Author and researcher David Lange publishes Coin Board News, an electronic publication for collectors of coin boards and related hobby supplies. In the Winter 2020 issue
he published an image of a great poster advertising the Whitman coin boards (called "Coin Collector Cards" at the time). With permission, we're republishing it here.
I frequently do internet
searches on terms such as coin board, pennyboard, etc. These usually direct me to eBay listings I've saved already, but every now and then I find something truly
exciting. That was certainly the case when I came across this gem:
Yes, no one in coin board hobby has ever seen or reported this vintage poster until now. Yes, I immediately wrote to the website holder to see if I could buy it or trade for
it. No, it's not for sale. This poster is part of an institutional collection and will likely never be for sale. The only question remaining is whether another exists
anywhere. This rare jewel features Second Edition board W1¢D2f, with dates through 1938 and mintages through 1937.
