Especially in the numismatic industry. With the unrestricted availability of silver, "private mints" cropped up all over the country. At one toe over 30 different firms incorporated the term MINT in their company name Money Clips Today that number has decreased considerably but there are still a few without so mudh as a vault in which to store their products. Their minting facilities are limited to their letterheads. Fortunately, some of the more reliable minting houses ere among those doing the •most for collectors and dealers in ingots and medals. The lunch-bucket operators are fast falling by the wayside and I doubt that there will be .more than five "mints" in existence by the .end of 1974. THE PRESSURE is too great. Either they produce a good logical collectors item or ifthey continue to produce junk and suffer the consequences. In a majority of cases most of the medals and ingots offered today are nothing more than junk. One of the top five private ts in the country is the Leitcher Mint of Lancaster, Cailif. Here the first * 'two-color" medal was created with 24-ikarat gold image fused with a .999 pure silver medal. The Paul Revere Medal. Their second two-color innovation came with the Minerva Thirty-five dollar coin in v/hich the helmeted head of Minerva was of 24-karat pure gold in a solid silver medal. BOTH PIECES were widely accepted for their originality of thought and are very popular throughout the coin and medal collecting world. The latest idea to emerge from the Leitcher Mint drawing board is the round coin- in got, weighing one Troy ounce with reeded edge and a frosted eagle device superimposed on a mirror finish surface. Up until now ingots have been more or less confined to a "bar" or "loaf" configuration with its seal and Troy ounce weight crudely stan on the top surface. One to three ounce ingots in the bar shape have been cast and-or struck with pictorial surfaces depicting some well-known historical scene or the profile of a famous person, but these pieces sell for much more than their intrinsic values and as an investment commodity they lack potential,. The Leitcher coin-ingot on the other hand, is intended for just that purpose. Investment. It makes an ideal personal gift that can only increase in value over the years.

Nixon Tightens Perimeter In Buff Probe Defense By EUGENE V. RISHER WASHINGTON (UP I) President Nixon has drawn his perimeter of defense in the Watergate case a little tighter. The net effect of the President's action in refusing to allow Ihe Senate Watergate Committee to see presidential documents is that White House aides —current or former — may testify before the committee but they cannot document their testimony from presidential papers. Washington Window The to avoid with e 'Rise' (Continued on Page 31) committee, seeking a constitutional quarrel the President, quietly suggested that they be invited to the White House for informal talks with him and that specific documents be furnished to substantiate points in the testimony and clarify conflicts. But Nixon rejected both of these ideas as an "erosion" of presidential prerogative. Makes Aides Available With some of Nixon's closest personal and political associates coming before the committee, the President informed Chairman Sam J. Ervin, D- N.C, that he would not "under any circumstances" testify personally before the group. As for the presidential documents he refused to allow numbers to see, these cover any papers generated by the President or his aides since Jan. 20, 1969 -4he day he took office. In his letter to Ervin, Nixon said he was taking the action because of his duty to uphold the constitutional separation of powers under which each of the three, equal branches of government is not answerable to another. He pointed out that in an earlier concession to» the Senate's investigation, he had lifited the "executive privilege" of those current and former aides the committee wants to question, making them available to assist in the inquiry.

White House officials privately are leaving doen the of possibility before open an appearance a joint session but speculate that questions from the floor would not be tolerated. They say the President has not yet made up his mind how he will respond to the various charges of wrong-doing leveled at him by his former counsel, John W. Dean III.
