Ancient Greek and Romaa Coiaa
Sought by European*.
Any number of colna that could
have been picked up for a amail sum
a short time ago now bring aum« up
to 976 and 1100. said a dealer In ths
St. Louis Republic.
"This to due to the tremendoua re
vival of Interest that has taken place
In coin collecting. There sre now in
this country more than 4,000 collec
tors who systematically buy old
oolna and are always In aearch of
"They make tripe to Europe and
other countries In quest of desired
raretles. Some of them niske trips
of this charactsr every year for no
other purpose thau to ransack ths
shops of dealers In odds and -nds on
ths othsr side of the ocean in ths
hope of finding a treaaure. which, aa
a matter of fact, they very often do.
"Most American collectors go in
for colna of United Statea issue. Not
much Interest is taken here In for
eign and In the ancient Qreek and
Roman coina, although they are the
"A good many collectors make a
specialty of gathering Colonial coins
and the prlvats gold Issue* of North
Carolina. California and Georgia,
but the large old copper cent lends
them all In point of interest. Still
other collectors go in for die vti-
rletles and mint marks. Thai small
latter on a coin which shows the
place of Ita mintage makes all tha
difference In the world to a collector
and also In the price.
"For Instance, a 20 cent piece of
1875 of the Philadelphia mint la
worth Just 16 cents, and yet u coin
of the aatne demonlnation of INT7 or
1878, bearing the two tiny letters,
'C. C.,' for Carson City, will bring
between $lO and SIR.
"The dime of 1891 Is another ex
ample. The one made In Sun Fran
cisco. with the letter 'S,' la worth
anywhere from 86 to $lO, win-reus
thoae made In other-mints lire worth
Juat their face value or a trltin over.
There were only twenty-four of the
fbrmer 10 eent piece* minted.
"Would you believe a dollar of
1»04 waa worth liVf.OT It Is. Just
the eame and that sum was imid nt
• recent auction sale.
"Yet etich la the inconsistency of
coin collecting that a dollar of 1798,
in good cbndltlon, can Ite lie bought
for 11.60. The reason for this Is that
all 1004 dollars were struck in proof
seta, and were quite limited. Proof
rolna are made by burnishing the
sheet of metal before the coin* me
stamped, tad they come forth wlih a
high polish. The low figure of the
1708 dollar la due to the enormous
number preserved in good condition.
"Many of the coins minted since
1860 bring premiums that greatly
exceed thoae for coins Issued during
the latter part of the eighteenth cen
tury and the beginning of the nine
▲ gold dollar of 1K75 In proof
condition will bring 75. The $3
gold piece of 1873 la worth SSO. All
$8 gold pieces, In facf, with the ex
ception of thoae minted at the Phila
delphia mint In 1855 and 1 874, are
worth premluma ranging tip to $75.
"The $4 gold piece of 187'J and
1880 la rated at SSO. The flying
eagle cent of 1866 brings sls, and
la hard to get at that f ice.
"Die varieties mean more than
one would autipose. Of the 1794
cents alone there are fifty-lire die
varieties, each one of which Is held
at a high premium, and of all the big
copper centa there are 8)7 die va
rieties known at the present time.

gold coins conflne themselves to de
nominations uuder $5

gold piece minted by thla govern
ment, In 114#. '
"The piece was submitted for ap
proval, but before action was taken
the new year came, so that the dies
had to be destroyed and new ones
made for 1850. This coin, tha only
of Its kind, now rests in the coin cab

At the cenaus of 1000 the number

Therefore the .patriotic American
will naturally Inquire whether this la

and the negro, and will be somewhat
reasaured to Snd thnt when the com
parison Is restricted to the nntlve
white population the proportion of
Illiteracy is reduced to 4(.4. per
1,000, or lees than one in ssrenty.
For the foreign born white the pro

the negro 4 44.7. Moreover, Inter

Attention Is railed to the fact that
among native white malea of native

the age group of 46 to 64 la excep

In the next older age (roup, 66 to
64. Since those persons who were
between 4D and 54 In 1900 were be

began. It Is evident that Illiteracy
prevailed during that conflict, when
the Interests of popular education In
the South were no doubt seriously

The line between city and country
canuot. however, be very accurately
drawn, because cities with leu than
26.0(i0- Inhabitants are uot, fur the
purposes of this study, separable
from the distinctively rural areaa.
Accordingly the area which, for con

the city, using tils term to designate

The greater Illiteracy In the coun

the regard for education la less than
