Peter Rexford is bringing his collecting column to Creators Syndicate after nearly 22 years of self-syndication. And the feature’s name is changing from “The Stamp & Coin Exchange” to “Treasure Hunt.”
Rexford, who joins Creators effective March 5, told E&P that the new name “much better reflects the fascination people have in hoping to find” various collectibles.
He explained: “The feature continues to focus primarily on the most popular collectibles — including coins, currency, stamps, precious metals, and postal history.” But Rexford will also discuss things like political, sports, and rock ‘n roll memorabilia.
“The key is focusing on what the most diverse readership is interested in,” he said.
Rexford (profiled in an E&P Online story from Feb. 23, 2005) started his column in April 1985. Before that, he launched a rare stamp and coin division for a brokerage firm and contributed articles on collecting to various publications.
