I rill hare a table at both sho^s my yearly ootiag - so stop by aad say hello. - o - Jaaet van dea Berg of Worth- iagtoQ, Ohio, specializes in oddities and off beat material largely pertaining to stamps arv| postal history. Wbea I seek something oausaal, she is as apt to hare it as anyone in the country and these iafreqaeatly offered bits of the past usually sell out quickly. Her latest list contained a limited supply of the eagerly sought, but seldom found, coin aad stamp post cards that originated in Germany in the early 1900*s. Tbe privately - produced coin cards contain on the front in proper color on a -H-eH executed embossing, the current circulating coins of the nation concerned with a foreign exchange table, -^ncg 11 countries are on the table, I assume that the complete set would include all 11. Seven of these were on the list: Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Portugal, Peru, and Sweden-Norway, one nation at mat time. I must now correct my previous assumption as I note that the tables are not tbe same on all tbe cards. You really have to see these cards to appreciate tbe workmanship. An interesting collections goal would be to match the coins on tbe cards with the actual specimen. Some of tbe coins show the dates. Tbe numbers range from seven to eleven. Tbe only person' in this area that I know of who has managed to collect a few of these is Gene Morris of Forest City. He was proudly displaying them as well be might at last year's show, in fact, that was what reminded me of them and I have been watching for them ever since. - o- Equally attractive are the stamp cards which present tbe full series current in 1905 again embossed in full color. The U. S. card would, of course, be in heavy demand here. I settled for tbe Italian card as aa example of tbe series. I am rather certain U I vere to send off another order to her ( received these about 4 days prior to tbe writing of this column) that site »oald be sold out. Soch was tbe case Then I iaqtdred about tbe European encased postage stamps that were on her last list As Is so frequently the case, these assorted gems are not particularly expensive. Location is tbe problem. - o- I noted an interesting trading offer in Cola World, a concerned aa 18T7S U. S. Trade dollar tfyat was used in smuggling opium. This dollar was quite thick. I don't kaor if tbe specimen Is one that had been hollowed oat or a counterfeit to start with bat tbe reverse contained a section that would open to provide access to tbe hidden drag. Clever, aad an interesting bit of Americana. - o- Ordering is apparently quite brisk for tbe Treasury Department's special mint sets offered at £4. I haven't seen one yet, so I don't know if tbe extra spit and polish is actually worth tbe rather generous surcharge over face or not The price has brought considerable protest. However, our government is quite modest in tbe bite it seeks aad tbe criticism might better be directed at others. Tbe Republic of Panama is to be tbe first - aad I fear not tbe last Latin American country to offer actual proof sets. This 1966 offering will contain the silver Balboa. Panamanian money is on par with that of tbe United States so the total face value of tbe set is $1.91 and tbe bargain new issue price is a mere $15. Our late proof sets used to be offered for less than $3. Care apparently is being taken to ensure that there will be no restrikes and no inventory clearance sales to undermine tbe_ Initial offering. Wen, tbere it- is and buy it if yoff'must, bat'' this column urges you to restrain your enthusiasm and take only one. Don't buy it for investment. Actually if collectors would stay clear of these absurd prices, they might be able in the future to get proof sets at a proper price level. There are over 9 million teenagers in the U. S. secondary schools - an increase of over 43% in the past decade. Last year, local advertisers invested 56% more dollars in newspaper advertising during the fan back- to-school months.
