MTC’s On Ebay September 2019
Illinois. 1980 Illinois Dollar in original descriptive holder. Start $5.00 plus $1.00 shipping. There were no bids, and when it got to be October 13 with no bids at this price, the seller ended his listing unsold.
Michigan, Detroit. 1976 Civil War Centennial 5¢ private issue For Ken Potter Coins and Silver Bars. Mintage 1,000. Not previously cataloged. This was one of the Patrick Mint examples I had not yet found, and I won it as the only bidder for the opening bid of $4.95 plus $1.00 shipping.
Minnesota. 1959 Uniface Minnesota Half Dollar (HK-517). Golden Brass version, holed, in Extremely Fine condition - the golden plating nearly all worn away. Offered for $32.00 plus $4.50 shipping. No bids. Not relisted.
Missouri, Glasgow. 1961 125th Anniversary Half Dollar. About Uncirculated. Sold to a single bidder for the $3.99 plus $1.10 opening bid.
Montana, Scobey. 1963 Golden Jubilee Half Dollar. Start $5.00 plus $1.25 shipping. Sale price $11.00 after 4 bids by 2 bidders.
New York, Stony Point. 1965 Centennial Half Dollar. This scarce issue attracted a lot of interest - after a 99¢ plus $1.50 opening bid, it brought a respectable $20.51 after 6 bids by 4 bidders!
Oregon, Newport. 1985 Smuggler’s Cove Doubloon. Antiqued brass. It had a date and a denomination, but this souvenir from a resort area does not commemorate anything, so It will not be listed. It was too expensive anyway - the start was $20.00 (Buy It Now $99.00) plus $3.78 shipping. There were no bids, and the seller did not bother relisting it.
Pennsylvania, Biglerville. 1967 150th Anniversary Dollar worth $1.00 on a new savings account. Start 99¢ plus $3.50 shipping. It sold for $6.47 after 5 bids by 4 bidders.
Alaska, Matanuska Valley. 1963-1965 30th Anniversary Dollar. Sold to a single bidder for the $5.99 plus $2.99 opening bid. The seller had another one for the same start that also sold for the starting bid. I wondered if they were both bought by the same person, but I couldn’t tell because this was a seller who has “private listings” where the bidder’s identities are “protected”. I always wonder why a few sellers choose to list their items this way.
Massachusetts, Dennis - Harwich. 1975 Lions Club Dollar. BIN $13.50 with FREE shipping. This has been listed for a while and no one seems to be interested. I am probably going to de-list both metal varieties in the next edition of the catalog because it seems to be solely a Lion’s Club issue, and it does not commemorate anything. Still available in December.
Hawaii, Honolulu. 1973 Honolulu Dollar Numbered set of 3 pieces in original snap lock plastic case. No spikes variety, all numbered 106 on number block. Start $44.95 plus $7.90 shipping. After 3 bids by 2 bidders the set sold for $63.10.

Pennsylvania, Shamokin. 1964 Centennial Half Dollar. Start 99¢ plus $3.50 shipping. Two bidders, with 6 bids total, pushed the selling price up to $3.25.
South Dakota, Sioux Falls. 1960-1961 Dakota Territory Centennial Half Dollar. The seller did not image the reverse, so the variety cannot be determined. Offered for just $1.00, but unfortunately with a hefty $4.50 shipping fee. Apparently no one wanted it at that price and the listing was terminated unsold on October 24.
Hawaii. 2007 King Kamehameha $20.00 Liberty Dollar. Proof Silver. Two of these are available from an Australian seller for $180 Australian Dollars ($121.75 US) each. Postage $32 Australian ($21.84 US) per coin. Still available, currently with a December 14 ending date. The same ones I listed last October.

