2-Algona (la.) Upper DM MolnM Thortdoy, May 13, 196S The Walton League lodge was & most attractive setting for the Fort Dodge Coin Show, but several complained about the difficulty in finding it. Clubs should provide some directions in their announcements and a sign on 413 entering Fort Dodge certainly would have helped. It is Just as well that the show wasn't earlier as the little wooded glen was likely a trifle damp. The dealers along the sides were unusually comfortable with padded sofas for a casual and restful approach to the customers. The number of dealers was correctly limited to the available space and Saturday at least there was plenty of room to browse. Most of the dealers were old standbys in this area, including Dave Dorfman, L. L. Owen, Frank Klump, Don Jenson and Frank Wambach. Needless to say, there was good variety of quality material in nearly all categories. Foreign coins were particularly well represented. I think more collectors would find this field an interesting and refreshing sideline to the current U. S. series. Some caution needs to be exercised, however, in the more recent issues of the Iron Curtain countries and some older thalers due to restrikes and castings. One of my reasons for wanting to attend was to check on my identification of an old German coin dated 1604 which I had decided was a Brunswick Luneburg. This proved to be correct, but Dave Dorfman gave it quite an examination before venturing that it was kosher. I don't know enough about the technical details of casting to qualify in this field. In case you are consumed with curiosity, Heinrich Julius was the ruler at that time, which was the clue that led to my identification. - o Don Jensen provided an in- teresting example of Inflation midst his proofs, $3 gold pieces, and other "wish I could afford" items. These were original bank-wrapped packs of German 50,000 marks notes dated 1922. Each pack totaled 1 million marks and inflation was really just getting underway. German inflation notes as such are common enough, but it IB unusual to find crisp packs. - o - The cancelled Algona show drew some patrons nevertheless. I had a call Sunday from Cecil Hassler of Albert Lea who had driven down with some Mankato friends. He had searched in vain and ended up at the police station for information purposes. We had a nice visit and I sold him a note, so his trip was not entirely In vain. Actually, he would have lost out anyway, since the local show was originally scheduled for Friday and Saturday. Coin collectors Just take Sunday for granted and one day shows are usually that day. - o - Exhibits at Fort Dodge were ones that have been at recent shows in the area and were all first class. There was one small frame' devoted to the coins of Russia and Poland, a specialized area not often seen. One of the currency exhibits had a fine showing of the large National notes, all from Iowa banks which was new this season. I left before the awards were made. - o - Webster Orton showed me an 1874 token termed one penny from the local Masonic lodge. I vaguely remember seeing an article dealing with these Items, but unfortunately do not recall the story behind them. The general field of tokens is one of rising interest at shows and in the wanted sections of classified ads, A gentleman in Michigan offers $10 for those saying Good For One Ride from Hotel to Depot and from California comes an offer of $2 to $15 for types showing streetcars pulled by horses. Since many of these represented specific services, they would not have accumulated by individuals, hence the present collector supply must come from overlooked odds and ends found in old desks, etc. Here again, the law of supply and demand as rarity for any given item would frequently exceed that of the key coins. There is still a lot of hobby fun in this field as a lot of the activity is devoted to trading, rather than buying and selling. The Algona token was not In very good condition, yet how many do you suppose have survived. -flit was good to see some local attention to National Coin Week. Material was displayed by the Kossuth Coin Club in the banks and Home Federal. Al Agena told me an Interesting story about a banker in the days when each National Bank was authorized to issue its own currency. They came to the bank in sheets and were signed there when needed for issue. This fellow left for a convention in a hurry and just took a sheet of unsigned $20. It caused quite a stir at the hotel desk when It came time to pay the bill. The banker asked for some scissors and proceeded to sign and cut. This informal approach to money was Just too much, and the manager received quite a course in the mechanics of money before he became convinced that the bills were good. The strange always causes a stir. I paid a food bill the other day at Goldfield with silver dollars and most of the staff was gathered around as I went out the door.
