Thortday, Moreh 4, •~^m*r- -~^^r^ -^^f -^^- •• •" ™ ^—^ ^— - — FROM THE ATTIC... ... TO THE VAULT (Yew Hdbby - And Your N»t«hber'») By D!ck Polmtf While there did not appear to be many collectors from any distance, members of the Kossuth Coin Club turned out in good strength for their public auction Feb. 21. 95 lots were ottered, representing most U. S. coin series with a few Canadian Hems. It is always difficult to judge prices since owners could bid back their own material. We may assume that all owners were willing to let their coins go at the retail trend level and 32 lots sold at or above trends. 1 would guess that some 75 to 80 percent of the lots were actually sold. Prices were surprisingly good on individual Lincoln and Indian items in the lower grades. Medium priced coins in the high and uncircu- lated grades generally did well. The Jefferson nickel section showed a marked weakness and I suspect that many of the lots ended up back in the owner's hands. The bid price for a Peace Dollar set, minus four dates with a trend value of $144 was only $50. If the trend has any validity at all, a dealer should welcome purchase at this price. 1 didn't examine the set so there may have been some grading errors but I have always telt that there Just isn't the collector support for this series. A close reading of current advertising will show that many dealers and speculators are try- Ing to get their holdings into collector hands. A gentleman In the West with 50 bags in the bank ($50,000) Is quite eager to pro rata the bank loan they support. The Individual dollar offerings brought about 70% of trends. The single gold coin brought virtual retail. Gold always seems to go well and seldom is bought for less than dealer offerings. Canadian silver dollar prices were strong and minor coins erratic. While some owners were no doubt disappointed In the results, I am sure that many were quite satisfied. It seems to me that several such auctions could be held during the year, but I would suggest the minimum bid device, which would then preclude the owners bidding on their own mat- erial. Everyone would then know the exact situation and every sale would be a true market test. - o - I had a letter from Ida Larson, 105 1/2 So. North Ave., Fairmont, Minn., relating quite an inventory of material in several collecting fields. While she does not intend to hold a public sale, she is considering private disposal of some areas. If you have any special wants In carnival, custard, vasallne, camphor or cut glass, or are inclined toward Haviland, Bavarian or 4 Crown china, you might write to Ida to see what is available. She also mentioned antique miniature lamps, foreign plates going back to 1857, and various items relating to World Fairs. I was Interested in a straight razor from St. Louis with an etching of the USS Missouri on the blade. Yes, there are stamps and coins too, but I judge these will be retained. - o - I understand the newest edition of the Frledburg Paper Currency catalog is available at the public library, so If you are interested in this field, get your name on the circulation list. A very fine world paper currency identification book has been compiled by George Sten of California. The book is particularly useful for Chinese, Russian and van ous Balkln notes. The Paper Money Society is undertaking the important assignment of listing and evaluating the numerous obsolete bank and business notes of the various states prior to our Federal currency in 1863. This undertaking Itself, to say nothing of the end result, will greatly increase the interest in and value of these attractive and interesting Issues. - o - The Algona antique and coin show will be held at the K C hall April 30 and May A.:rlt ,is sponsored by .ladles of St. Thomas Episcopal church. I hope to be able to keep you posted on the dealers that will be our guests. > 36 Complete 4-H Winter Camp Weekend Thirty-seven Kossuth County 4-H Junior leaders attended winter camp for three days at the State 4-H Camping Center near Madrid, Iowa.
