*-Algoftfi (la.) Upper D« Molnn Thursday, April 21, 1964 ^^^^ ^"^^ ^^•^ ^ ^ ^^^^^^ ^•^^^^^^^^^^^^•^^•••^^^^^^^^^••s^ FROM THE ATTIC... ... TO THE VAULT (ftur Htbby - AN Ytwr Neighbor's) ly Dick Palmtr 1 received a letter notn a reader relative to my comments In defense of the government ruling that the proposed $20 gold piece of Canada would not be admitted to the United States. The letter pointed out that the dollars spent for the numerous overpriced proof sets put out by an assortment of countries and groups could also be exchanged by foreign governments for gold so why not eliminate them too or else allow the Canadian gold to enter: This writer has on several occasions urged collectors to boycott foreign sets that are priced excessively over face. Evidence is mounting that the U. S. market is certainly not expanding for them as many are now selling for less than the original issue price. Gold, however, presents a different situation. The demand will be higher and the willingness to pay a substantial premium over face will be stronger. If the sale of the Canadian $20 were a success in the United States - and it would be - then other countries would follow suit including those who now cannot do so simply because they haven't the available gold. True, they could use their dollar reserves to obtain it at the official price but these dollars are needed for our goods and, in some cases, now serve as indirect gold reserves for the nations concerned. Allowing the $20 coin to enter would open the flood gate because our reserves would then furnish the raw material necessary to mint the coin all of which would make for a very profitable form of raiding. The government bluntly stated that the "coin" was being minted in the hope of sales to the United States. Certainly it Is not Intended as a circulating media in Canada. If we are to have gold, then let us 'Use our own in our own country and let our government receive the premium. I don't wish to appear to be a perpetual critic of Numismatic News, but this publication is not at all adverse to tooting its own horn so public comment is quite in order. The first issue in April contained the special section of Spring Trends with some editorial matter on the care, etc. of evaluation. I have not checked in detail the sections on United States and Canada but did turn my attention to the sections on proof and world crowns. - o We would normally expect such a seasonal survey to be undated both on content and price. Certainly new coins should be added as minted. This is not a serious omission though one wonders why the 1965 France 10 franc and the Churchill crown are not Included. The general pricing, however,: shows a notable lack of editing. Indeed, one wonders if the editors of the paper and the distinguished board of dealers ever read the paper or look at their own price lists. The Maldive Island proof set which was re struck still has a $200 price tag though an ad in the very same paper prices at $35 which is the new re strike price. No note is made of the restrlke, incidentally, and this was done sometime ago. The 1000 yen Japanese Olympic crown Is listed at the early speculative price of $11.75 with current retail seldom running over $6.50. The 1947 MacArthur peso is listed at $9.00 but the set of two coins regularly runs from $5.50 to $6.00. The board somehow has managed to ignore completely the market crash on the Columbia 1956 peso. With a trend of $40 we come to the retail reality of around $24 and it can be bought for less. The very attractive 1964 10 kr. of Norway hasn't trended at $4.50 for a year, Well, we could go on and on. The trend survey isn't necessary when you have price lists but the purpose is to have a ready reference and a standard basis for trading. The editions will duly reflect market changes, I submit that neither Implication is correct which makes the entire section misleading and rather pointless. To toot the horn Js the face of such gross errors In inexcusable. Some letters to the editor on this point might give us in the future what we pay for. This is the same publication, incidenUy, which says that it isn't desirable to publish every week because there isn't time for adequate research or study in depth. In view of what was done in the three month trend interval, I guess there wouldn't be. - o And then there is that dealer who advertised the Maldive Island set at $35 with the statement "only 250 Issued" which was true of the originals but not of the restrikes which is why the price is $35. Oh, dear. This has been a bad week.

Make Strong Communities "And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us." — John 17:13 The quality of mercy is shown clearly through the life of Christ upon earth. And yet some of us do not clearly understand the meaning of the word. We think of mercy, perhaps, as something to be received from the hands of a master, a king, or a victor in battle. We do not realize that we, too, can evidence the quality of mercy in our daily fives. Look to your dictionary. Rate yourself on such things' as forebearance; compassion; willingness to forgive and be kind; leniency. Mercy is something you may extend to others as you expect it for yourself.
