6—Algona (la.) Upptf D«t MolftM Thursday, February 17, Teddy has now officially been replaced by cousin Franklin on the 6-cent regular postage issue, Dark bro-*Ti in color and with a strong profile portrait dominating the stamp, this is the Mcood in what promises to be an outstanding series of standard postage issues. The third In tba series features a military portrait of Washington and wffl have its first day of it** Feb. 22 in the nation's capital. I suspect many first day covers were prepared for the FDR issue, using related stamp* on the cover. The original Mries of four values issued following his death is still generally available in quantity at face or a fraction above. I didn't happen to have any of these on hand, but the more recent Eleanor Roosevelt made a good companion stamp. Many foreign countries have also issued commemorative stamps for this dlstinquished couple. I had the large blue commemorative from Brazil cancelled on a plain heavy card for their first day of issue back in the mid 1940*6. So I used the blank side of the card for our new 6 cent giving me two first days from two countries oa & single piece. Interesting camtssations for the coming Wastiagtoo 5 ceat could in- clude the current issue in regular, coil, or booklet, the 1 1/2 cent from the current regular series featureing Mt. Vernon, the 1 cent and 1 1/2 cent (Martha) from the 1936 Presidential series, odd values from the 1932 Bicentennial issues, and various items through the years in the poital stationery field including the 1932 Bicentennial values picturing Mr. Vernon. - o - Considerable research went into the ultimate decision on the exact composition to use in the new non-silver coins so that vending machines would not be adversely effected. The batting average is high, but not 100%. A news note states that some post office vending stamp machines will not accept the new quarters, so it has been necessary to mark the machines for such. Another problem concerns coins in bulk, which have been handled by- weight. There is a difference which assumes some import when large amounts are involved. Bags of silver and non-silver would cause no problem but the coins, of course, are mixed. Perhaps the government, if the supply permits, will start the gradual withdrawal of the past silver issues to recover the bullion and THURS. thru SAT.

Stocks of these would now seem to be largely exhausted, so any crisp, new bills must come from those in collector and dealer hands. The supply of 1957*s would seem to be ample and dealers would offer only a 5 or 10% premium, if that, for these presently. Future value depends on the number of new small bill collectors entering the field. New bills of any of the 1935 series should bring a modest premium. Circulated bills can be valued only In relationship to their condition and well circulated Items are sought only if the series is quite scarce in extra One to uncirculated. Series 1928C, D, and E would have value in almost any con* ditlon. Series 1928, 1928B, 1934 and 1935 would have value if at least fine. The experimental R and S bills and those issued during the war for Hawaii and North Africa also merit a premium in fine or better. The latter two would be collectors by those interested in military currency. At one time, these two bills were priced approximately the same but the North African $1 (a silver certificate with a yellow seal) has now forged ahead and an uncirculated specimen is priced from $10 to $12.50 while the Hawaiian is still available for $6.50 to $7.50. Like stamps, centering for some collectors is a factor and a gem bill bringing the best price will be cut in such a way as to produce even margins. - o - As another guide to the actual coin market, the 1956 silver crown peso of Columbia offers a good case study. Presumably only 11,000 were struck For some time, this coin was priced at around $37. Apparently a hoard was recently released. I don't know how many, but the mintage indicates the maximum amount assuming that the figures are correct. The price has steadily gone down and while most dealers list at around $25,1 have seen ads pricing as low as $19.50. Dealers and collectors in the area say that there has been no re striking. The point is that if there is no hoarding individual wo rid collector purchases are not sufficient even for this popular crown series to make a mintage as small as that an actual rarity. This does seem strange yet many active collectors just haven't reached the point where they will pay over $10 for a single coin. There are enough varieties around so they don't have to in order to keep their collection growing. 200 Pay Honors At A Double Silver Wedding About 200 attended open house held for Mr. and Mrs. Ray V.
