MORE ON JIM KELLY AND HIS COINS AND CHATTER

Dave Hirt writes:

I would like to thank all the readers who responded to my questions on Kelly's Coins and Chatter.

After I sent my submission, I found I did have the first auction sale of 1959, the Cincinnati sale. It was filed in a different place. Although printed in the Coins and Chatter format, that name is not mentioned. The edition of Gengerke that I looked at also didn't list it as a Coins and Chatter sale. So, I guess with that sale, and the issue in Hobbies magazine, you could toss a coin to see whether to include them. The second 1959 sale is Coins and Chatter, and is missing from my set. Thanks again for the information.

Dick Johnson writes:

The listing of Kelly's Coins and Chatter by Tom Wetter in last weeks issue, and comments by Dan Hanelberg, David Gladfelter and David Fanning brought back fond memories of both Jim Kelly and his house organ.

As a first-year college student I sent Jim filler items I wrote from combing the pages of Frey's Dictionary of Names. I thought certain ancient coin names were curious and wrote about these. Jim published some of these in his C&C. I can't remember what else I wrote, but these were probably in the 1949 issues.

My first job out of college was with a printer in Dayton, Reynolds and Reynolds. I became fast friends with Jim., who was a nationally known coin dealer in Dayton.

I left Dayton for a newspaper job back in Kansas City. Jim remembered me, my interest in writing, and my newspaper connection when the publisher of the Sidney newspaper (20 miles north of Dayton) was looking for an editor of a weekly coin publication..

His recommendation got me the position. I responded by recommending him to be Coin World's "Trends" contributor.
