HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ONE AND ALL...

THE POD 2018


I AM HAPPY TO REPORT THAT THE POD IN THE NEW FORMAT OF 4-8 PAGES PER DISPLAY, CONTINUES TO BE WORKING OUT QUITE WELL. A FEW MINOR ADJUSTMENTS WILL BE MADE ON THE NEXT CYCLE WHICH WILL COMMENCE THE SECOND OF JANUARY 2018.

THE SET OF THE DAY HAS GROWN TO ABOUT 150 + SETS VARYING FROM 2 CHIP TO 12 CHIP IN SIZE. I HAVE ADDED SETS FROM MY BROKEN STATES AND ISLANDS. THE FANTASY SETS I ADDED ARE PRICED BELOW MY ORIGINAL COST; AND DID YOU KNOW THAT ALL OF THE SETS ARE ON A REVERSE AUCTION?

THE FIRST POD THIS CYCLE WILL HAVE THE INTRO- DUCTION OF THE TYPES OF CHIPS AND I AM MOVING THE CHIP OF THE YEAR’S IN WITH AZ-NM BECAUSE THEY ARE SHRINKING.

THE INTRODUCTION WILL HAVE 8 PAGES OF MOSTLY CALIFORNIA NON DENOMINATIONAL CHIPS FROM THE 1930’S UP. THERE ARE SOME ABSOLUTELY COOL CHIPS IN THIS GROUP AND THERE WILL BE BUYERS DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE. PLUS THEY WILL BE REDUCED IN PRICE FROM THEIR FIRST SHOWING ABOUT 4 MONTHS AGO.

A WHILE BACK I MERGED A COUPLE OF TITLES TO GIVE THAT PARTICULAR POD SOME EXTRA PAGES AND MORE CLOUT. ONE WAS THE ODD DENOMINATIONS; IT WILL BE ADDED TO THE MISCELLANOUS ITEMS. AND NOW THE ODD DENOMS HAVE GROWN ANOTHER 8-10 PAGES, WHEW…THAT IS A LOT OF PAGES FOR ONE POD. WHICH CAUSED THE ODD DENOMS TO BE SPLIT; HALF WITH THE MISCELLANOUS CHIPS (WITH SEPARATE PAGES OF 5c AND 10c CHIPS) AND HALF WITH THE SMALL STATES (WITH SEPARATE PAGES OF $10, $20 , $25 & $100 PAGES) POD. THE OTHER WAS THE COTY’s; THEY WILL BE MOVED TO THE AZ-NM, AS INDICATED ABOVE; AND DID YOU KNOW THAT I HAVE ONE COMPLETE SET OF THE COTY’S FOR SALE. I WILL SELL IT WITH CREATIVE FINANCING THAT WORKS FOR YOU AND I; IF THAT WAS A PROBLEM.

THE GUEST HARVEST STORY AUTHORS, AND MY HARVEST STORIES HAVE CONTINUED TO BE POPULAR. THE GUEST HARVEST STORIES HAVE INCREASED TO OVER 40.

THE “LOSS LEADER CHIP”, THE WANTED CHIP, AND “A PAIR TO DRAW TO”; FEATURES WILL BE DIS-CONTINUED IN THIS NEW CYCLE.

ONE RECENT ADDITION TO THE POD IS THE POST CARDS. IN EACH POD 2 OR 3 POST CARDS ARE OFFERED FOR YOUR PERUSAL. (ALSO, BE REMINDED THAT I TRY TO POST A DIFFERENT POST CARD DAILY ON THE CHIP BOARD.)

THE NEWEST ITEM INSIDE THE POD IS THE “FEATURED STATE.” THESE ALL ARE FROM MY COLLECTION AND I WANT FIND A GOOD HOME FOR THEM. MORE INFO ON THIS, JUST EMAIL ME ANYTIME.

I AM THINKING ABOUT SLOWING DOWN THE AMOUNT OF POD’S EACH WEEK. RIGHT NOW I AM POSTING ABOUT 3 EACH WEEK. IN THE FUTURE IT WILL PROBABLY AVERAGE 2 A WEEK. I WILL BE POSTING MORE INDIVIDUAL CHIPS EACH DAY.

A DOWN THE ROAD PROJECT THAT I HAVE BEEN THINKING OF LATELY IS: PUTTING ALL OF THE $1 CHIPS THAT ARE CONSIDERED BY ME TO BE FACE VALUE CHIPS ALL TOGETHER UNDER ONE TITLE LIKE THE FACE VALUE FIVES ARE NOW.

I WILL TRY TO WRITE AN UP DATE OF THE “STATE OF THE POD” EACH CYCLE.

AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, TO ALL OF OUR FRIENDS AND FRIENDS WE HAVEN’T MET YET; IN THIS VERY FUN HOBBY, ADD A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR.

THE POD WILL START AGAIN ON 1-2-18
