Upp»r DM Jame* Bond in "Thunderball" * pp epent Thunday at Algona theatre the Storm Lake show mentioned In a previous column foPc/April 16-17 will be held at ithe armory with the approri- mife* hours from 9 to 9 Saturday and« 10 to 4 Sunday. Nothing was said in the matefial I received about special provisions for exhibits, though mention was made about awards, 'for the best displays* This may well be an entirely botfrse iffaif; with the awards given to the displays and material offered by the dealers. The Spencer show Was of this type with all tables rented s6 all usually offered material for sale. I will be at both the Storm Lake show and the Forest dity annual show the following Week and would be pleased to Meet any of my readers. - o - Spends [ merit. I We are now on the subject qf money and banking in American history, so your students are exploring the mysteries of commodity and nominal money, plus viewing a few specimens from the past. Sana, our ex- Change student, brought some Swedish currency and coins, fheir bills represent three fea- tjures often found in foreign currency and coins. They are multi- Colored, the paper is watermarked and, in some cases, the tiesign is a portrait, and there is a thin metal strip running through the paper which, at first glance, looks like a gold. Several of the cOins have the design etched into the metal rather than Jin high relief. Our only coin using this type of design was the $2 1/2 Indian gold piece. One of the most difficult concepts for students as well as the general public is understanding money only as a device to facilitate exchange and having 'no value other than the goods and services it will command. This, oft course, is the nature ;of our'current red seal notes land the 1963 series Federal Re- 1 serve Notes, which have no re- jdemption pledge in any specific commodity. Frequently, it is I stated *ftm»-the*moneyi;tiien;%•££ on faith in the govern-"' For U. S. Notes this is I true, but Federal Reserve Notes are in' part backed by the loan collateral held by member banks. A portion of the federal issues are based on government bonds. Incidentally, the figures given for our federal debt involve some double counting. The bond sold to the Federal Reserve System is counted and this bond authorizes the issuance of Federal Reserve Notes but the notes are considered government obligations, too, so they also are counted. In other words, a $1000 bond sold to the Federal Reserve System may end up as $2000 in debt. The bonds create money, rather than make use of existing supplies, to again answer a frequently 'asked question: All bills issued by the federal government or through the banking system under federal authority are still valid at the bank, This includes the old National Bank currency with the name of a bank on the bill. The major difference is that any previous pledges on the bills for gold redemption are now void. Pledges for silver are still valid, but you must be in Washington or San Francisco in order to have them executed. . - o - A well-known dealer in foreign coins reports on his latest list that there has been little interest in the various Andorra proof "coins'V so ne nas P riced some below the so-called market. This is a welcome sign that collectors of coins may be becoming somewhat critical of the rather loose application of the word. With so much attractive material, I don't see why coin collectors would pay $30 to $40 for a modern, monopoly-controlled issue that, at the best, can be considered as no more than an attractive medal. - o- The 5th variety for the 1965 Canadian silver dollar is now being advertised. There is a presumed npedium«size bead involved, but the main difference is the last jewel oh the crown, which is just barely connected in the design to the mount, |t would take, a glass to note the variety and certainly » is Just as evident as many of the design variations that are listed for stamps. But the initial price tag is around $18 and I wonder if this rather minor difference would bring that much possession pleasure. I think the previous 4 varieties are fairly well established, but the future of the 5th seems doubtful to me. - o- This column noted some time ago that stamp issues of the United Nations were about ready to boom, due to the rising interest in Europe. The boom Is here and buying ads for mint are frequent for about the first 50 numbers and the first air letter sheet. The used are responding as well, particularly the key#38. Dealer buying ads, even in used, are now higher than the wholesale of Just a few months ago. Any UN material, particulary that relating to UN military activities, has a fine future.
