HOLLINBECK COIN SHOPS COIN BOARD STAMPS

David Lange submitted these thoughts and images relating to the Hollinbeck coin shops. Thanks! -Editor

Hollinbeck Stamp _ Coin Co. - Omaha #1 Hollinbeck Stamp _ Coin Co. - Omaha #2

I enjoyed David T. Alexander's article about Art Kagin, and I see that he noted how Art was a big mover of coin boards during the 1930s out of the Hollinbeck coin shops. I'm attaching photos of coin boards in my collection that were rubber stamped by the Omaha and Des Moines stores before sale. This was a way of reminding buyers where to bring their collections when it was time to sell, and it also served as free advertising to potential new customers who viewed their friends' coin boards. I have a few examples of adhesive address labels applied by the Omaha store, but these lack the charm of the rubber stamps.

Also attached is a photo from my coin board book. It's a portrait of Art in one of the shops that also shows a partially filled coin board in the background.

Gimbel's Stamp and Coin News Sought
Dave adds:

I also need to make an appeal to readers. I'm looking for a Gimbel's Catalog, also called Gimbel's Stamp and Coin News, from the years 1961 or 1962. I want to see if these issues included ads for the Treasury of Coins line of albums. If anyone has these catalogs with such ads, I'd like to either borrow the catalogs for scanning or get a high resolution scan of the ads.

I believe I had one of these some time ago, but deaccessioned it in my last move. Can anyone help? -Editor
