6-Aleono (lo.) Upp*r Dei Molnti Thurtdoy, August 26, 1965 FROM THE ATTIC.,. ... TO THE VAULT ly Dick Palmtr 1 am indebted to Marion Will for a copy of the Aupist issue of Woman's Day, not one of my regular magazines, which contains a very interesting series of color plates on Carnival Glass. I was not aware that sunlight might harm the colors, so 1 pass this on to you. The article states that more than 500 patterns have teen identified and named. With the various potential combinations of pieces and colors - and sometimes you will find two basic colors combined this presents a vast field indeed. With such variety, there is no need to concern ones self with the unattractive patterns and heavy coloring. I might also call your attention to the article, "The Perils of a Pedestrian on the Sidewalks of New York," tho you would have a good practice session on the sidewalks of Algona during Ridiculous Days. 1 paid the price of indecision this year. While meditating about an Early American end table at BJustroms, a housewife, less Inclined to mental debate, grabbed It up. - o - The Collectors News, a monthly advertising paper deal- Ing with the entire hobby field, is now published at Grundy Center, Iowa, 50638. The subscription price is $3 per year or 2 years for $5. This paper is useful not only for a specific interest, but also for general information about what is wanted in all fields. The August issue of Coinage has a nostalgic article about B. Max Mehl of Fort Worth, Texas. Some of you may remember this name from the thirties and early forties. He was really the first big time general advertiser in the field and the prospects of a lucky find sold his buying lists by the thousands. Actually, he started around 1900.1 can well remember his ads long before I subscribed to any regular hobby publications. The firm still advertises as it has for some 30 years in Scrapbook magazine. - o - I have often stressed the. 1m- portence of having general information and specific references relating to hobby fields. With so much available and the costs relative to your own field, let alone branching out, it does seem to me that a general hobby club would serve a useful purpose. 1 am not fully aware of references in our public library, but cer- tainlv the budget must be limited for works of this type. Suppli- mental aid from a hobby club to build up a comprehensive library would be a good community service. 1 was just looking thru a book list from the Publishers Central Bureau and checked off the hobby related works. They include such titles as Dutch Colonial Antiques and Architecture, Two Hundred Years of American Blown Glass, Antiques and Their Current Prices, The Antiques Book, Heirloom Furniture, Small Antique Silverware, Directory of Antique Furniture, Directory of Historic Cabinet Woods, The Practical Book of American Guns, The Book of Snuff and Snuff Boxes, Period Furniture, The Book of Old Silver, Old Clocks and Watches and Their Makers, Romance of the Patchwork Quilt in America, American Pewter, American Needlework, Arms and Armor in Colonial America, Firearms Curiosa, Cambridge Glass, Furniture Antiques Found in Virginia, A Handbook of Popular Antiques, Fine Points of Furniture, How to Know French Antiques, Dictionary of Marks, The American Craftsman, A History of the Colt Revolver, Pennsylvania Clocks and Clockmakers, Tiffany Table Settings and several dealing with homes and interiors. Even at the sale price, these would represent quite a bill and the original price is best not mentioned. This is being written prior to my third and last for the season trip to tbe East. I hope to make, before I leave, a brief survey at the library to find out just what is available. Perhaps some sort of a list will be forthcoming. Of course, individually a lot can be done. Why not donate to the library those books that you need refer to only occasionally? - o - i just obtained a $5 National Currency note of the small 1929 series, brown seal, on the Chandler Bank of Lyons, Kansas. This note is one of the relatively few on banks retaining a family name. Both signatures are Chandlers. For a quite unusual twist, the imprint Vice has l»een added just over the regularly printed President in the lower right of the face. This is the first time I have seen this designation. If the gentleman made the top spot, it would l>e inte resting to have a note without the addition. I am asked from time to time about the value of the higher denominations in this series. A new $100 bill runs around $150, slight circulated about $130.