Hawaii. 2018 125th Anniversary Queen Liliuokalani and Princess Victoria Kaiulani Akahi Dalas in Silver. Graded PF-70 by NGC. Also included is a King Kamehameha non-denominated issue. The 3 pieces have been offered for $1,200 plus $14.35, for a while now. Really pretty, but are they worth as much as the seller is asking? Probably not, since they are still available from the issuer, Modern Coin Mart, online and on Ebay for $450 for this PF-70 set - and for less in Gem Proof grade, which was plenty nice enough for me. Still available in December.
Oregon, Klamath Falls. 1967 Centennial Dollar in Silver. The start was only 99¢ plus $3.78 shipping. There were 13 bids by 4 bidders and this nice piece sold for $32.88, with me being the underbidder. The next month the same seller offered another one of these ending October 21, this time starting at $29.99 plus $3.78. I bid a couple bucks more this time and won this choice item for my duplicate box for $36.00 as just the second bidder.

South Dakota, Gary. 1972 Centennial Half Dollar. Offered for $9.95 with FREE shipping, with a Best Offer option. Nobody was bidding, so I tried $8.50, and the seller accepted. This token from my “home state” appears on Ebay every year or two, and I pick copies up whenever I can. Glad to get another!
South Dakota, Sioux Falls. 1960/61 Territorial Centennial Half Dollar. Cooperating, dots version. Graded MS-65 and encapsulated by NGC. Start 99¢ plus $2.50. There were 6 bids placed by 5 bidders and the token, along with its lovely plastic slab, sold for $16.05. One of the most common of all MTC’s and worth maybe $3.00 outside of the slab.

Arizona, Lake Havasu City. London Bridge Commemoratives, 1972 to 2011, the first 40 issues in the standard finishes. No silvers or special varieties. Start $1,000 with FREE shipping. The start seems steep, but as the seller says, it would cost nearly $1,400 to buy them from the issuer - if they had them all in stock. There were no bids the first week, and when relisted for a second week, the seller ended the listing after just 7 hours because “there was an error in the listing”.
Iowa, Creston. 1969 Centennial Half Dollar. Start $9.00 with FREE shipping. There were no bids immediately, so it was made a Buy It Now item for the same price and has remained available for the past 8 weeks.

(Virginia), 1968 Balls Bluff Confederate Half Dollar. Nickel silver. Two pieces, unholed, both uncirculated, that were in a larger group of 32 Civil War Centennial medallions - which also included the four Battle of Cedar Mountain pieces below as the only other MTCs in the lot. The start was $19.99 plus a very high $14.20 shipping fee. I figured I’d be willing to pay $50.00 or so to get these 6 pieces as duplicates, so I bid $36.88, but someone else wanted them more and the lot sold for the next bid increment of $37.88 after 4 bids by 3 bidders. The other two bids were $20.00 and $21.00.
(Virginia), Culpepper County. 1969 Battle of Cedar Mountain Confederate Half Dollar. A souvenir from a Civil War battle reenactment. Golden Brass, unholed. Unknown mintage. Catalog value $7.50. The sale was for a group of 4 pieces, all uncirculated but a bit spotty, that were in a larger group of 32 Civil War Centennial medallions - which also included the two Ball’s Bluff pieces above. The group brought $37.88 after 4 bids by 3 bidders.

California, Santa Catalina Island. 1994 Trade Dollar. Start $24.00 plus $2.95. After 4 weeks the seller lowered his start to $22.00. That lasted four more weeks, and the seller decided to end his listing unsold on November 28.

Virginia, Balls Bluff. 1968 Civil War Battle Anniversary in nickel silver, unholed. About Uncirculated. Start was $8.95 plus $1.99 postage. It took another 10 day listing, but it sold to a single bidder on October 10. These seldom show up on Ebay, so it was surprising to see this one listed just two days after the lot described above.
Plymouth. 1980. 50 Drake Nobles. The location is only noted as Plymouth, and there is no further locale information on the coin. It is occasionally offered as an American token, but it actually is from the Plymouth in Devon, England, and portrays Elizabethan explorer Sir Francis Drake’s fleet of ships which completed their circumnavigation of the globe in 1580 - hence the reference to “The Drake 400” (1580-1980).
