    THE COLONIAL COIN & STAMP COMPANY

    Highlight: THE COLONIAL COIN & STAMP COMPANY http://www.coinbooks.org/esylum_v13n41a20.html Dave Lange submitted these thoughts on the Colonial Coin & Stamp've enjoyed Harvey Stack's stories about the coin business in New York. In his list of dealers active there during the 1930s he mentioned all those well known today, but he omitted one name that was prominent at the time and since forgotten. When I was researching my book on coin boards, one of the publishers was Colonial Coin & Stamp Company of NYC. These were the Cadillacs of coin boards, with clear cellophane backings that showed both sides of the coins. The owner of CC&S Co. was Leiser W. Schnelling. While NYC directories of the years 1935-40 included all of the dealers mentioned by Harvey, the largest ad

    Highlight: Perhaps the most important offering in recent months was a four-piece lot of Colonial Coin & Stamp Company boards that appeared on eBay late in 2011. Included were those for Eagle & Indian Head Cents, Lincoln Cents, Shield & Liberty Head Nickels and Buffalo Nickels, all of them Second Edition, of course. These brought about $20 each, somewhat below their real value but a good price given that they were only partially illustrated. They were all duplicates for me, so I was once again the underbidder.

Certainly the most significant of these to surface in the past quarter was a major variety within the Whitman First Edition.

    COIN BOARD NEWS FROM DAVID LANGE

    Highlight: David Lange mentions a newly discovered Whitman Commemorative Half Dollar board and a scarce publication by Leiser Schnelling of the Colonial Coin & Stamp Company of New York City. -Editor There are several important developments this quarter, mostly involving Whitman boards. The most exciting is the discovery of a board long suspected to exist from a fuzzy photo in an old eBay listing that was little noticed at the time. This item is the first incarnation of Whitman's board for COMMEMORATIVE HALF DOLLARS. It measures only 7 inches wide by 9 inches tall and is a bright blue with white printing. Like the previously known variety of this title, which is of conventional size and appearance to other Whitman boards, it has no backing so that both sides of the coins may be viewed, and the

    Highlight: was a very rare First Edition Colonial Coin & Stamp Company board for Lincoln Cents. The only other examples known to me are in my own collection, and I bid on this lot as high as I dared for items that I’d have to resell. Not surprisingly, my bid fell far short, the lot bringing a price of $265.77. Another lot of five Whitman Second Edition boards included the scarce W10B2 for Large Cents 1826-1857 and brought a very reasonable $35. The remaining boards were common examples with 1938 copyrights, and all were a bit faded at the borders. At press time an interesting lot of 12 boards was being offered at $99 plus shipping, with at least one offer pending. This price would be quite fair for a collector who is starting out, though none of the entries were scarce enough to entice a more advance

    Highlight: Colonial Coin & Stamp Company — The Atlanta Hoard of 2008 is now history, and almost nothing of quality has surfaced since that time. C50A2a remains the most readily available variety in nice condition, and there is no change in value for this board alone. All others are up across most grades. Colonial boards for any series other than Lincoln Cents, Shield/Liberty Nickels and Barber Quarters (all represented in the Atlanta Hoard) are rare, and I’ve had very few of the other titles in inventory. C5O0A2 is still unknown, though it was almost certainly published.

    Highlight: The only other highlight from this first quarter was my purehase and subsequent sale of two extremely rare publisher-bound albums of Colonial Coin & Stamp Company boards. These were in the same style of brown, leatherette binders illustrated on pages 118 and 126 of my book. Both featured very elean boards but rather worn binders, and Volume II was missing the two eommemorative half dollar boards it should have held. These were evidently removed at some point, as the boards are indeed removable with a bit of effort. In addition to the pair in my own eolleetion, this brings the total population of these very rare binders to just two pair!

    Highlight: Colonial Coin & Stamp Company — A nice assortment of this company’s boards ran on eBay as a single lot for the entire year at a fixed price well above what they are worth, and several offers by various individuals failed to secure them. In the first week of January, 2013 this lot finally sold for $375, which is full retail but a good buy for a collector. It was more than I could pay for boards that 1 already had in my own collection and would be reselling. As for more conventional sales, there were several important ones that flew under the radar of most collectors. These include the rare titles for Indian Mercury Dimes and Standing Eiberty Quarters. This is perhaps the most highly sought brand among those that turn up with some regularity, and anything choice always brings strong money.

    Highlight: this time highlighting my inventory of boards published by Colonial Coin & Stamp Company of New York City. This business was established by German immigrant Leiser Wolf Schnelling around 1931. His first coin boards appeared in 1935, with only J. K. Post’s Kent Company boards predating them by a few months. Colonial brand boards were a cut above Post’s simple 25-cent items, as they used transparent cellophane as a backing instead of opaque paper. Colonial boards also featured attractive, though not always accurate, illustrations and a handsome logo of a boy examining his coin collection at a table. The First Edition of Schnelling’ s boards from 1935 showed this boy as a rather effeminate-appearing figure from the 1900 period, but this was quickly revised to a contemporary image that was mor

    Highlight: Also of note was a 16-piece lot of boards which included a few nice Colonial Coin & Stamp Company titles. With the shipping it brought $360, which is over catalog value. That’s always a good sign for the market. BCCE UPDATES Still more Oberwise varieties continue to surface each quarter. Typically these are simply different combinations of known face and back printings, and Indian Cent board Ol0Az is just such a variety. The existing Lincoln Cent board Ol0Bu having mintages through “5 months” of 1940 is now Ol0Bu.2, since Ol0Bu.l has been found which has only “ 4 months” mintages. Also new is Liberty Head Dime board O1O0A1 and Liberty Head Quarter board O250Ag. Thanks to my correspondents for reporting some of these new varieties. IT’S EINAEEY PEAPY!

