Back to College Numismatic Sale – 70% off books, 15% off currency, and an 8% off coupon for most other eBay listings

My Christmas break is just about over and will be heading back to Seton Hall University to begin the Spring semester. NGC was kind enough to invite me back for my fourth internship over the holidays and I capped it off by visiting the FUN show in Orlando. During my four internships at NGC, I have gained a lot of numismatic knowledge while becoming friends with some outstanding people. I am looking forward to heading back down to Sarasota this summer and thank NGC for the opportunity.

I have spent the past week purchasing a great amount of new inventory for my eBay store. Added more than 500 listings over the past few days including US and world coins, exonumia, a little bit of currency and some collector bullion coins.

I have marked down all numismatic books 70% and US and world currency 15%.

You can use this coupon code for all other listings except bullion – BACKCOLLEGE8

I appreciate you taking the time to visit my store and making purchases. I do combine ship so please take a look at all of the categories you may have an interest. Ship both domestically and internationally.

Lastly, my next article in The Numismatist will appear in the February issue which should be mailed in the next couple of weeks.

So-called dollars and more books added to my eBay store

I know I have not written an article in a long time. Right after finishing up my sophomore year at Seton Hall in May, I flew down to Sarasota to begin my second summer internship at NGC. Finished up last week and once again, I had a great time while increasing my numismatic knowledge. Mr. Rick Montgomery, President of NGC, and the entire staff made me feel welcomed. I hope to go back during my Christmas vacation.

During the internship, I had an opportunity to attend one week of the ANA’s Summer Seminars. It was my sixth Summer Seminar and I highly recommend all numismatists make it a point to add it to your bucket list of things to do.

While at the Summer Seminar, I purchased approximately 160 books during the ANA Library book sale. Many of those books have been listed on my eBay store. I invite you to take a look.

In regards to my eBay store, I just created a new category – So-called dollars. I have the pleasure of working with a well-known so-called dollar collector and dealer. Each month, I plan on listing up to 80 so-called dollars. The first 20 have just been listed. If you collect so-called dollars, I invite you to visit my store and follow it so you are notified when new listings go up.

Lastly, during the next two weeks before my junior year begins, I will be listing approximately 100 world and US coins, numismatic books, a lot of exonumia, and some bullion each day.

Click here to visit my eBay store: https://www.ebay.com/str/numismaticswithkenny

I am excited to share more than 19,000 items totaling over 21,000 coins, books, and exonumia have been sold since I opened the store three years ago. I truly appreciate all of you who have purchased items.

My latest article will be appearing in The Numismatist next month. Hope you will read it.

Enjoy the rest of the summer,

Kenny

My freshman year at Seton Hall will come to an end this week. It has been a great experience and I am looking forward to next year as things open up with Covid hopefully being behind us by then and it becomes a more normal college experience.

I have placed about 1/3 of the 1800 eBay numismatic listings on sale. You will find sale items from 15 to 40% off including all of the numismatic literature listings. You are welcome to make fair offers on all of the other listings.

Later this week, I will be purchasing between 500 and 600 coins from my usual suppliers plus from an estate of a local collector who sadly passed a couple of months ago. He collected quality coins and I will be spending a couple of days with a dealer viewing the coins and making purchases.

I will begin listing these coins, currency, and bullion this Wednesday and should have all of them up by next Sunday (May 23, 2021). In the meantime, I invite you to visit my store to view the present listing and to take advantage of the sale.

My Numismatic eBay Store Update – Many New Additions 2500+ Listings

Yesterday, I spent several enjoyable hours with a good friend and long-time knowledgeable collector. He has built a large and impressive collection. Each time I visit, he gives me an opportunity to go through a part of his collection and pick out several hundred coins to purchase. As he knows these are coins will mostly be for my eBay store (I do keep some for my collection), his prices are very reasonable and allow for me to price them fairly and still make a small profit.

I am about 40 % of the way through listing these newly purchased coins on my store. They should all be up by tomorrow (Monday night). If you have not been to my eBay store or if it has been a while, please take a look.

