Coins & Paper Money discussion

Hi there-

 

I've been selling off my Dad's Morgan dollar collection for a few months now, and now that I'm getting to the end of that supply, I'm starting to dig through his Peace dollars to figure out the best way to sell them on eBay.

 

When selling Morgan dollars in auctions, I found that I didn't need to set a high minimum bid or a reserve to get a decent price. the auctions naturally averaged out at least more than $20/coin, which I was happy with.

 

However, I'm looking through the Peace dollar auctions, and I'm seeing a disturbing number of them sell for .99 cents or significantly less than $20. Since Morgan and Peace dollars have the same amount of silver, I don't understand what's going on. Can anyone give me any insight into this? Is the only way to get decent prices for Peace dollars to use BIN?

 

Thanks,

Meg

Morgans v Peace Dollars - strategies?

Holas Amigos del mundo de monedas!  Heron continues his efforts in the ongoing

campaign to help keep this Coin & Paper Money chatting place alive.  Hopefully

for another 6 months, mas o menos. Quien Sabe? Perhaps long enough for Heron

to reach 300 'different' Euro Central coin issues? 

 

Europa Central different coin number 265 is another interesting item.  There were

many different issuing entities under the first name of Mansfeld.  In addition, there

were many different coin varieties struck.

 

Coin of Mansfeld-Eigentliche-Hinterort [we did see a mention of Mansfeld-Hinterort

by one a our fellow coin collectors.  This happened recently.]

 

This coin was recently acquired from a fine Socal coin dealer. 

The Coin: 1/24 Thaler - Silver - Full Date of 1624 - 21mm - round.

 

Obverse: Crowned 4-fold coat of arms divide mintmeisters initials A K.

                Legend Frid. Chr. E. Da.

                [Joint coinage issued by Friedrich-Christof and a relative named David].

 

Reverse: Imperial Orb with cross above orb.  Orb divides date: 16 orb 24.

               Legend: MANSF. NO. D. I. H. S. E. S.

This coin is KM118 - varieties exist.

 

A short history:

1486 - M-E-H was founded when Hinterort Line was divided into M.E.H. and

           the Schraplau Line.

 

1666 - Upon the extinction of the Eigentliche-Hinterort Line, the lands and titles

           reverted to Mansfeld-Vorderort-Bornstadt.

 

Some Notes:

Various 'joint coinages' exist.

 

This coin was on Heron's 'want list' for 35 years. Great fun to find one and draw a

line through this 'wanted' item. 

 

This coin is a Euro Central, HRE, and a wartime issue.

 

The addition of this nice coin doubled Heron's different Mansfeld coins.

Another fun situation for this great hobby of Coin collecting.  And the search

continues!
