6-Algona (la.) Upper Dei Molnei Thursday, July 21, 1966 ^^^^^^^^•^^^^^^^^^^^^^^•^^^^^^^^•^••^^IW FROM THE ATTIC... ... TO THE VAULT (Your Hobby - And Your Ntlghbor'i) By Dick Palmer I had resolved on the Florida trip not to add anything in the antique line but good intentions often do not correspond with reality. In the fine Seabreeze area shop in Daytona, my eye was caught by a heavy compote piece with very light luster. The basic glass is deep amethyst with a grape pattern. The wear marks suggest that the piece also served when inverted as a stand for a large bowl. Perhaps that was the main purpose. A rather unusual addition to my somewhat slender collection. It was the only piece I saw that merited a second look in the shops I visited. - o - A recent ad in Linn's again points up the perils of hoarding. The ad is entitled Investors' Special but An Investor Unloading would be more to the point. 100 sheets of the 3 cent commemorative issued in 1939 for the San Francisco World's Fair with a total face value of $150.00 is offered for $165.00. That would not be a very attractive rate of return and there is no particular reason to believe that the future is very bright for this stamp. You can buy $107 worth of 3 cent commemoratives in full sheets for $100 and, if the plate block is of no particular interest, $100 will buy $110 in scrap stamps. Here is a 10% saving in the postal bill for anyone who has use for great quantities of 3 cent value. C38, the 5 cent airmail commemorative for New York City was a highly regarded investment item and speculation drove the price up as high as $12.50 a sheet, face value $5. I note that Stanley Gibbons, the retail guide for the hobby, lists it now at $10. However, here 50 sheets are offered at $300 or $6 a sheet. If the $10 retail figure was really in tune with demand, this lot should be bought by the trade. Actually, sheets often are sold at auction for $6.50. I wonder if the holder bought at face or loaded up at the higher level? Here again, the money invested in these sheets would have earned much more in a conventional saving institution. Turning a hobby into a business is a risky affair. The key is always who is buying and for what purpose. Evidence is mounting that several of the high flying UN issues of the past few months are about ready to take a crash landing. - o - Collector approval and that of the general public as well, I believe, will be overwhelming for the decision to use a religious theme for the annual Christmas stamp. None of the previous efforts have merited We invite you to compare with any competition! PUT CORN UP FAST in ANY BUILDING or CRIB Stan-Hoist's big, full, 21-inch cnrry-u-way makes short work of all your elevating jobs.

So. pf Algona Hotel — Algona, la, Visit our store todayl much enthusiasm but those of many foreign countrieshavebeen outstanding productions. I recently say two the special air letter sheets issued for the season by Australia. Certainly they were most appropriate for sending greetings abroad. Not all of our people are. Christians to be sure but no one is forced to use the stamps so no one would have any real cause for complaint yet I wouldn't be surprised at some legal challenge on the church-state question. - o - I recently received from Ida Larson for the Historical Society another World War 1 souvenir. It is the program for Victory Concert Tour of the 168th Infantry Regimental Band, Rainbow Division. Most of the members were listed with Iowa addresses tho none were from this , county. The concert was given in Algona on July 29,1919. - o - An item of interest to some collectors in the St. Augustine Ripley museum is a rather extensive display of wooden nickels. These items in round or square shape have been produced for years as advertising promotions and for celebrations and exhibitions as well. Many have a limited redemption time but some, if a store is involved, are always good in exchange for goods and services. Editions are limited and distribution is usually confined to the area involved. Not many of the older pieces would have survived. While not particularly valuable, a comprehensive collection would not be easy to build and it represents quite a challenge. Displays have often won awards including the best of show. If you find any in the odds and ends portions of the shops you visit, chances are you will run across a collecting friend sometime who would be very pleased to receive them. - o - The latest auction results from Herman Herst shows a strong market strength for encased postage stamps and paper fractional currency, items in demand by both coin and stamp collectors. U. S. proofs in very fine condition brought high percentages of catalog value as did most U. S. postal items. Prices were poor on many recent foreign items, including Vatican.
