for Sheridan County.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously listed individually.  Moderately scarce - these do not show up every day.  Sold to a single bidder at the $9.99 plus $2.49 opening bid.

 

 

9/14/17

Kansas, Hays (Hays City).  1967 Centennial Dollar Struck in Nickel-Silver.  Mintage 5,125.  Catalog value $3.30.  This specimen is slightly used About Uncirculated condition.  The start on this one was just too high - $9.99 plus $2.49 more for postage.  Most collectors will not pay more than $10.00 for one of the common MTCs, especially if it is not Uncirculated. That was the case here as well.  It lasted a month as a Bid item, and another month as a BIN item at the same price.  The current listing ends on November 12, and the item is currently on sale for 10% off.  

 

 

9/14/17

Michigan, Lake Linden - Schoolcraft Township.  1966 Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 1,500.  Catalog value $4.00.  This one was set with a $4.99 plus $2.75 start, but found no bids.  The start was lowered to  $3.99 at the end of the month, and stayed at that level for another month.  For the current listing ending on November 30, the start has been lowered again - this time to $2.99. 

 

 

9/15/17

Alabama, Mobile.  1961 250th Anniversary Half Dollar, Jean Baptiste Lemoyne Type.  Mintage 5,000.  Catalog value $3.00.  Sold to a single bidder at the $10.00 plus $3.00 starting bid.

 

 

9/15/17

Michigan, Ida.  1968 Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 10,000.  Catalog value $3.00.  The start for this one was $5.00 plus $3.00 more for postage.  It was listed for just 11 days without a bid before the seller ended the listing unsold.

 

 

9/15/17

Pennsylvania, Elizabethville.  1967 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage. Catalog value $5.00.  Started at $5.95 plus $2.65, this one has been available ever since, now as a BIN item, at the same price.  Still listed on November 17.  This token was uncirculated, but had a lot of little spots on both sides.

 

 

9/16/17

Colorado, Fort Morgan.  1959 State Centennial, Town 75th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Mintage 5,000.  Catalog value $5.00.  This nice example started at 99¢ with FREE shipping and received 7 bids from 4 bidders: $2.00, $10,01, 17.00, $22.50, $25.75, $27.50 and the winning bid of $28.50.  Impressive!  I suspect this piece caught the eye of So-Called Dollar collectors because it shares the obverse die with HK-544, the Rush to the Rockies “Dollar”.

 

 

9/16/17

Florida, Pinellas Park.  1965 50th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $3.00.  With a $9.99 plus $3.14 start this one was a hard sell.  It lasted, its final weeks as a BIN item at $18.00 plus $3.14, until October 17th before the seller ended the listing unsold.

 

 

9/16/17

North Dakota, Fessenden.  1968 75th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.00.  Available for an $11.50 with FREE shipping start.  It was available for the same amount - the final week as a BIN item - until November 6, when the listing was ended unsold by the consignor.

 

 

9/16/17

Wyoming, Lovell.  1970 Mustang Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.50.  An attractive issue, and a bit scarce, but this one only in About Uncirculated condition.  It turned out to be a bargain for someone, selling to a single bidder for the 99¢ with FREE shipping opening bid.

 

 

9/17/17

Arizona, Payson.  1977 (1978) Zane Gray Country Rotary Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $7.50.  Start was $1.50 plus 49¢ shipping, and it sold for $5.50 after just two bids.  A bargain price for a scarce token.  

 

 

9/17/17

Colorado, Breckenridge.  1967 U L L R Winter Carnival Not Good for 50¢ in Cash or Trade.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $7.50.  One of the easier years to find of these Breckenridge tokens.  The start was $2.00 and there were 10 bids by 3 bidders, this Extremely Fine piece finally ended up selling for $15.75. 

 

 

9/17/17

Florida, Greater Pompano Beach.  1958 Golden Jubilee Half Dollar. Mintage 5,000.  Catalog value $6.00.  Sold to a single bidder at the 99¢ plus $2.99 shipping fee opening bid.  Uncirculated, but a bit spotty - still a bargain!

 

 

9/17/17

Pennsylvania, Duncannon.  1965 Centennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $5.00.  This example was a Buy It Now item priced at only $1.50 plus $1.25 shipping.  I finally just bought the item because it was too cheap on November 11. 

 

 

9/18/17

Oregon, Sweet Home.  1959 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 5,000.  Catalog value $4.00.  This piece had an $8.95 plus $2.40 start. Looks like this token was affected by the $10.00 barrier - It seems like nobody wants to pay a combined price of $10.00 or more for a common municipal token.  They don't mind paying too much for a token, but most collectors seem to back off when the total cost of a common MTC exceeds $10.00.  This one is still available for the same price (now as a BIN item) with the current listing not ending until December 13 - that's almost 3 months.

 

 

9/19/17

Illinois, Morris (Grundy County).  1967 125th Anniversary Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $5.00.  Sold to a single bidder at the $4.99 plus $2.75 opening bid.

 

 

9/20/17

Iowa, Pomeroy.  1970 Centennial Half Dollar. Mintage 2,500.  Catalog value $6.00.  Sold to a single bidder at the $4.99 plus $2.75 opening bid.  Another one, every bit as nice came up for bid at the end of the month for just 99¢ plus $2.80 shipping that lasted two weeks before finding a bidder and selling for the opening price on October 13.

 

 

9/20/17

Montana, Sidney.  1986 75th Jubilee Souvenir Dollar Struck in Silver.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously cataloged in this metal.  The start was $24.00 plus $1.99 shipping, and it sold for $113.50 after 3 bids by 2 bidders. 

