4-Algona (la.) Upper Dei Moines Thursday, March 10, 1966 Disney presents "THAT DARN CAT" ALGONA THEATRE Thursday thru Tuesday Changing Times for Feb. 1966, available at the public library, has an interesting article on disposing of unwanted articles discovered in the attic or other obscure corners of the house. This was a realistic presentation of collector value and Interest tempered caution brakes on high expectations. The section on autographs stressed what is often overlooked. The supply and demand situation is influenced not only by the fame of the individual concerned but the volume of his personal correspondence and the extent to which it has been saved. One would expect the signature of John F. Kennedy to be fairly common but such is not so. A famous autograph expert has identified so far the hand of 14 secretaries who were authorized to sign the late President's name and he had a robot signing machine as well. Likely the latter was used for thank you communications relative to party assistance and contributions. Hence the bulk of the presumed autographs held by thousands of people who are not themselves autograph collectors are not the genuine hand signature that is required. He noted that Lincoln's signature has been faked so often that some people collect the fakes. As a general rule, a signature with a hand-written communication has a high probability of the genuine but the signature alone is highly suspect. This would be particularly true on communications of a routine nature and on documents such as land grants. - o- The chances of finding a valuable book in the typical home library are rather slim. The early works of famous authors might well bring a premium. He noted that Booth Tarkington has but two scarce titles, "The Gentleman from Indiana," and "Monsieur Beaucaire." I think the best-xjhances of finds in older Tii&raries rests In the limited editions of local and regional writers. Such topics as the west, Indians, and the Civil War are much in demand and published diaries, recollections and general local color themes would merit a price consideration greater than the usual second-hand clearance table. Frequently, a writer will personally underwrite his own publication and order only a hundred or so copies for his friends, etc., with no intentions of general sale or making money. This type of work in later years has considerable value for the collector and student. - o- May I again urge that when bundles of old correspondence are involved, don't tear the stamp off the envelope. Keep the entire cover intact as the cancel may have collecting interest. There is considerable Interest in the old flag type cancel used In the twenties and earlier. In this case, the stamp itself is a secondary point. - o- You currency collectors have no doubt noted that the vinyl pages with three pockets are now available with both four and two pockets. The four pocket size is primarily for the current size bill and the two pocket will serve for some foreign bills that have extra height, although extra length is not served. For these longer bills, however, I find that I can insert them vertically and the extra depth of the two pocket page will hold them adequately. These pages in all three sizes are also excellent for covers, souvenir sheets, blocks, and even, In the four pocket page, single stamps and sets. I generally have these on hand in all three sizes at 20 cents each in lots of 5 or more. - o- The first bust has hit us In the regular postage series. General Washington did not win every battle and it is obvious that he had had a hard day at the front, This is the instant impression from •the new 5-cent stamp. Our .'Founding Father on this stamp jneeds nothing so much from his [country as a razor and even the | much-abused click, click brand Jwill do. The background suggests Jtbree swarms of agitated gnats, ! Maybe they are bothering George •rather than the British. Someone ought to get agitated at this monstrosity. It is a national disgrace. I also recently received my first U. S. Census commemorative postcard. This creation is unbelievably dreadful. There are no words adequate for this visual outrage. - o - Reports seem to indicate that business is very good going into 1966 in all collecting fields. The coin slump was investor-speculator not collector. One of the surprise increases is the $5 Liberty gold which has jumped from around $17 to $20 in extra fine to uncirculated. The margin on common date gold is very small and the buying prices have gone up in proportion. With the $10 Liberty gold in extra fine running some $26, this denomination and design as well as the two $20 gold series remain a good buy. The extra money over and above the price of the $5 is fully backed by actual bullion value at $25 an ounce. LuVerne Folks Moving To St. Benedict LUVERNE - A farewell party was held at the Town Hall for Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Green, who are moving to St. Benedict.
