4-*Aff»no (lo.) Upper DM Mo.nat Thurtdoy, March 25, 1965 HUM THE ATTIC... ... TO THE VAULT (Your Hobby - And Your Ntlghbor't) By Dick Polmtr First, an addition and correction to the show list recently submitted. Add Apr. 2? for the annual show of the Eagle Grove Coin Cluli at the Community Hall. The Alpona antique and coin show will l<e held at the VF\V hall, rather than the K of r. March 14 turned out to be a nice sunny day, so the 90 mile trip to Jefferson for the Mid- Iowa show was pleasant. The armory was well filled with exhibits, dealers and customers. 1 usually like to attend Saturday when it is less crowded but the weather man did not cooperate. The exhibits were superior to those of last year. The Best of Show award went to a presentation of Canadian. This was not the most valuable exhibit, but the material was presented in an outstanding manner. The center upright frame had a splendid colored portrait of the Queen with the Royal Visit medals and all the silver dollars Avoid the hullaballoo! Promises and a big-car name won't make a small car big. Buy a Chrysler. Shop the field, and you'll find some big-car names riding on small-car frames. We say, when you pay for a big car, get one —a Chrysler. Even our lowest-priced Newport has a 124" wheelbase—not just 115 (like those small cars we're talking about). So, don't fall for blarney-move up to Chrysler. We're making it very easy—almost half our Chrysler models this year are priced only a few dollars a month more than the most popular smaller cars. See us. We deliver. PERCIVAL MOTORS, INC. 800 So. Phillips - Algona, Iowa CIDAA minted during her reign. The remaining frames had several complete sets of various coin series, all tastefully presented. - o - The first place award for silver coins went to a series of frames that included the complete set of U.S. commemorative halves, including all varieties and mints. Everything was uncirculated an I you will seldom see this group complete. Indeed, the full potential is likely less than 2000. I have usually used black for goW and silver mounting. This gentleman used blue and the effect was excellent. He also had a fine showing of gold, which placed second in that category. This section included the seldom seen high relief $20 St. Gaudens design. He used red and black for the gold. - o - Currency was well represented with the first place exhibit mounted in red plastic. The basic intent of the showing was to present types of $1 bills, but there were many other interesting items as well, including the Lazy Two (numeral horizontal rather than vertical) and several large-size National Bank issues from Iowa sources. The second place winner had display facilities superior to the material. His upright clear plastic frames allowed viewing of both sides, but condition was very mixed, including quite inferior specimens. There were also some table frames, one of which contained a pile of Canadian notes. For some reason he also tossed in two very beat up specimens of current Mexican notes. In the middle of a frame of obsolete bank notes, he had a U.S. government Issue. I personally considered some of the other currency exhibits superior to this illogical presentation. - o An interesting display was presented of medaJspertainingto President Kennedy, Including the many issued by foreign governments. With a fine portrait of the President and an uncluttered presentation, this formed a very fine tribute to a beloved and admired world leader. - o The display I fussed about at Clarion was also here with added material and continued total chaos. My spelling leaves much to be desired as perhaps the column proofreaders can testify, but I don't believe I have ever goofed for a display. I would estimate the per cent of error to have been about 50. Only at an art show would such disorder win acclaim. - o Dealer offerings in currency were spotty, with much of the material overpriced for the condition, the exception being A and A Coins of Iowa City. These gentlemen, I think, are quite reliable for both paper and coins. The Right Banking Connection Is A Big Help To A Farmer! WHAT IS THE "RIGHT" BANKING CONNECTION FOR A FARMER?

One dealer had an unusually varied display. I finally saw the famous Leopold the Hog Mouth thaler from one of the German States. This princely figure is so incredibly ugly that you have to see the coin to it. It pays to shop around a bit at a bourse. This dealer had the attractive 1964 Norway lOKr, for $2.50, while two tables down, the price was a rather ridiculous $3.95. I have found that if you spot one or two items overpriced, chances are this is indicative of the entire stock. The $3.95 dealer had large $1 bills of about a $4 quality for $9.95. No doubt he will go home complaining about the business, yet It is his responsibility to know the market and to compete. Many of these dealers and several of the exhibits will be at Forest City, so be sure to save the dates, April 10-11. DOCTOR Dr. G. E.

FEATURING FIRESTONE'S EXCLUSIVE »S* ANQLE TRACTION BAR. With the phenomenal growth of big-acre, commercial farming comes the need for a new farm tire, big enough and tough enough to withstand the torque stresses of today's high-horsepower engines ... a tire that converts more horsepower into pulling power. And we have it made: the new Firestone Deep Tread tractor tire. It's built big all around. With deeper, wider, flatter traction bars, set at our proven 23° angle for more pull in the field-longer wear on the road. How much deeper? 25% deeper than original equipment tires at center tread. 42% deeper at the shoulder. And its tread is full cross- section width. Size by size, the widest rear tractor tire tread you can buy. FIRESTONE DEEP TREAD DOUBLE GUARANTEE 1.

"Traction guarantee doe> not apply to special purpose rear tractor tires uaed in rice and tane farming. And that isn't all. We added two extra plies to fortify the tread area against impacts under extreme pull. And we beefed it up with a heavier, stronger tire body, made with long-wearing, crack-resistant Sup-R-Tuf rubber, for extra seasons of service. What's more, it's made with Sup-R-Lon, the new extra-strength cord developed exclusively for Firestone tires. Combined with our new cord-processing and tire-building techniques, it welds into the toughest tractor tire body ever built. Cost a little more? Sure. But then, you get a lot more. Details?
