MTCs on Ebay September 2020
Kansas. 1954 Official Centennial Coin with the inscription bar blank. Uncirculated, which is not unusual for this issue. Start $3.00 plus $4.00 shipping. A week later the start was dropped to $2.00 and stilll there were no bids. On September 23 the start was lowered to just $1.00 and it sold to a single bidder after its second week at this price.
Unknown Location. Undated Bronze Martin Luther King Equality One Dollop Coin. An unusual issue I have not seen before with a portrait of Martin Luther King and the legends EQUALITY / IN GOD WE TRUST / FREEDOM RIDERS and the “denomination” of ONE DOLLOP. Start $9.99 plus $4.50 shipping. I won it as the second bidder for $11.50. Certainly not intended for circulation, but an interesting addition to my “wannabe” box!
Hawaii, Molokai. 1976 Molokai Dollar. Start $15.00 plus $4.20 shipping. After 3 bids by 2 bidders, it sold for $20.50.
Kansas, Leavenworth. 1969 Buffalo Bill Days Dollar. Start $5.00 plus $3.20 shipping. No bids. Not relisted.
Kentucky, Paducah. 1941 Strawberry Festival Nickel. Reflective surface variety, Uncirculated - or very close. Sold to a single bidder for the $24.99 plus $4.00 starting bid.
Pennsylvania, Bowmansville. 1970 Official Souvenir Coin struck in silver. The first of these I have seen. Offered as a One Ounce Silver coin, which with its 35 mm size, of course it is not - it actually weighs only .716 ounce. I was the only bidder at its $32.99 with FREE shipping start, which I think is quite a bargain.
Wisconsin, Delavan. 1961 125th Anniversary Half Dollar. Start $5.00 plus $1.00 shipping. For the week ending October 28 the start was reduced to $4.00. It is still available at that starting bid, with the current ending date of November 4.
Alaska, Skagway. 1974 Gateway to the Klondike Dollar. Sold to a single bidder for the 99¢ plus $4.59 start.
Colorado, Victor. “1900” Lesher House Restoration $1.25 “Dollar”, numbered 728. Start $100 with FREE shipping. It lasted 6 weeks, but finally sold on September 18 for the opening price. Strangely, the seller offered another of these on the same day, numbered 774 for the same start, but with a $3.90 shipping charge. It also sold on September 18 for the opening bid.
Hawaii, Hilo. 1964 Merry Monarch Festival Dollar. Very close to Uncirculated. The start was $5.00 plus $3.20 shipping. There were 7 bids by 4 bidders and it sold for $11.02.
Kansas, Liberal. 1963 Diamond Jubilee Nickel. Start $3.88 plus $2.95 shipping. The item was listed at a slightly lower $3.75 start the following week, but it was immediately deleted “because the item is no longer available”.
Michigan, Harrisville. 1952 Kiki Cuyler Half Dollar. Choice About Uncirculated. Start $1.95 plus $3.99. It sold to the second bidder for $2.25. Cheap!
Texas, San Antonio. 1978 Texas Folklife Festival Dollar. Start $7.75 with FREE shipping. For the week ending September 30, it was made a Buy It now item for $6.95, then the seller ended the listing because “the item is no longer available”.
Alaska, Fairbanks. 1959 Birthday Year Souvenir Money Dollar. Choice Uncirculated. Start 1¢ plus $1.55 shipping. No bids, but Ebay says it was relisted. When I followed the “view relisted item” link it brought me to a lot of postage stamps sold by the same seller instead of the Alaska Birthday Dollar - and when I searched by the lot number, I got no result at all, so I do not know what became of the item. It was a very nice token and priced quite reasonably, so I was surprised that it received no bids in the week it was on Ebay.
Alaska, Fort Wainright - Eielson Air Force Base. 1967 Alaska Purchase Centennial Good For One Haircut Token. Choice About Uncirculated. Start $5.00 plus $3.20 shipping. After 5 bids by 3 bidders it sold for $13.53.
Nebraska, Leigh. 1962 Diamond Jubilee Half Dollar. Start $1.00 plus another buck for shipping. I caught it on the last day, and since it had no bids yet, I placed a bid and won it for the opening price with no competition. Too cheap!
Ohio, Bellbrook. 1966 150th Anniversary Half Dollar. Spotty Uncirculated. Start $4.99 plus $3.99. There were no bids and the item was not relisted.
Washington, Seattle. 1974 Seattle Seafair Silver Anniversary. Private issue 10% discounts SeaFair Commemorative Coin from Valu-Mart. About Uncirculated. Sold to a single bidder for the $4.99 plus $4.14 starting bid. Not previously listed.