    Highlight: Colonial Coin & Stamp Company — There were sporadic offerings of single boards, usually as part of mixed lots, but few of these were important enough to justify raising prices. Colonial boards for Early Nickels and the two-piece set for Liberty Head Quarters have long been considered relatively common, due to the hoard I purchased in 2008, but this is almost entirely dispersed now. I’ve held back a couple of each title for the sake of new customers, but only the nickel board now surfaces on eBay. Those seen recently have all been well used and usually have several openings punctured. I’ve seen just a few Lincoln Cent and Buffalo Nickel boards over the past year, and most of these were a mess. All other titles for this brand remain rare, especially in nice condition. Prices are up for the

    Highlight: I do have a correction to CBN #31: The Colonial Coin & Stamp Company board for commemorative half dollars having double thickness (C5O0B2b) is the variety known previously, while the newly discovered variety (C5O0B2a) is of normal thickness. Reader Chris Buck reported an error in my Oberwise catalog: on page 187 the date span of OlO0Bt actually reads 1916 to DATE. While I was confirming this I noticed that varieties O1O0B1 and OlO0Bn have no date span at all in their titles.

    Highlight: CCCE LPDATCS An important variety has been identified for the rare First Edition Lincoln Cent board by Colonial Coin & Stamp Company.

The newly discovered variety has the familiar backing of clear cellophane, and this has been cataloged as Cl0Blb. The Oberwise catalog continues to grow with minor varieties. New discoveries this quarter include Ol0Bt (dates through 1940, mintages through “5 months”) and 050 At.

I did recently learn, however, that he was released from military service on February 2, 1943, just over four months after enlisting. As a naturalized citizen from an enemy nation, I imagine he wanted to demonstrate his love for America, but at the age of 45 it’s likely that he was thanked and sent home as too old for boot camp.

    Highlight: Colonial Coin & Stamp Company — The Atlanta Hoard of 2008 is now history, and almost nothing of quality has surfaced since that time. C50A2a remains the most readily available variety in nice condition, and there is no change in value for this board alone. All others are up across most grades. Colonial boards for any series other than Lincoln Cents, Shield/Liberty Nickels and Barber Quarters (all represented in the Atlanta Hoard) are rare, and I’ve had very few of the other titles in inventory. C5O0A2 is still unknown, though it was almost certainly published.

    Highlight: The only other highlight from this first quarter was my purehase and subsequent sale of two extremely rare publisher-bound albums of Colonial Coin & Stamp Company boards. These were in the same style of brown, leatherette binders illustrated on pages 118 and 126 of my book. Both featured very elean boards but rather worn binders, and Volume II was missing the two eommemorative half dollar boards it should have held. These were evidently removed at some point, as the boards are indeed removable with a bit of effort. In addition to the pair in my own eolleetion, this brings the total population of these very rare binders to just two pair!

    Highlight: Colonial Coin & Stamp Company — A single, minor new variety surfaced during 2011, but this publisher’s catalog otherwise remains unchanged. Prices remain mostly stable for the four varieties that were included in the Atlanta Floard a few years ago, with just a handful of increases in the highest grades. A few boards have sold recently in grades that had no previous market records, and these have now been assigned values. Lincoln Printing Company — Lincoln boards continue to get no respect for their rarity in high grades, and I’ve found very few nice ones over the past year. These nearly all went to the few want list customers who understand their rarity. When 1 offer ones grading Fine or so, which are actually quite scarce, they typically receive little attention. A few values have been

    Highlight: Colonial Coin & Stamp Company — A nice assortment of this company’s boards ran on eBay as a single lot for the entire year at a fixed price well above what they are worth, and several offers by various individuals failed to secure them. In the first week of January, 2013 this lot finally sold for $375, which is full retail but a good buy for a collector. It was more than I could pay for boards that 1 already had in my own collection and would be reselling. As for more conventional sales, there were several important ones that flew under the radar of most collectors. These include the rare titles for Indian Mercury Dimes and Standing Eiberty Quarters. This is perhaps the most highly sought brand among those that turn up with some regularity, and anything choice always brings strong money.

