I've been following the posts about Hobbies Magazine with interest. I was searching for a set of this publication while researching my coin board book and would still be interested for the sake of researching my folder/album book currently in preparation. I was disappointed to learn that the ANA's Library didn't have a set, but I can see where it's only peripherally related to numismatics.
My interest lies in the fact that this was just the sort of generalist, entry-level publication that may have appealed to the 1930s-40s generation of new coin collectors who discovered that activity through boards and folders. It may be that ads or announcements for such products were included in its pages, as well as some mention from columnists and other contributors.
I'd like to know where there may be an accessible set of Hobbies Magazine. I'd also like to know how long it was in publication. I believe it began in 1933, but I've never seen a termination date. My guess would be sometime during the 1960s-70s, but I would appreciate assistance from the readers.