Montana. 1964 Montana Territorial $50 “Gold” Slug. Numbered version - this one #1993. Encapsulated and graded MS-63 by NGC. Start $45.00 plus $3.95 shipping. There were no bids and it was not relisted.
Washington, Seattle. 1962 World’s Fair Dollar, lot of 3 including two reverse varieties of the golden brass version and a single example of the white metal version, which the seller notes as being “an extreme rarity”. These have been available for quite a while now with a $199.95 plus $3.99 Buy It Now price. The current listing has a Make Offer option. I think these were first offered as action items at a higher price, but my memory is not what it used to be, and I am not certain. The white metal version is very elusive!
Georgia, Villa Rica. 1976 U.S. Bicentennial 13¢ Token, Private issue of Met Coins. About Uncirculated. Not listed in the previous editions of the catalog. Sold to a single bidder for the $9.95 plus $3.25 opening bid.

Iowa, Pella. Lot of 28 Dutch Dollars, between 1980 and 1986. Includes 1 1980, 2 of 1981, 1982 and 1983, 4 each from 1985 and 1986, 5 of the 1988 issue and 8 from 1989. Sold to a single bidder (the same person who bought the lot of Emmetsburg Dollars above - based on the feedback score) for the $28.95 plus $15.30 opening bid.
North Dakota, Bismarck. 1961 Dakota Territory Centennial Half Dollar. Chief Four Bears obverse, December 31 inscription reverse. Start 99¢ plus just 85¢ for postage. It failed to find a buyer the first week, but did sell, for the opening bid, at the end of its second week on Ebay.

Washington, Seattle. 1902 Elk’s Carnival Quarter, Private issue for Rinehard’s Cigar Store. A very attractive 38 mm aluminum elk head pictorial token with a $39.95 plus $3.00 starting bid. Choice About Uncirculated. I probably will not be listing this one because it appears to be a private celebration in a very large town, while I do list Elks Fair tokens from small towns like Bisbee and Prescott Arizona, where such celebrations would be community-wide events. Does that make sense? I don’t know - maybe I will list it….or maybe I will delete all the private celebration tokens. Anyway, the token sold to a single bidder for the $39.95 plus $3.00 starting bid.
Texas, Hill County. 1965 Hill County Diamond Jubilee Hill County Courthouse Dollar. Start 99¢ plus $3.99 shipping. No one bid until the listing ended on October 9 when a couple bidders spotted it, placed 7 bids between them, and pushed the selling price up to $4.25.
Vermont, Second Vermont Republic. 2009 Succession Twenty Dollars. Half Ounce .999 Fine Silver “Trade Token”. Not previously listed, and I am not certain that it should be. I have listed issues from unofficial and sucessionist “governments” like the Conch Republic, and made mention of issues from other regions like Micronia, Cascadia and various areas of Antarctica some of which have virtually no population or official status as coin-issuing territories - so long as they are within the territorial boundaries of the United States. This seldom-seen item sold to a single bidder for the opening price of $49.50 plus $4.05 shipping.
Florida, Palm Beach. 1976 (1977) U. S. Bicentennial Kiwanis Sand Dollar struck in copper. The scarcer metal variety in About Uncirculated condition. Start $4.99 plus $3.50 postage. There were no bids and the item was not relisted.
Oregon, Joseph. 1959 Oregon Centennial Half Dollar in unofficial silver plated finish. Probably Uncirculated, but it is difficult to tell because it has been polished. Start $13.95 plus $2.00 shipping. No bids, but it came back with the next week with the start lowered by $2.00, and the postage raised by 50¢. This did not work either so the start was reduced by another $2.00 ($9.95) and the postage raised another 30¢ ($2.80). The first week there were no bids, but during its second week at this price it attracted the attention of a single bidder who won it for the opening bid ($9.95 plus $2.80).
Alaska, Sitka. 1963 Alaska’s Historical Capital Dollar. Very close to Uncirculated with several small spots on the reverse. Sold to a single bidder for the 99¢ plus $2.98 opening bid.
Colorado, Victor. “1900” Lesher House Restoration $1.25. This one numbered 390. Start $2.99 plus $3.00 shipping. After 23 bids by 12 bidders it sold for $83.00. Another one (#380) was being offered by a different seller the same day for a $150.00 with FREE shipping Buy It Now price. When the first item sold for just $83.00 the seller of this second piece deleted his listing because “the item is no longer available”.
Colorado, Victor. “1900” (1993) City of Mines $1.25 Lesher “Dollar” reproduction, numbered #380. Start $150.00 with FREE shipping.