    Highlight: this time highlighting my inventory of boards published by Colonial Coin & Stamp Company of New York City. This business was established by German immigrant Leiser Wolf Schnelling around 1931. His first coin boards appeared in 1935, with only J. K. Post’s Kent Company boards predating them by a few months. Colonial brand boards were a cut above Post’s simple 25-cent items, as they used transparent cellophane as a backing instead of opaque paper. Colonial boards also featured attractive, though not always accurate, illustrations and a handsome logo of a boy examining his coin collection at a table. The First Edition of Schnelling’ s boards from 1935 showed this boy as a rather effeminate-appearing figure from the 1900 period, but this was quickly revised to a contemporary image that was mor

    Highlight: Also of note was a 16-piece lot of boards which included a few nice Colonial Coin & Stamp Company titles. With the shipping it brought $360, which is over catalog value. That’s always a good sign for the market. BCCE UPDATES Still more Oberwise varieties continue to surface each quarter. Typically these are simply different combinations of known face and back printings, and Indian Cent board Ol0Az is just such a variety. The existing Lincoln Cent board Ol0Bu having mintages through “5 months” of 1940 is now Ol0Bu.2, since Ol0Bu.l has been found which has only “ 4 months” mintages. Also new is Liberty Head Dime board O1O0A1 and Liberty Head Quarter board O250Ag. Thanks to my correspondents for reporting some of these new varieties. IT’S EINAEEY PEAPY!

    Highlight: Colonial Coin & Stamp Company — There were sporadic offerings of single boards, usually as part of mixed lots, but few of these were important enough to justify raising prices. Colonial boards for Early Nickels and the two-piece set for Liberty Head Quarters have long been considered relatively common, due to the hoard I purchased in 2008, but this is almost entirely dispersed now. I’ve held back a couple of each title for the sake of new customers, but only the nickel board now surfaces on eBay. Those seen recently have all been well used and usually have several openings punctured. I’ve seen just a few Lincoln Cent and Buffalo Nickel boards over the past year, and most of these were a mess. All other titles for this brand remain rare, especially in nice condition. Prices are up for the

    Highlight: I do have a correction to CBN #31: The Colonial Coin & Stamp Company board for commemorative half dollars having double thickness (C5O0B2b) is the variety known previously, while the newly discovered variety (C5O0B2a) is of normal thickness. Reader Chris Buck reported an error in my Oberwise catalog: on page 187 the date span of OlO0Bt actually reads 1916 to DATE. While I was confirming this I noticed that varieties O1O0B1 and OlO0Bn have no date span at all in their titles. NATIDNAE CCIN AEDL/H DCCE At the ANA Convention in Illinois I was pleased to receive an Extraordinary Merit award from the Numismatic Literary Guild for my magnum opus, which celebrates its first anniversary in October.

    Highlight: CCCE LPDATCS An important variety has been identified for the rare First Edition Lincoln Cent board by Colonial Coin & Stamp Company. The existing variety described in my book (C10B1) has no backing, evidently as made, and this is now revised to Cl0Bla. The newly discovered variety has the familiar backing of clear cellophane, and this has been cataloged as Cl0Blb. The Oberwise catalog continues to grow with minor varieties. New discoveries this quarter include Ol0Bt (dates through 1940, mintages through “5 months”) and 050 At. In a peripheral subject, reader Chris Buck found a closed eBay listing of the only photo known to me showing David J. Malloy (Ll0Bx).

    Highlight: who produced the beloved Colonial Coin & Stamp Company boards. I did recently learn, however, that he was released from military service on February 2, 1943, just over four months after enlisting. As a naturalized citizen from an enemy nation, I imagine he wanted to demonstrate his love for America, but at the age of 45 it’s likely that he was thanked and sent home as too old for boot camp.

    Highlight: At the Whitman Baltimore Show I purchased a very rare Colonial Coin & Stamp Company album titled The Coin Collector and containing nine different Colonial boards, all hole-punched in their left margins as issued. Most had numerous red Xs next to the openings (why, oh why?), but the rare board for Commemorative Half Dollars is very clean. All of the above items were purchased for resale, and several have already been placed. I've put together a new list of boards for sale, and it's included with this mailing.

    Highlight: One major variety that escaped me but went to a reader of this publication is the long-sought first printing of Colonial Coin & Stamp Company’s board for Mercury Dimes. Variety ClO0B2a was a reserved number in my book and did not surface until recently. It features a different illustration of the coin type than the one seen on later printings, and this board is illustrated on the next page. As one might expect, the other new varieties are for Oberwise boards: OlO0Bs is new, with mintages through six months of 1940; OlO0Bw.l is an earlier printing of a known backing variety and has mintages through three months of 1941 (OlO0Bw.2 has mintages through two months of ’42); 0250 At is new, and it’s rare to find additional varieties for the scarce Barber Quarter boards.

    Highlight: Quite a few nice Colonial Coin & Stamp Company boards were acquired during the ANA Convention in Denver. A couple of these have already been placed with want list customers, including a very rare board for Commemorative Half Dollars, Lange Variety C5O0B2a. In the past I’ve had duplicates of that title only within Publisher-Bound binders, and it was a rare treat to sell a single. MAPRET ACTIVITY There were more than the usual number of eBay coin board offerings this past quarter. Most were unremarkable, and many are still trying to find buyers month after month. These include two of the three Oberwise Mercury Dime boards described in CBN #43. Both are nearly filled, and this has put their cost well beyond the value of the boards themselves. Other Oberwise boards containing partial sets have