Many of these newly listed coins will be purchased very quickly as I did my best in picking out sought after coins.

The main eBay store url link is:

https://www.ebay.com/str/numismaticswithkenny

I do combine ship and package the coins with the best packing materials. While visiting my store, be sure to click on the save this seller button so you will be made aware of when I add new listings. 

You will find 500+ numismatic book listings all at 50% off for the Holidays. It is a very eclectic group of titles so I invite everyone to view them no matter what you collect. Here is a link to my book category:

https://www.ebay.com/str/numismaticswithkenny/Numismatic-Books-Literature/_i.html?_storecat=29010782014

For my token collectors, I am about 1/3 of the way through listing the 3100-transit token collection I purchased a couple of weeks ago. The collection has tokens from every state. As I am just getting into collecting tokens, I did not realize how many token collectors are out there and how popular these transit tokens are. Sales have been very brisk. It is my goal to have the rest of the collection up within the next three weeks. I am listing the tokens by state (alphabetically) so if you do not see the state you are looking for, I will get them up as soon as I can.

Here is the token category link:

https://www.ebay.com/str/numismaticswithkenny/Tokens/_i.html?_storecat=33643586014

There are now over 2500 world/US coin, books, bullion, and exonumia listings. I hope you consider shopping at my eBay store for a holiday gift for your favorite collector or better yet, for yourself!

If you live outside the United States, I do ship internationally through eBay’s Global Shipping program.

Happy Holidays!!!

1000+ US & World Numismatic Books for Sale

I recently purchased a collection of more than 1200 United States and World numismatic books covering a wide range of numismatic topics. Most books are in English but there are a number of books written in other languages.

I am in the process of listing the books on my eBay store. I anticipate it will take me two to three weeks to get all of the books listed. Here is a link that will take you directly to the numismatic book section of my numismatic eBay store:

https://www.ebay.com/str/numismaticswithkenny/Numismatic-Books-Literature/_i.html?_storecat=29010782014

I will write another post when I have finished adding all the listings but welcome you to view the listings I have up already. If you do not want to wait and desire a particular title, email me at numismatistkenny@gmail.com. I will let you know if I have that particular title(s) and what the cost will be.

All international sales will go through eBay’s International Shipping Program. eBay is responsible for determining fees/custom charges. I have no control over those costs.

United States buyers will find the shipping cost noted in the eBay listing. I do combine ship to keep shipping costs as low as possible. Additionally, many of the books have collector value in addition to their great information. I am pricing the books below what others are selling them for as the books were sold to me at a reasonable cost.

Thank you for reading and visiting my eBay store. After you have looked through the numismatic book listings, I invite you to view the more than 1500 coins and sets I have for sale.

Mexican Voices in Metal and Paper

This course examines the general perspective of coins, some medals, and paper money that compose Mexican Numismatics, covering the period from 1492 to 1925. The highlights of this topic are the coinage of  Charles and Johanna (1536 – 1571), cobs (1572 – 1733), and klippes (1733 – 1734), on the oddly shaped coinage. We will glance at the Pillar series (1732 – 1771), busts (1772 – 1810), and War of Independence (1810 – 1822) reviewing the issues made by the Emergency Mints outside of Mexico City. Once Mexico gained its independence from Spain we will touch on Iturbide’s coinage and some of the 14 Republican Mints (1822 – 1905). During the French Invasion, coins on behalf of Maximilian were made as the Emperor of Mexico (1863 – 1867), followed by the Republican issues (1867 – 1905). The establishment of the banking system appeared in 1864 and with that the first issues of paper money walked on the streets of Mexico City, extending to the rest of the Republic (1864 – 1915). In 1905 a Monetary Reform occurred and the coin design changed some. By 1913 the first issues of the Mexican Revolución appeared in coins and paper money, ending in 1917 altogether. We will stop this meteoric review with the establishment of the Banco de México, the equivalent of the Federal Reserve, in 1925. Instructor: Ricardo de Leon Tallavas, author and Mexican coinage expert When: July 9, 2020 | 1:00-3:00 PM MDT
