Dave Lange (who is working on a book about the Wayte Raymond "National Coin Album holders) writes:
I need to appeal to the readers. The only thing remaining to complete my book is the color photography. I'm lacking one important item in my own collection, and I have only low resolution Internet images.
The item in question is Wayte Raymond's "Coin Tree." This was a promotional holder in portrait format that was distributed with the coins already in place. The front cover has a drawing of a tree and reads in eight lines "THIS COIN TREE BEARS MANY GOOD WISHES AND A VERY SPECIAL GREETING" The example for which I have small photos is gold colored, but it may have come in other colors, as well.
I would like to either borrow this item from someone who has it and have my own photos taken or receive good quality photos suitable for publication. Needless to say, I would also be a buyer for such an item if it might be for sale.
I'm not familiar with this Coin Tree holder; this is similar to, but not the same as the Christmas Tree holder Michael Sullivan shared with us earlier. Can anyone help?