Colorado, Cripple Creek. Undated (1977) $1.00 Gold Trade Token (Eagle Obverse) in lusterless Extremely Fine Condition, although the seller inexplicably called it BU. Mintage 2,000. Start $9.99 with FREE shipping. After 12 bids by 3 bidders it sold for a remarkable $41.00.
Hawaii, Honolulu. 1974 Hawaii Dollar. High wave with what looked like it might have been a smooth surface - a variety I do not list. Start $2.25 plus $1.50 shipping. It sold to the second bidder for $2.50.
Illinois, Peru. 1976 U. S. Bicentennial Good For One Smile Token. Private issue for Phil Klabel. Eagle on shield. Mintage 1,000. Not previously listed. I was the only bidder and won it for the $9.99 with FREE shipping start.
Kansas, McPherson County. 1970 Centennial Dollar. Housed in a heavy plastic case. Edge variety not known. Start $2.25 plus $3.00 . After 4 bids by a pair of bidders it sold for $4.25.

Vermont, Manchester. 1961 Bicentennial Half Dollar. The start was $4.95 plus $1.00 shipping. It lasted until October 24 when the lot was deleted “because the item is no longer available.
Arizona, Tucson. 1933 Wolfville Western Days Dollar. The seller called it BU Red, and it was a nice red specimen with some tiny black spots. MUCH nicer than average. The start was just 99¢ plus $3.29 shipping. After 7 bids by 5 bidders it sold for $12.36. This would be at least a MS-65 if the winner were to have it slabbed by either NGC or PCGS. A great buy for someone out there!
Illinois, Shawneetown. 1960 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar struck in silver. Start $32.00 plus $4.20 shipping. There were no bids the first two weeks, so - since no one else seemed to want it - during the third week I placed a bid and won it for the opening bid.

Hawaii. 1893-2018 King Kalakaua Akahi Dala by the Royal Hawaiian Mint. Gem Proof. Buy It Now Price $49.95 with FREE shipping. 21 were available, and all of them sold. The same seller offered MS-70 examples graded and encapsulated by NGC for $99.95 Buy It Now and sold 13 of those. Both grades are exceptional specimens, with the MS-70 examples perhaps being the early strikes withslightly more contrast between the frosted devices and the mirrored fields.
Iowa, Kenset. 1972 Centennial Coin. Sold to a single bidder for the reasonable $1.95 plus 95¢ start.
(Nevada, Los Vegas). 1878 (1981 Copyright date) Elvis Presley Memorial Dollar. Not listed in the previous editions of my catalog. This one in Antiqued Nickel-silver. About Uncirculated. There was one bidder who took it home for the $9.99 with FREE shipping start. Surprisingly scarce - apparently still held by the original Elvis Presley show attendees as a souvenir, because they sure do not show up very often.
