FROM THE ATTIC... ... TO THE VAULT (Your Hobby - And 4 Y6ur Neighbor 7 *) By Dlek Palmtr The 5th annual coin and currency show for the Clarion Coin Collectors has been announced for Oct. 29-30 at the I.O.O.F. building, two 75 lot auctions will be conducted, one at 8 Saturday and the other at 1:30 Sunday. There will be a guest speaker and some information on coin and currency cleaning as additional program features. The bourse will have 15 dealers from Iowa and Minnesota and, judging from the past, these gentlemen will present extensive material in nearly all numismatic fields. Usually some material is available for stamp collectos as well. The exhibit section will award trophies for first and second places in United States Coins, Canadian, United States Gold, United States Currency, Foreign and Ancient, Medals - Tokens and Specialized, and Junior Division. A Clarion Best of Show trophy will also be awarded, a most difficult choice for the judges. The usual hours will prevail for the public, 10 to 10 Saturday and 10 to 5 Sunday. As a special souvenir for the' event, a limited number of serially numbered wooden nickels will be offered. Do mark this date on your calendar as the Clarion show is always a good one. If you really want to browse and chat in relative leisure and comfort, I would suggest arrival during Saturday afternoon to shop the bourse prior to the auction. - o - The Kossuth Coin Club started off the fall season with a very brief business meeting, there being no business, and a 50 lot auction which provided considerable variety. I believe the great majority of the lots found new homes rather than going back to the original owners. Prices on relatively common date Lincolns were low which perhaps indicates that either they are already well- hoarded (and I believe they are) or they are not currently a spe- 0ulaUVej^Vo>ite. ' Many item s w^ent at''average retail or over and most brought better than a normal dealer offering. On the surface this might not appear to have been so but some material really didn't grade as high as the owner indicated so the price correctly should be related to the lower grade. It is convenient to offer and fun to buy a lot 'of several coins but both buyer and seller would profit if the lots were better described as to condition and average retail. It is most difficult for the auctioneer to make this estimate and it is difficult to bid intelligently without it. True, there is time for examination but hardly enough for a full job or for retail analysis on 50 lots. A good to fine classification will suffice only If all the coins are in approximately the same price range but this often isn't so, If the better dates are fine then the seller should so Indicate. Otherwise the buyer should assume and probably correctly that the fine class applies only to the cheaper coins. Two rolls of 1965 nickels brought over $3 and a 1966 Kennedy half brought 80 cents. I have seen only one 1965 Kennedy and here are the 1966 ones. The 1965 nickel premium comes from freak distribution and the Kennedy are'still being hoarded In spite of the reduced silver content. I wonder how long it will be before these hoarded items will be tos- ed on the market. Soon we may see offerings of packs of $2 bills. And they no doubt will be bought at a premium by "collectors" who prior to the discontinuance never thought about them at all. - o - One young collector had a beautiful half cent piece. In basically extra fine or better condition. The only defect were some scratches that had been etched on the reverse under but horizontal' to "half cent". At first, I didn't even notice them. The face of the coin was perfect. Becuase of this defacing, the coin had been purchased at about one fourth of the normal extra fine price. I was asked if this was a good buy. In my opinion, it certainly was. The attractiveness of the coin was in no way effected and, really, isn't that a major factor in collecting? The same coin in a very good to very fine grade would have cost more than this collector. , paid and not'be nearly as nice, an appearing, specimen. I would take his any day. Let those who insist on pristine coins and stamps pay the price for the pleasure that it brings them and let less critical collectors enjoy their rejects. But why was I asked If it were a good buy? If a hobby item you bought brings you satisfaction the day after you bought it and continues to do so, then it was a good buy.
