TO THE VAULT (Your Hobby - And Your Neighbor*!) By Dick Palmer VIKING OIL CO. ROY STOFFEL, Owner PHONE 295-3749 "GOLD BOND STAMPS ON GAS PURCHASES AT STATION" My first view of the 1965 dated mint sets left rne much unimpressed, as indeed was the owner. I suspect there is a limit as to what can be done with the clad coins anyway and these sets, of course, are not proofs nor are they claimed as "proof- like". In this particular set, the half dollar did show a high degree of polish, but there were some digs. Perhaps the owners will get $4 worth of pleasure from them, but I think a set of selected uncirculated specimens would do as well leaving the $3.00 premium forotherpur- chases. Of course, finding the 19G!5 dated half may not be easy. I have received exactly one so far in change. - o - Coin World recently contained an ad for the 1965 double dot cent. You had your choice ofun- circulated for $17.50, brilliant uncirculated at $19.50, choice brilliant uncirculated for $30 and a select gem brilliant uncircul- ated for a mere $47.50. Without commenting on the desirability of the variety at these prices, this range of grades borders on the absurd. Could a cent really acheive such heights of technical perfection? Must we now consider a BU coin to be essentially an inferior specimen and now concern ourselves with the grading distinction between "choice" and "select"? Well, I think not. My bet is that many sales were made from the ad. It would be interesting to be around when a buyer of a NEW HIGHER RATE EARN OUR from the Greatest thing growing-Passbook-Handy Savings!

"select gem" becomes a seller and has the jo'o of convincing with a nearly $30 premium to protect. - o - While making the rounds after commencement, John Fraser gave me an interesting item of local history. It was a check for one cent from the receiver of the County Savings Bank payable at the Kossuth County State Bank. The check was dated Sept. 11, 1929, and the occasion was dividend number #3 for 10%. John said that he had a small account in the bank and it must have totaled 10 cents at the time the bank closed Its doors. I guess John was willing to contribute his dime to someone else since none of his were presented for payment. - o The trip to Daytona Beach was rather uneventful as far as hobbies were concerned. I underestimated driving time so there was little reserve for shop stopping. One night was spent in Jackson, Tenn., the home of Casey Jones. The hour was late to visit the Jones museum, but Jackson also had an interesting establishment called the Country Store. It is a collection of assorted antiques largely relating to merchandising, but not entirely, plus many modern food specialities. Your entrance is announced by a cow bell and there is an old fashioned post office window for mailing cards. I noted a variety of patent medicines and many old containers for products still current. Coke fans would be interested in the Coke overhead hanging lamp and the clock with a coke ad. This product is probably the most active in the collecting field. One rather unusual item was some Philadelphia snuff packaged in a bladder. The slip said that only a few were known to now exist. Certainly there is much to see here but allow yourself plenty of time a's there is no particular order so anything might tunr up anywhere. - o - I don't know that travel suggestions are very helpful, but for the record, the Maple Leaf Motel in Springfield, Mo. and theThun- derbird Motel in Jackson both offer an excellent combination of facilities for the money. And the tariff is most reasonable. Two characteristics of Mississippi are a law requiring a stop at all rail crossing and city, town, village, and crossroad speed zones very generously extended beyond the area of human habitation. A third characteristic, however, is the fact that the natives pay little or no attention to said law or said zones. In fact, they don't seem to be very concerned with yellow lines, either. Driving, therefor, can be reasonably rapid and, at times, adventureous. My next report will contain some info on the Daytona antique shops. I noted a small row of same on highway 92. - o - Stamps are now being boomed as investments like coins. Remember, the material that becomes valuable is the material that is not saved. Kossuth Cafes Honored For Retarded Aid Kossuth County has received a special service award from the Iowa Association for Retarded Children. The recognition comes as a result of participation in the Iowa Restaurant Associations' "Coffee Day", on Friday and Saturday, March 18-19. The following Kossuth places cooperated; Algona - Algona Bowling Lanes, Algona Hotel, Blue & White Cafe, Charlie's Supper Club, Doll House Cafe, Honsbruch Drugstore; Johnson House Cafe, Johnson's Maid-Rite, Larry's Recreation, Ludwig's Cafe, Chrome Cafe, Tall Paul's, and Van's Cafe.

Lakota - Stroebel's Cafe. TUonka - Corner Drive Inn and John and Gen's Cafe. West Bend - The Villager. Whittemore - Hi-way Inn and Home Cafe. Restaurants of Iowa served coffee "on the house." Instead of paying for coffee, guests were invited to help Iowa's mentally retarded by placing a donation in a special container. Earl Revell, Executive Secretive for the Iowa Restaurant Association stated that the proceeds will be given to the Iowa Association for Retarded Children. This will take place during the Restaurant Association's annual convention In October. Private Frank A. Mueller, son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur E.
