I have been talking with a few collectors lately about how to proceed with the site now that the “easy” work of putting up the checklist and price guide are complete. As you know, these lists just represent what is in the Nickel Tour book. But there are many variant cards, and even a few other non-variant cards, that are not mentioned in the book. So, the obvious thing to do is to start to add those cards to this site to make it more complete.
Today, as a teaser, I will put a card that I have not seen the variant of until I was recently going through my collection. NT0321 is of the Beaver Valley diorama which was part of the Mine Train experience. I have blogged on this card before, but at that time I was unaware that there was a variant that existed. This is a pretty classic variant, with text font and location being slightly different on the back of the card…you see it a lot. But this is also a fairly uncommon card in either form.
Anyway…I will start to get this information up on the site over the next few weeks/months (yes, I am afraid it will probably take a while!). Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any variants of your own that you want to share…many thanks to those of you that already have.
Until next time…
