^— *m ~^^^- -^i^r- ^^^^-^^—•^B^—^P"^~^^^P-^^^^~ FROM THE ATTIC... ... TO THE VAULT (Your Hobby - And Your Neighbor's) By Dick Palmer DEAN MARTIN IN "THE SILENCERS" STARTS SUNDAY ALGONA THEATRE The auction committee has finished checking over the lots for the June 26 Kossuth County Coin Club show at the KC Hall. In addition to some relatively inexpensive material, the sale will offer some gem 1955 Franklin halves, 1938D Walking Liberty halves, two Iowa and one Illinois commemorative half dollars, two nice $2 1/2 gold pieces, plus some Canadian coins and United States paper money. It is a well diversified offering and, while the committee has done its best even to the extent of not agreeing with the owners in all cases, the .ultimate verdict must come'from the collector; so all the lots will be available for inspection prior to the sale which will begirt at or near 3. Several door -prizes will be offered, with chances selling at 25 cents each or 5 for a dollar. The major pri.ze will be a very nice 1893 $10 gold piece and you need not be present to win the main prize. • It should also be noted that though a number may be drawn for one of the lesser prizes, the number will be returned for the main drawing. Remember, this is an invitational bourse. The dealers are here at the invitation of the club and represent gentlemen that members of the club regard highly for their courtesy and business ethics. Each dealer furnished two tables at no charge. The club hopes to meet its expenses from the modest charge made to the sellers in the auction and, hopefully, the funds from the drawings will exceed the cost of the gold. A $10 gold piece is- priced from $28 to $32. -All other prizes are donations from club members. - o The May 16 National Observer had a very interesting feature. article on the art of Deltiology, postcard collecting. The reference here is to privately produced (for the most part) picture post cards. Sometimes picture cards are issued or those with collections based on a specific exposition, such as the 1892-93 Columbus. - o By now, some cards do bring rather high prices. The layman would have no readily available means of determining which ones. Not all special fair cards are scarce and not all cards from the same fair are necessarily in the same value bracket. Certain limited editions from certain publishing houses would also be much in demand, providing the house has a specialized collector following. The article mentions a New York collector (the hobby seems to be centered in the city in an* organizational sense) who has 50,000 cards from Raphael Tuck, and Son, a famous ' English postcard publisher. The collection is valued at $25,000, an average of 50 cents a card. The .backbone of the hobby, however, in swapping or picking . through lots at 10 to 15 cents a card. Many antique dealers will have a few bundles of. cards. - o - Collections are often formed around themes such as courthouses, trains, cars, aircraft, main streets, .ships, or just old Americana. Comic cards have a following as well. Some seek selected types of cards, such as those made of leather or those having a heavy Of couse, many will collect views, etc., relating to a state.or their local area. It is .quite possible you might have a unique card relating to your community, but this would have no -special significance on a national-level, it belongs in the community anyway. I recently looked over a rather large lot of cards and picked out a comic design type with the slogan "Come on over to Kossuth County Fair." 'The card was mailed from here to Brilt in Sept., 1910, and the cancel reads Dubuque and C.hamb Railroad Post Office. The card was published by Talbot-End Co, of by governments primarilyrfoi«<''- De £Molnes. fTdoufif'that'verf expositions of cine type or an- many of these would be around other.

Four collectors, then, might seek the card for four different reasons and, of course, there might be someone. Interested in the publishing company, If I had more time, lam sure there were other local interest items as well. Post cards are also a good source for the flag type of cancel, which is a rather .popular field of specialization. Some of the smaller- comnrinities would be rather elusive. Yes,'that old bundle.of cards in the attic certainly has Interest and at least a nominal value.