 

 

9/21/17

Ohio, Licking County.  1967 Land of Legend Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.50.  This one was About Uncirculated and offered for $3.00 plus $2.00 postage costs.  Apparently no one wanted this token as it remains available today (current listing ends November 23), and the starting bid has been reduced to $2.00.

 

 

9/21/17

Texas, Wilson County.  1960 Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 3,500.  Catalog value $6.50. This choice Aboutf Uncirculated piece was offered for $5.00 plus $1.50 shipping, or it could be had as a BIN item for $7.00 plus $1.50.  There were no bids at first, and it continued to be available at the same cost until November 14 when the listing was ended unsold. 

 

 

9/22/17 

California.  1974 California Dollar.  This is the Corbin Mint issue, which is rather common, but this one was still in its original protective and descriptive packaging - of course relatively few still have the packaging.  The mintage is unknown and the catalog value for the coin is $3.50.  This one sold for the opening bid of 99¢ plus $3.50 shipping.

 

 

9/22/17

California, La Grange.  1976 U. S. Bicentennial Good For One Drink Token.  Private issue from Levaggi’s Bar.  Mintage 1,000.  Catalog value $5.00.  This one had a $4.50 plus $3.05 start.  No bids at first, but after two more weeks it did sell for the opening bid. 

 

 

9/22/17

Michigan, Ida.  1968 Centennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 10,000.  Catalog value $3.00.  This was in great condition, but just priced too high at $5.95 plus $3.67.  That’s nearly $10.00 for a common token.  It is still available at the same starting bid two months later.  The current listing ends on November 22.

 

 

9/22/17

Missouri, Kirkwood.  1965 Centennial Half Dollar, Tree design type.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.00.  The start was $7.99 plus $2.50.  After a couple unsuccessful weeks as an auction item, the seller tried making it a BIN item at the same price - with the same result. It is still available, with the current ending date set for November 26.

 

 

9/22/17

North Dakota.  1972 Central Dakota Souvenir Dollar.  Private issue for the Central Dakota Coin Club.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously cataloged.  Offered for $4.00 (not bad) plus $5.00 shipping (bad).  The next two weeks the start was just $2.00, then it went down to $1.75.  Postage stayed the same.  The week of November 9 the start went down to $1.50, and then for the week ending November 19, just $1.00.  When it didn’t sell for a buck, the seller gave up and ended the listing unsold.  At the bottom of the page, where Ebay presents “More chances to get what you want”, was another example of this token up for bid from a different seller, starting off at 59¢ plus a much more reasonable $1.50.  There are no bids yet, but there are still 4 1/2 days to go.

 

 

9/22/17

North Dakota, Jamestown.  1972 Fort Seward Centennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $5.00.  The start for this example was $7.99 and postage $2.50 more.  No bids fot this XF/AU example.

9/24/17

Iowa, Emmetsburg.  1966 Irish Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $7.50.  This one could not find a bid at its $5.99 with FREE shipping start. After another week the seller lowered the start to $3.99 but added a $2.00 shipping fee.  That trick did not work either and the seller ended the listing unsold on October 2.

 

 

9/24/17

Iowa, Emmetsburg.  1967 Irish Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $6.00.  This one became the object of a bidding war between two determined collectors.  After a $5.99 with FREE shipping start two bidders placed a total of 16 bids and the token sold for $23.50.  Wow!

 

 

9/24/17

Iowa, Emmetsburg.  1993 Irish Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $3.00.  This example had a $5.99 with free shipping start, but failed to find a bid.  Relisting at $3.99 plus $2.00 shipping didn’t do the trick either and the item was ended unsold after its second week on Ebay.

9/24/17

United States.  Undated Trial John F. Kennedy Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Not previously cataloged - and not likely to be.  A fantasy issue produced for collectors, and a part of a series with different presidents depicted on the obverse.  I was the only bidder for this one at its $15.00 plus $1.99 start.  Too much, but I thought I ought to have one of these for photography.

 

 

9/25/17

9/26/17

Pennsylvania, Schafferstown.  1963 Bicentennial Half Dollar.  Unknown mintage.  Catalog value $4.50.  This is the holed variety, and still had a jump ring with a loop of ball-link keyring chain still attached.  The seller wanted a start of $12.50, and even with the FREE shipping, it still priced the item too high to reasonably expect any bids.  It has continued to be offered at the same price, but now as a BIN item, ever since - with the current listing ending on November 29.

 

 

9/27/17

Tennessee, Chattanooga.  1965 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 10,000.  Catalog value $3.50.  The nice low 99¢ start was completely cancelled out by the high $4.00 shipping fee.  No bids.  Not relisted.

 

 

9/28/17

Maryland, Frederick County - Hagerstown.  1962 Dunker Church Bicentennial Half Dollar.  Mintage 50,000.  Catalog value $2.50.  A very common token priced too high at $9.99 plus $1.00 more for postage.  The start was dropped a dollar after two weeks, then returned to $9.99 as a Buy It Now item.  On November 18 the BIN price dropped to $8.99 for its final, unsuccessful week on Ebay.

 

 

9/28/17

Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.  1926 U. S. Sesquicentennial Treasure Island Doubloon.  A frequently listed item, but this example was very nearly uncirculated with virtually all its original golden color still intact.  It was nicer than the one in my collection so I bid an aggressive (I thought) $26.88, and I expected to win it for about half of that amount.  Once again I was wrong - My bid was topped by someone else - who then went on to place an additional (unnecessary) bid in case another bidder came along and was willing to pay even more.  The final outcome - three bids (one of which was not used) and a final sale price of $27.88.  Rats!
