I have added several hundred US and World Coin listings over the past week and will be listing another 100 today. Although I am not having a sale on coins, I will consider all fair offers so take a look. Here is a link to the main store page. While you are there, please follow my store so you will be one of the first alerted to new additions.
As I noted in my last post, I purchased more than 3000 transit tokens. It takes a lot of time to list each one and hope to have all the listings completed in the next few weeks. They are selling quickly and I believe there are more than seven hundred now up and unsold. If you collect tokens, please take a look. The direct link to the token’s section is:
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.
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:
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.
With school being closed and a lot less homework, I have been able to add many new listings over the past several days. Still have hundreds more to put up but I invite everyone to visit my store at anytime. You will find US and World Coins, Currency, Books, Tokens, Medals, Errors, and more.
When you click on the below link, please click on the save seller link on my store page.
I thought it was the right time to open up my numismatic eBay store and I am glad I did. Within hours of posting my first few auctions and buy it now listings, a number of coins have already sold. Of course, I named it the Numismatics with Kenny eBay store.
Over the next several weeks, I will be adding new listings every day. By the end of the summer, there should be thousands of world and US coins, currency, bullion, and other numismatic items listed.
You are all invited to take a look and I hope you include me in your favorite seller list and bookmark the store. Please come back often to see the new listings.
90+ percent of my listings are free shipping and I will do my best to ship very quickly and to make sure all items are packaged very well.

Here is a video discussing the ANA Summer Seminar and the Young Numismatist auction.
Welcome back to Numismatics with Kenny. Today’s video is a special request made to my subscribers and viewers. As many of you know, the American Numismatic Association conducts their two-week Summer Seminar at the ANA headquarters and Colorado College in Colorado Springs, CO each summer. If you have not attended a seminar, I highly recommend you go as you will have the opportunity to meet a number of great numismatists from the United States and some from all over the world. Go to money.org to learn more about attending the seminar and to download the seminar’s course catalog.
I will be attending my fourth Summer Seminar this June and was recently contacted by the ANA to lead the first week’s YN (Young Numismatist) auction. In addition to the great courses, ANA library book sale, the wonderful comradery, a highlight to each week is the YN auction. Each year, the ANA offers a good number of full and partial scholarships to young numismatists to attend the seminar. The scholarships pay for the seminar courses, travel expenses, and room and board. Each week an average of 25 young numismatists join the many adult numismatists who attend the seminar.
The YN auction is the primary fund raiser to pay for these scholarships. Attendees and others who desire to promote our hobby to young collectors contribute numismatic items – US and world coins, ancient coins, tokens, currency, and other numismatic items to the auctions. The young numismatists attending the seminar collect, catalog, head up lot viewing, and run the auction. It is a great experience for all of us. The auction is held on the next to last night of each week’s seminar. All attendees are welcome to bid and as the proceeds go towards the YN scholarship program, the bidders are very generous in their bidding.
And now for my request of you. If you are in agreement that we need to have more young collectors in our great hobby, I ask you to send some numismatic items to this year’s summer seminar. Your generous gift may be tax deductible and is going to a great cause. Any donation is appreciated but if you are wondering what the normal value range of the donated item has been in the past, it normally ranges from $25.00 to well into the hundreds of dollars.
Again, any donated numismatic item is appreciated. When the auction is over, you will receive a thank you letter from the ANA. You can keep the letter for tax purposes. The ANA does not assign a value to your donated item or items. You will determine the value. To donate, simply email me and request a donation form at firstname.lastname@example.org or click here for a donation form– the form includes the address to send your donated item(s)and I will send you a donation form by email which includes the ANA’s mailing address.
My email address is noted below in the video’s description. I want to thank Ms. Amber Bradish, Mr. Akio Lis, and the ANA staff for selecting me to be the YN auction lead for week one. With your help, I hope we can raise a significant amount of money so many young numismatists can be awarded scholarships in the future. Thank you so much and please feel free to share this video with other numismatists who enjoy helping young collectors. Specific questions about donating, please contact me at email@example.com or the ANA directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
