FROM THE ATTIC... ...TO THE (Your Hobby - And Your Neighbor's) By Dick Palmer The recent article in the Des Moines Register on Bentonsport might have noted that the community was one of the^ralaUve.--:: ly few that Issued'currency in the 1850's. I have a well- circulated specimen of the $1 note and I believe that Lewis Ferguson has additional denominations. The story of the resettlement effort and the cold war among the few inhabitants presents a sad and incomprehensible picture. The deliberate piling of Junk to spite a neighbor still leaves the question as to what kind of a person can stand to look at the junk himself. Having the gentleman in question as the president of the local improvement association boarders on the ludicrous. The modern saga of Bentonsport is a violation of common sense and an affront to history, -o- In seeking causes of the coin shortage, the factor of saving should not be overlooked. 1 received from Home Federal a - very useful and attractive bank with sections for $15 in halves, $9 in quarters, $5 in dimes, and $1.50 in nickels. There is also a place for currency which could just as well be used for cents. Banks affect people in different ways. Personally, 1 am inclined to raid and with this one this is easily done. Many will, however, not touch the bank until the full amounts are registered. In normal day<»to-day change, half dollars.'th'e' critical coin in this area, are not frequently found. Depending on how many of these banks are out and how many are actually being used, a substantial number of halves could be tied up, pending the stack's growth to the magic $15 figure and even then the bank may remain untouched until the other sections reach the top. If you consider all the institutions that encourage saving via coin banks and all the groups that raise funds via the "save all your nickels" method, then the problem has a much broader base than the activities of coin hoarders for collecting and speculation. Here is just one of the many examples of where the economic functions of money collide. The reason for coins is to facilitate fractional exchange and not for saving i. e, a store of purchasing power, but by using them for the latter monetary function, we curtail the former and basic function. -o- Many years ago, I had a bank that registered the amount on a dial face, but the bank wouldn't open until the total amount had been reached. There was no key. 1 can remember patiently working' flat on my back at the coin slot which was on the bottom and the feeling of achievement when a coin finally came thru. This was a form of legal robbery and a triumph of boy over mechanical dictation. On one occasion, 1 decided that 1 really needed all that was in the bank so 1 inserted the assorted coins that I had accumulated but they didn't register enough. My mother finally consented to supervise the "borrowing" of father's small coin collection to register the necessary total. It was, I am sure, with a great sense of relief that she saw the total mount to the needed figure to send the treasure forth. Father didn't look at the coins very often, but no doubt that would have been the night and I am sure that he would have waxed most eloquent about having them in my bank, -o- February is the month for the Kossuth Coin Club public auction, March has the five club coin show at Jefferson, April brings the well established Forest City exhibition and bourse, and the Episcopal ladies will sponsor an antique and coin show in Algona in May. -fl- it has been so long since I found a cent worth keeping that I often forget to check them. Yet, just last week a check of about 50 of them turned up a presentable 1910-S. It does pay to look at all of them, -o- The death of Sir Winston Churchill will bring a series of postal triljutes thruout the Western world and the Commonwealth. 1 hope the United States will join in commemorating his many services to the cause of freedom. We have discontinued our postal series honoring Champions of Freedom, but Sir Winston merits an issue of his own.
