4-Algeno (10.) Upp«r D«j Moinft* Thursday, August 4, 1966 m^jjj^jjj^g^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^•^^^^^ FROM THE ATTIC... ... TO THE VAULT (Your Hobby - And Your Neighbor's) By Dick Palmer ALL STAR CAST IN "STAGECOACH' NOW PLAYING ALGONA THEATRE A recent ad in Linn's offered Mat was termed the largest holding In the world of the Tipex .and SPA souvenir sheets issued In 1936 and 1937. The Tipex Sheet contained four reproductions of previously-issued stamps for a face value of 12 cents and the SPA sheet reproduced the 10- cent denomination of the U. S. Park series. Certainly one would hope that the holding is the world's largest. The two issues are priced in quantities per 10, 100, 1,000, 10,000, and even 100,000. At the 100,000 rate, the Tipex is 32 1/2? and the SPA is 14?. It is quite apparent, I think, that this has not been a very successful investment. The price on the retail level has been stagnant for some years so nothing has been earned. Indeed, with this reserve plus the sum total of all the lesser holdings, one could question whether either item is really worth the current retail level. Nearly every U. S. collection of any significance has both so the stocks must be worked off on the basis of new collector demand and that will take quite an Increase in collectors. Any significant jump in retail prices will bring out these holdings so it would not appear that much can be expected from these for many years to come. The ad suggests investment opportunity, of course, but this is the type of unrealistic optimism that only a seller would entertain. "Please bail me out" would be a more appropriate title and at those prices a degree of buyer charity would certainly be involved. - o - I was looking over the prices received at the Kossuth Coin Club show auction. These lists are useful in indicating current collector interest. Even though some lots were bought back by the owners, the price indicates i the competitive level from the ! bidders. Near or over retail • was reached on offerings of Fly- 1 ing Eagle cents, one lot of Indians, \ 1955 Franklin halves, U. S. proof sets, 2 1/2 dollar gold, and some of the cheaper silver dollars. A BU Iowa Centennial half brought $18 while an uncirculated but no luster specimen brought $15. Fair prices resulted from the more expensive lots of silver dollars, some of the Canadian material and the large size U. S. paper. The weak areas were the dimes in the better condition, particularly some lovely uncir- culated Mercury specimens. An 1883 AU Liberty without cents brought $13 which was a very good buy and another bargain was the key 1925 Canadian nickel at $18. Specimens in lesser grades are usually priced at over $30 In the bourse. On the average, both buyers and sellers should have been satisfied with the results as the price level was about midway between what a dealer would pay and his retail price. This is fundamentally what you would expect from an auction or there would really be no purpose in having one. - o - At the time of this writing, which is in late June since I will be in school for a time in July, I am awaiting delivery of a set of The Great Books of the Western World. This involves a case and some 54 volumes. My eye has been roaming around the areas of the house that I usually frequent trying to figure out just where they will go. I want them placed for convenient use but my desire for convenience exceeds the available space. So what that is in the room must go and where ? People who casually visit often marvel at the space and storage areas. What they don't realize is that when you have space, you don't throw away. And books seem to keep accumulating whether you give them away or not. Don't envy us our room. There isn't any and I still don't know where to put the Great Books. Gets Insurance Co.
