FROM THE ATTIC... ... TO THE VAULT (Your Hobby - And Your N^hbor'i) By Dick Palmtr The new memorial stamp for Sir Winston Churchill is splendid, despite the off-centerplace- ment of the numeral 5. The color is in harmony with the strong portrait and it stands as a stamp of tribute without needless word clutter. Judging on the basis of advance pictures, ours will be more effective than the British. This is perhaps only fair since so many did so much better with the Kennedy commemorative. The Churchill is what I conceive that the Kennedy ought to have been. Perhaps the coming Kennedy air letter sheet will do some redeeming. - o - No doubt you realized that a typing error was involved when I referred to turning down a piece of red carnival at $6. The correct price was $60, which does exceed the extent of my desire. For $6, 1 would pounce. - o - Have you sent. in your card for this column's second anniversary drawing ? The prizes have now taken more definite shape. I am not designating them in any particular order. The framed items commemorate Hungary and Greece. The Hungarian combines two notes, two stamps and several cutouts to honor both Louis Kossuth and the 1956 Hungarian uprising. The smaller Greek frame has two fine notes with scenes of ancient Greece plus the fine classic Greek Olympic commemorative flanked by two U. S. stamps picturing the Greek flag, These frames can be used either on the wall or on a table. Three sets of Confederate post cards showing different bills of the Confederacy will be given. These will be stamped and ready for mall- ing if desired with the 4 cent Army commemorative of 1937 picturing Lee and Jackson. The stamp is in Confederate gray. I purchased a lot of 100 of these at a New York auction for use on these cards. My collector instinct demands a related stamp. I never use the ordinary regular series stamps on my mail If I can avoid it. If 1 can't, the regulars go on the bills. This does not mark •me as eccentric, merely as a stamp collector. Also added to the treasure chest Is the beautiful 10 Kr. silver Norway crown commemorating the 100th anniversary of their Parliament. This fine coin is about the size of our late silver dollar. I think you will also find attrac- tive the complete British set honoring William Shakespeare on First Day Cover from Stratford Upon Avon. There are five values in the set. Previously mentioned were the 1879S silver dollar in bright un- circulated and the interesting set of Portuguese post cards with full color portraits of military personnel thru the years, about 25 cards in all. Other goodies will no doubt be added so send your card and possible question for this column to Box 36, Algona. - o- In lieu of cash, 1 accepted an assortment of old U. S. entire stamped envelopes for some coins. While I have been out of this area for some time, it was interesting to view them again and reflect upon past holdings. 19th century and 20th century envelopes were offered by the government in a variety of colors, including white, cream, manila, oriental buff, orange, amber, amber buff and blue. It is not always easy to determine which is which without having all colors handy. In addition, the government offered a variety of sizes as opposed to the two standard sizes available today. U. S. envelopes have always offered varieties as well in dies and watermarks. When you combine dies, sizes, watermark and color, you have an enormously complicated field for specialization and some very scarce items. A specialized catalog is available, but even then it is still a science. Only a few specialize fully, which is understandable, but if the thrill of study and search is a hobby goal, then lots of stamped envelopes and a catalog will provide many hours of en- THE SEND-OFF TuMttay, May 25, 1965 Algona (la.)

They have showed it so many times that I'm sure that all interested parties have by now memorized the dialogue.
