Powerline 338-1191 1 By SHELBY LYMAN Special to the Palm Beach Post The $4 million prize fund guaranteed to the players in the next world championship match (Los Angeles, 1993) is an impressive accomplishment by the promoters. But corrected for inflation, the amount pales when compared to the $5 million offered by the Marcos government of the Philippines for a never-realized title match in 1975 between Bobby Fischer and Anatoly Karpov. Chess The comparison is, however, inappropriate. Governments, unlike private promoters, can put up large amounts of money for prestigious events without regard to market considerations. A better benchmark than the 'aborted 1975 match is the $250,000 prize fund for the Fischer-Spassky match three years earlier. By that standard, today's dollar amount represents a significant increase. The $4 million is clearly a large investment and not without risk. Will the promoters be able to recoup their capital or make a profit? If they can, chess will have made a giant step toward becoming a big- time sport in the United States. A good follow-up event would be a match between the 1993 title winner and the strongest chess computer in the world at that time. It is expected that a computer will exist by then probably DEEP THOUGHT II at least on a par with the best human player.

Washington, D.C., provided the first-day postmark, which may be ordered through June 22. There are coils of 500 and 3,000. Printed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing on its intaglio press, one plate number appears for the two inks used in production. The design features a northeast view with the flag flying above. Information data appears in the upper right with the denomination in the lower left. George Washington was the only U.S. president who did not live in the White House. The cornerstone was laid Oct. 13, 1792, and the building essentially was completed in 1800 when John Adams and his family moved in during November. Irish-American architect James Hoban designed the original Satisfaction Always building, winning a $500 prize in a national design contest. Hoban was honored in 1981 with an 18-cent commemorative stamp that was then re-released as a 20-cent value. What's In May An Extraordinary postal card is being released next May 8 as a tribute to the America's Cup races being held in San Diego, Calif. (92199). The 19-cent card will be introduced during ceremonies in San Diego, which is applying the first day postmark. A panoramic view of the Columbia River Gorge viewed from Oregon's Crown Point State Park is showcased on the 19-cent "America the Beautiful" series postal card being issued Saturday in Stevenson, Wash. (98648). Ken Hodges of Los Alamitos, designed the card, which was produced by the Government Printing Office on its offset press. Included in the design is a view of Vista House, a National Historic Landmark dedicated in 1918 to Oregon's pioneers. The centennial of Ellis Island is being honored May 11 with a 19-cent historic preservation postal card. First-day ceremonies are at 11 a.m. just outside of the Great Hall's Museum. The GPO's offset press was also used on this card. First-day covers on the Ellis Island card are being handled through the New York, N.Y., (10199) postal facility. The card's indicium was designed by East Norwich, N.Y., artist Howard Kos-low. From its opening through 1954, more than 12 million immigrants were processed through Ellis Island.

Everyone attending gets a chance to meet other collectors. Impromptu lectures are given on just about every topic, and scheduled talks are usually presented in some side room. Dealers of almost every conceivable type of coin or medal display their pieces side-by-side with their competitors and everyone wanders the aisles, fiddling with one coin after another, lusting, dreaming and sometimes buying. One of the best of the coin shows, a three-day event run by the Greater New York Numismatic Convention, is opening on May 7 at the Omni Park Central Hotel in New York City. It will feature a three-part auction of United States paper currency including the curious fractional currency that circulated in the mid-19th century in lieu of coins. The auction is being presented by Stack's and will also sell U.S. Coins and medals, especially Washington and Lincoln medals; these were medals struck by private mints both to commemorate the presidents and to capitalize on their popularity. Strangely, most of the Washington medals were minted in England shortly after Washington had orchestrated the victory of the colonies over that country in the war of independence. Jonn Kleeburg, curator of mod- downtown Newark every 20 to 30 minutes. Dog, cat motifs Mints around the world rely on the minting and selling of various motif coins. These are considered bullion coins because their worth is generally only equal to the value of the metal they contain. As investments, they rarely appreciate with anywhere near the rapidity of more-established collectibles such as old coins or stamps. Nevertheless, they remain an important source of currency for some very small economies and of amusement for their collectors. Currently, the Isle of Manx is offering two designs in gold that will appeal to animal lovers. The first of a series of dog coins features Queen Elizabeth's favorite type, the corgi. It's a low-slung herding dog bred to nip at the heels of cattle while its shortness enables it to avoid their kicking hooves. Another series from the same mint depicts cats. The series is well established, entering its fifth year of issue and fifth design. This year's star is the Siamese. Both these designs are available in 24-karat gold in sizes ranging from one-twenty-fifth of an ounce of gold to the largest, the one-ounce size. The cost ranges from $24.10 for the smallest to $355 for the largest.

Honoring Columbus The Newark Museum just opened an exhibition of early American and European copper, silver and gold coins. The exhibition in honor of the 500th anniversary of Columbus' stumbling across the Americas in his westward search for the Orient shows through coinage, maps and artifacts the early colonization of the New World. The show was curated by William L. Bischoff and draws from the Newark Museum's very fine resident collection of coins, one of the finest in the East. It's being held in the C.
