Upper DM Mointt thurcday, May 5, 1966 ^^^^^^^^^l^^glj^^^jj^^^l^^^j^^^^i^^^ail^^jg^^jil^^^m Bl^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^P^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ FROM THE ATTIC... ...TO THE VAULT (Your Hobby - And Your Neighbor'*) By Dick Palmer DeGeeter-Torkelson Wed at Bancroft Coin collectors would get a chuckle or so out of an auction list that appeared in Linn's Stamp Weekly. This particular dealer usually has a section on coins and currency and he usually lists a minimum bid. I can't believe that he is so completely unaware of actual market values. Many Linn readers, however, may be and hence are willing to take his word for it. A minimum bid certainly should represent a level significantly below normal retail or why both with an auction at all. I might also add that his description leaves much to be desired. For example, we have a 1964 Canadian dollar described as "circulated mint condition, very fine." The starting level is $5, which is twice as much as the usual retail for a gem specimen. The complete un- circulated 1965 set of dollars with all five types has the modest start of $70 which is better than twice most lists. Sometimes a stamp auction is a good place to get coins but certainly not here. - o Coin World also had a notice of bankruptcy proceedings for Ottawa Coins Ltd. of Canada. This firm was one of the big advertisers with full page ads and lots of tips on certain investment material. In fact, they consented to help you turn your funds into sure profits. Well, they seem to have some $40,000 in assets to satisfy some $200,000 in claims. Looks like they bought high and then suddenly there was no place to sell. - o World Coins had an interesting BRADY Field Cultivators} with true 6" or 9" shank spacing MODELS FOR EFFECTIVE WEED CONTROL AND SUPERIOR SEEDBED PREPARATION Pick any one of 3 Brady Field Cultivators to fit your own farming needs—and then watch this rugged brute go to work!

BANCROFT -Rita Katherine DeGeeter and Larry E. Torkelson were married in an 11 a.m. ceremony April 23 at St. John's Catholic Church in Bancroft. The Rev. Msgr Joseph H. Schultes was officiating minister for the double ring nuptials. Two hundred guests attended the reception la the church hall following the ceremony. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Screal DeGeeter of Bancroft. The groom Is the son of Mr. and Mrs. O. E. Torkelson of Sioux Falls, S. D. Susan DeGeeter of Des Molnes, Iowa was her sister's maid of honor and Deede Gerloff of Sioux Falls was bridesmaid. Jamt'S Varid»r Woude and Delmer Kool, both of Rock Rapids, Iowa, were best man and groomsman respectively. The newlyweds are taking a wedding trip to the Southern states 3nd then will be at home in Sioux Falls where both are employed. The bride, a graduate of St. Joseph's Sthool of Nursing in Sioux City, Iowa, Is employed at the Veterans Hospital. The groom Is employed In the engineering department of the South Dakota Department of Highways. James,' Little Rock, to. "The Golden Age," read by Lucille Seegebarth.

The United States is the major market and what we do here is a highly important factor in the over-all price picture. Other areas of strength are Canada, Great Britain, Australia, and New Zealand. These lands, of course, generate considerable demand for their own coinage and that of the Empire. However, the roll and bag business is primarily ours and so are the risks. We are also the main market for the recent over-priced proofs. In my last column, I noted the young man who was trying to sell the French special mint set at the original Issue price. An ad from the Eastern dealer is now offering them In quantity at a fraction below the original price. Likely they will go yet lower until they are absorbed at the level of the regular coins. - o One of the dealers at Storm Lake did some coin framing. He made from the various U. S. series, such as Liberty Head nickels, assorted designs in small frames for desk or wall. It was something different and provides an interesting use for those extra duplicates that seem to accumulate. - o I could not pin down any particular demand trend at Storm Lake. Some dealers were seeking certain half dollar dates in the Franklin series and it seemed to me that there was more than usual interest in foreign minor coins. My neighbor sold quite a few. plastic mounting bpards for both half and silver dollars and he did quite a brisk business in the Donlon catalog for small bills. Certainly many more are now watching this series and it is but a short step from watching to collecting. Forest City will likely provide a better indication of collector interest. - o At the time this column was written, it appears certain that the Kossuth Coin Club will sponsor a one-day show at the K of C hall Sunday, June 26. 1 will be writing more of this later, but there will be an auction, an ex hibit by club members with one guest exhibitor, and the bourse will be invitational in nature representing some of the favorite dealers of the members. These dealers will be guests of the club and will not be charged for their tables. An admittance donation will entitle the donor to a chance on a $10 gold piece and there will be other door prizes as well, so mark this date. And here is a good chance for you non-collectors to come and find out what the hobby is all about. - o The new dog stamp is a happy one although the animal obviously is the "jump on you with muddy feet' type. The Indiana is one of the better state commemoratives primarily because of its attractive coloring. Late in May, an 11 cent post card will be issued for overseas air mail. It will have a "visit America" theme and will have several pictures of famous points of natural beauty plus an urban view. It will certainly be different but I doubt that it will be greatly used since the air letter sheet is also 11 cents and there is much more writing room there. Recently I obtained several world specimens of air sheets - a growing phase of philatelic interest.
